Bad Breath Treatment From Your Dentist Will Freshen Things Up
Bad breath, or halitosis, is embarrassing and frustrating to deal with. It’s possible there’s a medical reason for your bad breath, and it’s not your fault. If you’ve done everything you can think of to get rid of foul breath and it’s still there, it’s time to see a dentist.
At Comfort Dental Spa, we can look at your mouth and teeth and find the cause of the problem. Sometimes it’s simply a matter of brushing your teeth more carefully or treating gum disease. However, you might also have poor-fitting dental appliances, an infection, or another problem.
Eating specific foods can cause bad breath. So can using tobacco regularly. If these issues are the problem, a simple lifestyle change may be the cure you need.
Seeing your dentist regularly makes a big difference. We can do professional dental cleanings and remove the plaque and buildup that can cause bad breath. There are mouthwashes that help get rid of bacteria that we can recommend.
If your problem is due to dry mouth, it’s important to find out what’s causing it. Some medications cause dry mouth, and changing to a different option may end your bad breath. You can also use a special mouthwash for dry mouth and focus on drinking water and other good habits.
Sometimes your bad breath treatment isn’t about your mouth at all. There are some serious medical conditions that have halitosis as a side effect. If we determine that the cause of your problems is not oral, we will refer you to your doctor for additional tests.
Halitosis can damage your confidence and make it hard for your to function normally at work or in your personal life. There’s no reason to put up with it! Get proper bad breath treatment by making an appointment with Comfort Dental Spa today.
