Halitosis is a dental problem that can inconvenience, trouble and annoy many people. Halitosis is a technical term for chronic bad breath. No matter how many times you brush your tongue, rinse with mouthwash and eat mints, that bad breath just won’t go away! If you’re a victim of halitosis, our dentists, Dr. Bryce Barfuss and Dr. Erik Permann, would like to teach you all about the problem. The more you know, the better chance you have of dealing with it.
There are many causes of halitosis, like poor oral hygiene, dental issues, infections (in the throat, mouth or nose), dry mouth, smoking, using tobacco products and chronic health issues, like gastric reflux, diabetes, liver disease and kidney disease. If you suffer from halitosis, then it’s best to seek treatment when you can. Fortunately, our dentist can help you! When you come to our office, he will examine your teeth, gums, smile and mouth to determine the cause of your bad breath. Then, he will provide the right treatment to help you.
There are many different types of treatments available to help you eliminate your bad breath and give you the top-notch health you need. Some treatments can be used at home, like an improved oral hygiene routine, drinking water throughout the day, chewing sugar-free gum regularly and quitting your tobacco-use habits. There are also professional treatments that can help. Some treatments include restorations for dental issues and others include treatments from a healthcare professional for chronic health issues. No matter the treatment, feel free to call and schedule an appointment today!
