Bad Breath Clinic
If you have good oral hygiene and still suffer from bad breath, you should let the dentist have a look. Bad breath (or halitosis) can not only cause social embarrassment, but it may also be a sign of a condition that needs treating.
Plaque, a coated tongue or inflamed gums can all lead to bad breath. So the first step is to ensure the best possible hygiene inside the mouth. We will be pleased to offer you detailed advice about this. If the cause of the problem is periodontitis, rapid treatment is needed since if left untreated, it can result in complete tooth loss (and even secondary diseases affecting other parts of the body). Caries can also impair the quality of your breath and should be treated as soon as possible, and not just for this reason. Other causes of bad breath, such as diabetes or kidney problems, also need to be ruled out.
