Get Rid of Bad Breath in Smylife’s Fresh Breath Clinic
Bad breath is a very common problem, with the main cause being poor dental hygiene. Bacteria coating the teeth and tongue occur naturally in the mouth. They attack food particles trapped between the teeth. As the bacteria breakdown food, smelly gasses are released. In people with healthy teeth, the smell is usually confined to the back of the tongue.
Smoking is also one of the main causes of bad breath, along with certain illnesses such as nasal and stomach conditions. Strongly flavoured foods such as garlic, onion and spices produce a smell long before bacterial action sets in. Strong smelling drinks, including alcohol and coffee, can also cause bad breath. So correct and regular brushing is very important to keep your breath smelling fresh.
The bacteria on our teeth and gums (plaque) also cause gum disease and dental decay. If you see your dentist regularly this will not only help prevent bad breath but will also let the dentist look for and treat these problems.
