Halitosis, breath odor, morning breath or bad breath are all similar terms used in dentistry to describe a markedly obnoxious odor that is exhaled on the breath of individuals. Though it is not a serious health condition, can adversely affect our interpersonal relationships.
We are quite familiar with the fact that the consumption of certain foods like onions and garlic can affect our breath. This happens because these types of foods are mainly absorbed by the bloodstream and then it is transferred to our lungs, thus we exhale bad breath. However, the bad breath that is caused due to the consumption of certain Foods is temporary and it is eliminated after a few hours. But the bad breath that is caused due to tobacco products, smoking, periodontal disease, improper cleaning of dentures and poor oral health need immediate medical attention as bad breath caused due to these reasons may cause further damage to your oral health. Bad breath that is caused due to above mentioned reasons may adversely affect the bloodstream, lungs and stomach.
We at Dr. Ragi Chandrika's dentistry are well equipped with the latest methods and products like breath Rx treatment, to treat patients with bad breath. We first find out the root cause of bad breath and offer treatment accordingly.

If your odor is due to gum disease, then we will first treat the disease and make your oral health better to stop bad breath problem.
If the bad breath is exhaled due to gum disease, then immediate medical attention is required. In gum disease, the gums tissues have pulled away from the teeth and deep pockets are formed where odor-causing bacteria is accumulated. It requires professional cleaning to remove the bacteria and to treat the gum disease. Sometimes the dentists may also ask you to replace faulty tooth restorations because it can be a breeding ground of odor-causing bacteria.
So, if you are suffering from the problem of bad breath, then we at Dr. Ragi Chandrika's dentistry can offer you breathe treatment to eliminate the odor-causing bacteria permanently and offer you new confidence. Sometimes, the food debris and oral bacteria produce unstable sulfur compounds due to which the person exhales bad breath. Fortunately, it can be treated at our multi-specialty dental clinic. Besides, bad breath treatment we also offer an oral health plan that includes tongue cleaning, daily flossing, regular professional cleanings, etc. All these are necessary to maintain better oral health and to prevent bad breath in future.
