We hear all the time, "My wife/husband says my breath stinks!" Bad breath can be embarrasing and can cause problems in your personal life and in your career, especially if you work with people! Before we can find a solution to your problem, we need to isolate the cause.
Some potential causes of halitosis are:
Periodontitis (Gum Disease)
Plaque on the Tongue or Hairy Tongue
Chronic Dry Mouth (Xerostomia)
Yeast/Fungal Infections of the Mouth (usually associated with dentures)
Your hygienist and Dr. Bach will seek to find the cause of your bad breath, and depending on what we find, the treatments will vary. If no dental condition can be pinpointed, we will be happy to give you a referral to your physician so that he or she may explore potential medical-related issues. You will be surprised how your life can change by addressing this simple issue!
