Common Sources Of Halitosis
While we’ve all had bouts of bad breath following a garlic-heavy meal, chronic bad breath, also known as halitosis, could be a sign of a deeper health issue.
So, it’s best to see an experienced dentist like Dr. Roeder or Dr. Kulp to help you find the source, not just cover up the odor temporarily. A couple of oral health issues that could be causing your halitosis include:
- Cavities – Tooth decay could be causing the unpleasant smell in your mouth. A filling, dental crown, or root canal treatment can rid you of both the smell and the pain a cavity can cause.
- Gum disease – When food particles get beneath your gumline, they introduce bacteria that can spread infection and cause malodors. By treating your gum disease with a deep cleaning or advanced cases with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, we can bring peace to your gums and end the odor.
Secondly, even at that stage, he tells you exactly what he's going to do so you're not laying there wondering, "What's happening? How long is this going to take?" He really keeps you informed. Third, if it's more invasive surgery type of experience, they can put you to sleep in a safe way. They go over the top. They'll give you a blanket, a pillow, whatever will make you feel more comfortable. Because sometimes you're fearful, you do get cold, and sometimes I come in and the air conditioning's on maybe. Even though it's a hot day, I feel very, very cold, more so in the air conditioning. Then they will cover you up.
At the end of the process, they give you warm cloths to wipe your face because you get stuff on your face maybe. You just feel comforted. They take of you, and they give you a milkshake at the end because it's going to be hard to eat if you have had something done on your mouth. I'm not afraid to make the appointment, let's put it that way, and then I get here, and I don't feel any pain. There's never any discomfort at all. That's the best part about it.
The first step in halitosis treatment is diagnosing it with a saliva test. We might find that all you need is a thorough dental cleaning and dental exam, or we might need to treat your gum disease, cavity, or other underlying health issues to cure your halitosis.
