Imagine you are starting a new job and are going to talk to your new boss for the first time. Confidence, like what you get with beautiful teeth from Chesterfield Smile Design, is key to your success.
But there’s a hitch. As you reach out to shake your new boss’s extended hand your broad smile exposes rows of pearly white teeth, but when you open your mouth to exchange greetings you worry about bad breath.
Perhaps your breath is not as a pleasant as you had hoped. Bad breath is a worry and possible embarrassment for many individuals. Regular dental checkups at Chesterfield Smile Design can help alleviate your concern over bad breath.
The technical term for bad breath is halitosis. Many behaviors and health conditions can cause or exacerbate halitosis. One of these factors is the food you eat. Onions and garlic are both known for having a potent effect on your breath.
Brushing and flossing daily is a key step in curing bad breath. Food particles can build up in your mouth and foster bacteria which can cause bad breath. This not only includes the food particles that may get stuck between your teeth, but also the food that collects around your gums or on your tongue. Brushing and flossing daily can help reduce the number of food particles that stay in your mouth and cause bad breath.
Other factors to think about include dry mouth, tobacco use, and health concerns such as infections.
