Surgery is Not Always the Answer!
Many patients have gone through sinus operations, tonsillectomies, digestive tract examinations and treatment M.R.I., X-Rays and other forms of treatment; all without any relief.
Worse yet many dentists and doctors shrug the problem away saying it is not a real problem or don't worry about it. This leaves the patient even more devastated and believe they have no where else to turn.
It is best for the halitosis patient to come to our office for a definitive diagnosis.
You can buy a number of mouthwashes over-the-counter that claim to eliminate bad breath. However, keep in mind that many of these mouthwashes generally provide only a temporary way to mask unpleasant mouth odor. There are, however, several antiseptic mouth-rinse products available that instead of simply masking breath odor, kill the germs that cause bad breath. Ask your dentist about which product is best for you.
