Bad Breath (Halitosis)
 

Many times bad breath is caused by the bacteria in the mouth and on the tongue. Sometimes it can be an indication of gum disease. Either way, your first stop to address persistent breath problems should be our office, because if gum disease is present, it must be treated promptly to avoid tooth loss. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults!

Possible causes for halitosis are:

  • Tooth Decay
  • Periodontal (Gum) Disease
  • Inadequate Oral Hygiene (not brushing and flossing)
  • Odor-causing foods
  • Use of Tobacco Products
  • Sinus or Respiratory Infection
  • Continued Mouth Dryness (Xerostomia)
  • Some Medical Disorders
  • Some Medications

Dr. Shah can help you determine the cause, and if the cause is an oral condition, a treatment plan can be developed to combat this common source of embarrassment.

Breath RxPart of your treatment may include Breath Rx™ products, available from our office. Ask us about Breath Rx™. Enjoy the confidence of knowing your breath is as fresh as it can be!
