Halitosis & Fresh Breath Confidence in San Diego
Bad breath isn't just a social concern—it's often a sign of underlying dental issues. Delve into the root causes, and you'll find that bad breath often lurks in deep crevices on the tongue and within periodontal pockets in the tissue and bone. While occasional bad breath is common, persistent bad breath needs attention, and our Dental Office in San Diego offers effective solutions.
Effective Treatments for Chronic Bad Breath
Many aren't aware, but lasting fresh breath is within reach. Dr. Taís Trevelin and the team at our Dental Office specialize in addressing chronic bad breath through thorough examinations and regular cleanings. These aren't just standard cleanings—our professionals meticulously scrape the tongue, utilize antibacterial gels to counteract odor-causing bacteria, and scale teeth to eliminate hardened plaque and tartar below the gumline. By opting for these treatments, you're not only combatting bad breath but also actively reducing your risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
Tips for Maintaining Fresh Breath at Home
Achieving fresh breath doesn't end at the dentist's chair. Maintain that renewed confidence by:
- Making tongue scraping a staple in your daily oral care.
- Using an antibacterial toothpaste regularly.
- Incorporating antibacterial mouth rinses and tongue gels into your routine.
- Freshening up on-the-go with chewing gums and mints.
When choosing products, seek out natural antibacterial agents like thymol and eucalyptus. They help in sustaining that fresh breath for extended periods. Additionally, products containing odor neutralizers such as zinc chloride can be a great addition.
I often suggest that my patients consider using products containing xylitol for gums and mints, as well as specialized toothpastes such as Prevident, to enhance their oral health and maintain fresh breath.

Other Sources of Bad Breath
Bad breath can sometimes be traced back to sources beyond the mouth, such as the stomach or gut. One potential culprit is Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). If you often experience heartburn or reflux, especially after consuming certain foods like dairy or spicy dishes, it might be an indication that GERD is affecting your digestive system. This condition can lead to sour-smelling acids traveling up the esophagus, imparting a gaseous odor to your breath. It's crucial to be well-informed and accurate when addressing these concerns. If we determine that the root cause is related to the digestive system, we'll refer you to the appropriate specialist. Depending on the specific issue, you might be referred to an internist or a gastroenterologist, both of whom specialize in diagnosing, treating, and preventing digestive system diseases.
