Bad breath or halitosis or oral malodor’s treatment can be tricky sometimes. First we have to find out the reason causing bad breath.

Dental measures for treatment of Bad breath?
Mouth rinses and toothpaste: If your bad breath is due to a buildup of bacteria (plaque) on your teeth, We recommend a mouth rinse that kills the bacteria. We may also recommend toothpaste that contains an antibacterial agent to kill the bacteria that cause plaque buildup.
Treatment of dental disease: Gum disease can cause gums to pull away from your teeth, leaving deep pockets that fill with odor-causing bacteria. Sometimes only professional cleaning removes these bacteria. We also recommend replacing faulty tooth restorations, a breeding ground for bacteria.
