Bad breath typically originates from the gums and tongue, with the odour being caused by bacteria in the mouth, food particles and the build-up of other debris in the mouth.

What is Bad Breath?

Halitosis is the medical term for bad breath. It can be caused by a variety of factors and medical conditions and it is thought to affect at least 50% of adults during their lifetime. Bad breath typically originates from the gums and tongue, with the odour being caused by bacteria in the mouth, food particles and the build-up of other debris in the mouth.

The accumulation of these factors is attributed to poor oral hygiene. Halitosis can be more prominent after eating certain foods, drinking certain beverages and is also caused by lifestyle factors, in particular smoking.

Halitosis can also occur as a result of underlying health conditions such as dry mouth, acid reflux and gum disease. Dry mouth is one of the most common causes of bad breath and occurs when you don’t produce enough saliva. Saliva plays an important role in keeping your mouth clean and clearing away food particles.

How we can help you

Bad breath is unpleasant for both you and those around you, affecting your self-confidence.

We understand that it can be difficult to seek help with halitosis but at My Private Pharmacist we offer effective remedies and professional advice that will take your bad breath away.

One of the best ways to manage halitosis is to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth and flossing twice a day. You should also get regular dental check-ups in order to rule out any underlying dental conditions like tooth decay or gum disease.

There are some effective treatment options for dry mouth available that help to replace saliva and freshen the breath.
