Halitosis Basics

Posted .

Halitosis is a common condition that 25 percent of the population is affected by. With a quarter of the population being affected by halitosis it is important to understand what it is and how to best treat it.

Our doctor, Dr. Anthony Shaia, understands the common causes of halitosis and is happy to help you. Even more so, our team here at Shaia Dental Care in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, wants to help make halitosis something you don’t have to be worried about.

Halitosis is bad breath that can be caused by tobacco use, food, drink or even bacterial imbalance in your mouth. What you put in your mouth, and how well you clean it can directly affect the quality of your breath.

If you feel like you have halitosis, consider proper toothbrushing for at least two minutes every day, twice a day, and make sure to brush your tongue as well. Flossing daily can also help remove any food and bacteria that may be stuck between your teeth and causing bad breath.

If you continue to have bad breath and would like to schedule a professional cleaning, call us at 440-884-9898. Our helpful team of professionals is waiting to help you.
