Bad breath (halitosis) can be very debilitating and cause serious lack of self-confidence and even problems in relationships. It is a very common problem and there are many different causes.
Persistent bad breath is generally caused by the presence of certain bacteria on the gums, teeth and tongue which produce an array of unpleasant smelling sulphur compounds. Bits of food that get caught between the teeth and on the tongue will rot and can sometimes cause an unpleasant smell, so correct and regular brushing is very important to keep your breath smelling fresh.
The bacteria on our teeth and gums (plaque) also cause gum disease and dental decay. If you see your dentist regularly this will not only help prevent bad breath but will also let the dentist look for and treat these problems.
Our professional team can help by cleaning these areas, removing the bacteria and showing you how to care for your mouth. This will remove the halitosis in most patients, restoring your confidence and giving you fresh breath once again. Causes of halitosis such as smoking or eating garlic and onion are less easy to address from a dental standpoint, though good cleaning may provide some benefit. Other causes exist including certain throat and stomach conditions, which we ourselves are unable to treat but can discuss with you and assist you to address.
