BAD BREATH TREATMENT

FEEL MORE CONFIDENT

Don't deprive yourself of meeting and talking to people. Social situations are important on personal and professional occasions. Feel more confident with the Bad Breath Treatment. It is completely safe, easy, non-invasive, and highly effective in the treatment of periodontal disease and bad breath.

THERE ARE FIVE STEPS IN THE BAD BREATH TREATMENT:

1. Screening:

The mouth is examined for visible dental problems. Samples of bacteria from the tongue, throat and teeth are sent to a microbiology laboratory to identify the types, locations and levels of the oral bacteria. This comprehensive report guides the treatment and maintenance for each individual.

A detailed assessment of contributing factors identifies the cause of the infection. Bad breath (halitosis) can be caused by many different things, such as digestive tract problems, diet, dry mouth, periodontal disease (gum disease) and overgrowth of harmful bacteria in the mouth.

2. Treatment:

Treatment consists of targeting those bacteria and amoeba (parasites) that are causing infection. Topical antibiotic rinses are used short-term to reduce harmful bacteria and restore microbial balance in the mouth. These antibiotic rinses are prepared to achieve a healthy balance of oral bacteria.

3. Evaluation:

Following the two week treatment, the condition of the mouth is evaluated and the amount of healing is noted. Microbiology tests are repeated to check for any remaining harmful bacteria and medications designed to treat local areas are used to achieve further healing.

4. Maintenance:

Regular dental hygiene appointments and good oral home care are essential for a stable, healthy mouth. Our special mouthwashes are designed to gently balance the biofilm and are used on a daily basis along with effective brushing and cleaning between the teeth.

5. Retesting:

We recommend a microbiology testing at least once a year to check if bacteria are in balance. If harmful bacteria are increasing, it indicates that the infection may return and retreatment may be required.

"I visited this Dental Office for a broken molar. The visit was amazing. The work was very well-done, painless, and fast! They really spoke to me gently, and were very understanding about my tooth. It was all fixed up, and wow! What a great result. I am smiling again!"
