Our practice provides exams and cleanings that ensure good dental hygiene for kids and adults. We specialize in treatment for bad breath in Indiana, helping people regain their confidence.

Basic Facts About Oral Hygiene

Part of preventative dentistry, oral hygiene is the practice of cleaning the teeth and gums to avoid future disease. Brushing and flossing at home is an important part of maintaining good oral hygiene, but regular visits to the dentist also play a role. Only an experienced dentist can properly clean your teeth and gums and examine your mouth for bad breath or other conditions. For a clean and healthy smile, visit our office for a teeth hygiene appointment.

The Causes of Halitosis

While occasional halitosis is normal, chronic bad breath may indicate a dental issue. Halitosis causes include poor oral hygiene, tooth decay, gum disease, certain medications, and consumption of alcohol. Eating foods containing onion or garlic can also cause bad breath. When you visit our office, one of our dentists will examine your case to pinpoint the cause of the mouth odor and recommend bad breath remedies. We’ve helped people of all ages achieve healthy oral hygiene in Indiana.

Make Oral Hygiene a Priority

Following a proper oral hygiene regimen can protect your mouth against bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. Using dental hygiene products can keep your tooth enamel healthy and strong. In addition to your home oral hygiene routine, visit our office for regular cleanings. Our knowledgeable dentists thoroughly clean your mouth and can provide a bad breath cure, if necessary. Contact us today to learn more.

Defeat Your Bad Breath

Bad breath caused by poor oral hygiene should receive halitosis treatment from your dentist. Your dentist will address the gum disease or tooth decay that is causing the condition and offer a bad breath treatment solution. You’ll also receive oral hygiene instructions that help you keep your teeth healthy while at home. Many times, people find that their bad breath is eliminated when they practice good dental hygiene.

Practices for Healthy Teeth

Ensuring the health of your teeth takes just a few minutes a day. Here are some teeth care tips to incorporate into your oral hygiene routine and get rid of bad breath:

  • Don’t smoke or use tobacco
  • Brush your teeth after every meal using a soft- or medium-bristle brush
  • Floss between teeth each day
  • Avoid consumption of sugary foods
  • Receive regular oral hygiene treatment and exams from the dentist

Do You Have the Symptoms of Bad Breath?

The most common symptom of bad breath is mouth odor, which is sometimes accompanied by dry mouth or a bad taste. If the bad breath persists or worsens, schedule an oral hygiene appointment with one of our dentists. The bad breath may be caused by tooth decay or gum disease.
