How to Fix Bad Breath

IN THE last article we found that most of the bacteria causing bad breath reside in the mouth, particularly in the posterior part of the tongue, caught between teeth, under the gums and within decaying teeth.

However, it is the tongue that we often forget in our oral hygiene. If we clean our teeth and keep our gums healthy, why don't we also make a habit of cleaning our tongue? The answer is we should.

Since most bad breath causing bacteria are housed and have a plentiful "food" supply in the posterior part of the tongue, then reducing the bacterial load and food supply by cleaning the tongue with a tooth brush or tongue scraper (cleaner) will ultimately reduce the presence of bad breath.

Stinky Breath Solutions

BAD BREATH – halitosis – is the third most frequent reason people seek dental treatment, behind tooth decay and gum disease.

Sleep Apnoea in Children

IN THE first two parts of this healthy living series, Dr. Alison Robinson from Geelong Smile Studio has been discussing Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) in adults.

In part three, she also reports that sleep disordered breathing may also occur in children.

Diagnosing Sleep Issues in Children

The diagnosis of sleep issues in children is more difficult than in adults.

Night time symptoms suggestive of signs of possible airway and sleep disorders in children include a louder breathing noise rather than a distinct snoring as in adults, poor/restless sleep patterns, teeth grinding, mouth breathing, increased sweating and bed wetting.

Obesity is only occasionally a significant factor.
