Treating bad breath and maintaining fresh breath must be a normal part of one’s personal hygiene.
A list of some personal hygiene procedures that one performs on a regular basis and considers a normal part of proper habits include: grooming, cutting hair, trimming nasal hair, trimming ear hair, shaping eye brows, removing body hair, waxing, clipping nails, manicure, pedicure, brushing teeth, flossing teeth, rinsing with mouthwash, etc.
Many believe that brushing, flossing and rinsing helps get rid of embarrassing bad breath. That cannot be farther from the truth due to incorrect conventional conditioning.
The primary reason Dentists recommend brushing teeth is to remove plaque build up by applying the mechanical action of the bristles on your teeth. Toothpaste’s primary function is to introduce fluoride to your teeth and to strengthen the enamel. Most people brush, primarily, when they want to get a fresh taste in their mouth, and secondarily, to have healthier teeth and gums. But when it comes time for professional cleaning, one visits the Dentist on a regular maintenance basis every six months, or more frequently, depending on ones dental health condition. This visit is to remove calculus (under the gums) and cavities (inside your teeth) that can not be eliminated by simple home care.
Achieving fresh breath is no different. A simple, home care process cannot eliminate bad breath. To bring bad breath under control, one must see a specialist and address all factors that contribute to halitosis (bad breath). The bacteria that cause bad breath live in areas of the mouth that are difficult to access and clean. This is why professional services are needed to attack these bacteria, to access the area and clean it. Once bad breath is brought under control, the patient can maintain the results by simple home care. However, due to the bacterial root cause of bad breath, just as in cavities, regular maintenance procedures must be performed with varying frequency depending on a patient’s oral bacterial flora.
Dental care and bad breath care must go hand in hand. However, it is important to note that certain agents used in dental care such as toothpastes and mouthwashes can actually be bad for halitosis or bad breath and these agents contribute to bad breath.
