Treatment for Bad Breath

Addressing bad breath with mints or chewing gum is only masking your symptoms. For the most effective and long-lasting solutions, Dr. Schwarz treats the source of your halitosis. There are many factors that can contribute to chronic bad breath, ranging from an underlying medical condition or medication to poor dental hygiene and gum disease. In many cases, halitosis treatment begins with better brushing and flossing. The food debris and bacteria left in your mouth after meals must be properly removed. If not, specific compounds will form that emit a foul, unpleasant odor. Your tongue is a major source of bacteria; therefore, diligent efforts to clean your tongue while brushing must be adhered to when treating bad breath. Dr. Schwarz may also recommend an additional oral hygiene product to help you eliminate this lingering or embarrassing condition.

Best dental experience ever! Brittany was so sweet, gentle and comforting. I normally put off going to the dentist, but after I read all the reviews I decided to make an apt. I am very glad I did! Going back to get my crown 👑 Thank you Dr Travis and Brittany!
