If you’re concerned about what’s causing your bad breath, consider scheduling an appointment with us here at Meneage Dental, Cornwall. Our dental professionals and hygienists will take a look at your full medical and dental history and give you a full oral examination
There are many causes of bad breath; certain foods, alcohol or cigarettes, poor oral hygiene, gum disease, diabetes, dry mouth, sinus or throat infections, kidney/liver failure, gastrointestinal issues and severe dieting. But remember there are ways of helping this unfortunate condition.
Thorough brushing and flossing twice a day is a good starting point. Use a toothpaste with fluoride and antibacterial properties. You can also brush your tongue and there are many toothbrushes with a tongue cleaner on the reverse… also use a mouthwash after you brush, floss and clean your tongue. Of course, you are not limited to a twice daily routine, but remember not to brush too hard.
Why not ask your dentist or hygienist at Meneage Dental the next time you are in to see us, we will be happy to go through any concerns you may have.
