Halitosis (bad breath)

Many patients experience bad breath at one time or another.  Bad breath can stem from many different causes.  A dental exam can help to rule out an infection or other dental condition as the cause for bad breath.  If there are recurrences of bad breath, a prescription halitosis treatment along with improved oral hygiene, may be the solution.  This type of treatment, that is most effective against bad breath, can only be prescribed by a dentist.
