Halitosis (Bad Breath) Treatment
Chronic bad breath, clinically known as halitosis, can be uncomfortable and embarrassing, but it is treatable. With deep cleanings and professional guidance from your friends at RiverTree Dental and Implants, you don't have to go on living with bad breath.
Bad Breath/Halitosis Treatment
An estimated 1 in 4 people globally suffer from chronic bad breath/ halitosis. It’s a common problem and while chronic bad breath can cause embarrassment and anxiety, there are remedies.
Halitosis is caused by oral bacteria that is trapped in your mouth for an extended amount of time. The key to dealing with it is treating the root of the problem – removing the source of the odor. Most over-the-counter remedies such as mouthwash, mints, and gum can only cover up the issue.
At RiverTree Dental and Implants, we treat halitosis with a professional cleaning and oral cleanse to reach crevices not normally accessed by regular brushing and flossing. Occasionally, a deep cleaning, consisting of scaling and root planing, and potentially tongue scraping, is necessary to remove bacteria trapped below the gum line.
