If there’s one thing that can leave the most confident person feeling self-conscious, it’s the prospect of having bad breath. The good thing about having bad breath is that it’s not a disease and it can in fact be treated. The majority of cases are a result of an imbalance of the bacteria that builds up in the mouth and throat. At Integrated Dental Health, we can provide comprehensive treatment of bad breath for people looking to be rid of it once and for all.
Bad breath, also known as halitosis, is largely the result of bacteria on the back of the tongue that produces sulphur. It is this sulphur that creates the unpleasant smell. Other factors that can exacerbate the onset of halitosis include existing dental issues, dry mouth and smoking, as well as dietary habits, acid and bile reflux, and post-nasal discharge. However, as mentioned above, halitosis is not a disease and can be treated. Keep reading to learn more about halitosis treatment.
Integrated Dental Health provides effective halitosis treatment for patients looking to rid themselves of bad breath. We treat the condition by detoxifying and cleaning the biofilm and bacteria in the mouth, followed with a re-colonisation of good probiotics designed to live on the tongue.
The bad breath treatment process typically includes a 30 minute consultation where the dentist conducts an Oral-Chroma test, which measures up to five gaseous substances commonly found in your mouth. Three of these gases are known to cause bad breath. Once the dentist knows which gases are present, they’ll then determine the most appropriate course of action to help you say goodbye to halitosis.
