Have you ever had to meet with someone knowing that your breath is bad? Maybe you were confined to a bus seat reeking of morning breath; maybe you went into a meeting and tried not to open your mouth too wide when you spoke. At Wisdom Dental, we encounter a lot of patients who are concerned about their bad breath when they come to us for wisdom teeth removal. Many are even hesitant to open their mouth during their wisdom teeth removal consultation due to their embarrassment. Whatever the case, bad breath is treatable. Find out what you can do to treat bad smelling breath below.

Causes of bad breath include:

  • Bad dietary habits
  • Smoking
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Dry mouth
  • Dental diseases
  • Other diseases and health problems

Bad breath is said to affect around 30% of people around the world. In most cases, bad breath originates in the mouth and throat. The smell is often caused by the waste produced by bacteria in your mouth after they have digested proteins left in your mouth.

While the bacteria that cause bad breath cannot be entirely removed from the mouth, effective treatments are available to stop or significantly reduce the odour associated with bad breath.

Treatments for bad breath include:

  • Brushing your teeth after each meal
  • Rinsing your mouth with mouthwash regularly
  • Chewing sugar-free gum to stimulate flow of saliva
  • Good dietary habits
  • Quitting smoking

Bad breath could be linked to bacteria in the mouth which cause nasty tooth decay and wisdom teeth pain. If you think your bad breath could be caused by tooth decay requiring wisdom teeth removal, contact the professionals at Wisdom Dental on 1300 217 858 for a wisdom teeth removal cost quote today.
