Bad breath has a direct connection to your self-confidence and our specialists at The Hendon Smile are ready to boost your confidence by giving your fresh breath back.

Our Dentists in The Hendon Smile, will not only help you on the road to a fresh breath, but our professional advice is invaluable in uncovering the cause.

What causes bad breath?

The causes of bad breath (or halitosis) can vary from a simple lifestyle and the food in your diet to more serious underlying health problems, such as gum disease and gum inflammation (gingivitis). It can even be telling of issues in different parts of your body. Bad breath can be a sign of throat or lung infections; of liver or kidney disease.  

Halitosis can be a result of:

  • Strong foods, such as garlic and onions
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Regular consumption of alcohol and cigarettes
  • Food caught between teeth
  • Dry mouth
  • Bacteria on the tongue
  • Gingivitis and periodontal disease (the two most common types of gum disease)
  • Health issues in another part of your body e.g. throat, liver, kidneys, lungs

How do I get rid of bad breath?

When was the last time you visited the dentist? It could be simply a build up bacteria from lifestyle habits, such as drinking coffee and smoking, eating strong-tasting foods or not brushing thoroughly enough. However, it could be an indication of a dental health concern. Bad breath is a symptom and, with many possible underlying reasons, it is best to get a professional opinion. The Hendon Smile is the best placed to help decipher the cause.

If you are concerned about bad breath, call us and book an appointment. We will be able to perform a routine examination to discover the cause and offer treatment and advice. Treatment will range from a hygienist appointment for a thorough clean and polish to antibiotics for throat bacteria or a suitable plan to treat gum disease. By treating the cause of your bad breath, your local London dentist or hygienist can help you achieve fresh breath and restore your confidence. Fresher breath means a healthier mouth.     

Visiting your local London dentist and hygienist regularly for a professional checkup and scale and polish should be part of your dental care plan. It will go a long way in keeping your breath fresh.
