Battling Bad Breath in London

There is never a good time to have bad breath, but in a ‘get-ahead, dog-eat-dog’ place like London, you need to be at your best at all times and bad breath is going to hold you back. But forgetting about the rat-race, bad breath is also an indication that you, your mouth and your body are starting to have problems and that things are going wrong.
The body is complex and it depends on everything working in unison and it needs fuel too, so it is imperative to keep up a good diet in order to maintain your immune system; everything needs to be in working order, including your mouth. Bad breath can be caused by many things, a poor immune system to start with. On most levels, it comes down to poor oral hygiene and can indicate gum disease and tooth decay- this needs to change in order to fight the problem- habits, as well as diet, need to be addressed in order to give your mouth a chance; you should liaison closely with your dentist and work out a plan between you.
Having a dry mouth can lead to bad breath; lack of saliva leaves the mouth defenceless in the face of bacteria and disease so it is imperative that the mouth is kept hydrated at all times by whatever methods are needed. If after all these issues have been addressed yet the problem remains, this implies more serious issues going on in your body. You will need to seek advice from your doctor and run a few tests in order to get to the root of the problem. Bad breath is a real problem with real issues.
