Halitosis Treatment

Halitosis Treatment

Also known as bad breath, chronic halitosis is a condition that affects millions of people. Most often, it is caused by bacteria that is trapped inside the mouth, usually on the tongue, between teeth and underneath the gums. Many people suffering from chronic halitosis try to remedy the issue themselves by using gum, mints and mouthwash. Unfortunately, these treatments may only mask the problem instead of actually solving it.

At Admire Dental Southgate, we work to determine the exact cause of chronic halitosis so we can solve the troubling issue once and for all. Many cases can be solved with a professional teeth cleaning and a tongue scraping. Other times, scaling and root planing can cure halitosis, which is often the case when the gums are the source of bad breath.

The most effective method for preventing halitosis is to practice good oral hygiene habits. This means regular brushing and flossing to prevent the buildup of plaque and harmful bacteria. Our oral care experts typically review proper brushing and flossing practices for any patient experiencing chronic halitosis.

There are rare situations in which halitosis is an underlying condition of a more serious medical problem. If this is indeed the case, we will refer the patient to an appropriate specialist as needed.
