About bad breath

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, is a common oral health issue that affects thousands of people in the UK. Many people feel embarrassed and self-conscious, especially in social situations, due to bad breath. However, we can assure you that you’re not alone and there are easy ways to tackle this problem and increase your confidence.

Bad breath is sometimes caused by eating strongly flavoured foods such as onions, garlic and spicy food. It can also be caused by smoking and taking some types of medication. However, it most commonly caused by poor oral hygiene, which results in bacteria collecting in the mouth. When bacteria feed, they release gases that have an unpleasant odour. Most cases of bad breath are linked to bacteria located at the back of the tongue.

Treating bad breath

Temporary cases of bad breath can usually be alleviated by brushing the teeth and maintaining good oral hygiene at home. We also recommend chewing sugar-free gum after eating if you find that you are prone to developing bad breath after eating or drinking.

If you suffer from bad breath on a regular basis, the best course of action is usually to visit your dentist and dental hygienist on a frequent basis. Cleaning treatments are much more intensive than brushing at home and they target plaque and tartar to freshen up the mouth, remove bacteria and prevent bacteria build-up. We will also be happy to offer tips for cleaning at home and we recommend sticking to a thorough daily oral hygiene regime and cleaning the tongue, as well as the teeth.

If you’re embarrassed by bad breath or you’re looking for a solution that really works, call us now!

Putting an end to Bad Breath in Leeds

Saturday, July 20th, 2013

2058693_blogThere are lots of things that can go wrong in your mouth, from tooth decay and gum disease to rotting teeth and you would normally attempt to do something about this in Leeds, because if not, this can lead to an even more awkward situation that may be harder to get rid of- bad breath. It’s not only poor oral hygiene and conditions in the mouth that can cause foul odours; there are a lot more complex issues that could be attached to your problem, maybe even serious, as bad breath indicates decay of some sort somewhere in either your mouth, or your body. You need to seek immediate advice and help from your dentist; it could mean a bit of repair work is required, and it does mean you will have to ring the changes to your lifestyle. You must try to cut down on some of the seedier habits you have a love of, like smoking, drinking and poor diet; this will help to re-address some level of balance to your teeth and gums again. But the real work comes with your oral hygiene and it must greatly improve. New products may be required: herbal remedies are very good for fighting bad breath as well, so you should throw everything you can at the condition the first time you discover you are having problems.
