At Willow Bend Dental in Plano, we understand that everyone suffers from bad breath at one time or another. In fact, it is estimated that forty million Americans suffer from bad breath that never goes away. The term for this condition is ‘oral malodor’ or ‘halitosis’. Surprisingly, most people with oral malodor are not aware of their problem breath. That’s because our sense of smell adjusts to odors over time until they are completely unnoticeable. For bad breath control, the best method is to floss and brush your teeth after every meal. In addition, our office offers the latest breath technology from Oxyfresh.
Many people the result of bad breath comes from issues with our stomachs, while it can partly contribute, it’s not the whole story. More often than not, the order is a result of bacteria in the mouth that is often found under the gums, nooks and crannies on your teeth, and the surface of your tongue. If not addressed, the bacteria creates compounds similar to the “rotten egg” smell. No one wants bad breath, the good news is Oxyfresh products are designed specifically for this. Our dentists at Willow Bend Dental prefer to provide Oxyfresh dental hygiene kits for bad breath. You’ll love the self-confidence you get from having fresh breath.
