Halitosis – San Antonio, TX
Everyone has bad breath from time to time, whether it’s first thing in the morning or right after a spicy meal. However, halitosis is a bit different. It’s a type of bad breath that doesn’t go away after brushing your teeth, using mouthwash, or chewing mint gum. This type of problem is beyond annoying—it can actually lower a person’s confidence. It can cause someone to constantly worry, forcing them to avoid social engagements and time with friends and family. If your bad breath has you stumped, New Image Dentistry is ready to help, and we’re happy to say we have multiple solutions that have already worked for countless other patients struggling with halitosis in San Antonio, TX.

Our Bad Breath Solutions
In most cases, halitosis is caused by a buildup of foul-smelling bacteria in the mouth. This can develop due to a number of factors: a lack of consistent brushing and flossing, an infection, or genetics that make unwanted bacteria more common in someone’s oral cavity.
Usually, our first line of defense involves showing someone how to effectively clean their teeth at home. By using the right brushing and flossing technique, a patient can remove some of the bad bacteria and prevent it from coming back.
We can also help get rid of the stubborn bacteria that is causing the halitosis in the first place. This may involve giving a patient a professional cleaning or even laser periodontal therapy, which will systematically remove the plaque and tartar that contains the bacteria. We’ll get the mouth back to a healthy baseline and then show a patient how to keep it there. The end result will be that the halitosis shouldn’t come back, and if bad breath does occur (like it does for everyone), a quick rinse with some mouthwash should make it disappear.
