The unpleasant smell that occurs when you have halitosis is due to chemical reactions in your mouth. Our expert team will draw on your medical history as well as the health of your teeth to determine what is making the smell. It might be hydrogen sulphide, which is associated with the tongue, or it might be CH3SH which originates from the gum and around the teeth. Cleaning treatments and gum therapy will improve your halitosis.
You could simply ask your partner or friends for an honest answer, but to give you an idea of how it smells, try flossing your teeth and smelling the odour of the floss. We can also perform tests to determine what is causing the smell and which chemicals are contained within it.
Smoking is known for causing bad breath problems, but generally food debris left in the mouth, causing bacterial activity is to blame, especially if this has led to tooth decay and gum disease, which has not been treated.
Fresh breath treatment involves sorting out the dental problems that are causing the smell. If you have a tooth infection or dental abscesses, our team will provide treatment. A thorough removing of food deposits, scaling and polishing will also help.
