Bad breath – which is also known as halitosis – is a worrying problem that can also be embarrassing, but there is no need to put up with it. If you suffer from bad breath, Dr. Marinic will be able to suggest a range of solutions.
Dr. Marinic will be able to spot problems such as gum disease, dry mouth or other disorders. That’s why its important to maintain good oral hygiene, schedule regular visits to our office and have a professional cleaning done by our hygienist at least every 6 months.
Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day and clean between your teeth each day using floss or interdental cleaners. Don’t forget to brush your tongue, too!
If the odor is due to periodontal (gum) disease, sometimes a professional periodontal cleaning is needed to remove the bacteria and plaque that accumulated. Dr. Marinic may also recommend a special antimicrobial mouth rinse.
Keeping your mouth healthy and stopping periodontal disease are essential to reducing bad breath. So make sure you schedule regular dental visits for a professional cleaning and checkup with Dr. Marinic and our hygienist.
