Bad breath can be caused by various factors. Brushing, flossing, and mouthwash will only mask the odors temporarily. If you don’t brush and floss daily, particles of food remain in the mouth, collecting bacteria, which can cause bad breath. Food that collects between the teeth, on the tongue, and around the gums can rot, leaving an unpleasant odor. At your professional cleaning appointment, we can remove all the particles.
Partially erupted wisdom teeth may also cause bad breath and may need to be removed. If you suffer from dry mouth, we can prescribe you products that could help. The odor may also be the sign of a medical disorder. If our doctor determines that your mouth is healthy but you still suffer from bad breath, they may refer you back to your family doctor or a specialist to determine the cause. Some medications may also play a role in creating mouth odors.
Mouthwashes are generally for temporary relief from bad breath and do not have a long-lasting effect. If you need extra help in controlling plaque, we may recommend using a special antimicrobial mouth rinse.
Here at Your Caring Dentist, we can examine you to determine the cause of your bad breath. We can then design a specific treatment plan for you. Multiple factors, from the local cause to the systemic illness, are analyzed carefully to determine the exact cause for the bad breath before prescribing the treatment plan. Our doctors are experienced in analyzing and diagnosing the root cause. Treating the actual cause helps to solve the exact problem rather than temporarily rectifying the symptoms.
Dr. Dobee IS AMAZING, she helped me with my deep clean and continued to follow up with me afterwards to make sure I was experiencing minimal pain throughout the recovery process. She really cares about her patients and I HIGHLY recommend her!
Wow Dr. Dobee is by far the best dentist I've ever been to. She's not only really intelligent and knows exactly what she's doing but she's also very funny and makes the whole experience of going to a dentist a really great one.
I couldn't be happier with my care at Dr Dobee's office! Everyone there is amazing and thanks to Dr Dobee I am no longer afraid of the dentist. Especially thanks to Des at the front desk for making all my visits seamless. Love you guys!
Best dentist I've had and so glad I found her…outstanding in her field but also great interpersonal skills and sensitive to her patients needs. Staff Joanna and Des are professional and make patient feel comfortable and welcomed. I enjoy my visits and it is because the staff and Dentists are ON IT!
I had some problems with my insurance which the front desk took care of and they were super friendly while waiting for responds regarding my insurance. My visit was very informative also the treatment plans weren't pushed and forced like other dentists do. So they're going to be my place for dental treatments from now on!
I'm so fortunate to have found dr Dobee !
She's a beautiful soul! Very caring & professional !
Very trusting ! I have had the bad luck to get bad dentistry practiced upon my teeth , Dobee has been do everything she can to help me out with the budget I have . Her work is worth every penny !
Dr. Dobee has a heart of gold and the skills of an amazing dentist. I had the pleasure of having her take care of my teeth and make solid recommendations on what I need for future work. I walked out with super clean teeth and a well taken care of smile.
I came here because of the yelp reviews and they didn't disappoint. Great availability and friendly staff.
A trip to the dentist you will actually enjoy! It's the first time I've ever looked forward to my next dental appointment. I mean what dentist do you know that's had a private dinner with Obama??
