Help me keep my mouth healthy » Fresh Breath
Bad breath is a very common problem and there are many different causes, explain the Leicester dentists at Smile Essential Dental Practice. Some people find that they have bad breath all the time and there may be an underlying medical cause for that, such as throat, nose or lung infections and sinusitis, bronchitis or diabetes.
Persistent bad breath is usually caused by the smelly gases released by the bacteria that coat your teeth and gums. However, strong foods like garlic and onions can add to the problem.
You can also suffer from bad breath if you have poor dental hygiene. Without regular brushing and flossing, bacteria and bits of food can get trapped in between your teeth, which release an unpleasant odour after time. Another cause is smoking. Bad breath can be made worse by strong foods like garlic, onions and coffee.
Fresh breath can be achieved by following a daily oral hygiene regime and cutting down on sugary foods and drinks. Regular trips for hygiene therapy at Smile Essential will also help ensure your plaque levels are kept under control and your teeth and gums remain healthy.
Correct and regular brushing is very important to keep your breath smelling fresh as bits of food can get caught between the teeth, and, if not cleaned away properly, can rot and cause an unpleasant smell.
