Improve Your Gut Health, Improve Your Breath

Having clean, fresh breath does boost your confidence and self-esteem. Unfortunately, what is happening on the inside of your body or stomach can affect your breath.

As such, it is important to improve your gut health to minimize any instance of embarrassing dental hygiene issues. Today, as your Calgary SE dentist, I  will share a few tips and highlight how bi-annual cleanings also factor into having better breath.

How Gut Health Can Connect To Your Breath

There are any number of reasons why you might develop bad breath. Some of those might include:

  • Mouth sores
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Food lodged in teeth
  • Surgical wounds
  • Bacteria infected stones in your tonsils
  • Gut bacteria i.e. H.Pylori

The H. Pylori can become a disruptive factor in your stomach if it increases to disproportionate numbers. When they do, the chances of developing ulcers increase as well.

Duodenal ulcers can then lead to bad breath and be an indication of what is known as dysbiosis. Improving your gut health and avoiding this is typically done by changing the foods you eat.

Dentist in Calgary SE Recommends Improving Your Gut Health and Bi-Annual Cleanings

These issues are not insurmountable. When dealing with bad breath, the first step is to identify what is causing the problem, making a diagnosis.

Visiting your dentist our Auburn Bay/Seton dental office is the next step on how to get rid of bad breath.

My team of dental hygienists and I work with you to not only element the possibilities but recommend an effective treatment plan to improve gut health. This can range from limiting stress in your life, eating certain foods, taking probiotics, staying hydrated among other remedies. The best alternative is dependent on your individual case.

You can see results in as little as a few weeks.

So take the first step in learning how to improve your gut health and improve your breath. Make an appointment and mention your bad breath concerns.
