Bad breath is embarrassing. There’s no way around this simple fact! Everyone on the planet has had bad breath at some point, but recurring bad breath is a completely different story. When we talk about halitosis treatment at our Phoenix dentist office, we are talking about treating constant, life-altering bad breath.
We are all going to experience a stinky mouth after eating a tuna salad sandwich or drinking coffee. This level of bad breath is normal and to be expected. However, if you have mints hidden in your home, office, car, and pockets, you might be dealing with something more serious.
Bad breath is often a sign that you have a problem with bacteria growth. This could be coming from a few different sources, like one of the following:
The bacteria living in your mouth can be found in many other places. The same bacteria that makes other things, like rotten meat, smell bad can be found in your mouth. For most, this isn’t a problem, but some patients struggle to keep bacteria in line. Poor oral hygiene and a weak immune system are just two things that could inhibit your ability to fight the bacteria in your mouth.
We are dedicated to helping you find a solution to your bad breath woes. There’s no reason for you to feel self-conscious any longer! Whether your bad breath is a result of a lingering gum disease infection, or if you need to take a look at your diet, we can help.
We’ll begin with an exam and evaluation that measures the amount of sulfur compounds in your mouth. Sulfur compounds are the waste products that bacteria leave behind. This will give us a good idea of what exactly the problem is! Once we have this information, we can proceed with treatment.
If your bad breath is a result of gum disease, we will work to eliminate that infection through our state-of-the-art perioscopy therapy . We can eliminate the infection living under your gumline, and you will very quickly notice a difference in the way your mouth tastes and smells!
If we find that your bad breath is separate from an infection, we will turn to some of our other treatment options. Many patients benefit from education about how to properly clean their tongue. You might also benefit from a prescription-strength mouthrinse that will eliminate the harmful bacteria in your mouth, leaving you with far fewer sulfur compounds to cause problems!
