If your bad breath needs help, then you have come to the right place! Dr. Joan M. Jupina DDS with Jupina Dental in Hayward, CA, understands how taxing persistent bad breath can be on your professional and personal life. That is why we are happy to talk to you about how to reverse bad breath.

Stubborn bad breath, also known as halitosis, can have many underlying causes such as cavities, foods and drinks, gum disease, and many more causes that can put a hindrance on your smile. If a breath mint will not seem to do the trick to dismiss your bad breath, the first thing to do is call your dentist as soon as possible. Your dentist will be able to give you a thorough exam and cleaning of your teeth and gums to help wash bacteria away that could be causing it. The good news is there are things you can do on your own to help resolve your bad breath.

First, you can start with brushing and flossing your teeth regularly. The correct amount of time to brush your teeth is for two minutes a day, twice a day. This will help keep the foul bacteria and food particle away from your teeth and gums, keeping your breath fresh. Using an effective mouthwash can also be effective for killing bacteria. Sugarless gum is also excellent because it helps your saliva keep flowing washing bacteria away from your teeth.
