Bad Breath

Bad breath is breath that has an unpleasant odour. It's also known as halitosis. Depending on its cause the odour can occur from time or it can be long lasting. The causes of bad breath can range from an infection in the mouth or respiratory tract, specific illnesses or poor dental hygiene. At Pukekohe Dental we examine your teeth, gums, mouth and salivary glands and if the cause of the bad breath is due to dental related issues you will be advised on improving your brushing and flossing technique, a mouth wash may be suggested and of course regular dental check ups for an exam and tooth cleaning will be recommended.
