bad breath treatment Toms River

Anyone with chronic bad breath understands the embarrassment it can cause. If you’re coping with persistent sour breath, ask us about it at Rotem Dental Care in Toms River NJ.

There are several possible causes of bad breat, some of which may be overlooked:

  1. Poor oral hygiene
  2. Digestive problems
  3. Systemic infection
  4. Bacteria on dentures
  5. Gum disease
  6. Food particles on tonsils
  7. Dry mouth

If your bad breath is the result of inadequate oral hygiene, you’re in luck—this is one of the easiest types to treat. Step one is making sure you brush for a full three minutes and floss before you climb into bed. Don’t forget your tongue!

Some people brush after each meal to prevent food particles from sitting on their teeth during the day. This can help, too.

Other possible causes include a cavity, a broken crown, or gum disease.

The first step to treating bad breath is a cleaning and checkup at Rotem Dental Care in Toms River NJ. We offer complete general and  restorative dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!
