Renew Your Speaking Confidence With Bad Breath Treatment
At Dripping Springs Family Dentistry in Dripping Springs, we understand that bad breath can be a significant source of embarrassment, which is why we’re proud to offer our patients bad breath treatment that will determine and treat the cause of your halitosis.
How is bad breath treated at our office?
After a thorough visual examination of your teeth, gums, tongue, cheeks, throat and palate, we may recommend taking x-rays to determine if tooth decay or gum disease may be the source of your bad breath. We may also analyze the bacteria in your mouth and recommend further diagnostic testing.
Once we identify the cause of your bad breath, we will formulate a treatment plan that may include professional cleanings and scaling to remove plaque and bacteria from teeth and gums. We may also recommend a special mouthwash or toothpaste to help control the odor-causing bacteria in your mouth.
What benefits does bad breath treatment provide?
Treating bad breath is important not only for cosmetic reasons but also for your overall health. If left untreated, the bacteria that cause bad breath can multiply and lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental problems. In addition, bad breath can be a sign of an underlying medical condition such as diabetes or GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Should we have concerns that a systemic condition is causing your bad breath, we’ll encourage you to see your general practitioner for examination.
Don’t let chronic bad breath keep you from living your life. Our team of dental professionals is here to help!
