Halitosis is an oral health problem where the main symptom is bad-smelling breath. In most cases, finding the cause of the bad breath is the first step toward treating this preventable condition. At Smile Cliniq, we provide affordable and effective bad breath treatment in London. If you think you are suffering from halitosis, get in touch with us now.

What Is Bad Breath Treatment London

Bad breath is very common, and usually, the person with it is unaware that they have it. However, halitosis treatment London is very straightforward and effective.

In 90% of cases, bad breath is created in the mouth where bacteria produce gases that tend to smell like rotten eggs. These bacteria often hide in areas that you miss when you clean your teeth, as well as on the back of your tongue. It can also be caused by smoking which dries out your mouth making the odour a lot worse. This also builds up to harmful tar and nicotine inside your mouth.

Bad breath can be divided into two main types:

  1. Morning Breath – a condition that most people suffer from. Due to the lack of secretion of saliva during the night from our salivary gland, the bacteria aren’t washed away. By simply brushing and rinsing with a mouth rinse the bad breath can disappear. As our salivary glands rest while we are asleep, there is insufficient saliva to wash away bacteria and food debris.
  2. Halitosis – is a more serious condition and usually will need treatment. The problem can still be present even after brushing and rinsing and the bad breath can last throughout the day. Bacteria which give off odorous gases produce this type of bad breath.

At Smile Cliniq, we will investigate your mouth, diagnose the exact cause of your bad breath and show you exactly how to tackle bad breath treatment London it as part of your regular routine. If gum disease is the cause of halitosis, our expert dental hygienists will clean the pockets between your teeth and gums to remove the ingrained bacteria.

What Is The Process of Halitosis Treatment London?

Bad breath treatment in London is determined by the cause. Once we have established the cause, the treatment follows:
