Bad Breath

20 / 07 / 2015

Bad breath is normally caused by bacteria in your mouth.

Gum disease can also cause bad breath, so you need to make sure that you are correctly brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and cleaning between your teeth using floss or interdental brushes. Regular visits to the dentist and hygienist are also important to help maintain good oral health.

You can still have bad breath with good oral hygiene, and healthy teeth and gums. The smell therefore can come from the back of your tongue so you can gently brush your tongue or use a special plastic tongue scraper.

If despite this advice, you are still worried please contact us to book an appointment with your dentist.
