Say goodbye to bad breath

If you have problems with bad breath, you already know how challenging it can be for your personal and social life. Bad breath is a common problem affecting people of all ages and backgrounds. Thankfully it can often be easily treated with help from a dentist in Richmond who can get to the source of the problem.

Dentist in Richmond

For starters, the most important thing you can do to overcome bad breath is to visit us in Richmond at Sheen Dental. This is because bad breath may be associated with a common dental issue such as gum disease and our dentist in Richmond can help you overcome it. We will examine your teeth and gums carefully and do our best to reverse the condition and restore your healthy smile.

Causes of bad breath

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, may be the result of several different oral or dental issues including, but not limited to:

A build-up of bacteria

  • Trapped food debris

  • Gum disease

  • Tooth decay

  • Sinus problems

  • Dry mouth

  • Poor oral hygiene

  • Unclean dentures

  • Oral cancer

  • Infections

The first step to identifying the exact cause of your bad breath is to book an appointment with your dentist in Richmond. Your dentist will examine your teeth thoroughly and determine whether you have a dental problem that needs immediate action. If the cause of your bad breath is food related, you can remove these foods from your diet and see results after a few days. The same applies to smoking and use of tobacco. If poor dental health is the issue our dentist in Richmond can advise you on how to maintain a good oral hygiene routine at home.
