News & stories relating to our dental & cosmetic treatments.
We are all familiar with bad breath in one way or another, whether it’s morning breath after a night of heavy boozing or garlic mouth from a spicy curry. For some people, bad breath, or halitosis, can be an embarrassing life-long condition. It can be devastating your love life (although it’s much easier to get away with on Zoom dates!) and might be much more noticeable while wearing a face mask while out shopping. Before you try to simply mask it with mouthwash, we have a look at some causes for bad breath, and what you can do to combat it.


1. Gum Disease Many adults in the UK suffer from gum disease to some degree. It’s noticeable by bleeding gums when you brush, bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth. It is caused by a build-up of plaque on the teeth and gums, and if not treated can lead to more serious conditions and tooth loss.


What to do? Visit your hygienist for a clean and tailored oral hygiene plan to suit your needs.


2. Not Enough Water Dehydration causes the bacteria in your mouth to multiply, leading to bad breath. Drinking water can also rinse away food particles in your mouth between brushing which otherwise can cause bad breath.


What to do? Always keep a reusable water bottle with you and aim to drink 2 litres per day.


3. Coffee The caffeine in coffee can cause your mouth to dry out, and as with dehydration, causes bad breath.


What to do? Opt for tea or drink water after coffee and use sugar-free mints/gum.


4. Alcohol Alcohol will also dehydrate you, and cause dry mouth, and the reduction in saliva will limit your mouth’s ability to self-clean, leading to bad breath. Alcohol can also cause acid reflux, causing stomach acid to creep up into the throat, which also can make your breath smell.


What to do? Try not to exceed the weekly amount of recommended alcohol units, which is 14 for both men and women.
