Bad Breath Causes and Solutions

General & Cosmetic Dentist serving Hoboken, Jersey City & Hudson County areas of New Jersey


Bad breath is often just a result of things you put into your mouth. This includes tobacco products, beverages, and nearly all types of food. When bad breath is caused by these things, the easiest way to solve the problem is through proper dental hygiene such as brushing and flossing after every meal. However, as tobacco and alcohol both absorb into the lungs and bloodstream, dental cleaning alone will be insufficient to completely eliminate these odors.

In addition to your at-home routine, you can help keep your teeth healthy and your breath fresh by visiting our Hoboken office twice a year for through dental cleanings.

Serious Issues

Chronic bad breath may be an indication of a serious oral health issue. Things such as gum disease and tooth infections often lead to bad breath, and dental cleaning alone will be insufficient to address these issues.

If you suffer from chronic bad breath, you should visit one of our experienced dentists for a thorough examination. We can identify the issue and provide you with the most effective solution to both eliminate bad breath and prevent serious oral health problems.

If you suffer from chronic bad breath and dental cleaning alone has failed to address the problem, please contact The Practice at Maxwell Place today to schedule an appointment at our Hoboken, New Jersey location.
