Bad breath (Halitosis) is commonly caused by a sulphur-producing bacteria in your tongue or throat. About 2.4% of all Australian adults have bad breath. It is important to note that bad breath is not contagious.
Do you, your partner or someone you know snore? Two out of every ten Australian adults will experience snoring in their lifetime. For some people, it may indicate a serious medical condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).
Old coloured fillings should be checked to see if there are any signs of leaking or fracture. If left un-repaired they can fracture your teeth and leak, causing decay to the remaining parts of the tooth.
If you have a damaged tooth, root canal treatment may help to save it. Inside your tooth is soft tissue containing nerves, and blood and lymph vessels, known as the tooth pulp that runs through the centre of a tooth.
