Common Dental Issues:
By Aspire Family Dentistry
Halitosis, a.k.a. bad breath is more about your oral health than social situations.
A condition that may be caused by everything from what you eat and drink, to health conditions, or lack of dental hygiene, bad breath (halitosis) is very real and something that can often be improved with the help of your dental team here at Aspire Family Dentistry in Lewiston, Maine.
There are temporary methods to alleviate halitosis, like gum, mints and mouthwashes, and if those work, great. You may have just eaten too much garlic. If the bad breath persists despite those remedies, it’s useful to get it checked out because it could be an indicator of something more serious, but also treatable once detected and diagnosed.
We start by diagnosing the cause(s) of the bad breath, then conduct and prescribe one or multiple treatments that will help your breath by increasing the health of your mouth.
“There’s nothing fun about bad breath for you, or those around you. It doesn’t have to be that way!“
