There are two main causes for halitosis – poor oral hygiene or gastric problems. When halitosis is caused by the former, a dentist can help you get rid of the problem with general dentistry. Correct brushing, flossing and cleaning of the tongue are often enough to resolve the issue. However, if your halitosis persists, we can recommend toothpastes and mouthwash that may work better for you. In many cases, we will require you to book an appointment with Sycamore Hills Dentistry so that we can carry out a comprehensive exam to determine the root cause of your halitosis.
Often times, we have found that patients who present with halitosis are actually suffering from tooth decay, gum disease of other infections of the mouth. These types of infections can cause halitosis as a secondary condition and will require in-office treatment. With the cutting edge technology used at Sycamore Hills Dentistry, we can easily determine what is causing your halitosis and provide you with a treatment plan to correct any underlying issues.
