Halitosis (Bad Breath) Treatment
Bad breath or halitosis is breath with an unpleasant odor. Some bad breath, such as “morning mouth” or food (i.e. onion or garlic) tainted breath is normal. However, bad breath may be caused by abnormal conditions that threaten your health and require diagnosis and treatment:
- Poor dental hygiene
- Infections in the mouth
- Dry Mouth (Xerostomia)
- Respiratory tract infections
- Diseases of the liver, lung, kidney, digestive tract, and sinus; diabetes, reflux, etc.
- Smoking and chewing tobacco
Given the grave possible causes of bad breath you should see TLC Dental Group, the home of “Gentle Dentistry,” for an immediate halitosis consultation. We are a leading Syracuse specialist in the treatment of halitosis with years of experience in successfully curing the bad breath of our patients.
To establish the cause of your halitosis we will review your medical history, diet, personal habits, and symptoms. We also will carefully examine your teeth, gums, mouth, and salivary glands and may refer you to a physician for further testing. We then will offer you options for appropriate treatment to eliminate your halitosis and restore your good breath.
