Halitosis Treatment in Phoenix

Valley Smiles offers halitosis treatment as part of our general dentistry services. Halitosis, or bad breath, can be an embarrassing problem. Many patients ignore it or simply deal with it by masking it. It is actually a more common problem than you might expect. We have effectively treated countless patients at our Phoenix dental practice.

What is halitosis?

Halitosis is unpleasant breath caused by an underlying issue. Bacteria in the mouth release sulfur compounds, which is what causes your breath to smell bad. These bacteria can come from food, tobacco use, poor dental hygiene, or other dental complications.

How is halitosis treated?

The first step in treating halitosis is to find the cause and eliminate it. If the cause is oral hygiene related, then improving your oral hygiene habits will usually help. This includes brushing and flossing regularly, using mouthwash, and avoiding foods that cause bad breath. If the cause is more serious, such as gum disease, then you may need more extensive treatment.

Halitosis is a common problem, but it can be treated effectively if you find the cause and take steps to eliminate it. Improving your oral hygiene habits is usually the best place to start. If the problem persists, this is where our qualified Valley Smiles dentists step in. We’ll thoroughly examine your mouth and find the culprit behind your unpleasant breath. Based on our findings we will recommend the most appropriate course of treatment for you.
