7 Surprising Causes Of Bad Breath

bad breath treatment Indianapolis

Men and women who have chronic bad breath understand the embarrassment and frustration associated with this malady. There are several possible causes, some that are often overlooked:

  1. Poor oral hygiene
  2. Digestive problems
  3. Systemic infection
  4. Bacteria on dentures
  5. Gum disease
  6. Food particles on tonsils
  7. Dry mouth

At Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS, we can help you with this uncomfortable problem. If your bad breath is the result of negligent oral hygiene, you’re in luck—this is one of the easiest types to treat. If you have visited our dental blog before, you know step one: make sure you brush for a full three minutes and floss before you climb into bed.

Individuals who have no idea how long they brush can set a timer (there is probably one on your smartphone). In addition to cleaning tooth surfaces, scrub your tongue! Then take the time to carefully floss around each tooth to clean away the plaque between your teeth and keep your gums healthy.

Some dedicated oral hygiene pros brush after each meal to prevent particles of food from sitting on their teeth during the day. In addition to freshening your breath, practicing appropriate oral hygiene will improve your health.

Schedule an examination and deep dental cleaning at Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS in Fishers. Our dental hygienist will get all the plaque and calculus off your teeth. During your examination, Dr. Dale Behner will determine whether you have a dental problem that is contributing to your breath.

Possible dental causes are a cavity, a broken crown, or gum disease. If we suspect that your bad breath is caused by a non-dental ailment, such as a respiratory infection, you will be referred to an appropriate medical professional.

Treating bad breath starts with a visit to Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS. In addition to general dental care, we provide a complete menu of dental services including porcelain veneers, Invisalign, and dental crowns. Call 317-842-2337 today!

Dr's Behner and Pence provide an outstanding service and I am glad they are my dentist. Their staff is awesome also.

—Pat S.

Jeanie M.

I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

—Jeanie M.

Leslee D.

I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

—Leslee D.

Cindy M.

My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

—Cindy M.

Judy S.

The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!

—Judy S.
