Halitosis Treatment

At Your Expressions Family Dentistry, we understand that chronic bad breath (halitosis) is a serious problem. It not only impacts your confidence but can be a symptom of other dental health issues. That is why we offer halitosis treatment to improve your mouth’s health and restore your confidence.

What is Halitosis?

Bad breath is a common problem that everyone experiences from time to time. You can easily treat your bad breath with breath mints, chewing gum or mouth rinse. If you find over-the-counter remedies are no longer enough to cure your bad breath, you may be suffering from halitosis.

Sometimes called chronic bad breath, halitosis can be caused by a variety of oral health issues. That is why it is important to schedule an appointment with our dentist to determine what is causing your halitosis. If you are concerned about your breath, call our office today.

What Causes Halitosis?

Halitosis can be caused by several underlying conditions and problems, including:

  • Tooth decay: Left untreated, severe cavities and decay can impact the quality of your breath.

  • Poor dental hygiene: If you skip out on regular brushing and flossing, it can cause bacteria and plaque to build up in the tissues of your mouth, teeth and tongue. Failing to properly clean dentures or oral appliances can also allow odor-causing to grow in your mouth.

  • Gum disease: Toxins from built-up plaque can lead to infections of your gums. These infections can cause severe decay and damage in your gums, tooth roots and eventually your jaw bone.

  • Medications: Some medications can indirectly contribute to your bad breath by causing dry mouth. Other medications can release chemicals in the body that affect your breath odor.

How is Halitosis Treated?

Our dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth to determine the underlying cause of your bad breath. Depending on your needs, we can recommend:

  • Mouth rinses and toothpastes: If your bad breath is caused by poor oral hygiene or the early stages of gum disease, our dentist may recommend antibacterial mouth rinses and toothpastes to kill the bacteria.

  • Gum disease treatment: If your bad breath is caused by advanced gum disease, we may recommend a treatment plan to restore the health of your gum tissue.

  • Improved oral hygiene: Our dentist will work with you to improve your brushing and flossing habits. If you have dentures or oral appliances, we can also instruct you on how to best care for them to avoid future issues.

  • Regular dental checkups: Prevention is the best remedy. A regular checkup and professional cleaning every six months can maintain your overall dental health and keep your breath fresh.

I love Dr. Pallavi Chellur! She takes the right measures to make sure you’re comfortable, provides you with information along the way of each procedure...I almost fell asleep numerous times during cavity fillings because of how confident I was in her! 5/5 recommend, you won’t regret going to her.

If you're looking for a dentist office that provides professional and detailed work then this is the place for you. I absolutely love the welcoming environment and the staff is amazing. They are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. The usual wait time ranges from 1-2 minutes which I never experienced anywhere else.

Dr. Chellur is a meticulous practioner. She did everything from removing a broken crown to the implant & the new crown. No pain & no discomfort during the whole process. The new tooth fits perfectly.
