Keep Your Breath Fresh
Everybody gets bad breath from time to time. However, if you don’t make your regular dental checkups, you might end up with foul-smelling breath that you can’t get rid of.
This could be due to deposits of bacteria that you’re not reaching or can’t do anything about. They might be concealed under tartar growths. Tartar is hardened dental plaque, like rocks growing in your mouth. The bacteria growing under them or other parts of your mouth where oxygen doesn’t reach smell especially bad. Mouthwash won’t help you get rid of this smell.
During your cleaning, we will remove these growths and any smelly bacteria. Once we’ve removed the tartar, you will be able to keep your mouth clean and your breath fresh.
Sometimes, though, bad breath is a sign of a different oral health problem, such as gum disease or an infected tooth, that might need dedicated care.
