 What Are The Causes Of Bad Breath? (Click here for Video)

Halitosis is the medical name for bad breath. The most common cause of bad breath is tiny food particles (plaque) trapped in your teeth and mouth. When the natural bacteria in your mouth break down these tiny bits of food, a foul-smelling gas is released. This causes bad breath. Good oral hygiene helps prevent bad breath.

 Other causes of bad breath may include:

  • A telltale sign of periodontal disease is bad breath. (Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease)
  • Yeast infections in the mouth such as thrush
  • Tooth decay, Cavities and broken-down teeth.
  • Unclean dentures-Poor fitting dental appliances-Inferior dentures (porous acrylic bases can become contaminated with anaerobic bacteria.
  • Faulty dental work (Broken feelings and bad Crowns)
  • Gum or Tooth Abscesses
  • Lifestyle habits such as smoking and drinking
  • Dry mouth syndrome (inadequate saliva production often occurs when we get older and can also be a side-effect of certain medications)
  • Sinus/tonsil infections/Acid reflux
  • On rare occasions, few medical conditions such as Liver disease, Kidney and Lung infections. Diabetes and cancer may cause bad breath. In these situations, our practitioners at ProCare Family Dental will perform a comprehensive examination to help identify whether bad breath is caused by some problem relating to your mouth or refer you to a Physician if medical condition is suspected.                                                                                                                                                                                      

    Bad Breath Treatment: Treating Halitosis in Morton Grove,  IL

The key to successfully addressing Bad Breath is identifying the root cause.  Our Dentists at ProCare Family Dental can provide diagnosis and treatment for bad breath to help restore your confidence-and often improve your dental health.

Our Morton Grove Top Rated Dentists will discuss your medical history, lifestyle habits and evaluate your oral health to determine the cause of your halitosis and recommend an effective treatment option. There are several common causes of halitosis that can be remedied with personalized dental care and oral hygiene.

In our experience, a great deal of bad breath is the result of gum disease (Periodontal disease), which might simply require professional teeth cleaning and polishing by one of our Hygienists, and in cases of advanced gum disease, a more complex treatment such as root planning (deep cleaning) and the use of antibiotics would be recommended. Treatment can range from periodontal therapy, to restoring bad teeth and replacing failed restorations. to special rinses and oral hygiene products to be used regularly. Our Dentists, may also recommend lifestyle changes to improve your breath and overall health.

However, while these treatments will help promote good breath, without good oral hygiene practices and regular (at least twice yearly) check-ups by our Dentist, it’s highly likely that bad breath will return.
