5. Bad Breath

Our mouth is connected to our nasal passages, gut and lungs and therefore any odours in these areas can result in bad breath. This can range from our diet to medical conditions such as sinusitis and gastric reflux.

 

At Big Smiles, we can help to diagnose the cause of the bad breath. Yet a leading cause of bad breath is bacteria in our mouths. Bacteria builds up in gum disease and tooth decay so it is important to limit the amount of bad breath causing bacteria.

 

This is done via;

  • Good oral hygiene including flossing, tooth brushing and tongue brushing
  • Professional scale and cleans to remove bacteria attached to tartar
