Yes, you can certainly find yourself being teased a bit by a loved one if your breath is through-the-roof awful! While it’s funny if it’s just passing morning breath or you ate something very strong, it’s not so funny when the problem hangs around. We call this type of bad breath chronic and you may hear it referred to as halitosis. It’s not funny because it means there’s probably something wrong either with your approach to keeping your smile clean or you’ve got a problem with your smile health. We encourage you to find out what could be going on (and to do something about it … hint: come see us at our Grand Prairie, TX practice!) so you can get back to life with a healthy mouth.
Someone out there is saying activated charcoal toothpaste is a good idea (even if it isn’t). How do we know this? Well, because there’s quite a lot of buzz surrounding this teeth whitening trend. The question is: Who is saying it’s a safe, smart, effective idea? On the other hand, who is saying that it isn’t? As you may have gathered to this point, we’re not promoting the use of this type of toothpaste because it’s not beneficial for your smile. In fact, it can be altogether dangerous for your grin. The great news? There are other, safer, highly effective ways to make your smile bright again. You can learn all about our cosmetic treatments in Grand Prairie, TX when we see you at our practice for a visit, so come in soon!
