Dentist Amsterdam / Bad breath

Want to avoid bad breath? Here’s what you need to do.

Nobody’s breath smells like roses when they wake up. But if you still have bad breath after you have eaten and cleaned your teeth, then that can be really irritating. It’s called halitosis. It’s not fresh and can make you feel self-conscious. Fortunately you can avoid lasting bad breath. And, we’re happy to help you with that.

These are the causes of bad breath.

Bad breath doesn’t arise for no reason. Possible causes include gum disease or infection, harmful bacteria in the mouth or on the tongue, and a dry mouth. Additionally, bad breath can come about due to various medical issues. For instance, inflamed tonsils, throat infection, sinus infection, diabetes, respiratory infection, or stomach and intestinal problems. Still, in most instances the cause can be found in the mouth.

Avoid bad breath with good oral hygiene.

It is therefore really important that you always look after your teeth: by brushing your teeth and tongue twice a day (preferably with an electric toothbrush), drinking plenty of water, flossing well and using toothpicks correctly. To be sure that your oral health is in order it is also sensible to have a regular check-up with the dentist and dental hygienist.
