Bad Breath: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment | Overland Park Family Dentist

Everyone has experienced bad breath at one time or another. Sometimes, we’ve very aware of our bad breath, other times, someone close to us has to tell us, or we don’t even notice. Of course, bad breath can be an obvious concern in certain social situations, and it can be caused by something as simple as eating food with a strong flavor or odor, such as garlic. These situations may be embarrassing, but they’re seldom a health concern. If you’re experiencing more chronic bad breath, however, you might want to talk to your Overland Park dentist.

Causes. The most common causes of bad breath include foods and beverages with strong flavors and odors such as garlic, onions, coffee, and sugar as well as habits such as alcohol consumption and smoking or using other tobacco products. Some medications can also produce bad breath indirectly by leading to dry mouth, which in turns leads to bad breath. In fact, dry mouth is a major contributor to bad breath. This is why we tend to notice bad breath first thing in the morning, especially if we sleep with our mouth open. Some call this “morning breath,” and it’s a very real thing. Chronic bad breath may have more serious causes, which we’ll get to in a moment.

Solutions. You can stop most cases of temporary bad breath with simple oral care routines that you should be doing anyway. In the event that you’re experiencing bad breath at work or during a social engagement and can’t brush right away, you can always chew some sugar-free gum or use one of those breath strips. In other situations, however, bad breath can indicate a more serious condition.

Concerns. Chronic bad breath may be an indication that you’re not brushing or flossing as regularly or as well as you should. It can also be an indicator of more serious conditions such as tooth decay, gum disease, acid reflux, or some even more serious diseases including certain types of cancer, diabetes, liver and kidney disease, and others.

If you’re experiencing chronic bad breath, the first thing you should do is to review your lifestyle and habits. Do you brush for at least two minutes twice a day and floss once a day? Are you drinking plenty of water? How’s your diet? Do you smoke or use other tobacco products? If you make these kinds of simple lifestyle changes and still experience bad breath, you’ll want to talk with your Overland Park dentist.

Bad breath may be something simple and easy to address, but it could also be a symptom of a more serious underlying condition. It’s better to be safe than sorry, and your dentist will be able to help you identify and address the cause of the odor.

Of course, at Watts Family Dental, we’re always happy to see you, whether it’s to help address bad breath or simply to perform your biannual exam. Give us a call anytime at (913) 338-3384 to schedule an appointment or chat with a member of our friendly staff!

    My name is Shannon Mattingly from USA. My husband left me for another woman. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..

  3. Five months ago, I invested about $87,000 into Bitcoin,with the aim of diversifying my trading portfolio. However, with my strict habits of growing my account to 240% before taking profits, I never attempted any withdrawals, not until last month when I tried to withdraw but all effort was in vain. I called the account manager and explained the situation, he told me I would be able to withdraw after 3 working days which sounded shady to me. Three days went by, still no withdrawals, I tried reaching out to the manager and customer service line but none of them were reachable till this moment. I shared my experience with my colleague at work, he introduced me to Backend Recover at Rescueteam DOT Com.He is a private investigator who helped me recover all my money back.

Nothing has changed that i’m aware of ,all my bills are paid on time and not much card debt .I was so surprised how it is possible to drop so much and have no idea why .I saw an article that says thirty days late payments will stay on your reports for two years. I now remembered I had one late payment about four years ago. It was a sad experience for me and my lovely wife .we needed an immediate solution , that was when we came across some local  community  beneficiaries reviews of NEWHORIZONCREDIT1 ,then i contacted  them at (  NEWHORIZONCREDIT1ATGMAILdotCOM ) .I was so shocked when i received an email regarding changes on my credit report .I discovered all my negative tradelines  were off  and my credit score increased from 617 -785 within five working days .

  11. I had several collection accounts that went to debt collectors and were very old. My problem was that they had been resold and been put back on my profile as a new debt. It was really hurting my credit score and I needed someone to help me stop it and then raise my scores to a high 700 across all credit bureaus so I can be qualified for a home. I searched for credit repair help on trustpilot and R E M O T E R E P A I R at C L E R K dot C O M came highly recommended. He was able to stop and rectify the problem, raising my scores high enough to get me and my family a new home. glad i followed my instincts in letting him help us.

Com’ for proving to be a good credit agent and helping me clear up the debts thereby improving my credit scores.

  13. Rebuilding a good credit score can be very frustrating and usually takes up months or even years depending on how consistently you pay bills completely & on time. I used to be among these unfortunate categories until recently when I had this job interview. I was invited to attend by The Mosaic Company in Florida , and after a background-check by the company I was placed on hold because of my terrible credit report score .A 550 FICO score is considered very poor and generally won’t get the best terms for loans and credit etc . Thanks to NEWHORIZONCREDIT1 who came to my rescue and performed their magic on my credit score report , now I can boast of a credit score of 790 . contact them at NEWHORIZONCREDIT1 AT gmail DOT com . Trust me they are reliable ! .

  14. I used to Have some bad debts, Unpaid student loans and even a criminal record probably as a result of past mistakes or the bad choices made, All of these negative records in one way or the other cause serious damage to my credit-worthiness on my credit reports , thus deflecting my score.
    Thanks to (NEWHORIZONCREDIT1 AT GMAIL DOT COM ) who came to my rescue and cleared all the negativities on my credit reports and boosted my score .
