Bad breath, also known as halitosis, can be caused by the foods you eat as well at tobacco use, gum disease, or a dry mouth. In and of itself, bad breath is not an illness; however, its presence often indicates another dental problem in your mouth that needs to be treated.
We will determine the cause of your bad breath in order to choose the best treatment option. If your cause of bad breath is gum disease, then we will heal your gum tissue of this infection through antibiotics and deep cleanings. If the cause of bad breath is a dry mouth, then we may prescribe artificial saliva and other treatments that restore the saliva flow in your mouth. An antimicrobial mouthwash can also help you control bad breath while working to improve your oral health. Please call our dental team if you would like to learn more about our treatments for bad breath.
