What is halitosis?

Most people have smelly breath when they wake up in the morning or after eating a meal with strongly flavored foods. But halitosis refers to having bad breath all the time, even after brushing your teeth. This type of bad breath is usually a sign of dental health problems or underlying medical conditions.

Can halitosis be cured?

Through a personalized diagnosis and treatment plan, we can put you on a path toward fresher breath. The most common ways to treat halitosis include:

  • Deep cleaning
  • Filling or root canal
  • Oral appliance
  • Gum disease treatment

If we can’t find the cause of your bad breath through a dental examination, we may refer you to your primary physician to determine whether or not your bad breath is caused by a medical concern like respiratory infection, liver issue, or something else.
