Preventing Halitosis

Thursday, May 1, 2014


80 million people in the US are affected everyday by Chronic Halitosis, also known as bad breath. Bad breath is caused by a sulfur compound that is left by bacteria created from decaying food particles and other leftover debris that was not removed by brushing or flossing. Scheduling regular teeth cleanings and maintaining proper oral hygiene is one of the best ways to combat bad breath

You can prevent bad breath by practicing proper brushing techniques. This includes brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day. Brushing your tongue, cheeks and the roof of your mouth can help remove food particles too. A tongue scraper can also be an effective tool for removing unwanted odors. Yahoo Health has even more tips on how to stop bad breath

Regular checkups can also help determine the source of Halitosis. Call our office in Delaware to schedule your next appointment. For more dental health tips, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

From Our Patients:

Dr. Lechner has been my dentist for as long as he's been in Delaware. He was the first dentist to recognize that my having had rheumatic fever meant that I should take an antibiotoc prior to a dentist visit. From that time forward, I have not come down with any sort of illness following a dentis appointment. Thank you for all these wonderful years of healthy teeth and general good health!
