Common Causes of Bad Breath
Dental Services that Can Address Bad Breath
Scale and Clean
One of the causes of bad breath is plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth and gums. A scale and clean procedure removes plaque from teeth and gums and can help freshen your breath.
Gum Disease Treatment
Bad breath is one of the most common symptoms of gum disease. The appropriate gum disease treatment, whether it is scaling and root planing, antibiotic therapy, or oral surgery, can help improve oral health and breath smell.
Several dental conditions can cause bad breath, including gum disease, tooth decay, and infection. Once the offending tooth is extracted, your mouth will be much cleaner and will no longer harbour bacteria that can cause bad breath
Dental fillings can help by removing and sealing off areas where bacteria can hide and cause halitosis, or bad breath. When these bacteria are sealed off, they can no longer produce the sulphur compounds that cause bad breath.

Frequently Asked Questions About
Bad breath smell may vary depending on the source of the odour or the underlying cause. Ask a friend or relative to assess your mouth odour since it might be difficult for you to do it on your own. You can also test the odour by licking your wrist, letting it dry, and then smelling it. If this area of the wrist smells bad, it may indicate that you have bad breath.
You may also experience a bad taste in the mouth. You might not be able to get rid of the taste even if you brush and use mouthwash if it is the result of an underlying condition rather than trapped food particles.
There are several things you can do at home to prevent bad breath:
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day.
- Use a tongue scraper or toothbrush to clean your tongue.
- Don’t forget to floss between all your teeth each day.
- Make sure you use an antimicrobial mouthwash every day.
- Maintain a daily routine of cleaning anything that goes into your mouth, including dentures, retainers, and mouth guards.
- Switch to a new toothbrush every two to three months.
- Drink plenty of water to keep your mouth moist and wash away food particles.
- Avoid alcohol and tobacco to help keep your mouth moist and odour-free.
- Stay away from foods and drinks that can cause bad breath.
- Visit your dentist every six months for a dental examination and cleaning.
