Most of us are occasionally affected with bad breath, but what if it is a constant struggle to achieve a fresh smelling smile? At Comfort Care Dental, we provide a wide range of services designed to help you achieve the perfect smile. One of these treatments is the Halitosis treatment to combat bad breath. What is involved with a halitosis treatment and could it benefit your smile? Read on to find the answers!
Halitosis is the technical term for what most of us call ‘bad breath.’ It can be an embarrassing problem that leaves many feeling down. Several things can contribute to halitosis including the foods we eat, smoking habits or the use of tobacco, dry mouth, or an underlying medical disorder. Poor oral hygiene and gum disease can also cause uncomfortable bad breath. Your dentist may choose a different treatment based on the reason for your halitosis.
Most cases of bad breath can be easily treated with a diet change or better oral hygiene habits, but there are a few cases that may need further treatment and diagnosis. Some of the symptoms to look out for are persistent dry mouth, sores in the mouth, pain when swallowing, white spots on the tonsils, or a fever. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms along with your bad breath, then contact our Chandler dental clinic for a consultation and a possible diagnosis to begin your personal treatment plan.
Our aim is for all our patients to leave feeling confident with their smile. Call us today to set up your next appointment or for more information on the services we offer to our Chandler patients.
