The First Step to End Bad Breath Marietta, GA
Bad Breath

Bad breath can plague patients of any age, gender or ethnicity. The bad breath that returns each day despite what you eat, however, should be regarded as a dental health condition known as halitosis. While it may be uncomfortable for you to discuss your bad breath with your dentist, you should know that lasting relief could be the reward. At Pure Smiles Dentistry, we offer several halitosis treatments to help you regain confident breath throughout the day.

Recognizing the Culprit

Which bad breath treatment is right for you? The first step in treating your foul breath odor is identifying the cause. The culprit of halitosis is a primary indicator of which treatment will provide the most effective and lasting solution. If you are suffering from unpleasant smells coming from your mouth every time laugh, speak or yawn, ask yourself the following to determine which of the following is causing your chronic halitosis:

Do you regularly use tobacco? If you have a smoking habit, this is an undeniable culprit to your halitosis. Bad breath in smokers may also accompany stained teeth and gingivitis.

Are you eating food with a strong odor? Certain foods, like onions and garlic, are known for creating bad breath. These foods can get absorbed into the bloodstream and emit their smell through your breath for hours after you eat.

Is your mouth dry? A dry mouth is a common cause of halitosis, especially in aging adults who are taking medications that cause dry mouth. Without enough saliva, your mouth may be harboring more food particles, bacteria and plaque.

Do you have untreated gum disease or decay? Cavities and periodontal disease both develop when excess bacteria exists in the mouth. As bacteria breeds, it tends to produce a Sulphur compound that helps to create stinky breath.

Is there an infection in your body? If your bad breath doesn’t seem to have any other cause, it could indicate an infection somewhere in the body. Conditions like chronic sinusitis, bronchitis, diabetes, liver/kidney problems and respiratory tract infections can cause halitosis.

Ready to diagnose and treat your bad breath? Call Pure Smiles Dentistry. Based on the diagnosed cause of your condition, we can recommend an appropriate treatment plan. In most cases, a deep teeth cleaning and better oral care habits can put an end to halitosis.

  • Kim P.

    Dr Patel answered my call for practically in the middle of the night. He came and had no other appointments for the day! Just to help me. The facility was immaculate and him and his hygienist were so helpful. I wish I remembered her name. It had been a while since I had been to the dentist and they never made me feel judged. Great team of people. If you are looking for a dentist give Dr. P and his team a try you won't be disappointed! See u in 2 weeks Dr. P.!i

  • Lisa O.

    Hands down the best dentist I have found. I took all three of my kids and myself. This is a welcoming, child-friendly team. It is readily apparent how well this team works together to make every patient, no matter what age, feel comfortable. I appreciate these people so much. Thank you for being such an outstanding dentist team, Pure Smiles!

  • Carmelita Ch.-H.

    Doctor/Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Always make sure you feel comfortable. Pam is an excellent Hygienist. Office space is always clean and tidy. I would recommend this office as we have been going there for the past 12 years.

  • Hudson H.

    I usually HATE the dentist! I saw all these good reviews and was a bit skeptical, but after visiting this office I now know they’re all legit. Pure Smiles made me feel comfortable and was very considerate to me. I normally leave the dentist angry, this time however I was so pleased! Everyone was empathetic and went over and beyond to help me. Everything from scheduling to payment options, they cared. I actually want to floss now.

  • Michelle P.

    I only have positive things to say about Dr.Patel and the staff at Pure Smiles in Marietta. I was in bad shape with a wisdom tooth that needed to be removed. I was seen the same morning that I called, and everything was finished in under an hour. I received a check-up call that afternoon, which I felt was very thoughtful. I went back for an overall exam the following week, and I left their office feeling great about my future dental health. Do not hesitate to call Pure Smiles. The staff is kind, efficient, and up-to-date on dental advances.
