We use CustomerSure to check that our customers are happy - every time.If you think you might have bad breath, there is a simple test that you can do. Just lick the inside of your wrist and sniff — if the smell is bad, you can be fairly sure that your breath is too.

Bad breath is a common problem that can affect anyone at any age and yet there is still a taboo around the subject, when there really needn’t be. Our state of the art Fresh Breath Clinic means that patients who are concerned about their breath can come to get tested and treated in a friendly and positive environment.

Bad breath is often caused by poor oral hygiene, when bacteria is allowed to flourish in your mouth. Eating strongly flavoured or very spicy foods such as onions and garlic can also cause your breath to smell, as can alcohol or smoking.

Persistent bad breath can also be linked to gum disease, so it’s important to let your hygienist or therapist take a look. Gum disease caught in the early stages can be very simple to treat but if it’s left undiagnosed, it can eventually lead to tooth loss.

Sometimes, bad breath can occur following an infection or illness, or as a result of taking certain types of medication or gastro-intestinal problems.

Dry mouth (xerostomia) is a condition that means your mouth produces less saliva, which allows bacteria to build up, leading to bad breath. Dry mouth can be caused by some medicines, by salivary gland problems or by continually breathing through your mouth instead of your nose. Older people may produce less saliva, causing further problems.

Other medical conditions that cause bad breath include infections in the throat, nose or lungs; sinusitis; bronchitis; diabetes; or liver or kidney problems. If after visiting the Fresh Breath Clinic we find your mouth to be healthy, we may refer you to your family GP or a specialist to further explore the cause of your bad breath.

Whatever the reason, bad breath can be the cause of embarrassment and frustration. Mouthwash and chewing gum may help, but can only ever mask the problem. The real key to treating bad breath is to get to the cause of the problem and treat it effectively.
