Management of Bad Breath

Updated: Dec 17, 2018


If brushing and flossing does not get rid of the bad breath, you may consider a visit to the dentist. The dentist will help identify the cause of the problem and treat it accordingly.


Key takeaways:

  • Foods that have strong odors such as onions and garlic will leave an odor until they pass through the body. Brushing and flossing only temporarily masks the odor.

  • Halitosis could be a sign of gum disease, dry mouth, chronic acid reflux, dental caries, diabetes, and respiratory problems such as pneumonia.

  • Good oral hygiene, regular dental visits, drinking lots of water and quitting smoking are ways to prevent bad breath.

If your dentist determines that your mouth is healthy and the odor is not of oral origin, you may be referred to your family doctor or to a specialist to determine the odor source and treatment plan.
