Bad breath is one of the most embarrassing social problems that people face, and eliminating it can prove to be more difficult than most people realise. If you suffer from bad breath, Anzac Avenue Dental has the solution.Most people think that bad breath (halitosis) is caused by poor brushing. In some cases this is true, but for many people, it is a sign of a problem involving bacteria that collects at the back of the tongue, between the teeth and under the gums. Normal brushing alone doesn't always remove the bacteria and the end result is intermittent or ongoing bad breath.
Shanti and Priya from our Hygiene program team at Anzac Avenue Dental say that the first step to eliminating bad breath is to have a regular examination and clean to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy. Once this has been achieved, you can use a variety of differnt products to eliminate the bacteria that causes the bad breath. We can recommend products that actually kill the bacteria instead of just masking the smell with mouth rinses or chewing gums.If you suffer from bad breath and you want a real solution, give us a call on 07 3491 8131 to make an appointment, or discuss the options best suited to you at your next preventive care visit.
