Halitosis, more commonly known as bad breath can be a real stinky problem to have.

Quit often, we have patients asking us, if there is a solution to this problem. The American Dental Association recently sent this video link.  I hope you find it as informative as I did.

Common causes are:

Dry mouth
Bacteria accumulation on the tongue
Food particles left behind after eating
Eating food and drink like garlic, coffee, alcohol

Best way to help prevent bad breath:

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water
Chew sugar free gum or sugar free mints to stimulate saliva
Use a tongue scraper to remove bacteria from the tongue
Brush and floss thoroughly after each meal
Eating a healthy and nutritious diet

The ADA (American Dental Association) just informed us of this comical video with real solutions to get rid of bad breath! Taken from lifehacker.com dated 6/22/15.

Regular dental check-ups can help diagnose and treat bad breath that may be caused by a more serious problem such as dental decay or gum disease.
