Simple, effective bad breath cure from Central London dentist

Typing ‘bad breath cures’ into an internet search engine instantly yields hundreds of thousands of sites promising the latest completely effective cure for bad breath. Some openly reveal their secret while others are more tantalising with their information. Countless herbal, dietary and medicinal solutions are cited as ‘guaranteed cures’ for bad breath but the real cure is actually a lot more simple.
Most cases of bad breath are caused by food particles getting trapped in the teeth and in the grooves of the tongue. These gradually decay and release nasty smelling odours that are carried out during exhalation. The secret to stopping bad breath is to make sure you do all you can to remove these food particles. This can be achieved relatively easily with better brushing, flossing and using other implements such as tongue scrapers.
Oral products such as mouthwash and sprays are generally not recommended by dentists as they do little more than mask the problem for a short period and then the embarrassing breath can return. This can be all the more frustrating because it is often very hard to tell when you have bad breath in the first place and some oral products may be giving you false confidence.
Central London dentists can help you to learn more effective ways of keeping your mouth and teeth clean to prevent bad breath. They can also recommend the most suitable toothbrush and toothpaste for your teeth. In some circumstances, the bad breath may not be being caused by oral problems and may require medical attention to cure. Your dentist will be able to advise you on the best course of action should this be the case.
