Concerned young woman covering her mouth due to bad breath.

No one wants to find out they have bad breath that offends other people. While everyone can experience occasional bad breath from the foods or beverages we consume, a constant problem is called chronic bad breath, or halitosis. There are many possible causes of halitosis, including health problems, but one of the most likely sources is your teeth and gums. Our dental team at SmileBuilders, Inc. can help determine the cause of bad breath and provide halitosis treatment at our offices in Canton, Batesville, Byram, and Lucedale, MS.

Most bad odors coming from the mouth are caused by bacteria. While there are always bacteria in the mouth, if they are causing an infection or decay, a powerful odor can be released. Normal bad breath from food is usually eliminated with thorough brushing and flossing to remove food particles. However, halitosis lingers even after you perform oral hygiene because the source is usually in the gums or teeth and not removable.

Treatment for Bad Breath

To remedy chronic bad breath, the first step is to determine the cause. Our dental team can perform a thorough dental exam to identify any oral health issues that may be causing bad odor. Gingivitis or gum disease is a common cause of bad breath. A thorough dental cleaning can often help resolve halitosis from a gum infection. Other possible dental issues that could be linked to halitosis include decay and tooth infections or abscesses. We can remove decay or treat an infected tooth with root canal therapy, fixing your teeth and performing treatment for bad breath all in one.

If you are embarrassed by chronic bad breath, schedule a checkup and cleaning at our offices in Canton, Batesville, Byram, and Lucedale. You may have a dental issue that is causing your halitosis. Our dental practice accepts most major dental plans that cover routine checkups and cleanings. Contact our dental practice today to book your appointment.

What our happy patients say see all reviews

  • 150% for sure. Dr. Preston Cobbler one of the best dentists I've gone to in my years of life. He is great man, personally that can't be of as a pretender. I didn't know he had got started in my mouth, I had a broken tooth to the root, I didn't know he had started the work, he had finished the work in my mouth. He will be my dentist for the duration of my life!! I earnestly would rate him a 10 on the work in my mouth. Thanks Dr Cobbler for your kindness, work ability, knowledge, and sense of feeling for your patients pain.
