How Bad Breath Can Affect You

Bad breath can affect relationships, professional opportunities and health. While many people experience bad breath occasionally, for others it´s a daily problem. But the good news is it´s a treatable condition.

According to Dr. Patricia Silva, DDS at By The Lake Dental, the majority of bad breath cases can be treated by keeping good oral hygiene, regular visits to the dentist, changing diets and cutting out bad habits, like smoking and drinking. But in some cases, bad breath could be related to diseases and different kind of treatments must be used. Bad breath (halitosis) can be caused by many different things, such as digestive tract problems, diet, dry mouth, periodontal disease (gum disease) and overgrowth of harmful bacteria in the mouth.

If you suffer from bad breath, let the hygienist know about your concerns when you go for your next hygiene appointment. An assessment will be made to determine the cause and the appropriate treatment.

At By The Lake Dental, we use a system of antibiotic rinses to treat any bad breath problems related to the mouth. This can help reduce harmful bacteria and restore the microbial balance in your mouth. Learn more about bad breath treatment.
