“My neighbor’s bad breath is scaring me.”

Do you live in Maple Grove, Minnesota or nearby? Bad breath isn’t just a problem for careful brushers in Minneapolis, Osseo or Champlin. Your neighbors in Plymouth MN can spend all day brushing their teeth and still come out with bad breath.

But why?

I’m Jamie Sledd with Arbor Lakes Dental. In business since 1992. My specialty is restorative dentistry. At Arbor Lakes Dental we perform family dentistry and dental crowns regularly. As a favor to Maple Grove, Minnesota I’d like to take a few minutes to share with you some insight about bad breath and give your neighbors some places to start in improving or removing the offending odor.

Brushing just the teeth may not remove food particles between the teeth and up in the gums. Bacteria can grow and stink from hidden floss-only locations. Gently brushing the gums, sides of the mouth and the tongue in addition to the teeth may make the difference.

Also, the food your neighbors are eating can affect the air they’re releasing. Onions, garlic and coffee are likely to show up on the breath no matter how much time is logged brushing.

Illness, infection, and allergies can all cause salivation issues which in turn upset the control of bacteria in the mouth. Diabetes, kidney failure, radiation therapy, liver malfunction, dry mouth or even postnasal drip can cause an odor.

Finally, dentures or a removable appliance may also carry bacteria that needs to be cleaned and freshened up on a regular basis. Bacteria balance in the mouth is ever changing.

1. Brush and floss the teeth as well as brush the tongue, gums and sides of mouth.
2. Enjoy onions and garlic a little less.
3. Stay on top of health issues.
4. Keep dentures clean.
