Fresh Breath Clinic

Cleaning Teeth With Dental FlossLots of small signs can show that you may have bad breath. Have you noticed people stepping away from you when you start to talk? Do people turn their cheek when you kiss them goodbye?
If you think you might have bad breath, there is a simple test that you can do. Just lick the inside of your wrist and sniff – if the smell is bad, you can be fairly sure that your breath is too.

Bad breath is a common problem that can affect anyone at any age and yet there is still a real ‘taboo’ around the subject, when there really needn’t be.

Our state of the art ‘Fresh Breath Clinic’ means that patients who are concerned about their ‘less than fresh’ breath can come along to get tested & treated in a friendly and positive environment.

Bad breath can be the result of numerous things, but often its caused by poor oral hygiene. If bacteria is allowed to flourish in your mouth, it can cause your breath to smell by breaking down pieces of food in the mouth, releasing whiffy odours. Eating strongly flavoured or very spicy foods, such as onions and garlic, can also cause your breath to smell, as can both alcohol or smoking

Persistent bad breath can also lead to gum disease over a period of time which is why its so important to let your dental hygiene or therapist take a look. Gum disease caught in the early stages can be very simple to treat, however, if left undiagnosed, it can eventually lead to periodontal disease and ultimately, tooth loss.

Woman Using Mouthwash During Oral Hygiene RoutineSometimes, bad breath can occur following an infection or illness, or as a result of taking certain types of medication or gastro-intestinal problems.

‘Dry mouth’ (xerostomia) is a condition that means your mouth produces less saliva. This causes bacteria to build up in your mouth and lead to bad breath. Dry mouth can be caused by some medicines, by salivary gland problems or by continually breathing through your mouth instead of your nose. Older people may produce less saliva, causing further problems.

Other medical conditions that cause bad breath include infections in the throat, nose or lungs; sinusitis; bronchitis; diabetes; or liver or kidney problems. If after visiting the ‘Fresh Breath Clinic’ we find your mouth to be healthy, we may refer you to your family GP or a specialist to find out the cause of your bad breath.

Whatever the reason, bad breath can be the cause of much embarrassment and frustration for the bearer. Mouthwashes and chewing gum can certainly help, but these will only ever mask the problem.

The real key to treating bad breath is to get to the cause of the problem and know how to treat it effectively and for the long term.
