How to Get Rid of Your Bad Breath — For Good!

Bad Breath Marietta GA

Has breath odor been threatening to ruin your social life and relationships? Take back control over your life and banish bad breath for good. Treating halitosis is easier than you think, as these tips from Dental Care at Kennestone show.

Brush and Floss Daily

Did you know that poor oral hygiene is the most common cause of bad breath?

Bad breath is highly preventable. You most likely just need to improve your brushing and flossing to experience fresher breath. Good oral hygiene removes odor-producing bacteria and slows the formation of smelly dental plaque.

Clean Your Tongue

If your breath doesn’t improve with more brushing and flossing, then you might need to pay attention to another surface in your mouth — a very large surface.

Your tongue has a lot of surface area that can host countless millions of sulfurous bacteria. Cleaning your tongue daily with a toothbrush or tongue scraper reduces this bacterial film and freshens your breath.

Drink Lots of Water

Dry mouth or dehydration can cause stinky breath. Freshen up by drinking more water throughout the day.

Cut Out Smelly Foods and Habits

Coffee, dairy, sugary drinks, onions, garlic, fish, cigarettes, chewing tobacco — there are many things that can cause bad breath. Try to identify and avoid items that make you feel self-conscious about your breath.

  • I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
    she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!

  • I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

  • Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

  • I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!

  • The dentist, Dr. Buffington, hygienist, and staff were professional and efficient. Dr. Buffington provided an excellent explanation to my question so that I understood the situation. High recommend this dental practice.

  • Dr. Buffington has to be the kindest, most patient dentist in the world. The staff is amazingly attentive, non-judgemental and offers a very comforting experience. I appreciate how patient they are with me, a 44-year old that still cries and would rather give birth (without medication) than have dental work. I hope you catch my drift😉

  • I really like Dr. Buffington. She gave me a plan that gives me hope about a TMJ issue. Everyone on the staff was professional and seemed genuinely caring. I would highly recommend the office.

    It’s a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and they don’t try to sell you on things you don’t need.

  • I highly recommend this dental practice. They took prompt and amazing care of me to address a TMJ episode. Dr. Buffington and all employees I encountered were professional, friendly, caring and knowledgeable. They set me on the path of recovery and have earned my respect and business going forward. How refreshing to engage with a business that truly understands customer service.
