Halitosis Treatment in

If you experience chronic bad breath, it may be a sign of an underlying issue that can’t be fixed with brushing and flossing alone. At Creating Smiles, we will work with you to detect and eliminate the source.

Bad Breath Treatment in Lutz

If your chronic bad breath, or halitosis, is the result of an underlying issue, common treatments such as chewing gum or breath mints will only temporarily mask the problem. The most important thing to do in treating halitosis is to find the source. This will allow us to design a personalized treatment plan to eliminate the problem.

If it’s something that does not have to do with your oral health, we will refer you to a physician.

The most common causes of halitosis are:

  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Gum disease
  • Dry mouth
  • Smoking or tobacco use
  • Mouth, nose, or throat infections
  • Chronic conditions, such as diabetes or acid reflux

Our halitosis treatment can include something as simple as a professional cleaning. If the source of your halitosis derives from poor oral hygiene habits, we will also instruct you on the best techniques and methods for proper brushing and flossing. If gum disease is causing bad breath, we may be able to address the issue with a special deep cleaning known as scaling and root planing.

Hands down, the best dental office I’ve ever been to. Everyone is happy and helpful. No dental shaming. Excellent knowledge and communication-they took pictures of my teeth and showed me my x-rays so I could see and understand everything that was going on. This is an example of how all healthcare should be.
