Fresh Breath

Fresh Breath

Bad breath is a very common problem and there are a variety of causes. Bacteria that coat your teeth and gums release pungent gases causing persistent bad breath. Strong foods like garlic and onions can add to the problem and smoking is also one of the main causes of bad breath, along with certain illnesses such as nasal and stomach conditions.

Regular brushing is of great significance to keep your breath smelling fresh as bits of food that get caught between he teeth and on the tongue will rot and can sometimes cause an unpleasant smell.

By visiting your dentist regularly you will not only prevent bad breath but will also let the dentist look and treat for gum disease and dental decay which too can be caused by bacteria on your teeth and gums.
