Treatment for bad breath - Halitosis treatment Derby

It is estimated that millions of people suffer from Chronic Bad Breath (Halitosis).
Halitosis is an embarrassing problem that can affect you both personally and socially.

It is a common ailment which can be a symptom of an underlying medical condition. However, dental problems ranging from tartar build up and gum disorders to damaged fillings can account for a large majority of bad breath disorders.

Bad Breath can also be caused by poor dental hygiene resulting in the accumulation of bacteria which release gases with an unpleasant odour.

We recognise the shame and embarrassment that bad breath can cause and can help design a treatment regime suited to each individual’s personal needs to help overcome this problem.

Treatment is based on an integrated approach involving a detailed examination and correction of any underlying dental disease.

Following treatment, an effective home care regime is individually designed for each patient.

The following recommendations may also help to minimise halitosis:

  • Good brushing and flossing technique for teeth and gums is essential
  • Use a tongue scraper or your toothbrush to clean your tongue
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Attend regular hygiene appointments to maintain optimum oral health
