How to get rid of Bad Breath:
The medical name for bad breath is halitosis.
Bad breath is normal on waking. This usually goes away after you have something to drink and have your teeth cleaned. Bad breath that doesn’t go away can be another dental condition’s warning and you need to see our caring dentists asap.
Kallangur Dental Surgery is a great place to start your quest of finding a reliable solution to bad breath.
The Temporary solutions are mint gums and breath freshener spray which may suppress bad breath for a short time but there is no evidence of permanent solution with these methods. You will need to consult a dentist to do a comprehensive checkup of your mouth.
Are you embarrassed because of bad breath? Don’t let this impact your personnel and professional life. Call now 07 3886 0933 and find how we can help you.
Why do I have bad breath? I brush and clean my teeth daily:
The most common cause of bad breath is poor dental hygiene. This leads to tiny food particles being trapped in your teeth and mouth. When the natural bacteria in your mouth break down these tiny bits of food, a foul-smelling gas is released and causes bad breath. Tooth decay and abscesses will also cause bad breath.
Certain medical conditions can also cause bad breath. These include dry mouth, an infection, conditions affecting the mouth, nose and throat, problems with your gut, diabetes, extreme diets and anorexia nervosa.
Other factors causing bad breath include eating strong-flavoured foods, such as garlic and onion, drinking alcohol, and smoking.
