Don’t Let Bad Breath Keep You From Social Interactions

Bad breath, or halitosis, is a common problem that can be embarrassing and difficult to manage. However, there are several treatments available to help combat underlying causes and restore fresh breath. We first need to pinpoint the cause. Bad breath can result from any of several things, including inadequate oral hygiene, gum disease, dry mouth, smoking, and certain medical conditions. Dr. Bickler and our team can help identify the cause of your breath problems and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.

One of the best ways to fight bad breath is by practicing good oral hygiene. We recommend you:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day
  • Floss once a day
  • Use an antibacterial mouthwash
  • See us regularly for dental cleanings and exams to remove the plaque and bacteria buildup that may be causing bad breath

If gum disease is the culprit of your bad breath, we may recommend treatment to help restore gum health and eliminate sour breath. This may include a deep cleaning using scaling and root planing and/or Perio Protect, a specialty medication that is delivered below the gumline.

Chronic dry mouth, can also be the cause of your bad breath. We can offer advice and tips to help you manage your dry mouth. Your dentist can also recommend a specialty product to help reduce your chances of getting cavities.
