Bad breath is an unpleasant experience for yourself and those around you. It’s normal for certain foods to impact your breath. Brushing your teeth or rinsing with mouthwash usually treats this problem. But there are cases where no matter how thoroughly your brush bad breath continues to hinder your life. This condition is known as halitosis or chronic bad breath. At Better Way Dental, we offer halitosis treatment as part of our general dentistry services.
Chronic bad breath can be caused by a variety of issues. Most often than not, patients experiencing halitosis are dealing with an underlying dental problem. Bacteria builds up in your mouth as you eat different foods. When oral hygiene isn’t optimal and professional dental care is neglected, bacteria lingers and creates problems. The unpleasant odor coming from your mouth is bacteria concentrating in different parts of the mouth.
- Tartar buildup
- Tooth decay

You won’t be the first patient we treat for halitosis and you won’t be the last. We want you to be as comfortable as possible. If there’s anything we can do to enhance your experience, do not hesitate in making us aware.
Our dedicated team will conduct a comprehensive examination of your mouth with the goal of finding the root cause of your bad breath. We can easily treat symptoms, but that would be a disservice to our patients. As an honest and trustworthy dental practice, we treat dental issues at their core.
Once the cause of the unpleasant breath is identified, our dental professionals will recommend specialized treatment options. Each patient will have unique needs and we will accommodate them.
