All of us have suffered from bad breath at one time or another. It is estimated that forty million Americans suffer from bad breath that never goes away. The term for this condition is oral malodor. Surprisingly, most people with oral malodor are not aware of their problem breath. That’s because our sense of smell has an amazing ability to adjust to odors.
The best method to control bad breath is to floss and brush your teeth after every meal. In addition, our office uses the latest breath technology from Oxyfresh.
Most people think that bad breath is a result of what’s going on in our stomachs. But that’s not the whole story. Most often, the actual odor is generated by bacteria that thrive in the mouth under the gums, and in the nooks and crannies on the teeth and the surface of the tongue. Left untreated these bacteria create volatile sulfur compounds that have a characteristic “rotten egg” smell.
Most people would probably like their breath to be more pleasant than that, and the Oxyfresh products are designed to do just that. Our office carries a complete line of Oxyfresh products. For more information about Oxyfresh and treating bad breath, get in touch with us for more information.
