Your bad breath may be coming from an underlying issue that can’t be fixed with chewing gum or breath mints. While these things may temporarily mask the condition, they won’t eliminate the source. Our professional team treatment will work to detect and eliminate the source of bad breath.
While things like “morning breath” or the breath you have after eating a tuna sandwich can easily be fixed by brushing your teeth or rinsing with mouthwash, sometimes chronic bad breath, also known as halitosis, can mean a more serious, underlying issue. If you have chronic bad breath, we can help detect the source. Once we understand where the issue is coming from, we can help determine what the best method is to eliminate it.
Some most common causes of halitosis include:
One of the most effective ways to treat halitosis is a professional teeth cleaning. This process will remove bacteria and provide a long-lasting sense of oral freshness. Tongue scraping can also be helpful when bacteria is present on the patient’s tongue. Halitosis can also be a result of gum disease. Deluxe Dental offers periodontal treatments that are highly effective in eliminating odor caused by periodontitis. We encourage patients suffering from gum disease to seek treatment as quickly as possible since this condition will significantly worsen if it is allowed to spread.
To begin the process of finding the source of your halitosis, please give our dental office a call. You can reach us at (208) 219-7604 to schedule an appointment today.
