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.

The staff at Gold Hill Dentistry is wonderful. They are polite, professional and helpful I have a history of working as both a dental assistant and hygienist in another state.

I highly recommend this dental practice. The staff are gracious, helpful, courteous and accommodating. Dr. Sagunarthy is a wonderful dentist. This is from someone who has always suffered with dental and gum issues. He is current on dental information, kind, gentle and professional! I am so happy to have found this practice!

Richard DeCristo

Dr. Sagunarthy is one of if not the best dentist I ever went to. He recently replaced a crown that was botched by another dentist and the procedure was done perfectly and painlessly. I first went to Gold Hill Dentistry for a second opinion on four crowns and maybe a root canal I needed asap from another dentist in Fort Mill. As it turned out I needed the crown replacement and only one other at a later date. That’s about $6000.00 I saved leaving this OTHER FORT MILL DENTIST. In addition to this wonderful dentist, the total staff is outstanding.

Midge Zimmerman

I have dental anxiety. I dreaded locating a dentist after recently moving to the area. I had gone to another dentist in the area but quickly changed to Gold Hill Denistry. Dr. Sagarnathy and staff are always kind, gentle and concerned with my well being. They also do a really good dental work. Other than routine work, I have had an implant, and chipped tooth repaired, all are doing well.
