The main symptom of halitosis is a bad odor from the mouth that is considered beyond a socially acceptable level. The odor can be worse in the morning or after smoking, drinking coffee, or eating certain foods such as garlic.
At All Family Dental Care , we understand how uncomfortable and embarrassing bad breath can be. That’s why we offer a variety of halitosis treatment options to help you feel confident in your smile again.
We can begin by performing an oral exam, which will give us an idea of the underlying cause of your halitosis. We may also recommend that you take a detailed medical history and provide us with a list of medications that you are taking. This information will help us better determine what is causing your bad breath, as well as the best course of treatment to address it.
We may recommend lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking or drinking alcohol, brushing after meals, or chewing sugar-free gum. These simple solutions can be helpful in reducing bad breath and preventing it from coming back.
If your halitosis is caused by a medical condition, we may prescribe an antibiotic or antifungal medication to kill the bacteria that cause the infection. We may also recommend certain treatments such as hydrogen peroxide mouthwashes, tongue scraping, or water-based flossing.
