what causes bad breath | Dr. Bilski | Independence, OhioWhat Does Your Bad Breath Mean?


Everybody has bad breath; you wake up in the morning and have bad breath, or you eat something and have bad breath, but not everyone has chronic bad breath. If you suffer from constant bad breath, your dentist can help!

Causes of Bad Breath

  • Food- Because once you ingest and digest it, that odor does not go away until your body processes and eliminates it.
  • Medications
  • Dry mouth
  • Dry throat
  • Mouth infections
  • Age
  • Etc.

These are all of the things that we look at as dentists. If you have bad breath, you can call us at Bilski Family Dentistry for an assessment. From there, we can recommend a treatment and provide instructions on how to help get rid of your bad breath. 

Usually, your bad breath should go away, but if not, then you probably have another source of infection, most likely gum disease.

Bad Breath is Different for Every Person

However, bad breath is different for every person, that is why it is important to go to your dentist regularly so you can catch any causes of bad breath early. Many patients will tell us, "Well, my mother had it, my father had it, my aunts and uncles had it. So, it's I'm just destined to have it. I'm not going to worry about it." But it could be a sign of something more dangerous than just bad breath. 

How to Prevent Bad Breath

The best way to prevent bad breath is to practice good oral hygiene and visit the dentist regularly. If you have bad breath, contact us at Bilski Family Dentistry to get your assessment or to schedule your regular cleanings!
