Fresh Breath Clinic

Prevention and treatment of bad breath

Achieving a healthy mouth with fresh breath is an important goal for everyone. Bad breath is a common problem that can affect anyone of any age. Not only is it socially embarrassing but it may also be a sign of underlying disease.

What causes bad breath?

  • Gum disease and tooth decay.
  • Poor oral hygiene.
  • Bacteria on the teeth, gums and tongue that breakdown food and release sulphur containing gases that smell.
  • Medical conditions such as sinusitis, diabetes and stomach conditions.
  • Transient bad breath may also be caused by eating foods such as garlic.

How you can achieve Fresh Breath?

Treating bad breath requires good oral hygiene. This involves effective tooth brushing twice a day and flossing between teeth every day. This will remove the plaque and the bacteria that cause bad breath and gum disease.

Tongue scraping is also very important to keep your breath smelling fresh. Your tongue should be scraped until it is pink and the white/yellow film is totally removed.
