Halitosis Treatment in Denver, CO

Dealing with bad breath can be embarrassing and uncomfortable, but at Smile Studio Dental, we understand the challenges and offer targeted solutions to combat halitosis.

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, can be caused by various factors, including dietary habits, oral hygiene practices, and certain health conditions. Our dedicated team provides thorough assessments to identify the root cause of your halitosis, and we offer customized treatment plans that include professional cleanings and specialized products.

It is estimated that millions of people worldwide suffer from chronic bad breath or halitosis. This condition can be a source of embarrassment and anxiety, but fortunately, it can be easily remedied.

Halitosis is caused by oral bacteria that remain trapped in your mouth for an extended period of time. The key to managing this condition is to address the root cause – eliminating the source of the odor. Most over-the-counter remedies, such as mouthwash, mints, and gum, only provide temporary relief by masking the problem.

Smile Studio Dental offers professional cleaning and oral cleanse treatments that can reach crevices that are not typically accessible through regular brushing and flossing. In some cases, a deep cleaning procedure involving scaling and root planing may be necessary to eliminate bacteria trapped below the gum line. Additionally, we can perform tongue scraping to address any issues with odor caused by the tongue.

  • Why does my breath smell bad even after brushing?

    Bad breath can persist despite regular brushing and flossing due to various factors:

    Common causes of bad breath include:

    • Inadequate Oral Hygiene: Skipping brushing or flossing allows food particles to accumulate, promoting bacterial growth in the mouth.
    • Dietary Choices: Foods like garlic, onions, coffee, and alcohol can leave lingering odors in the mouth.
    • Dry Mouth: Reduced saliva flow, often caused by certain medications or medical conditions, can contribute to bad breath.
    • Tobacco Use: Smoking and other tobacco products not only lead to bad breath but also increase the risk of oral health problems.
    • Underlying Medical Conditions: Sinus infections, throat infections, respiratory issues, diabetes, and certain liver or kidney diseases can all manifest as bad breath.

    At Smile Studio Dental, we offer personalized assessments to pinpoint the specific causes of bad breath and provide tailored treatments to address the symptoms and underlying issues.


  • Does smoking cause bad breath?

    Yes, smoking is a common cause of bad breath. When you smoke, the chemicals in tobacco linger in your mouth, throat, and lungs, leaving a distinct odor that can be difficult to mask. Additionally, smoking reduces saliva production, which normally helps cleanse the mouth and neutralize odor-causing bacteria. As a result, smokers often experience persistent bad breath, along with an increased risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and other oral health issues. Quitting smoking is not only beneficial for your breath but also for your overall health and well-being.

  • Can a dentist get rid of bad breath?

    While dentists can’t eliminate bad breath (Halitosis) permanently, they play a crucial role in managing and improving it through dental care and treatment.

    • Dentists perform thorough cleanings to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria.
    • We identify and treat dental issues like gum disease and tooth decay, which can cause bad breath.
    • Dentists offer guidance on proper oral hygiene practices to maintain fresh breath.
    • We may recommend specific oral care products or mouth rinses.
    • Dentists can work with other healthcare professionals to address underlying health issues linked to bad breath.
