Frequently Asked Questions About Breath Freshening
Question: What causes bad breath?
Answer: A variety of factors can cause bad breath. Certain foods, such as onions, can lead to halitosis. In addition, poor oral hygiene can allow bacteria to break down food particles. The process coats the teeth in a layer of plaque and leads to poor breath. In addition, plaque buildup can also lead to gum inflammation, another factor behind halitosis.
Question: Can preventive dentistry help?
Answer: Yes. When you take better care of your teeth you can improve the smell of your breath.
Question: What if I need further treatment?
Answer: We actually offer an array of BreathRX products designed to address halitosis. The products are 100% alcohol free and contain active ingredients that target and destroy harmful bacteria. As an added benefit, the treatment also targets the same bacteria that can lead to gingivitis and gum disease.
Question: How do I ensure better breath in the future?
Answer: We recommend a preventive approach. You should be brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day, once in the morning and again before bed. In addition, you should also floss once a day before going to bed. We also recommend having your teeth cleaned once every six months to completely remove plaque from the surface of the teeth.
