Halitosis Treatment (Bad Breath Care)​

Everyone occasionally experiences halitosis (bad breath). For example, morning breath is a common condition due to nocturnal salivary recession (saliva helps flush food and bacteria from the mouth, keeping your breath fresh) The main causes of bad breath are breakdown of food particles in your mouth, bacteria buildup, dry mouth and tooth decay. Halitosis can be treated by our dental professionals who will work with you to help identify the cause and develop a treatment plan together. We use scaling and root planing to remove tartar below the gum line and smooth the roots. To prevent bad breath, patients are recommended to maintain good oral hygiene habits at home for ongoing care and regular grooming.

Tips to maintain fresh breath:
  • Maintain good dental hygiene – brushing the teeth, gums and tongue at least twice per day and floss once per day
  • Use a tongue scraper, cleaning as far back on the tongue as possible
  • Increase water consumption
  • Visit your dentist at least twice per year for a professional cleaning and exam
  • Chew sugar-free gum or suck on sugarless candy
  • Eat foods like raw carrots and celery
Please feel free to contact our office with any questions you may have regarding halitosis or our treatment options.
