Halitosis Treatment

Halitosis is the medical term for bad breath which is not only an embarrassing social problem, but could also be an indicator of an underlying oral or systemic issue. Chronic halitosis requires timely attention and treatment.

The most common dental causes of halitosis include poor oral care such as infrequent brushing, flossing and gum disease. If we believe that the cause of your bad breath is not related to a dental issue, we may refer you to another specialist.

The dental treatments for halitosis largely depend upon its cause. The first step we undertake to resolve your bad breath is to find out what is causing the odor. Most of the time, a thorough dental cleaning can help you cleanse your mouth and give you a clean and fresh breath. We may also advise you on how to improve your oral care habits with proper brushing, flossing and the use of an antibacterial mouthwash. If your bad breath is caused by gum disease, then we will conduct a scaling and root planing treatment to curb the problem and to eliminate the odor associated with it. Scaling involves using special tools to access and clean the deep spaces between teeth and remove any plaque and tartar. Next, we will smooth the rough spots on the root surfaces (planing) in order to prevent future accumulations.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Q is fantastic. She is such a calm person and explains things in a way you understand. She was very kind and informative. I had a root canal done and she explained the procedure well and exactly what was to be expected. Her office staff are very professional and friendly. I will absolutely keep coming here."

"Beautiful kind people with affordable prices. My lumineer broke and the dentist was able to fix it. Excellent work. Then I went back for a cleaning and it was fantastic and my teeth felt awesome. Thank you to the receptionist as well who was very kind"

Jane R.

"I love Smile Matters! The office has personality and warmth, much of which is brought by the love staff and Dr. Quaidoo. A refreshingly female lead office with highly skilled and easy going staff. You won't be talked into anything here and they want to find a way to get you the care you need. In a medical field where Groupon deals can send patients seeking a deal every time they need a cleaning I am proud to settle down here and call this place my dental home!"
