Bad breath Treatment London

Bad breath, sometimes called halitosis, is a condition that makes the mouth gives off a foul smell. This dental issue can be embarrassing and causes anxiety in some people. There are several products, including mouthwashes, mints and gums, which help fight bad breath.

Although these dental products can help out with the bad breath, they only provide a temporary fix, so you may have to address the underlying cause of the problem if you need a fresh breath.

Certain health conditions, habits and foods can cause bad breath. In many cases, a consistent proper dental hygiene routine can improve bad breath. However, if proper dental hygiene does not stop bad breath, consult your dentist or doctor to check if a more severe condition is the cause of your bad breath.
