Bad breath - DB Dental
Anxious patients can ease their fears with the Wand

Halitosis, the medical name for bad breath, is caused by sulphur producing bacteria in the mouth. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause such as dry mouth, smoking , gum disease, nasal or sinus infections.

Good oral hygiene such as brushing the teeth and tongue at least twice a day, flossing and using an antibacterial mouthwash daily are important ways to combat halitosis.

Symptoms can include:

  • White coating on the tongue
  • Dry mouth
  • PIaque build up
  • Constant sour, bitter metallic taste
  • Excessive mucous
  • Post-nasal drip
  • Morning bad breath and a burning tongue
  • Thick saliva and a need to constantly clear your throat

DB Dental has its own specialist Periodontist who is specifically trained in the diagnosis of periodontal diseases, which halitosis falls under.
