Bad Breath Treatment

Bad breath is a very common problem and there are many different causes. Persistent bad breath is usually caused by the smelly gases released by the bacteria that coat your teeth and gums.


However, strong foods like garlic and onions can add to the problem. Smoking is also one of the main causes of bad breath, along with certain illnesses such as nasal and stomach conditions.

What Causes Bad Breath?


What Causes Bad Breath?

Bits of food that get caught between the teeth and on the tongue will rot and can sometimes cause an unpleasant smell. So correct and regular brushing is very important to keep your breath smelling fresh.


The bacteria on our teeth and gums (plaque) also cause gum disease and dental decay. If you see your dentist regularly this will not solely help prevent bad breath but will also let the dentist look for and treat these problems.


Treatment of bad breath (halitosis treatment) helps in the increased confidence in social situations amongst family, co-workers, business clients and friends. Affected individuals will also feel an enhancement in the health of their gums & teeth.

Risks of Leaving Bad Breath Untreated

Untreated bad breath can be a sign of diseased or infected teeth & gums and should be promptly investigated.

If allowed to persist for a significant period of time, it may result in irreversible damage to the teeth and gums. If bad breath persists for 3 to 4 days, it should be investigated at the earliest opportunity to avoid problems.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

Treatment of bad breath usually involves consideration of multiple issues.
  • Depending on the cause of bad breath, treatment may be as simple as routine cleaning and instruction on how to maintain good oral hygiene. In advance cases, further investigations may be required as well as discussion with the dental professional.


  • One of the most effective treatments for bad breath is the elimination of bacteria in hard to reach areas around teeth and gums. One such way of doing this at home is through the use of an effective water flosser.
