Got bad denture breath? There is relief.
Bad breath. We’ve all experienced it at one time or another. But what about those with “denture breath”… is there a cure?
Bad breath might seem like the smallest of problems, but for many, especially denture wearers, bad breath is a daily issue that, at its extreme, can affect relationships, affect daily life, cause isolation and make the bad breath sufferer lose their self-esteem and self-confidence.
Most people will never be told they have bad breath. Instead, they’ll be left to interpret signals, such as people turning away or stepping back from them when they’re speaking, covering their own nose or mouth, or even avoiding you as you approach.
A bad breath sufferer writes, “I know my breath smells bad because people turn away when I speak to them and when I go on a date, my date will only let me kiss her cheek. It’s been taking a toll on my self-confidence and I’m feeling depressed about it.
If you want to find out if you suffer from bad breath, ask a trusted friend or relative to be honest with you. If you are uncomfortable asking someone, simply take your dentures out, put them in a baggie or plastic container for several minutes, open it and you’ll have your answer after that first sniff!
There are many causes of bad breath, such as poor oral hygiene, food choices and even disease, but bad breath caused by denture wearers is usually enhanced by the nature of traditional denture material. If you have traditional dentures, the denture material is usually a breeding ground for bacteria and makes it even more important that you practice exceptional oral hygiene such as:
- Flossing/brushing/using mouthwash
- Cleaning your gum tissue after removing your dentures
- Regularly cleaning your dentures
- Cleaning your tongue
