If you are experiencing bad breath, it is likely due to bacteria in your oral cavity. Many of our patients visit our practice complaining of bad breath, and we have found a variety of things to cause it. It may be lack of proper dental hygiene, the food or drinks they are consuming, smoking cigarettes, or having an infection or deep decay of the teeth. We diagnose the problem then provide an effective solution for reducing bad breath.
When a patient experiences bad breath, it can be damaging to their self-esteem. They feel afraid to confront others and don’t feel confident being in relationships. These struggles don’t need to continue if a patient visits us to get a dental screening and deep cleaning. This deep cleaning removes all of the bacteria built-up and decay from their teeth, and gives them a fresh mouth. We also urge our patients to stop habits like smoking, which can further cause bad breath.
Aside from providing a good cleaning, we also perform a check-up and x-rays to see if other dental issues are causing the bad breath. If you have bad breath, visit our team here at Nicholas Cosmetic Dental Center in Philadelphia, PA to discuss your options.
