Bad Breath (Halitosis) Treatment
Bad breath most often stems from periodontitis or dental decay. Periodontitis is a gum and bone disease that occurs when oral hygiene care is neglected. The irritated gums pull away from the teeth, which creates pockets between the gums and teeth. Bacteria and pus collect in these pockets, which gives you bad breath.
If you suffer from bad breath, visit Troy Family Dental to receive a complete dental evaluation. If any gum disease or decay is found, we can treat it almost immediately. Then, the infection will be removed and you won’t have to worry about bad breath any more, as long as you consistently maintain proper oral hygiene.
