What causes bad breath?
Bad breath is caused by bacteria giving off gases when they feed. In most cases of persistent bad breath, bacteria gather at the back of the tongue. Most cases of bad breath are linked to poor hygiene and this can easily be resolved with good oral hygiene. Regular brushing and flossing prevents bacteria from collecting in the mouth, as well as ensuring your teeth look healthy and bright. Occasionally bad breath can be caused by taking certain types of medication and swapping drugs could help to solve this problem.
We recommend seeing a dental hygienist if you have bad breath on a regular basis. Our expert hygienists offer intensive cleaning treatments, which remove bacteria and plaque and leave your mouth feeling clean and fresh and your teeth looking shiny and white. Intensive cleaning also helps to reduce the risk of gum disease and decay. If you suffer from bad breath, it is beneficial to schedule regular dental checks and hygiene sessions.
