Halitosis Treatment

Also known as chronic bad breath, halitosis affects millions of people. It is usually caused by bacteria in the mouth. People suffering from halitosis often try to treat the issue using gum, mints or mouthwash. Unfortunately, these will not usually solve the problem in the long-term. At Falls Lake Dental, we will work with you to determine the exact cause of your halitosis, and then we will provide the treatment needed to eliminate the issue.

In most cases, halitosis can be treated with a professional teeth cleaning. We provide this treatment during regular dental checkups, but if you need an additional cleaning, call us to schedule an appointment. Tongue scraping can also be helpful in eliminating bad breath. Halitosis is sometimes a sign of gum disease. If this is the case, there are various treatments we can provide to treat this troubling condition. Patients should seek treatment for gum disease as soon as possible in order to prevent progression of the disease.

The best way to prevent halitosis is to maintain strong oral hygiene practices including regular brushing and flossing and visiting us at least twice a year for a regular dental checkup. There are times when chronic halitosis is a symptom of a more serious condition. Our team will help to determine if this is the case.

If you are suffering from halitosis, give us a call today so we can get started on treatment right away! You can reach us at (919) 322-0390.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Patel and his staff are knowledgeable, professional, and absolutely wonderful. As a person who has, for years, experienced anxiety when faced with trips to the dentist, I am delighted to have found this practice. Not only is Dr. Patel personable and likable, he very clearly explains his recommendations and uses up-to-date x-ray and photo technology to show his patients what he sees during his thorough examination."

W. O.

"My dental experience with Dr. Patel has been nothing but amazing. He took time to explain any concerns and questions i had. He actually took time to make me understand the cause of my problem and told me what to do to prevent it from happening again. Most doctors just fix the problem and let you go until it happens again. He is very gentle and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend going to Dr. Patel. Going to his office feels like I'm stepping in a spa at first. All the dental anxiety is forgot as soon as i see Dr. Patel's caring personality."

"I would recommend Dr. Patel (and his staff) to anyone who is looking for a dentist that genuinely cares about their patients. Overall I had a great experience."
