Keep Your Smile Fresh by Treating Your Bad Breath

Halitosis, or chronic bad breath, can be caused by a variety of lifestyle factors. Foods you eat, tobacco usage, or certain medications can all contribute to the problem. Whatever the cause, your dentist will identify the root of the issue. Getting to know your oral and overall health histories, lifestyle habits, and personal oral care routines will help our team make the right treatment recommendations for you.

During your checkup, if you bring up dealing with bad breath or we spot this issue, your dentist may suggest:

  • Products You Can Use – There are special rinses specifically for those with bad breath problems. Your dentist can recommend ones you can use at home to help you avoid the chronic condition.  You can easily add them to your regular routines.
  • Improving Your Routine – The cause of your bad breath may be a result of your personal oral care habits. For example, you may miss brushing your tongue or you don’t brush for the appropriate length of time. Your dentist will discuss ways you can ensure a more thorough at-home cleaning.
  • Specific Treatments – Gum disease and cavities can contribute to poor breath if left untreated. Your dentist will look for these signs that could lead to bad breath. If treatment is needed, we’ll provide it and restore your smile to health.
