Bad Breath


We know that fears about bad breath, bleeding gums and gum disease can really affect your confidence.

Bad breath and bleeding gums are the first signs of gum disease. When plaque isn’t removed from your teeth it hardens and turns into tartar, which in turn causes gum disease.

It is estimated that half the adult population has some degree of gum disease and most people experience it at least once. So if you are self-conscious about getting “up close and personal” you are not alone.

It’s the job of the dentists to clean your gums, teeth and the tooth surfaces and reduce the mouth bacteria that you can’t see. They also offer advice and will show you the correct way to maintain your oral hygiene when you are at home, so that you can make sure your mouth stays as fresh and healthy as possible.
If it’s right for you, we will also be happy to discuss how teeth whitening and other treatments such as crowns and braces could help make your smile even brighter.

So, for dedicated advice and that special wash and brush up – give us a call and see what we can do.
