In cases of one-time bad breath due to eating odoriferous foods such as onions or garlic, a breath mint or quick swish of mouthwash will mask the problem. However, the ultimate cause of bad breath is bacteria, and only regular, proper teeth cleaning will control it.
Bad breath that is persistent – not just the occasional morning-mouth - is often a symptom of oral disease, such as gingivitis. As bacteria multiply without being removed by good oral hygiene, they release foul products that mix with your breath, creating the unpleasant odour.
Combating bad breath and greeting the world with fresh breath is as simple as brushing and flossing twice a day, and having regular visits to your dental hygienist. The plaque and tartar that forms on your teeth cannot all be removed by home dental care; it requires the specialist cleaning techniques used by your hygienist.
If you suffer from persistent bad breath, don’t suffer in silence. Contact us for an oral health evaluation with a member of the team at Sacoor Dental, Acton.
