Treatment for Bad Breath

Chronic bad breath, or halitosis, can be embarrassing in professional and personal interactions. It can also be a sign of poor oral health. There is often a dental reason for bad breath that does not dissipate with brushing, flossing or mouthwash. At Smile Design Studios, we can help uncover the cause of your bad breath and find the right treatment to stop bad breath for good.

Bad breath is usually caused by bacteria, decay or an infection in the mouth. Spots of decay, gum disease and infected teeth can all produce foul odors that cannot be rinsed away with mouthwash or covered with breath mints. A thorough dental exam can uncover the source of bad breath. In some cases, all that is needed is a professional dental cleaning to remove hidden tartar and plaque that contain bacteria. The first step to stopping bad breath is making an appointment for a dental checkup and cleaning.

Halitosis Treatment

In most cases, treatment for halitosis requires dental care to address the issue causing bad odor. This can include removing and filling cavities or a deep cleaning to address gum disease or infection. In some cases, a tooth may be infected and requires a root canal to stop the infection, bad breath and to save the tooth. Our dental team can also give you oral hygiene tips to help eliminate bad breath if there are no dental issues. You may be referred to your primary doctor if the source is internal.

You do not need to live with the embarrassment of chronic bad breath. Contact our office in Missouri City to schedule a checkup and cleaning to find the source of your halitosis, and get the treatment you need. We accept many types of dental insurance and welcome new patients to our practice.
