Why do I get Bad Breath?
Persistent bad breath is usually caused by the smelly gases released by plaque the bacteria that cover your gums and teeth in your mouth.
Food particles that get caught between the teeth and on the tongue will decay and can sometimes cause an unpleasant smell. So correct and regular brushing is very important to keep your breath smelling fresh. However, strong foods like garlic, coffee and onions can also add to the problem.
Bad Breath can also be caused by medical problems such as dry mouths which normally affect the flow of saliva in your mouth; also infections of the throat, nose and lungs can also cause bad breath.
The bacteria on our teeth and gums (plaque) also cause gum disease and dental decay. One of the warning signs of gum disease is that you always have bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth. Again, your dentist or hygienist will be able to see and treat the problem during your regular check-ups. The earlier the problems are found, the more effective the treatment will be.
How can I avoid Bad Breath?
If you do have bad breath, you will need to start a routine for keeping your mouth clean and fresh. Also regular check-ups and hygiene visits will allow them to watch out for any areas where plaque is caught between your teeth. We will be able to clean all those areas that are difficult to reach. They will also be able to show you the best way to clean your teeth and gums, and show you any areas you may be missing, including your tongue.

Fantastic service! I took my autistic son to them today they couldnt of been more caring , made us both feel very welcome and calm. It was the first time my son ever had an x-ray. The lady spoke calmly to him all through it and the dentist was also a lovely lady. My son came out of there full of smiles telling me they are really nice. He wants to keep going here which makes me as his mum happy.I totally trust this dentist they are the best dentist we have been to 🙂
I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Saldkhar for repair to a chipped tooth. Both Dr. Saldkhar and her dental assistant were extremely professional and thorough in their work. I am extremely happy with the final result. All staff at the practice are extremely knowledgeable and friendly in their respective roles. I am more than happy to provide referrals in future should anyone require a holistic dental practitioners.
