Halitosis (bad breath) can be very debilitating and cause serious lack of self confidence and even problems in relationships. It is generally caused by the presence of certain bacteria on the gums, teeth and tongue which produce an array of unpleasant smelling sulphur compounds.
Our professional team can help by cleaning these areas, removing the bacteria, and showing you how to care for your mouth. This will remove the halitosis in most patients, restoring your confidence, and giving you fresh breath once again.
Causes of halitosis such as smoking or eating garlic are less easy to address from a dental standpoint, though good cleaning may provide some benefit. Other causes exist such as certain throat and stomach conditions, which we ourselves are unable to treat but can discuss with you and assist you to address.
