Bad breath is a problem, which troubles us all from time to time, but if you have bad breath on a regular basis and it’s starting to impact your day to day life, there may be an underlying reason and we can help! We will identify the cause and rectify the problem to make you feel more confident and ensure your breath smells lovely and fresh!
Why do I have bad breath?
Bad breath can be caused by many different things, but it is most commonly linked to poor oral hygiene. If you don’t brush your teeth on a regular basis, bacteria gather in your mouth and when these bacteria feed, they let off gases, which have an unpleasant odour.
Bad breath can also be linked to smoking, taking some types of medicine and eating certain foods, such as onions, garlic and spicy dishes.
How can City Dental help?
At City Dental we have an experienced team, which has expertise in dealing with bad breath. Our amazing hygienists can provide a range of treatments, as well as advice and information about oral hygiene, diet and brushing tips, to help banish bad breath for good. We often recommend seeing a dental hygienist on a regular basis if you are prone to bad breath. Hygiene treatments are designed to deep clean the mouth, remove bacteria and reduce the risk of oral disease. You will also feel really refreshed after treatment and your teeth will feel smooth and look a lot cleaner and brighter.
We also recommend trying to avoid triggers, such as strong-smelling foods and we can also help with giving up smoking.
Many people find it beneficial to chew gum after eating and we recommend sugar-free gum. Chewing gum helps to stimulate saliva production, which cleanses the mouth, as well as giving you fresh smelling breath.
