Chewing Gum Can Help – But See Your Dentist to Beat Chronic Bad Breath

You may be bugged by bad breath. The good news is, simply chewing gum can help. But if the problem persists, you need to visit your dentist. That’s because problems like dental decay and gum disease are often underlying causes. With our help, you can beat chronic bad breath!

As seen in this short video, chewing gum does a good job of eliminating stinky breath compounds from your mouth. Gum stimulates saliva flow, which washes the compounds away. So it’s a good idea to keep some sugar-free gum handy. For an even bigger benefit, choose a gum that contains xylitol, a sweetener with natural cavity-fighting properties. 

If your bad breath lingers, you need to visit our Fort Smith, AR office. A good dental cleaning may be all that’s needed. It gets rid of the bacteria behind bad breath (and other dental problems). You may need further treatment if cavities, gum disease, or even an infection are behind your halitosis. We’ll identify the underlying cause and eliminate it. Your breath will improve – and so will your overall oral health.
