Highlands Ranch: Is Your Low-Carb Diet Giving You Dragon Breath?

Highlands Ranch Dentist And Bad Breath

Many residents in the Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, and Denver area mistakenly believe that all bad breath is linked to insufficient brushing. The truth is that there are myriad causes of halitosis. Your Lone Tree dentist can help you identify the cause of your problem and discuss how to cure bad breath.

What you eat may have a lot more to do with it than you think. Because foods begin to be digested the second they enter your mouth, and because they are absorbed and distributed throughout the body, you probably will be able to smell strong foods like onions and garlic long after you’ve eaten them. So, purchasing a mouthwash at your local Lone Tree drugstore will only mask the smell. Constantly sucking on breath mints is also not a good idea. This may bring additional oral problems – especially if the mints have sugar. If you want real relief, you may need to avoid the strong foods altogether.

Also, many dieters in and around Denver find that their diet regimen is making it harder to keep their mouth fresh and clean. Low-carb and no-carb diets promote fat burning, but the side effect of bad breath can be caused by the chemicals released during this process. Increasing water intake can help alleviate this.

Lastly, flossing regularly is often the key to truly fresh breath. Many Lone Tree folks don’t realize how much food can be stuck between their teeth, and this food can cause halitosis if it isn’t removed. More importantly, the food particles turn into plaque which causes cavities and gum disease.
