Bad Breath

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, is commonly caused from a build-up of tiny food particles due to poor oral hygiene. The natural bacteria in your mouth breaks down these particles which then releases a strong smelling gas causing bad breath. To best prevent bad breath, we recommend brushing your teeth twice a day (don’t forget to brush your tongue too!), flossing at least once a day and visiting your Dentist every 6 months for a regular check-up and clean.

It is normal to have bad breath when you wake up and it should go away after brushing your teeth. If it doesn’t, this could be the sign of an underlying issue & is important to discuss with your Dentist and/or Doctor.

Other factors that can cause bad breath are diabetes, nose and throat sickness, dry mouth, tooth decay, eating strong-flavoured foods, smoking, etc.
