Bad breath, also known as halitosis, isn’t an oral health problem. However, it is often a symptom for an oral health problem. Some of the causes for bad breath include gum disease, food, tobacco use, dry mouth, and other medical conditions. If you have chronic bad breath, then you may want to visit our dentist for treatment.
Your treatment will depend on what is causing your halitosis. For dry mouth, we may recommend chewing sugar-free gum, using artificial saliva, or putting a humidifier in your home. If gum disease is the cause of bad breath, then we will treat it with deep cleaning procedures and antibiotics. In addition to treating the cause of a halitosis problem, we may prescribe an antimicrobial mouthwash that will freshen your breath and fight the oral bacteria that produces bad smells.
