Halitosis Treatment

Halitosis Treatment in Wasilla

Halitosis, or bad breath, may not seem important until it becomes chronic. Many people are not even aware they have the problem. In fact, over 50 million people in this country have halitosis. Bad breath affects the people around you and can have an adverse effect on your social life.

Have you noticed that fewer people want to engage you in conversation? People may begin to back up when you talk to them. While someone’s reaction to bad breath may seem somewhat humorous, the fact is, when you need to represent your company or are in public settings, halitosis can be a serious obstacle. The good news is, there are effective general dentistry treatments available.

Halitosis can be caused by a number of factors. The most obvious reason is lack of good oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing your teeth will keep your mouth feeling and smelling fresh. Proper care of your teeth and gums eliminates the oral bacteria that cause breath odor. However, if you practice good oral hygiene and still have bad breath, decaying teeth could be the problem. Gum disease and gastric problems can also result in bad breath.

Proteins in the mouth are broken down by bacteria and this reaction causes the odor. The by-products of this reaction are large amounts of Sulphur compounds which build up on the back of the tongue. Sometimes people brush their tongues or use tongue scrapers to keep the buildup from occurring.

Treatment options depend on the cause of your halitosis. Good oral hygiene eliminates most minor problems with bad breath. Using a quality mouthwash or toothpaste can also help. If the problem persists, having your mouth examined for other causes is the next step. You may have undiagnosed dental problems. If there does not seem to be a cause relating to oral issues, you will be advised to contact your primary care physician. Your problem may originate from other issues, such as gastric problems. Contact Lane Family Dental today to schedule an appointment regarding our treatment options for halitosis.

About a year or so ago I discovered Lane Dental. Due to circumstances in my life I hadn’t been to a dentist in a really long time. They were very caring and kind. Since then I’ve had some teeth removed and am currently having a partial made. They have been patiently working with me and my insurance. Asia has been wonderful to work with for my scheduling and Dr. lane has been so kind and gentle. His assistants have been a real pleasure also. Thank you to the entire staff 🤗

Finally, a dentist I look forward to coming to. Great staff, lovely warm waiting area. Dr.Lane is gentle, kind and professional. He explains each process so you know what he is doing. My teeth look great after he fixed some chips in my front teeth.I highly recommend Lane Family Dentistry.

The best dentist I’ve had in my 60 years. Absolutely impeccably clean facilities. New facilities. The latest techniques and strategies to provide excellent dental care. And most of all the least amount of pain I’ve ever felt at the dentist.

Fantastic customer service! Everybody there is very friendly and easy to talk to. They explained everything that was going on with my teeth, provided a plan to get them back in good shape, and cleaned em up real nice. It may have been a while since my last trip to a dentist, but I don't remember the visits being so relaxing.

Great atmosphere, staff, and dentist. I had a bad experience the last time I went to the dentist so I was petrified to go in but this place was totally relieving. Me and my family will always be coming here with our dental needs.

My husband and I recently found Lane Family Dental. We are both so pleased with their professionalism, modern equipment and outstanding care. The people at the front and Dr. Lane's dental assistant are bright, cheeful and professional as well. Living in Talkeetna we are so pleased they have two offices, one being in Willow which is quite convenient. Thank you Lane Family Dental for providing such great care to the Mat-Su Valley.
