BAD BREATH AND GUM DISEASE Bad breath ("halitosis") is commonly associated with gum disease in all its various forms. In gum disease's early stages, characterized by bleeding gums, a buildup of the sticky bacterial film called "plaque" eventually causes "pockets" to form between teeth and gums. As food particles become trapped in these pockets, breath begins to smell like rotten eggs or rotten cabbage. As gum disease worsens, bacteria that grow in the absence of oxygen (called "anaerobes") may indicate that gum disease is worsening. At this point, inflammation from bleeding gums provides a nastier set of "anaerobic" bacteria that feed on blood and immune cells. This stage of more serious gum disease is characterized by bad breath that tastes metallic and smells putrid. If you are bothered by this condition, don't be shy about discussing bad breath with your dentist. Professional care is always the best course to pursue when unusual symptoms occur. We're here at DENTAL ARTS GROUP to offer our patients comprehensive, gentle, family dentistry, including dietary advice, routine maintenance care, restorative work, and cosmetic approaches to enhance any smile. All our staff members are exceptional in their care of every patient who comes through our doors at 1136 Hartford Ave., Johnston. Please call us for an appointment at 401-521-3661. Office hours are Monday- Thursday 8a.m. to 4p.m.; Friday 8a.m. to 12p.m. P.S. In order to cure the bad breath associated with gum disease, it is necessary to root out the harmful bacteria, allow tissue healing, and promote the growth of probiotic bacteria.
