Chronic bad breath can happen even when you do everything right: brushing and flossing after meals, using mouthwash, and having regular checkups at The Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria VA.
If you are doing everything right but still coping with bad breath, don’t make any changes right away. Brushing longer and more forcefully isn’t likely to make much of a difference. In fact, brushing too vigorously is dangerous to gums and contributes to gum recession.
Ordinary bad breath is usually caused by the things we eat and drink. Food debris builds up on the teeth and forms plaque, which is bacterial. The best defense against it is to brush and floss after every meal.
Whatever the cause, you don’t have to live with bad breath. The best thing to do is to let us know.
