Chronic halitosis is a problem that can be overcome with the right treatment. Visit Lynn Creek Dental Care to find the solution to your bad breath so that you can smile with confidence.

Halitosis Treatment in Grand Prairie

The most common cause of recurring halitosis is odor-causing bacteria that is left trapped in the mouth for an extended period of time. Some of the areas where bacteria can often be found include:

  • between teeth
  • below the gum line
  • on the tongue

These areas can get overlooked when brushing and flossing, and odor-causing buildups are surprisingly common. By eliminating these bacteria accumulations, an individual can go a long way towards improving their breath.

It is also common for people who are suffering from halitosis to attempt to not only self-diagnose but treat the issue on their own. Some common methods for doing this include the use of chewing gum, mints and mouth rinses. The problem with these home remedies is that they do not actually treat the root cause of the bad breath. Instead, they only hide the smell, and the problem can actually worsen over time. Only by removing the odor-causing bacteria can the bad breath be truly eliminated once and for all.

At Lynn Creek Dental Care, we may offer several different treatment methods for overcoming halitosis, depending on what the cause is. The most obvious is to provide a total cleaning of the mouth. We provide these cleanings during regular dental checkups. However, more severe cases of halitosis may require an even deeper cleaning than what is offered with a regular dental checkup. If odor-causing bacteria is trapped beneath the gum line, we may need to provide periodontal services to treat the problem. This could include scaling and root planing treatment or gingivectomy oral surgery.

The best way to prevent halitosis is to keep up with proper oral hygiene practices. This includes brushing twice per day, flossing once per day and visiting our practice at least once every six months for regular dental checkups.

I switched to Lynn Creek this week and was extremely satisfied with the level of professionalism and efficiency. No wait time my appointment was scheduled accurately. Came back next day, an hour earlier by accident and they took me anyway! In and out in less than 30 min for my filling on tooth #15! Very happy with my new Dental Team!

From the first time I spoke with them on the phone, to when I left the office, the staff was excellent and made sure I was taken care of. I felt completely comfortable during my entire visit and knew I was in good hands. I hated going to the dentist when I was younger, I always felt like I was in trouble or not taking care of my teeth properly; At Lynn Creek, I had no anxiety what so ever.
