Halitosis Treatment

If you are concerned about chronic bad breath, also known as halitosis, you are not alone. Over 50 million people in the United States share your problem. There are various reasons for this condition, one of which is poor oral hygiene. Not brushing your teeth or brushing them improperly can lead to bad breath. That is not the only source of halitosis. Sometimes other health conditions can cause bad breath, also. If that turns out to be the case, you will be referred to your primary care physician. Other dental related causes are bacterial build up; gum disease can cause bad breath too. Decaying teeth are another common cause of halitosis. Most people with chronic halitosis have a buildup of large amounts of volatile Sulphur compounds on the back of the tongue. These compounds are the result of proteins being broken down by the bacteria in the mouth. This is what causes the bad odor.

You may not even be aware that you have halitosis unless someone mentions it to you. It can be embarrassing to find out that people have been avoiding you because of your constant bad breath. Many dentists are not well informed about the causes and treatment of severe halitosis. Fortunately, at Moores Chapel Dentistry, we are informed and armed to fight against it with general dentistry.

Treatment for Bad Breath

The procedure for eliminating your bad breath depends upon the cause. If it is due to decaying teeth, then they need to be cleaned out and filled. If it is due to bacterial build up, your teeth need to be cleaned professionally and a special mouthwash and toothpaste may be recommended for you to use. These special products contain ingredients that kill the bacteria that cause plaque buildup and halitosis. Chronic halitosis can be treated and your bad breath can be eliminated. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment. Dr. Chun Peng will consult with you about the causes and treatment for your particular situation.
