Professional & pain-free oral care for your bad breath & halitosis problem in Billericay, Essex.
Causes of Bad Breath
Bad breath in Essex is a common problem and there are a variety of causes for it.
Bad breath is commonly caused by odour-producing bacteria coating your teeth, gums and tongue.
Strong smelly foods, for example, garlic and onions can ‘stick’ to your breath causing bad smells.
Smoking can create bad odours with your breath and also with the skin, hands and clothes.
Medications and conditions affecting breathing/nasal congestion can result in an increase in mouth breathing. This results in an increase in bad-smelling bacteria in the mouth and saliva.
If you have broken fillings, gum disease or spaces where food can get trapped and stagnate this can also result in foul smells from the mouth.

Managing Bad Breath
The best thing to start with is a thorough dental examination at DentalKind, where your teeth, fillings and gums will be assessed. Our dental hygienist will assess your teeth and gums to help motivate and teach you how to take care of your teeth and gums in the best way. Completing any necessary treatment and regularly attending for routine check-ups is important to avoid any future dental disease.
Brushing twice daily with a fluoride-containing toothpaste will reduce the number of bacteria.
Using interdental cleaning aids, i.e. floss, tape or interdental brushes will improve gum health and clean out debris from between teeth.
Mouthwash use after lunch can help freshen breath during the day and top your mouth up with ‘goodies’.
The best way to avoid bad breath is to understand the various causes of it.
