Sometimes, bad breath is just a result of what you eat and drink. The most effective way to deal with bad breath caused by food and drink is to brush and floss after every meal and snack. Maintaining this type of oral hygiene routine can help ensure fresh breath along with healthy teeth and gums. During your regularly scheduled dental checkups, Dr. Donald Wilcox will discuss how to best clean your teeth and gums with you. If bad breath has become a chronic issue for you, Dr. Wilcox will also discuss breath treatments during these appointments. Bad breath may be an indication of a serious oral health issue such as tooth infection or gum disease. If you suffer from chronic bad breath it is best to discuss the issue with Dr. Wilcox as soon as possible. Breath treatments offered by Dr. Wilcox include:
- Gum treatments
- Root canal
- Deep cleanings

The right options for you will depend on your specific needs, and this is best determined during your appointment with Dr. Wilcox.
