50% of adults suffer from Halitosis, otherwise known as bad breath. People who suffer from this problem may see it affect their work, their relationships and other areas of life. The sad truth is that most sufferers don’t even know they have the disease. Their spouse, business associates, clients, acquaintances, even friends are often hesitant to tell them about the smell of their breath.
Bad breath has many potential causes. Dr Serfontein and his team are experts in determining the source of Halitosis and how to treat it. Reasons for bad breath often vary from person to person, but Dr Serfontein can identify the cause of each patient’s problem and customize treatment based on that diagnosis.
There are many potential causes of bad breath - and sometimes Halitosis is caused by a combination of circumstances. These are some of the most common reasons for bad breath:
After you eat, the food particles in your mouth collect and forms bacteria which causes bad breath. If you don’t brush and floss your teeth daily, this food can rot, leaving an unpleasant odour, as well as other oral problems.
Dr Serfontein and his staff can determine which of these sources - or other potential sources - is causing bad breath. He will then prepare and customize a treatment plan to target the problem and eliminate the odour.
Maintaining good oral health is essential to reducing bad breath. Therefore, we recommend that you visit a dentist once every six months and brush your teeth twice a day. If you are concerned about bad breath, talk to a dentist who can help you identify the cause of bad breath and develop an effective treatment plan.Get in touch today
