Bad Breath Treatment In Blackburn

Bad breath, medically known as halitosis, can be a significant source of embarrassment. And while you can try over-the-counter remedies, they’re simply symptom cover-ups that hardly address the root cause of the problem. What if chronic bad breath could be a thing of your past? Focus Dental Group can help. Our highly qualified specialists bring years of experience treating halitosis using advanced therapies and the best quality products to achieve the best results for our Blackburn North clients. Contact us today for a custom halitosis treatment plan that will restore your natural fresh breath and confidence – without breaking your pockets.

What Causes Bad Breath?

Cause of bad breath range from poor lifestyle choices to poor oral hygiene.

Food particles trapped between the teeth provide a plentiful supply of sulphur compounds that feed anaerobic bacteria. When the bacteria start to break down protein, smelly volatile sulphur compounds are released from your mouth. It is important to brush thoroughly after every meal, especially if you consume foods high in protein or carbohydrates. Tobacco doesn’t just stain your teeth and deteriorate the lungs. It also causes halitosis in two ways:
  • Chemicals found in cigarettes stick to the tongue, gums, teeth, and the sides of the cheek, producing foul odours
  • Smoking dries out your mouth, preventing saliva from doing its job as a natural mouth cleanser.
Bad breath can be a symptom of a more serious medical condition. The list includes mouth infections (including abscessed tooth), sinusitis, gut changes and issues, and metabolic disorders (e.g. diabetes and liver failure). Other potential culprits for chronic bad breath include certain medications, crash diets, dry mouth, and aspiration pneumonia. Most of the above factors can be misdiagnosed and left unaddressed. At Focus Dental Group, our vast experience and knowledge coupled with state-of-the-art diagnosis tools suffice to uncover and address the exact cause of your dental condition.

Bad Breath Diagnosis

What can you expect from a visit to a bad breath clinic in Blackburn, VIC, Australia? Our dentist starts with a thorough assessment of your condition. Expect to provide information about your brushing and flossing routine, diet, allergies/diseases, and medications. We’d also like to know when the breath problem started.





Halitosis Treatment Options

Based on our evaluation and findings, our dentist will build a treatment program customised to the underlying cause of your problem. A prominent treatment option for bad breath in Blackburn North, Victoria, is deep dental cleaning. That includes scaling teeth of all calculus buildup. Sometimes, bad breath can be traced back to an oral condition such as an abscessed tooth. In that case, treating the disease should resolve the mouth odour issue. If we suspect an underlying medical condition is behind the bad breath, we will be happy to recommend a reputable primary care doctor for further diagnosis. Feel free to consult with our experienced dentist for more on treating and managing bad breath. We also offer teeth whitening, invisalign treatment, kid dentistry, dental implant, and more.

FAQ

At Focus Dental Group, we advise our customers to consider the following dental best practices for halitosis prevention:
  • Floss at least once and brush at least twice daily
  • Replace your toothbrush when worn
  • Make tongue scraping part of your daily oral care routine
  • Drink plenty of water, chew sugarless gum, and suck sugarless candy to keep your mouth consistently moist
  • Restrain from harmful oral habits, including smoking
  • Regular checkups with your dentist to keep up with your oral health
Regular, over-the-counter mouthwash only masks mouth odour for a while. The cause of bad breath needs to be determined and treated in order to ensure that bad breath is solved.
Does your mouth odour stink even after brushing and flossing? That could indicate tooth decay, inflamed gum, metabolic condition, dental caries, or ill-fitting implant, bridge, crown, or veneer. Visiting a reputable dentist can help resolve the mystery.
Here’s how to test for mouth odour on your own:
  • Lick your wrist and sniff it after a few seconds
  • Smell the air left behind after breathing into a cupped hand
  • Scrape your tongue’s surface using a toothbrush or tongue scraper, then smell the tool
  • Check if you can experience a bad taste in your mouth hours after a meal
The cost of treating bad breath varies with the condition’s cause and severity. At Focus Dental Group, our dentists analyse the assessment findings, build a custom treatment for you, and discuss the fee upfront. Only after your approval can we proceed to the next steps.
