Halitosis or Bad Breath Treatment

Halitosis or Bad Breath Treatment

Halitosis is the  medical term used to describe an unpleasant odor from the mouth.  The occurrence of this is so common and so wide spread that it is considered both a medical and a social problem. Halitosis Treatment with Dr. Singer’s dental team can assist you with this.

With Halitosis, certain conditions in the mouth produce pungent gases that mix with exhalation and are perceived as bad breath.  The main causes are compounds produced as a result of the action of bacteria on proteins.

Dental caries, periodontal diseases and cigarette smoking are potential contributing factors for halitosis.

Maintaining good oral hygiene through self-care is necessary  — brushing teeth, mouthwash,  dental floss, toothpicks (Stimudents*) for cleaning teeth.

There is a strong association between bad odor, gingival disease, oral self-care and lifestyle.

Dr. Jeffrey Singer’s role in maintaining good oral health should be emphasized.  There is a great need to control dental caries and periodontal diseases because of their influence on halitosis.
