Persistent bad breath is something millions suffer from. There’s no need to be embarrassed at Polished Dentistry! We’ll help you treat this problem quickly and bring you back to having fresh breath.
What is Halitosis?
Halitosis is the medical term for bad breath. While you may think your bad breath is your fault, it can also be caused by a dental problem you are unaware of. At Polished Dentistry, we will fully examine your oral history and health to discover the cause of your bad breath.
Bad Breath Causes
Temporary bad breath can be caused by certain foods, dry mouth, hunger, or poor dental hygiene. If your bad breath is chronic and persistent, dental hygiene or other serious dental problems may be the cause. Bacteria on the tongue or between the teeth and gums can also be the culprits. Make sure you are properly brushing your teeth at least 2 times a day and cleaning your tongue with a scraper to minimize bad breath.
Treatment for Bad Breath
The first step in curing your bad breath is to determine the cause. If the cause is gum disease or tooth decay, we will recommend the proper course of treatment. We will also make sure you are brushing correctly and recommend mouthwashes and products to control bacteria.
