Halitosis Treatment in
Jacksonville, Florida

At Atlantic Dentistry, we recommend getting routine cleanings and checkups as a part of your general dental care. One reason for this is to catch any oral health issues you may have, such as halitosis, better known as bad breath. The main cause of halitosis is tooth decay or gum disease.

Halitosis (Bad Breath) Treatment in Jacksonville, Florida

Bad breath is caused by bacteria that can hide in spaces around the gums, and in most cases, it originates from the gums or the tongue.

Poor oral hygiene and leftover food particles can produce an unpleasant odor in your mouth. Saliva is another reason you may develop this issue. When you sleep, your saliva production decreases, and some people breathe through their mouth, causing dry mouth. When dry mouth occurs, it allows bacteria to multiply in your mouth since the saliva is not there to wash it away.

Treatment for Bad Breath

The cause of your bad breath or halitosis will determine what type of treatment you will need. At Atlantic Dentistry, we will examine your mouth and give you a professional cleaning. This will help to determine the level of your condition. There are several options for treatment, including tongue scraping, a strong mouthwash and continuous proper oral hygiene. Sometimes this condition can be caused by an underlying issue. If this is the case, you will be referred to your family physician for additional treatment.

There is no need to feel embarrassed by your bad breath any longer. Atlantic Dentistry can work with you to formulate a positive solution that eliminates your dental problem. We want your oral health to be a priority, and we accept most insurance plans. We also offer flexible payment options for those without dental insurance.

I have extremely high dental anxiety, and Dr. Murphy and his hygienist were so calming and gentle on my sensitive teeth. Their offices are really clean and nice with TVs in each exam room. The X-rays were really easy with new equipment and everything was shown to me digitally on the screen. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a new dentist in the area! I’m glad I came in!
