Treatment for Bad Breath
In order to map out an effective treatment plan for your bad breath, we must first determine the cause. To ensure we capture an accurate diagnosis of your foul breath odor, we will discuss your daily habits, take digital x-rays and evaluate your entire oral cavity. If signs of infection, gum disease or decay are present, we will promptly provide a solution. If your bad breath seems to be a symptom of an overall health issue or medical condition, we are happy to collaborate with your physician to find an effective remedy.
In many cases, bad breath stems from poor oral hygiene habits and/or dry mouth. Therefore, it may be as simple as better brushing and flossing at home or using a special mouthwash to increase your saliva production. When saliva is low, bacteria can more easily accumulate in the mouth and on the tongue’s surface, often leading to embarrassing bad breath.
