Halitosis Treatment

Are you concerned about chronic bad breath? Halitosis can be embarrassing, but it can also be an indicator that there are oral health issues causing the odor on your breath. When brushing, flossing and mouthwashes do not seem to control bad breath, it is time to see a dentist. Our team at Gold Hill Dentistry can help you determine the cause of your halitosis and get the dental treatment you need to control bad mouth odors.

Often, halitosis is caused by an oral health issue. While there are some internal health problems that can lead to bad breath, the first place to check is the teeth and gums. A decayed or infected tooth can emit bad odors that will not dissipate with regular oral hygiene. Gum or periodontal disease can also cause unpleasant odor due to the bacterial infection in your mouth. A thorough gum and oral exam can identify any issues that could be causing your bad breath and a treatment plan can be devised to fix your oral health and halitosis problems.

Treatment for Bad Breath

If there are any tooth or gum issues, treating these problems is the first step to ridding yourself of bad breath. Often, a thorough dental cleaning is all that is needed to help reduce odor from bacteria trapped between teeth or under tartar accumulation. Any decay can be removed and if there are more serious infection problems, treatment can be done to address these issues. An infected tooth can undergo root canal therapy to remove infected tooth material, or infected gums can be treated with periodontal therapy.

If you have halitosis, it is time to get a checkup and cleaning to help determine if you have dental problems causing your bad breath. Contact our office in Fort Mill to schedule your exam to start treatment for your bad breath.

"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
