man checks his breath

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, can be embarrassing and distressing, affecting your confidence and social interactions. While occasional bad breath is normal, persistent halitosis may indicate underlying dental issues that require attention. At Engineered Smiles, we understand the impact that bad breath can have on your quality of life, which is why we are here to explain the possible dental issues that can contribute to halitosis and provide solutions to help you achieve fresh breath and optimal oral health.

Poor Oral Hygiene

One of the most common causes of bad breath is poor oral hygiene. When food particles and bacteria accumulate in the mouth, they can lead to plaque buildup, tooth decay and gum disease, all of which can contribute to halitosis. Practicing good oral hygiene habits such as brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily and using mouthwash can help prevent the buildup of bacteria and keep your breath fresh.

Gum Disease

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a bacterial infection that affects the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. In addition to causing symptoms such as red, swollen gums and bleeding during brushing or flossing, gum disease can also contribute to bad breath. The bacteria associated with gum disease produce foul-smelling gases that can linger in the mouth and cause halitosis. Treating gum disease through professional dental cleanings and proper oral hygiene can help alleviate bad breath associated with this condition.

Tooth Decay

Untreated tooth decay can also contribute to bad breath. When bacteria accumulate on the surface of the teeth and produce acids that erode tooth enamel, it can lead to the formation of cavities. These cavities provide a breeding ground for bacteria, which can release foul-smelling gases and contribute to halitosis. Addressing tooth decay through dental fillings or other restorative treatments can help eliminate the source of bad breath and restore oral health.

Oral Infections

Infections in the mouth, such as abscesses or oral thrush, can also contribute to bad breath. These infections can result from factors such as poor oral hygiene, compromised immune function or underlying medical conditions. The bacteria or fungi associated with oral infections can produce foul-smelling gases that contribute to halitosis. Treating oral infections through professional dental care and appropriate medication can help eliminate bad breath and restore oral health.

    Jennifer W.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Jean R.

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    Sanjay P.

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
