Do you feel you have bad breath?
Bad breath is a very common problem and there are many different causes. There may be an underlying medical cause such as throat, nose or lung infections, sinusitis, bronchitis or diabetes. Other causes of bad breath include smoking, and strong foods and drink such as garlic, onions and coffee.
You may 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 some time.
Bad breath can be prevented by following a daily oral hygiene regime. Regular visits to the hygienist will also ensure your plaque levels are kept under control.
