No one is exempt from having occasional bad breath. Italian foods, Mexican foods, coffee, wine, and extremely pungent foods are all well-known to induce foul smelling breath. However, most of these only induce bad breath for a short time, and it is easily cured with a little bit of tooth paste and a rinse of mouthwash. However, some suffer from a more permanent form of bad breath known as halitosis. Halitosis is actually caused by rotting inside the mouth, so if you are experiencing long-lasting bad breath it is imperative that you seek general dentistry treatment.
Rotting inside the mouth is caused by food particles left behind inside the mouth that are not removed by flossing. Floss is the only tool designed to reach into the tight spaces between the teeth where food particles and bacteria love to hang out. If you are suffering from halitosis, please contact River Peak Dental today. Dr. Chris Poe, DDS, offers more than just a cover up for your bad breath; he offers professional and effective treatment that will treat the problem at its source. Often, a deep cleaning is the best place to start because this will remove rotting food particles from the mouth. Treating any infection that has also resulted is important because tooth decay and infected gums also begin to produce a foul smell. Halitosis can have serious personal and professional repercussions. River Heart Dental offers professional treatment for halitosis to help you overcome this dental concern.
