Bad breath? You’re not alone. Let us help you get your confidence back.
Halitosis treatment in Gulfport is just one phone call away. One in four adults experiences halitosis or persistent bad breath. For our patients who experience chronic halitosis, the team at Walter Guillot, DMD has treatment options available.
Common causes of bad breath include medications, smoking, alcohol use and certain foods. Known culprits are onions, garlic and fish. As these foods break down, they react with the bacteria in your mouth, causing an unpleasant scent.
The best way to treat bad breath is through good oral hygiene. Flossing, rinsing and brushing with a soft-bristled brush will help to remove the food and bacteria. Going to the dentist every six months is another good way to get fresher breath.
Chronic halitosis can also be a sign of more severe dental problems including a significant build-up of bacteria or gum disease, so it’s important to make an appointment with our office. In many cases, a professional cleaning will take care of the issue. If gum disease is causing your bad breath, it’s crucial to begin treatment as soon as possible in order to prevent long-term oral damage.
