Treatments for Bad Breath
Bad breath, commonly known as halitosis, can be attributed to various factors, including gum disease, decay, infection, or other related issues. At our dental clinic in Central London, we are committed to identifying the source of bad breath and addressing the underlying problems to provide effective solutions for our patients. By thoroughly investigating the cause, we can help you eliminate this troublesome condition, allowing you to regain confidence in your oral hygiene.
Gum disease is a prevalent cause of bad breath. When plaque builds up along the gum line, it can lead to inflammation and infection, resulting in an unpleasant odor. Our experienced dental professionals in Central London will meticulously examine your oral health, evaluating the condition of your gums and teeth to determine if gum disease is the root cause of your halitosis. By implementing personalized treatment plans, which may include deep cleaning, periodontal therapy, or other appropriate measures, we aim to restore your oral health and alleviate the associated bad breath.
Furthermore, decayed teeth can contribute to foul breath. Cavities or tooth decay create an environment conducive to bacterial growth, emitting an unpleasant smell. At our Central London clinic, we utilize modern diagnostic tools and techniques to identify areas of decay accurately. Following the diagnosis, our skilled dentists will recommend suitable treatments such as fillings or dental crowns to address the decay, thereby eliminating the source of bad breath.
