Bad breath is actually very common, and usually the persons with it are unaware they even have it. Nevertheless, the cure for bad breath can be effective and relatively fuss-free.
In the majority of cases, bad breath is generated in the mouth, where bacteria produce gases which tend to have a foul smell. These bacteria often hide in the areas that you miss when you clean your teeth, as well as on the back of your tongue.
Smoking is another prime culprit – by drying your mouth it makes the odour worse and also builds-up harmful tar and nicotine inside your mouth.
Under our care, we will investigate your mouth, diagnose the exact cause of your bad breath and show you exactly how to tackle it as part of your regular routine. If gum disease is the cause of halitosis, our dental hygienists will clean the pockets between your teeth and gums to remove the ingrained bacteria.
If you have any concerns about the freshness of your breath please do not be embarrassed to tell us. Once we are aware of your concerns we can act to ensure your confidence is restored quickly. Before your appointment do not smoke, use any mouthwashes or chew any gum. Try not to wear any after shave or perfumes. This will allow us to make a fair judgement as to whether a problem exists. Achieving lasting fresh breath is just a phone call away. Call us at 0116 276 4693
