Services

We Equip You to Battle Halitosis

At Hunt Family Dentistry, we advocate for at-home care as much as we do for in-office care. We can provide you with bad breath remedies and everyday practices that can make a significant difference in freshening your breath. For instance, we can help you narrow down the toothpaste and mouthwash options and even give you dietary suggestions. If we suspect you aren’t brushing or flossing effectively, our dentist and hygienists offer tips and techniques that you can easily fit into your lifestyle and schedule. 

Our staff can also schedule your biannual checkups and cleanings in advance. These exams are essential in preventing halitosis or catching it when it’s a nuisance, not a problem. This also gives us a chance to track your oral health and determine if your chronic bad breath is a sign of a condition that needs more thorough attention. 

No More Bad Breath Band-Aids: Scaling and Root Planing (SRP)

In some cases, mouthwashes and breath mints are just masking bad breath, not treating it. In that case, we offer effective halitosis treatment that addresses underlying bad breath causes. Often that cause is bacteria and plaque that have in hidden pockets and grooves in your teeth and gums. This can eventually cause gum disease, a sign of which is regular bad breath. 

A deep dental cleaning roots out bacteria, plaque, and tartar with a process called scaling and root planing (SRP). During the scaling part of the treatment, we use specialized dental tools to meticulously remove these harmful substances from the tooth surfaces and beneath the gums. Following that, root planing smooths out the roots of your teeth, helping your gums reattach and heal more effectively. This process not only gets rid of bad breath permanently but also sets a strong foundation for healthier gums, preventing periodontal diseases.
