What is Halitosis?
Halitosis is a medical condition characterized by persistent bad breath. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor oral hygiene, certain foods, dry mouth, and certain medical conditions. The most common cause of halitosis is the buildup of bacteria on the tongue and in the back of the throat. These bacteria produce volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) that cause the unpleasant odor associated with bad breath.
Bad breath can be a source of embarrassment and can affect a person’s confidence and social interactions. It’s important to note that bad breath is not only a cosmetic issue, but it can also be a sign of an underlying oral health problem. For example, it can be a sign of gum disease, cavities, or even a more serious condition such as diabetes or acid reflux.
At Lakeside Dental Care, we understand that bad breath can be a source of embarrassment and we’re here to help. Our team of experienced dentists is dedicated to providing the highest level of care to our patients and ensuring that every halitosis treatment is performed with the utmost precision and care.

The treatment may include a combination of teeth cleaning, scaling, and polishing, along with oral hygiene instruction, and lifestyle changes that may be necessary to prevent bad breath.
