Lack of regular brushing and flossing leaves small food particles wedged between the teeth that can collect bacteria and emit chemicals, like hydrogen sulfide -the same compound that gives rotten eggs their characteristic smell.Brushing alone will not cure certain cases of halitosis (bad breath).
Dry Mouth is an ideal breeding ground for poor oral health which can lead to not only bad breath but also cavities and mouth infections. Saliva is essential for keeping your mouth cleansed as it contains proteins and enzymes that help flush away food and bacteria. Medications are the most common cause of dry mouth. We would be happy to discuss options to treat your dry mouth and to prevent further dental issues.
