Chronic bad breath can happen to anyone. Even individuals who practice impeccable oral hygiene can suffer from the condition.
Are you struggling with bad breath?
Schedule an examination and deep dental cleaning at Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper. Our dental hygienist will get all the plaque and calculus off your teeth. During your examination, Doctor Stuart Youmans will determine whether you have a dental problem that is contributing to your breath.
In addition to inadequate dental hygiene, the following can cause chronic bad breath:
- Dry mouth
- Digestive issues
- Systemic infection
- Gum disease
- Food particles on tonsils
- Bacteria on dentures or a broken crown
At Aspen Ridge Dental, we can help you with this painful malady. Even if you think you brush and floss adequately, here’s a refresher course:
Brush for at least 2 minutes
Men and women who have no idea how long they brush can set a timer (there is probably one on your smartphone). When you are finished with your teeth, don’t forget your tongue!
Then take the time to carefully floss around each tooth to wipe away the plaque between your teeth and keep your gums healthy.
Some extra-careful oral hygiene pros brush after each meal to prohibit particles of food from sitting on their teeth during the day.
Possible dental causes are: a cavity, a broken crown, or gum disease. If we suspect that your bad breath is associated with a non-dental ailment, such as a respiratory infection, you will be referred to an appropriate medical professional.
Treating bad breath starts with a visit to Aspen Ridge Dental. In addition to general dental care, we provide a complete menu of dental services including cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, and dental implants.
