Most people experience bad breath at some point in their lives, in fact an estimated 60 million Americans suffer from bad breath.
At Linden Dental Associates, we understand that bad breath is a sensitive subject for most, which is why we treat it with sensitivity. The majority of bad breath cases are caused by periodontal disease, or gum disease. Other causes of bad breath include:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Ill-fitting dental crowns, bridges and dental restorations
- Cracked, leaking or poorly designed dental fillings
- Poorly cleaned dentures
- Dietary habits, including foods, drinks and smoking
Don’t suffer any longer. If your life has been negatively impacted by temporary bad breath or chronic halitosis, treatment is available. At Linden Dental Associates, our doctors have created a Bad Breath Program that addresses the cause, not just the symptoms, so that you can feel confident once again. If you have dry mouth, we have specific products and procedures to stimulate saliva, thus reducing the amount of bacteria in your mouth. These bacteria are what cause the bad taste and odor. Once you reduce or eliminate the bacteria, the bad breath goes away.
