Most people with halitosis have extremely clean mouths as they know they have a problem. Yet they still have bad breath. Cleanings are not the only answer, and will not get rid of the bad breath, Our treatments will control halitosis many times in one or two visits.
Because bad breath – also known as halitosis – can be caused by many different conditions, the first recommendation is that you schedule an appointment with the caring and professional staff at Brooklyn Smile for an oral evaluation. Your breath will be tested on a Halimeter, which measures the amount of Sulphur compounds in your mouth. That will help Dr. Herskovits diagnosis your condition. With the breath test, exam and consultation Dr. Herskovits can customize a treatment plan for you. The NON- invasive treatment is 99% successful when following Dr H’s simple instructions. Many people have tried all sorts of over the counter treatments for bad breath, and none of them work.
While halitosis can be a sign of several different conditions, the top three that we see at Brooklyn Smile are dry mouth, excess bacteria build-up, and gum disease. Dry mouth can be caused by a variety of factors, including medications and health problems, but there are professional-level products that a Brooklyn Smile dentist can provide to help keep your mouth salivated. And while brushing and flossing can help keep bacteria at bay, there is no substitute for a clean mouth than a professional teeth cleaning. These appointments are also a great time for patients to educate themselves on dentist-recommended products for at-home use. And patients who have gum disease need professional treatment for the bacteria that’s located in periodontal pockets below the gumline.
Rather than hiding behind a closed mouth due to concern about your bad breath, why not make an appointment right now to get to the root of the problem? Brooklyn Smile has helped countless patients reclaim their self-confidence, and we’d love to help you, too!
