Halitosis Treatment

Halitosis Treatment

Halitosis, or “bad breath”, is unpleasant for many patients and can make you feel self-conscious. As one of the most frequent concerns of oral health, many patients seek our office for preventative measures and treatment of halitosis. Our doctors will conduct a thorough oral exam to determine the cause of your halitosis. In most cases, halitosis is caused by poor oral hygiene, but it may be caused by advanced gum disease (Periodontitis or Gingivitis), or other medical conditions.

Treatments of Halitosis

In order to treat halitosis for most patients, our doctors encourage brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste, cleaning the tongue, flossing daily to remove plaque and food debris, and regular hygiene visits for cleanings at our office. Many studies have shown that improvements in oral hygiene eliminate or prevent halitosis. If you believe you have halitosis, our doctors can help identify the source and provide resources to treat this troublesome situation.
