What is Halitosis?
The medical term used to define bad breath is Halitosis. The common conception is that bad breath is your fault, but it can also be caused by a dental problem that you might not be aware of. We will help to find the cause of your bad breath by examining your oral history and health.
The Cause of Bad Breath
Certain foods, dry mouth, hunger, or poor dental hygiene can be the cause of temporary bad breath. For chronic or persistent bad breath, the cause may be dental hygiene or other serious dental problems. Bacteria between the teeth and gums or on the tongue is a common cause of bad breath. Reduce your risk of bad breath by properly brushing your teeth at least twice a day in addition to cleaning your tongue with a scraper.
Bad Breath Treatment
Determining the cause is the first step in treatment of bad breath. If it is being caused by tooth decay or gum disease, we will recommend the proper course of treatment. We will want to go over your brushing habits and we can make recommendations on products used to control bacteria like a mouthwash.
