IT’S MORE THAN JUST EMBARRASSING
Also known as halitosis, bad breath is more than just embarrassing. Although not a serious medical condition, it can lead to a negative impact both personally and socially, resulting in poor self-esteem or sometimes even depression. Therefore, it is advisable to seek treatment as early as possible.

What Causes Bad Breath?

Most of the time, brushing alone is insufficient in getting rid of bad breath. Bad breath can also be caused by the following:

  • Consuming food like garlic, onions and tuna. Food can stay in the mouth in between the teeth, around the gums and especially the back of the tongue resulting in bacterial accumulation. These odour-causing bacteria produce compounds called volatile sulphur compounds (VSCs), causing bad breath.
  • People who use tobacco and alcohol
  • Dental issues (poor oral hygiene, tooth decay, gingivitis and periodontal disease)
  • Dentures (trapped food or plaque developing on dentures)
  • Dry mouth (due to lack of saliva flow)
  • Being on a diet regularly
  • Sinus/Throat infections
  • Other diseases such as diabetes, lung infections, kidney/liver failure, or gastrointestinal conditions

How do I Get Rid of Bad Breath?

Bad breath can be treated by a dentist. Our breath management programme consists of an initial consult to determine your cause of bad breath, followed by scaling and polishing treatments.

Scaling and polishing reduces odor-causing bacteria by removing plaque and tartar deposits that build up on your teeth over time, and cleans stains caused by coffee, tea or red wine. We utilise a teeth jet cleaner, Prophy-Jet, which uses high pressure solution to remove debris, tooth stains and dental plaque.

A post-care kit will be given to help further eliminate bacteria and its growth. It contains antibacterial mouthwash, acid neutralising toothpaste, probiotic supplements, and a toothbrush. . Finally, a follow-up review will be done after two months to evaluate results, followed by another scaling and polishing treatment.

The outlook for fresh breath is usually excellent as long as you stick to your dentist’s treatment plan and oral hygiene instructions.

Oral Hygiene Instructions for Fresher Breath

Our dentists will assess your teeth and gum conditions and advise you on oral hygiene methods specific to your condition. General Oral Hygiene Instructions will also be administered. Proper tooth brushing and flossing methods will be demonstrated and each patient will be given a home care kit to take home.

  • Brush and floss twice a day
  • Use a soft brush and angle 45 degrees towards the gum
  • Brush with short strokes in a to-and-fro or rolled manner over a small section (2-3 teeth)
  • Proper brushing should take 2 to 3 minutes to complete
