Bad Breath (Halitosis) Treatment

Bad breath, or halitosis, can be embarrassing and impact your confidence. At Doncaster Dental, we understand the social and personal challenges associated with bad breath. Our friendly dentists are here to help you address this issue effectively.


What Causes Bad Breath?

  • Bacterial Activity: Bacteria in your mouth thrive on food particles left behind after meals. As they break down these residues, they release volatile sulphur compounds (VSCs), resulting in an unpleasant taste and smell.
  • Common Culprits:
    • Poor oral hygiene
    • Gum disease
    • Dry mouth
    • Certain foods (like garlic and onions)
    • Smoking and tobacco use


How Can We Stop Bad Breath?

  1. Comprehensive Oral Hygiene: Regular brushing and flossing are essential. Pay attention to your tongue, as bacteria can accumulate there too.
  2. Professional Cleanings: Our skilled hygienists remove plaque and tartar buildup during professional cleanings.
  3. Addressing Underlying Issues: If gum disease or other dental conditions contribute to bad breath, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan.
  4. Hydration: Staying hydrated helps prevent dry mouth, which can worsen bad breath.
  5. Avoiding Odorous Foods: Limit consumption of foods known to cause bad breath.


The Importance of Treating Bad Breath

  • Social Impact: Bad breath can affect your interactions with others. Our goal is to restore your confidence and improve your social well-being.
  • Oral Health: Addressing bad breath often involves treating underlying dental issues, and promoting overall oral health.
