Stinky breath is anti-social, prevent it easily. By a London SE1 dentist

29 / 07 / 2010

Bad breath will lose you friends, and even business if your job involves face to face selling, says a London SE1 dentist. Yet the solution to bad breath is often a simple change to your oral hygiene program, although you`ll need to identify the cause first to make sure. The most common cause of bad breath is a poor method and a lax attitude to keeping your teeth clean and free from food deposits, these deposits fed the bacteria which causes the bad odour in the first place. In the night while we sleep, acid production builds up due to a dry mouth and bacterial activity. That acid breaks down the enamel on our teeth and wears away our gums, this allows disease to infect the gums and they recede. The bacteria that lives in our mouth is constantly reproducing and causing us all sorts of problems, bad breath is a sure fired sign of this. To keep that acid down we have to more careful what we eat, cutting out excessive sugar and fat will help a lot as these feed the bacteria. Brushing with the correct brush and in the correct manner will also help to keep food deposits in the mouth down, as will flossing. Flossing is the most underrated part of oral hygiene and is more important than brushing. Flossing every time we eat will help to keep bad breath at bay, so keep a flossing stick with you and just spend a few minutes using it every time you eat.
