Naperville Bad Breath Treatment
 




Bad Breath - Solution

Treat gums and mouth with Perio Trays + Peroxide Gel

 

Bad breath is a common source of embarrassment that may have many causes. Below is a list of problems that contribute to this problem.

Gum Problems-

Poor oral hygiene and gum disease can be a cause of bad breath. If you don't brush and floss, bacterial plaque remains in your mouth. Germs release toxins such as hydrogen sulfide — the same chemical that gives rotten eggs their bad odor. An invisible sticky film of germs forms on your teeth causing gingivitis and tooth decay. Eventually, pus filled pockets form between your teeth and gums (periodontitis) creating infection and bad breath. Wearing Perio Trays will eliminate germs  and oxygenate the gums removing odors.

Tongue-

The tongue also can hold bacteria that produce odors. Brush your tongue with Perio Tray Gel to freshen if up.  Dentures that aren't cleaned regularly or don't fit properly can harbor odor-causing bacteria and food particles. All these conditions lead to bad breath.

Food Types-

Rotting food particles around your teeth and gums can cause a bad odor. Eating foods containing onions and garlic are well known causes of foul breath odors. Additiionally, drinking coffee and smoking will create more problems.

Dry Mouth Conditions

Saliva cleanses your mouth, washing away food particles that may cause bad odors. Any condition of dry mouth can contribute to foul odors. Dry mouth naturally occurs while sleeping, causing morning breath. Some medicines can lead to a constant dry mouth.


Bad breath (halitosis) is a problem that needs to be addressed. The most common source of breath odor is germs and plaque under your gums. We can make special Perio Protect mouthguards for you. Wearing these mouthguards with prescription perio medicine in them will push the medicine under the gums to get to where the odor is coming from. If you have a breath problem, this is the most effective way to deal with it.
