Uh oh, who has bad breath?

By Lauren – Gold Coast Mum 

Have you met Hally Tosis?

The lovable pooch featured in this popular children’s book Dog Breath – The Horrible Trouble with Hally Tosis also happens to scare people away due to his foul-smelling breath.
“When the children took Hally Tosis for a walk, everyone else walked on the other side of the street. Even the skunks avoided Hally Tosis.”

Poor pooch. 

Can you imagine having that impact on people? Or maybe you do and you don’t realise/ people don’t want to hurt your feelings/ or you’re well aware but don’t know what to do about it?

Halitosis, colloquially called bad breath, or fetor oris, is a symptom in which a noticeably unpleasant odour is present on the exhaled breath.

What’s worse than smelling bad breath?
Being the person with bad breath.

According to Brisbane dentist, Robert Duhig, if you’re concerned about bad breath for yourself or your partner, there’s no need to put up with it as there’s a quick, simple way to diagnose and then target treat the problem.

“It’s not just about feeling more confident, it’s about diagnosing chemical issues in your mouth and throat.  Breath issues can be a sign of bigger dental problems, don’t go on worrying, do something about it.”

* Bad breath is an oral imbalance
* Persistent bad breath is bacteria
* Breath testing is a fast way to tell if the problem is bacteria
* Solution a simple lozenge treatment

Mr Duhig says the first, and often the hardest, step for many people in getting treatment for bad breath is actually just booking the appointment.

Robert Duhig Dental in Sandgate uses a state of the art, scientifically developed bad breath analyser to diagnose and develop treatments for bad breath.
“The Breath Test is very simple and easy to do. We put a syringe (there is no needle attached) into your mouth while you breathe normally through your nose. It stays in your mouth for a minute then we suck up the Breath sample which is then injected into the Oral Chroma Breath Testing Machine. It takes about 5 minutes to analyse the sample after which we can show you the results and even print them out for you to take home,” he said.

"The Oral Chroma (also known as a Halicheck) is 100 times more sensitive than the human nose.  It breaks down your breath sample isolating three gasses that contribute to bad breath.  Treatment for bad breath used to be difficult as it can originate form the tongue, gums and teeth or throat.  The Oral Chroma breath analyser identifies the source for highly targeted and more effective treatment."
