Halitosis or bad breath is a common oral condition that affects 1 in 4 people. It is caused by the lack of proper oral hygiene practice. If you don’t brush and floss your teeth consistently then expect that your mouth will have an unpleasant or foul odour. Another cause of bad breath is the occasional morning breath that is normal because of the lack of saliva flow at night but definitely needs tending to if it persists throughout the day.

How to avoid bad breath?

Root canals are an effective treatment with a very high success rate. Some of the common indicators that a root canal may be needed are:

  • Proper oral hygiene is the key to fresh breath. You need to get rid of the plaque and food particles that stay in your mouth for long periods of time.
  • Avoid eating foods that have a strong and intense odour and eat foods like raw carrots and celery instead
  • As much as possible, quit smoking tobacco and cigarettes that can cause severe mouth odour.
  • Drink lots of water every day
  • Don’t forget to clean your tongue, preferably using a tongue scraper
  • Chewing sugar-free gum or sucking on sugarless candy can greatly help
  • Try to avoid breathing with your mouth
  • Visit the dentist regularly–at least twice per year–for professional cleaning and oral exam.
