Bad Breath

Bad breath is an embarrassing but extremely common problem, and it’s one that is very easily resolved. Halitosis – or bad breath – can be caused by a number of different issues, but regardless of the cause, it can generally be improved with good oral hygiene and a change in diet.

Some of the most common causes include:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Smoking
  • Consuming too much sugar
  • Consuming too many potent foods such as onions and garlic
  • Acid reflux
  • Respiratory infections

Our dental hygienists encourage regular visits to check on the progress of the condition and prevent recurring issues with bad breath. We can help to diagnose and treat the cause of your halitosis and equip you with the information you need to prevent it from recurring.
