You might not have done anything about your bad breath yet. However, it’s been there for a while, it’s not getting better, and it’s definitely not going away. While occasional yucky breath is not usually a cause for concern (this is usually an issue that follows a particularly powerfully-seasoned meal), it is a worry when it’s chronic. Why, you ask? What’s the big deal and why is it so important to address an ongoing breath issue with our Ankeny, IA team? Think about some explanations that offer clarity.
It May Represent An Oral Illness Requiring Care
Your bad breath that’s hanging around is a very big deal because, though you may not have realized this until this very moment, it is often a red flag. Of what, you ask? Well, oral illnesses that require restorative care can often lead to unpleasant odors, which become bad breath as you open your mouth. Usually, the culprit is decaying tissue, bacterial buildup, infection, or something similar. So, what you want to do to protect yourself twofold (to get your oral health back up to snuff and to rescue your breath) is to visit our team, to find out what might be going wrong, and to then visit us for the treatments you need in order to accomplish these goals!
It May Negatively Affect Your Relationships
Yes, you read that correctly. If you have ongoing, chronic bad breath that you’re just trying to deal with or pretend isn’t there, you may actually be putting your relationships in harm’s way. Of course, people who love you aren’t simply going to disown you because you have smelly breath! However, you may be putting your significant other in a very uncomfortable position (nobody wants to smell yucky breath every day), you may be making yourself seem less than approachable and hygienic to colleagues, etc. Freshen up that breath by coming to see our team!
It May Be Something Simple That You Cannot Identify
We remind you that you just might not be able to figure out what’s wrong with your smile that’s leading to bad breath. So, essentially, you’ll be spinning your wheels for a very long time, if not forever, which will never guide you back to fresh breath. To quickly rectify this situation, just schedule a dental checkup, so we can tell you what’s wrong and offer a solution. (You might just need to learn better brushing or you may need to drink more water!).
