THe Fresh Breath Option from Dentistry @ 150 Eglinton East

Whatever the cause of your bad breath, our dental professionals can help you get to the bottom of it!

At Dentistry @ 150 Eglinton East a frequent question we are asked professionally is what to do about bad breath.

Sometimes it’s the patient asking what they can do about it, sometimes they’re asking about a friend, family member or even a co-worker.

What causes bad breath?

Occasionally, bad breath can be caused by various medical conditions, most commonly sinusitis, a hiatus hernia, acid reflux or dry mouth. Often, bad breath is due to the build up of tartar and stains on the teeth, above and below the gum-line that encourage the retention of plaque, an adhesive mixture of bacteria and food.

Another important factor in bad breath is diet – for example, insufficient Vitamin C and antioxidants may contribute to bleeding gums.

How can we help?

Whatever the cause, we’ll get to the bottom of it! We start by taking a small sample of oral bacteria and other cultures from the mouth.

We then send them off to a microbiology laboratory to identify the types, locations and levels of oral bacteria. We take this detailed report and use it as a guide to develop a customized treatment plan to freshen up your bad breath.

Treatment consists of targeting the bacteria and amoeba (parasites) that are causing infection. Oravital® topical antibiotic rinses are used to reduce harmful bacteria and restore microbial balance in the mouth. These antibiotic rinses are prepared to achieve a healthy balance of oral bacteria.
