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.
Under our care, we will investigate your mouth, diagnose the exact cause of your bad breath and show you exactly how to tackle it as part of your regular routine. If gum disease is the cause of halitosis, our expert dental hygienists will clean the pockets between your teeth and gums to remove the ingrained bacteria.
The first thing we advise for bad breath treatment is that you brush and floss thoroughly to remove the bacteria that are producing the halitosis gases. You should also clean your tongue using your toothbrush or a special scraper.
We further suggest you use a mouthwash that contains chlorine dioxide, since this will break down the gases that cause bad breath. It is best to use these mouthwashes just before you go to sleep and make sure you gargle for at least 30 seconds to ensure you rinse all the parts of your mouth thoroughly. Do not waste your money on the normal, mediocre mouthwashes, because some of these contain alcohol which will merely dry the mouth, making the odour worse.
