Did you know, bad breath could be a warning sign of something serious? Well, it’s true! That is why our team here at Meyer Dentistry in Greenville, South Carolina, is happy to talk to you about your bad breath, and give you tips on how to overcome it.

Halitosis is a dental condition that keeps bacteria in your mouth that could be causing your bad breath. There are many triggers for causing bad breath, however the best way to fight it is to talk to Dr. James Meyer. Your dentist will be able to give you more insight to the cause and determine if gum disease is the culprit of your bad breath. If not, there are other plans you can do to fight it.

Brushing twice a day, while flossing every night are key factors in fighting bad breath. Using a mouthwash to fight the rest of the bacteria can also be helpful at clearing your mouth of bad breath. Sometimes, smelly bacteria can stick to your tongue, so be sure to scrape and wash your tongue off, to keep bacteria from spreading.

The most significant thing to remember is to visit your dentist regularly. Regular dental checkups are the key to your oral health.
