Do you worry about having bad breath? Bad breath, also known as halitosis, can be an embarrassing, but surprisingly common problem caused by eating certain foods, drinking alcohol or tobacco use. It can also be a problem for anyone suffering with dry mouth or certain chronic medical conditions.
The most common cause of halitosis is poor oral hygiene. A build-up of bacteria in the mouth, especially where a toothbrush can’t easily reach, causes inflammation and a bad odour that can also lead to cavities and gum disease if not remedied.
Too many sticky sweets and drinks, or eating onions, garlic and some spicy foods can also lead to bad breath. Drinking too much coffee, excessive alcohol consumption and of course smoking all add to the problem. So what are the easiest and best ways to avoid bad breath?
Bad breath can be frustrating and embarrassing, enough to even find yourself avoiding some social situations. Fortunately, though, it can be treated by the team at Ringley Park who can identify and address the underlying causes and keep bad breath at bay by following the tips outlined above.
