Treatment for Halitosis in Brooklyn, NY
Persistent bad breath may be a sign of gum disease. Bad breath, known as halitosis, can be caused by poor dental habits but may also be a sign of disorders or diseases.
Common causes of halitosis include:
- Dry Mouth
- Wearing Dentures
- Poor Oral Hygiene
- Tooth Decay
- Periodontal Disease
- Medication Side Effects
- Tobacco Use
To provide you with effective treatment for halitosis, Dr. Teichman and his experienced staff will work with you to create a home treatment program personalized just for you. This may include any or all of the following: traditional tooth brushing and flossing, regular cleaning and brushing of the tongue, or daily irrigation of the oral tissues.
Depending on the severity of your halitosis and its cause, we may also recommend an oral rinse that is available only through dental professionals.
