Sorry, but it’s time to talk about halitosis, aka bad breath. Few things are more embarrassing than noticing people leaning back when you speak or having someone downright tell you you have bad breath. Sometimes, you can trace bad breath back to something you ate. But, if you are noticing bad breath throughout the day, it could be a signal of oral health issues.
Sexy Smile, Sexier Breath
If you have bad breath, you’ve probably tried everything to cure it. You may have purchased over-the-counter remedies or perhaps tried oil pulling. Maybe you even tried changing your diet and boosting your oral care routine, but to no avail.
Chronic bad breath is incredibly common. The medical term for this condition is halitosis, and it affects more than 60 million Americans each year. Having persistent bad breath can drain your self-confidence and impact your social life. Luckily, the dentists at Dr. Patty Miami are experts at treating halitosis and can help you regain the confidence to laugh and speak comfortably.

How To Cure Bad Breath
The first step in curing bad breath is seeing a qualified dentist to determine the source of the issue. Then, your Dr. Patty Miami dentist will focus on two critical aspects to clear up your condition:
- Eliminating halitosis-causing bacteria
- Neutralizing the odor that the bacteria emit
Eliminating Halitosis-Causing Bacteria
Again, sorry to be the ones to break this to you, but your mouth is teeming with bacteria. The good news is not all bacteria are bad. In fact, some types of oral bacteria are actually necessary for breaking down food and digesting it. The bad news is that your mouth is also home to hundreds of kinds of halitosis-causing bacteria.
To get rid of this bacteria and start on a path towards fresher breath, you want to start cleaning your mouth as meticulously as possible. This begins by brushing your teeth twice daily, preferably with a soft-bristled electronic sonic toothbrush.
You already know that flossing is vital, too. Since toothbrushes can’t get into hard-to-reach places, like in between your teeth and under your gums, you need to floss at least once daily. We recommend our clients to invest in a water flosser because they offer deep cleaning without hurting your gums. Our favorite is the Sonicare Airflosser! Finally, clean your tongue using your toothbrush or a tongue scraper. The tongue is a great hiding place for bacteria, so you want to keep it as clean as your teeth.
A professional cleaning at your dentist’s office will be incredibly more thorough than what you can do on your own. It is recommended that you see a dentist for a routine exam and cleaning every six months. During this appointment, your dentist will also determine if you have other oral health problems that are contributing to halitosis.

Teeth Cleaning FAQs
How Much Does A Teeth Cleaning Cost In Miami?
A professional dental cleaning in Miami, FL can cost anywhere from $75 to $200. This rate will depend on the location of your dentist and their professional experience and qualifications.

How Often Should You Have Your Teeth Professionally Cleaned?
At least every six months. Ideally every 3-4 months. Why? Because research shows this is the average time it takes for bacteria to become strong enough to damage teeth. And while 4-5 cleanings a year may sound like a lot, keeping your teeth clean and healthy prevents oral problems, actually saving you money down the road.
Can Dental Cleanings Damage Teeth?
No. A dental cleaning will not damage your teeth. Although professional dental cleanings are deeper than any cleaning you can perform at home, dental tools can’t hurt your teeth or damage your enamel. Cleanings safely remove plaque, tartar, and disease-causing bacteria.
