Understanding and Treating Halitosis in Leeds

Halitosis, commonly known as bad breath, is a condition that affects many people and can be a source of discomfort and self-consciousness. It’s not just about the food you eat; halitosis can also indicate underlying oral health issues. Our approach to treating halitosis in Leeds focuses on identifying and addressing its root causes.

After an initial consultation, we will tailor a personalised treatment plan. This can include professional cleaning, specific oral hygiene advice and other dental treatments if necessary. Our goal is not only to treat the symptoms of halitosis but to give you the tools and knowledge to maintain fresh breath long-term. With our compassionate care and expertise, you can feel confident about your breath.

What Causes Bad Breath?

Bad breath, or halitosis, can be caused by a variety of factors, some of which are easily manageable, while others might require more specific attention. Here are the common causes:

  • Poor Oral Hygiene: Not brushing or flossing regularly allows food particles to linger in your mouth, leading to bacterial growth on teeth, gums, and tongue.
  • Food and Drink: Certain foods, like garlic, onions, and spices, can contribute to bad breath. After digestion, these foods enter your bloodstream, are carried to your lungs, and affect your breath.
  • Tobacco Products: Smoking and chewing tobacco can leave chemicals that remain in the mouth, leading to a distinct odour.
  • Dry Mouth: Saliva helps cleanse your mouth. A condition called xerostomia, or dry mouth, can contribute to bad breath due to decreased saliva production.
  • Medical Conditions: Sometimes, bad breath can signal a more serious condition like gum disease, sinus infections, throat infections, or gastrointestinal issues.
  • Dental Problems: Cavities and deeper pockets from gum disease can harbour odour-causing bacteria.

Understanding the cause of bad breath is the first step towards effective treatment. Our team is here to help diagnose and treat the underlying reasons, ensuring you not only get fresh breath but also improved overall oral health.

Our halitosis treatment in Leeds goes beyond just freshening your breath. Here are some key benefits of bad breath treatment:

  • Improved Self-Esteem and Confidence: Effective treatment can restore your confidence in social, professional, and intimate interactions.

  • Personalised Oral Hygiene Routine: You’ll receive tailored advice on improving your daily oral care, helping maintain long-term dental health and preventing recurrence.
  • Lifestyle Improvement: Treatment often includes guidance on diet and lifestyle changes that not only improve breath but also contribute to overall well-being.
