If you are concerned about the freshness of your breath, please mention this to our friendly dentists and they will do their best to identify the cause of the problem and help to eliminate the bad breath.

Halitosis (or ‘bad breath’) can be caused by a number of issues. Rarely it can be a symptom of an underlying condition such as liver failure, but in most instances, halitosis can be reduced or eliminated by improving oral hygiene. With regular brushing (twice a day), flossing (once a day) and a gentle brushing of the tongue daily, most people find their halitosis can be minimised.

In some cases, the cause of the bad breath may not be from the mouth or from the oral tissues, and in these situations it can be more difficult to identify and treat the cause of the problem. However, our dentists will work with you to attempt to identify and correct your halitosis. It may be as simple as increasing your intake of water daily so make sure you mention your concerns to us at your appointment.
