If you’re suffering from bad breath which just won’t go away then we can help with halitosis treatment. Fort Worth patients are sometimes reluctant to seek help for this embarrassing problem but don’t worry, it’s far more common than you might think.
Bad Breath Cure
It’s not unusual for your breath to smell after you’ve eaten food loaded with garlic or you’ve been drinking alcohol but when cleaning your teeth and rinsing several times a day with mouthwash doesn’t make any difference, we recommend a visit to our ‘breath doctor.‘ You might just be suffering from a condition known as halitosis which could be the result of tooth decay or gum disease.
What causes Halitosis?
Halitosis (bad breath) is commonly caused by plaque and bacteria which accumulate on the teeth, along the gumline, and toward the back portion of the tongue. Some bacteria actually protect against halitosis whereas others cause a pungent odor.
Dry mouth is another cause of halitosis because the body’s saliva acts as a natural mouthwash to rinse away food debris and bacteria, and if your body isn’t producing sufficient saliva then bacteria can linger no matter how well you brush and floss your teeth. Whatever the reason for your bad breath, your Fort Worth dentist is skilled in treating this condition.
‘Halitosis treatment near me’
Whether you reside in Fort Worth, White Settlement or Ridgmar, it’s good to know that we can rid you of your bad breath. The type of halitosis treatment you receive will depend on its cause. Often a deep clean of your teeth and gums is all that’s required to cure you of bad breath. Also known as scaling and planing, the dentist will carefully remove all traces of plaque from below the gum line and smooth out any rough areas on the tooth roots to prevent bacteria from sticking to them. Alternatively, laser tongue cleaning may be recommended and this is carried out using a gentle water laser which targets bacteria and removes them permanently from your tongue. Whatever treatment you receive, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene with daily brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash.
