Bad Breath and Your Health

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

Unbelievable news!Are you often embarrassed by your bad breath? Do you find yourself covering your mouth or avoid getting too close to other people? Amherst dentist Dr. Walter Neuhaus and Dr. Karl Neuhaus wants you to know that your bad breath could more than just embarrassing. Chronic bad breath may be an indicator that you have a more advanced health condition.

Body Oral Connection & Halitosis

Your oral health is directly related to your overall health. Many medical conditions can have negative impacts on your oral health, and vice versa. Chronic halitosis can be a symptom of serious medical conditions and should be addressed by your general physician. Dr. Neuhaus can help rule out dental health concerns as the cause of your halitosis. If your bad breath is stemming from a dental health concern, our Amherst dentist office provides comprehensive and personalized restorative dental care to restore your optimal oral health.

Bad breath could be caused by tooth decay, dry mouth, or even gum disease. Bacteria built up in your teeth or in your gums can become pungent smelling. Addressing these advanced oral health concerns may eliminate your bad breath. Dr. Neuhaus will work with you to build a treatment plan that will address the root of your oral health concerns. A healthy and stable oral foundation provides a long-term base for a beautiful and fresh smile.

Remember, if your bad breath goes away after a good brush and floss, you most likely have nothing to be concerned about. Certain pungent foods and mouth breathing can cause temporary bad breath. With a diligent oral hygiene routine, you should be able to keep this form of bad breath under control and prevent future tooth decay.
