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!


Solving the riddle of Bad Breath in the City of Leeds

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

468416_blogThe city of Leeds is a lovely and highly active place to live in, but it can also demand a lot from you and if you want to give your opportunity to get ahead of the game, it could mean that you’ll have to present yourself the best you can. However, all this will be rather pointless if you suffer from bad breath, as this will terminate your chances straight away; getting to the bottom of it may also take a lot of work as well. You can start by curbing any bad habits you may have and then improving your oral hygiene. If though you suspect that the condition is still present after you have tried these options, it could mean that you are suffering from gum disease and/or tooth decay. In any case, you’ll need to see your dentist from the off, not only to repair any damage that has occurred in your mouth, but you can get tips about how you can go about improving your lifestyle in order to rid yourself of this condition. Remember a golden rule here: anything that smells bad means that something is going wrong somewhere in your body, so by acting fast, you can prevent it from getting worse- but act you must.

The Embarrassing nature of Bad Breath in Leeds

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

1341367_blogYou’d like to think that you do the utmost to woo friends and work colleagues in Leeds with the way you dress and generally present yourself when you are out and about. However, it doesn’t make the blindest bit of difference how great you look if you are being dragged down by bad breath and this can be very embarrassing for you. The thing is, you may be quite unaware of the problem and people will be very coy in pointing it out to you as well; you may however find yourself being shut out by your ‘friends’ and it will thwart any chances of getting on at work. As soon as you discover that you have a problem, you should attend to it as quickly as possible, as it does suggest that something bad is going on in your mouth; worse still, in your body.  Seek immediate advice and treatment from your dentist; you should put a stop to bad habits such as smoking and excessive drinking, better your diet but most important of all, you should greatly alter and then improve your oral hygiene, for this is most likely to be the root of your problem. However, if all this fails to work and cure you of your bad breath, you should seek counsel with your doctor.


Bye-bye Bad Breath in the City of Leeds

Monday, December 19th, 2011

You have probably met someone in the city of Leeds who has really pungent breath, especially towards the end of the evening. It really isn’t pretty talking to someone with such a problem as this, yet they probably don’t know that they have it, and if that’s the case, it begs the question whether you have it too. Bad breath is the advertising board that something is going wrong with mouth and/or your body. Many smells arise from having a dry mouth, gum disease or tooth decay and if you can taste something ‘off’, then there is a good chance it isn’t going to smell nice either. A bad lifestyle- smoking and drinking for example- and a woeful diet can all add to the problem of bad breath. It isn’t the end of the world though and you can challenge the situation, but you are going to have to work hard to rectify the situation. Your dentist can address the gum disease and tooth decay when necessary and give you advice on how to handle your nutrition and hygiene at home, but it is down to you. Change your diet for the better to give your immune system a boost so that the saliva levels in the mouth remain high. Then really go for it on the oral hygiene front with your brushing and flossing and then treat your teeth and gums to a holiday by massaging in some really good herbal remedies. Always drink lots of water and ensure that you have a good selection of sugar-free gum and boiled sweets about your person to aid the mouth’s hydration. Do it and you can beat it, but remember, anything that smells pungent indicates decay somewhere inside you.
