Bad Breath Treatment

Causes of bad breath

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.

Treatment for bad breath

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.
