Bad breath or “halitosis” is associated with an unpleasant odour that comes from the mouth. It can be socially debilitating but depending on the cause can also be more sinister in nature. It is also a topic that isn’t discussed openly due to embarrassment or fear of the consequences of the causal factors.
For this reason we have a special clinic that is devoted specifically to helping people address this condition in a comfortable manner.
There are many causes of bad breath some include:
- Dry mouth
- Stomach or gastero-intestinal problems
- Teeth infection
- Gum infections
- Soft tissue infection
- Oral food stagnation areas
- Poor dental hygiene
As part of our philosophy and approach to good health we have dedicated an area of our treatments to management of bad breadth conditions. We aim to highlight the actual causes in our process of Periodontal Treatment Planning and when we provide Personalised Periodontal Post Treatment Programs. This then helps us to treat the situation accordingly and with much success.
If you like we can organize a complimentary consultation to understand your concerns and thereafter provide professional advice of the best way forward for you.
