Do you Suffer with Bad Breath?

Are you embarrassed about bad breath or do you know someone who is suffering with this problem?

We have all seen the adverts telling us that if we use this mouthwash all of our problems with bad breath will be cured….unfortunately these products only mask the problem and do not deal with the actual causes.

The most usual causes of bad breath are:

Bacteria on your teeth and tongue
Food trapped between teeth
Strong smelling foods such as Garlic, Coffee and Onions
Gum Disease and Tooth Decay

Some medical conditions cause bad breath:

Dry Mouth(xerostomia) which can also be caused by some medicines
Infections in your lungs, nose or throat
Liver or Kidney problems

Preventing Bad Breath:

It is important to brush your teeth for 2 minutes twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
Dont forget to clean your tongue as well
Clean between your teeth with interdental brushes or dental floss
Use a mouthwash with an antibacterial agent
Chew sugar free gum – it helps the mouth to make saliva and prevents your mouth from drying out

Talk to your dentist or hygienist. They can advise you on the best way to treat the problem. They will also show you the best way to clean your teeth and gums.

Here at Tavistock Drive Dental Care oral hygiene is a top priority in our aim to help you maintain a healthy mouth and smile.
