What is Dental Hygiene?

Oral hygiene involves the cleaning of teeth and gums with dental hygiene products. Visiting the dentist regularly for screenings and teeth hygiene cleanings are a vital part of proper oral hygiene. Neglecting your oral hygiene can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, or even bad breath. Our office provides treatment for patients of all ages, including dental hygiene for kids. Schedule a cleaning today by contacting our office.

Causes of Bad Breath

Medically known as halitosis, bad breath has several possible causes. Eating foods with garlic or onions or drinking alcohol are common halitosis causes, but persistent bad breath can be caused by tooth decay or gum disease. Without good oral hygiene, bacteria builds up in the mouth, creating a foul odor. At our practice, we get to the root of the issue and provide effective halitosis treatments. Many people find that getting their dental and oral hygiene issues addressed is the bad breath cure.

Oral Hygiene: The Value of Good Practices

Oral hygiene plays an important role in your overall dental health. In addition to your home care routine, it’s important that you receive regular screenings and oral hygiene cleanings from your dentist. Without excellent oral hygiene, you may develop gum disease, tooth decay, or even bad breath. We specialize in bad breath in Peoria. We provide bad breath remedies that allow you to smile and speak with confidence.

Bad Breath: Steps to Elimination

Bad breath can be an embarrassing problem that makes you feel self-conscious around others. Fortunately, chronic bad breath is easily treated with oral hygiene products. When you visit our office for your oral hygiene appointment, we’ll discuss with you the cause of your unpleasant breath and offer solutions for eliminating it. Bad-smelling breath doesn’t have to affect your confidence—call us today to learn more about halitosis treatment and get rid of bad breath

Guidelines for Keeping Your Teeth Healthy

Healthy teeth start with an excellent dental hygiene routine. Here are some oral hygiene instructions to get you started:

  • Use a toothpaste formula that contains fluoride
  • Brush your teeth daily using a soft- or medium-bristle brush
  • Floss between teeth every day
  • Quit smoking – or don’t start
  • See a dentist regularly for cleanings and exams

Recognize the Symptoms of Bad Breath

The primary symptom of bad breath is an unpleasant odor coming from the mouth. However, persistent bad breath can be a sign of poor oral hygiene or a more serious dental condition that should be addressed by a dentist. If you’re experiencing constant bad-smelling breath, book an appointment with our office for bad breath treatment.
