Does stale, unwelcome breath seem to be your constant companion, no matter how often you clean your teeth and tongue? Some patients suffer from chronic halitosis, or bad breath, for a number of medical reasons.
Your halitosis may be caused by pungent foods in your diet, or could be the result of a pre-existing medical condition. We encourage you to meet with Dr. Goggins or Dr. Aguirre to learn if your bad breath problems are a result of one or more of the following factors:
- Poor dental hygiene habits
- Diet (e.g., onions or garlic)
- Dry mouth
- Gum disease
- Certain medications or illnesses
- Tobacco use
- Morning breath
- Tooth decay
Our prosthodontists can help you pinpoint the source of your halitosis and design an appropriate treatment plan. If your halitosis is caused by prescription medications, you may want to speak to your doctor about your options. Be sure to visit Denver Restorative Dentistry at least once every six months so that we can monitor your oral health and better detect any oral risks that could contribute to halitosis.
We welcome you to contact our practice today to learn more about halitosis treatments in Broomfield, Colorado, and make your appointment with our prosthodontists.
