Halitosis Treatment

Halitosis, also known as bad breath, is a troubling condition that is often caused by bacteria trapped inside the mouth. Common locations for oral bacteria include the tongue, between teeth and underneath the gums. Many people suffering from halitosis treat the issue themselves using gum, mints or mouth rinses; however, these remedies usually just mask the problem rather than actually solving it.

The oral health specialists at Dental American Group will not only work to determine the exact cause of chronic halitosis, but also treat the condition as thoroughly as possible. In many cases, a deep cleanse of the mouth through a professional teeth cleaning is all that is needed to treat halitosis. Tongue scraping can also be highly-effective, especially when the tongue is the source of bacteria.

Other times, halitosis is associated with periodontitis, more commonly known as gum disease. When dealing with gum disease, scaling and root planing treatments are often necessary. Our oral health specialists recommend treating gum disease in its earliest stages in order to prevent more serious problems later.

The most effective method for preventing halitosis is maintaining strong oral hygiene practices. Eliminating the buildup of plaque and keeping the mouth free of harmful bacteria is the best way to ensure that bad breath is not present. Our dental care experts typically review proper brushing and flossing techniques for any patient suffering from halitosis.

In rare cases, halitosis may be an underlying condition of a more serious medical problem. In these cases, our dentist will direct the patient to their physician.
