Halitosis, or persistent bad breath, is more common than you may think. At Town and Country Smiles, we can help treat your halitosis and have your breath as fresh as ever!
What is Halitosis?
Halitosis is the medical term for bad breath. While some bad breath may be your fault, it could also be caused by underlying dental problems. At Town & Country Smiles, we can confidently find the root cause of your bad breath to reduce it!
The Cause of Bad Breath
Foods, dry mouth, hunger, or poor dental hygiene can result in temporary bad breath. However, chronic and persistent bad breath could be the result of other serious dental problems. Excess bacteria on the tongue or between the teeth and gums could be responsible for your bad breath, so you should make sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day and clean your tongue with a scraper.
Treatment For Bad Breath
First, we will determine the cause of your bad breath. If gum disease or tooth decay is the culprit, we will recommend the proper treatment. We will also monitor your tooth brushing and suggest mouthwashes and products to help control the bacteria.
