Do you suffer from bad breath on a frequent basis? Chronic bad breath, or halitosis, can be a disruptive oral health issue that affects your relationships, self-confidence and your overall quality of life. While it is common to get bad breath after eating garlic or onions, persistent halitosis needs professional general dental treatment from your dentist. Your bad breath could be a warning sign of an oral health problem that needs to be addressed. At Marietta Dental Professionals, we have a team of skilled dentists who can diagnose the underlying cause of your halitosis and provide the long-term relief that you need. Everyone deserves fresh breath and confident smile!
Treatment for Bad Breath
If you rely on mints and chewing gum to treat your bad breath, it is important to realize that you are only masking the problem. For long-lasting treatment, let one of our dentists determine what is causing your foul breath odor in the first place. In many cases, it is a by-product of poor oral hygiene. When food debris and bacteria are not cleaned from your teeth and gums after meals, foul smelling sulfur compounds are released as the bacteria feeds and multiplies. Proper brushing and flossing habits can reverse this type of bad breath. Don’t forget to brush your tongue, as millions of bacteria can reside within the grooves of your tongue at any given moment.
Your bad breath may also be a warning sign of an infection, such as gum disease or a dental abscess. It is very important to get the infection under control to not only freshen your breath but to also protect your health. At Marietta Dental Professionals, we offer full service dentistry in a comfortable, patient-centered environment. We are confident that we can accurately diagnose and treat your halitosis. Helping patients gain their most confident smile is what we do.
