“Don’t forget to overlook tongue as a culprit for bad breath”
Do you ever experience bad breath or anyone informed you that your breath is stinking??
In our busy life schedule 80% of people regularly used to avoid perfect oral hygiene.
Daily brushing and flossing, and regular professional cleanings, will normally take care of unpleasant breath. Bacterial plaque and food debris can accumulate on the back of the tongue. The tongue’s surface is extremely rough and bacteria can accumulate easily in the cracks and crevices.
Eliminating periodontal disease and maintaining good oral health helps to reduce bad breath please note Some medications can also contribute to bad breath.
Don’t forget your false teeth should be properly cleaned otherwise it can cause odour because of bacteria and food particles. If you wear removable dentures, take them out and clean them thoroughly before replacing them.
If the odour is due to gum disease, Dr.Nechupadam Dental, Marine Drive can either treat the disease, we have a specialist in team who can treat gum tissues. Gum disease can cause gum tissues to pull away from the teeth and form pockets. When these pockets are deep, only a professional periodontal cleaning can remove the bacteria and plaque that accumulate. Kindly do the regular checkups and get in to do a better oral hygiene for your brighter future.
