Common Sources of Halitosis

While we have 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 is best to see an experienced dentist like Dr. Roeder or Dr. Kulp to help you find the source and 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.

Diagnosing Halitosis

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.
