bad breath

Did you know, bad breath or ‘Halitosis’ affects 1 in 4 people globally?

In most cases, bad breath is caused by oral bacteria, When you forget to brush properly, bacteria can form on the tongue.

Also when you become dehydrated and for people that get a dry mouth, due to the medications they are prescribed that reduces the amount of saliva they produce.

Following these simple steps will help you achieve a good oral hygiene, and get rid of bad breath!

1. Brushing twice per day (Morning and Night) for 2 minutes.

We would recommend using a good quality electric toothbrush. Always remember to finish off by brushing your tongue!

2. Make sure you floss/ use inter-dental brushes!

Doing this removes the bacteria from in between the teeth, where a
toothbrush can’t reach.

Keep on top of your oral hygiene with regular hygienist visits. At Aloe Vera a
30 Minute session with one of our hygienists costs £65.00. Or perhaps consider
joining one of our membership plans and spreading the cost throughout the year.


3. Use a mouthwash that fights off bad breath

But make sure that it contains fluoride. Please don’t use the normal ‘Corsydol’ mouth wash every day. It will stain your teeth.

4. Drink plenty of water! 

If you are taking a medication that makes your mouth dry, or you are particularly active—You may need to drink a little extra!

5. Chew some SUGAR FREE gum.

Especially after meal times, if you are unable to brush straight away.

6.  Drinking Alcohol and smoking can intensify bad breath

Consider cutting down, or quitting altogether.

7. Chronic bad breath can be sign of a more serious condition.

In this case consult a dental or medical professional.
