Treatment for Halitosis
Let us help you treat and eliminate bad breath.
Chronic bad breath can have underlying causes that don’t respond to over-the-counter remedies such as antibacterial mouth rinses. Sometimes, halitosis is a sign of a more serious health problem.
You should see your Hickory Flat Dental dentist at least twice a year for regular cleanings and exams. Regular check-ups can help you avoid or detect periodontal disease, dry mouth and other causes of bad breath.
If your dentist determines the odor is caused by gum disease, you will be referred to our periodontist for additional treatment. If the condition is not oral in origin, you may be referred to your family physician.
