Remove The Worry. Be Confident With Bad Breath Treatment!

Having bad breath is embarrassing and can impact a lot of areas of your life. Not only will your confidence plummet, but your personal and professional opportunities can also be very limited.

Halitosis, the scientific name for bad breath, is frustrating as well. It’s not as simple as “have a breath mint.” As a medical condition, halitosis can be long-lasting and hard to get rid of. If you’ve exhausted everything you can think of, it’s time to visit a professional at Brighter Smile.

Our dentists will look at your mouth and teeth and try to determine the cause of the problem. Sometimes we can help you with your oral hygiene habits, such as brushing and flossing. A lot of people aren’t sure how to do these correctly, which can lead to bad breath.

Other causes include poorly fitting dentures or bridges, an infection in your mouth, persistent dry mouth, or other issues. Even specific foods can cause bad breath long after you’ve eaten them — even if you brush your teeth! Using tobacco products can also cause serious problems.

Getting regular cleaning from your dentist is an important first step. We’ll remove plaque and other buildup from your teeth and recommend at-home treatments that can help keep things clean.

Dry mouth is a common cause of halitosis. Sometimes you have dry mouth due to a specific medication that can be changed. Other times it’s genetic or it may be hard to determine the exact cause. You can use specific mouthwashes designed for dry mouths, and you can also focus on good health habits like drinking water and eating healthfully.

Bad breath is frustrating, but your dentist can help. You deserve your confidence back in your personal and professional life. Let us review your situation. Contact us for a consultation today!
