Bad Breath in Gilbert, AZ
People are often concerned about why their breath stinks but are unaware as to what causes it. Plaque, the sticky buildup on your teeth, collects bacteria that cause bad breath. Trapped food between the teeth also adds to the problem. The best way to prevent bad breath is by brushing and flossing daily. Bacteria also gets built up on the tongue so scrapping off the film on top of the tongue is important. Individuals who take multiple medications and suffer from dry mouth can also experience a bad odor. There are products on the market that can help moisten the mouth by creating a saliva substitute. One last thing to help decrease bad breath is by avoiding foods with a strong odor. Please give Power Ranch Dental a call if you have any other questions.
