Bad Breath

Holmdel, NJ Dentist Gentle Dental

Only a dentist can get your breath it’s freshest. More people today are concerned about their breath whether it is in dealing with business associates, personal friendships or romantic relationship. Most of the mouth washes, gums and mints sold over the counter are ineffective even though they give you feeling of freshness! 

Foul odor is the result of oral bacterial activity that are feeding from a small pool of post nasal drip or food on the back of your tongue. Deep fissures on your tongue also provide perfect environment for those bacteria. At any given time, they may be producing hydrogen sulfide with its rotten egg smell, methyl mercaptan and sketole giving a smell of feaces, cadeverine giving smell of corpses, putrescine smells like decaying meat or isovaleric acid smells like sweaty feet. They have a field day from putrefying postnasal drip or from poor oral hygiene, unclean dentures and abscesses in the mouth. Dry mouth caused by smoking, mouth breathing, fasting, stress and medications can exacerbate the situation. Technology may offer identifying bad breath and attacking it in the future.  Till then the nose is the only instrument to sniff halitosis and cleaning the tongue is a main treatment.

Use of mouthwash containing chlorine dioxide to kill odor producing bacteria (Over the counter products can not kill these germs or odor) and Rotadent Electric Toothbrush is a complete answer to your great Oral Hygiene along with Waterik. We can prescribe you what is best to treat your bed breath.
