Halitosis Treatment

A large number of people are adversely affected by chronic bad breath, a condition also known as halitosis. The problem is usually caused by bacteria that is trapped in the mouth, often between teeth, on the tongue and below the gum line. When dealing with halitosis, many people attempt to treat the issue on their own using gum, mints or mouth rinses. Unfortunately, these treatments will only mask the problem, and they won’t actually cure an individual’s bad breath. Our experts know how troubling chronic halitosis can be, and we will work to help you eliminate the problem once and for all.

One of the most effective methods for treating halitosis is to provide a professional teeth cleaning. This treatment is provided for every patient during a complete dental checkup. During this time, we may also conduct a tongue scraping, which can be very helpful when the tongue is the primary source of the odor-causing bacteria.

Many cases of halitosis are the result of periodontitis, also known as gum disease. We offer a large number of treatments for this troubling condition. Our team strongly advises any patient who is suffering from periodontitis to seek out treatment as quickly as possible, due to the fact that it can lead to even more serious oral health problems if left untreated.

The best way to prevent halitosis from occurring is to maintain strong oral hygiene practices at all times. This includes brushing and flossing twice every day and receiving complete dental checkups twice a year. Patients should also make sure they are using the correct methods for brushing and flossing. Our experts are happy to provide a basic review of proper oral care techniques for any patient who is experiencing halitosis.

Although it is uncommon, there are cases in which halitosis is an underlying symptom of something more serious. If we determine that this indeed the case, we will direct the patient to a more appropriate specialist who can help them deal with the problem.
