In one off cases of bad breath (after eating certain foods for example) a breath mint or quick swish of mouthwash can mask the problem. However, if you experience bad breath repeatedly the ultimate cause could be gum disease.
Persistent bad breath is often a symptom of oral disease, such as gingivitis. If left in the mouth, bacteria will multiply, releasing foul products that mix with your breath and resulting in an unpleasant odour.
Combating bad breath can be as simple as brushing and flossing twice a day, and making regular visits to your dental hygienist. Not all the plaque and tartar that forms on your teeth can be removed by home dental care alone and sometimes it requires specialist attention from your hygienist.
