Bad Breath-Halitosis

Treatment For Halitosis And Bad Breath | Dental Health Maintenance | Lewiston, ME

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!

I had an unfortunate event (broken tooth) and a co-worker recommended Aspire. I couldn't be happier with the experience I have had - from the wonderful receptionist, amazing hygienist and ultimately Dr. Lee's mannerisms!! Everyone was so helpful, pleasant and understanding. They were able to get me right in and fix my tooth the same day!! Would recommend to anyone looking for a comforting staff that makes you feel safe in these crazy times!

"I was seen promptly and quickly put at ease with the Dr's kind gentle manner. Let's face it.....no one likes having to go to the dentist right? It was a great experience, no pressure and I was given "options" which really made me feel in control......I really appreciated that. With state of the art equipment, a clean professional office and excellent staff (thanks Linda!") I would HIGHLY recommend this office."

I always have the best experience at Aspire Family Dentistry, they all truly care for their patients at the highest level. All of the hygienists are super friendly, and very good at what they do. Dr. Lee always lightens the mood with chit chat and jokes - not to mention he is the best dentist I have ever had the pleasure of being a customer of. Also, I think the addition of the Television and the screen that shows the x-rays of your teeth is awesome! 10/10. Would recommend to everyone!
