Can dental hygiene in Harley Street help me with my bad breath?
Yes! Bad breath can be caused by many different factors, such as an underlying medical condition, poor oral hygiene, eating odorous foods and smoking. Here, at Harley Street Dental Clinic, we understand how bad breath can cause you embarrassment and loss of confidence. Our dental hygienists can advise you on the probable cause of your bad breath and then give you the best advice on how to resolve it, such as cutting down on sugary and odorous food and drink and by following a daily oral hygiene regime.
How can I keep my teeth healthy between check-ups?
Good hygiene starts at home, so we can advise you on the best daily dental routine for you when you visit one of our dental hygienists, and explain what we can do to support you in your regular check-ups with us here at Harley Street Dental Clinic. Our dental hygienists will give you advice on the best techniques for brushing your teeth and will help you practice this if required. We have many tips on how to floss your teeth, how to use interdental brushes and can also advise you on the best types of brushes to choose for your teeth.
It is very important to not only brush your teeth at least twice a day, but to also floss your teeth daily. Brushing alone will not remove all the bits of food that can get stuck between your teeth and this is a primary cause of bad breath and gum disease. By visiting one of our dental hygienists for regular check-ups, you will have the support you need to keep your mouth as healthy and clean as possible and your breath fresh!
