Raleigh, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/11/2014 -- Embarrassed by bad breath? Raleigh dental practice, Glenwood Smiles, doesn’t think you should be, and has recently explained the secret to fresh, healthy breath!
Glenwood Smiles is a Raleigh family and general dental practice. They provide cleanings, restorations, and prevention for periodontal disease, gum disease, bad breath and other dental issues.
Bad breath can be caused by a variety of factors, including stress, hunger, and digestion. It’s also caused by improper oral hygiene and built up bacteria in the mouth. Chronic bad breath, called halitosis, can be an indicator of early-stage gum disease or periodontal disease, making it important to discuss your symptoms with your dentist.
To combat bad breath, Glenwood Smiles dentist, Dr. Rebecca Schmoor, suggests practicing proper oral hygiene.
“Proper oral hygiene is one of the best ways to ensure your breath is fresh and smile-ready,” said Dr. Schmoor. “For optimum oral health, you should floss, scrape your tongue and use mouthwash.”
She also suggests replacing your toothbrush every 3 months, sipping water throughout the day, and scheduling regular dental visits every 6 months for proper teeth cleanings.
