Banish bad breath with the right advice and professional care from specialists at Bow Lane Dental in London.
Bad breath or halitosis is actually very common, and usually the person with it is unaware they even have it. Nevertheless, the bad breath cure is effective and relatively fuss-free.
In 90% of cases, bad breath is generated in the mouth, where bacteria produce gases which tend to smell like rotten eggs. These bacteria often hide in the areas that you miss when you clean your teeth, as well as on the back of your tongue.
Smoking is another prime culprit – by drying your mouth it makes the odour worse and also builds-up harmful tar and nicotine inside your mouth.
Cannot recommend the amazing service at Bow Lane Dental more. Renate was so kind, patient and gentle - yet informative, helpful and super thorough. My teeth felt incredible after her hygienist clean, I couldn't stop staring at them! Will definitely be back!

You can get transient bad breath from your diet, such as regularly eating lots of garlic and onions, however most dietary causes can be masked by mouthwashes or mints. True halitosis is caused by bacteria which produces gases that smell similar to rotten eggs.
Since it is almost impossible to smell your own bad breath, simply ask a friend or family member. Alternatively, you can try two simple tests. Firstly, take a piece of unwaxed, unflavoured floss and move it between one of your back teeth – wait 30 seconds and then smell it to see if the odour is bad. Secondly, lick your wrist, wait a short while and then smell it to test the odour.
