Bad Breath / Halitosis Treatment in Omaha
Bad breath is embarrassing and could be an underlying symptom of something more serious. Get examined at Today’s Dental for the proper treatment to get rid of your bad breath.
If bad breath is causing you to keep your mouth shut and avoid close encounters with people, you might need more than a mint. Persistent bad breath, also called halitosis, is a condition that can be caused by different things, some more serious than others. To learn more about bad breath prevention and treatment, you first need a better understanding of the causes.
Bad breath prevention begins with you. The following at-home tips may help reduce or even eliminate your bad breath:
Your dentist in Omaha is essential for bad breath prevention and treatment. When you come in for your bi-yearly dental checkup, we will thoroughly clean your teeth, removing the plaque and tartar that may be contributing to your halitosis. You will love your mouth’s fresh, clean feeling after a professional cleaning at Today’s Dental!
The dentist also examines your teeth, gum, and mouth during the dental checkup. This examination helps rule out any oral health conditions contributing to bad breath, such as gum disease. If there are any oral health problems, we will provide you with a customized treatment plan. The plan will explain everything the dentist recommends, costs, and the expected timeline. Your halitosis treatment may be as simple as using a special toothpaste or mouthwash to eliminate more bacteria causing bad breath.
Bad breath treatment could also be part of a larger treatment. For example, if we determine that you have gum disease, our gum disease treatment plan will treat the larger issue and hopefully solve the side effect of bad breath simultaneously.
Our professional dental staff is sensitive to what you may be feeling if you have chronic bad breath. We are committed to being caring and compassionate. It’s our job to help you in all matters of oral health, including halitosis. You don’t need to feel anxious or embarrassed to discuss your bad breath condition with us. We are here to listen carefully to you and then closely examine your teeth, gums, and mouth so we can diagnose your condition correctly. A good diagnosis is the first step toward a successful treatment. Your dentist in Omaha has the qualifications to treat halitosis and prevent it from returning.
