What is halitosis?

Halitosis refers to having bad breath all the time, even after brushing your teeth. The average person has smelly breath when they wake up in the morning or after eating a meal with strongly flavored foods, but if you’ve got bad breath all the time, it’s usually a sign of dental health problems or underlying medical conditions.

What are the causes of bad breath?

Halitosis, or chronic bad breath, can be caused by one or many different dental health conditions, including:

  • Inconsistent dental hygiene
  • Cavities or infection
  • Cigarettes or tobacco products
  • Gum disease
  • Bacteria-filled plaque
  • Mouth breathing
  • Dry mouth
  • Dental appliances
  • Various medical conditions

Is Halitosis curable in Coeur d’Alene?

We can put you on a path toward fresher breath through a personalized diagnosis and treatment plan. The most common ways to treat halitosis are:

  • Deep cleaning to get rid of plaque, tartar, and bacteria below the gumline
  • Eliminating decay with a filling or root canal
  • Rinsing with a mouthwash that kills bacteria
  • Gum disease treatment

If we can’t find the cause of your bad breath through a dental examination, your primary physician may be able to determine whether or not your bad breath is caused by a medical concern like a respiratory infection, liver issue, or other health issue.
