Our dentist, Dr. Roger Druckman in Denver, Colorado, is happy to help you combat your bad breath. There are many triggers to bad breath, and when it comes to overcoming it, our team is happy to help you.

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, can be difficult to combat at times. However, there are many things you can do to help. For starters, think of your oral hygiene habits. Keeping a healthy routine of brushing and flossing regularly will help keep your breath fresh and your smile healthy. You can also try to use a therapeutic mouthwash that kills bacteria and germs in your mouth. There are also different kinds of toothpaste you can use that helps reduce the plaque and bacteria that can nest on your teeth.

There are cases when certain dental conditions such as gum disease, cavities or dental abscesses can cause halitosis. If any of these conditions are creating your situation, be sure to schedule an appointment with your dentist right away. If dry mouth is a factor in your lifestyle, try chewing sugarless gum and drink plenty of water. Saliva is an aid to your smile because it washes away bacteria and keeps your smile hydrated.

If you have questions about your halitosis, please call us today at 303-691-2860 to make an appointment. Our friendly staff is excited to assist you with your oral health.
