Bad breath is a very common problem that can leave you feeling embarrassed and self conscious. Lots of people suffer from bad breath from time to time, but if it’s a recurring problem for you then it can have a very negative impact on your daily life. At Clifton Dental Studio, our wonderful team of dental hygienists can help you to say goodbye to bad breath for good, so you can be confident when attending social events, work conferences and family gatherings.
Why do we get bad breath?
Many people get bad breath after eating and drinking strong flavours such as coffee, garlic or spicy curries. However, many cases of bad breath are connected with poor oral hygiene, which results in an unnecessary amount of bacteria gathering in your mouth. When the bacteria feed, they realise foul-smelling gases and this is why bad breath occurs.
Smoking is also a major cause of bad breath.
How can bad breath be treated?
If your bad breath is persistent, and you don’t just get it after consuming certain foods or drinks, there is probably an underlying reason for this. Our hygienists will identify the cause and look into the various ways of resolving the issue. Dental hygiene treatment methods are very effective in removing plaque and bacteria from the mouth, as well as providing a deep and intense oral clean. At Clifton Dental Studio we recommend regular oral hygiene appointments, paired with your daily oral hygiene regime at home.
Chewing sugar free gum after eating smelly foods is another way of avoiding bad breath triggers.
