Breath odour is affected by the type of food and drink consumed as well as the build-up of bacteria in the mouth. Without regular brushing
and flossing, bacteria and bits of food can get trapped in between the teeth, which release an unpleasant odour after some time.
In some cases, bad breath can also be caused by an underlying medical condition.
Our team here at St Vincent Smile can help you to prevent bad breath through advice and dental hygiene treatments. We provide a routine scale and polish as well as advanced therapy for patients with gum disease. Using professional instruments and cleaning pastes, these treatments will remove plaque and some staining from the teeth. We will also advise you on tooth brushing technique and how to use the correct sizes of interdental brushes to clean between the teeth. Regular visits to our hygienist will help to maintain low bacterial levels in your mouth and therefore reduces the risks for future gum disease and tooth decay.
