Bad breath arises from a variety of factors, like digestive disorders and dry mouth, but it can also occur from gum problems and decaying dental restorations.
One way to rid gums of bad-breath bacteria is to reduce the amount of plaque that lives on your teeth. Spaces in between the teeth and gums are an ideal place for this type of bacteria to live and breed. A deep gum cleansing, performed by a dentist or hygienist, can flush it out.
Over time, fillings can also crack and may no longer fit teeth properly, leaving a hard-to-clean space where bacteria can live. Your dentist can replace old fillings and crowns that may be collecting plaque.
It’s important to talk to your dentist and let him or her evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums to determine what treatment is best for you.
