Halitosis or bad breath negatively affects both the psychological and social well-being of a person. There are instances that one who suffers from halitosis experiences shame and embarrassment due to bullying and name-calling. These stigmatizing effect of halitosis deteriorates the soul of a person, making them have inferior confidence. For sure, no one wants to be in that position just because they have bad breath.

We at Liberty Lake Smile Source care about our patients’ oral health and wellness, that is why we want to provide them the solutions to their bad breath problems. With our Halitosis Treatment procedure, one can achieve a fresher breath! Halitosis has many causes. Poor oral hygiene, dry mouth, gum disease, and other mouth infections are some of the factors which contribute to halitosis. Our team carefully assesses the cause of the patients’ halitosis and provide a reliable treatment right away.

Dry mouth is the primary culprit of halitosis or bad breath. This condition is called xerostomia, a decrease in the production of saliva. Dry mouth affects all people but is more prevalent in women. People experience dry mouth because of certain reasons such as dehydration, health conditions, smoking and alcohol intake, and taking drug medications. Since the decrease in saliva is the main reason why dry mouth takes place, it is essential to know the role of saliva production in the overall oral health of the person. First, saliva gets rid of ulcers and sores in the mouth by serving as a lubricant that provides comfort and protection to the oral tissues. Second, sufficient saliva in the mouth can help fight tooth decay, infections, and fungi by neutralizing acids. Lastly, saliva enables the person to taste foods and digest it after. To improve saliva production, here are some tips to try:

  • Chew sugar-free gums as it stimulates the salivary gland to generate more saliva.
  • Avoid drinking too much alcohol as it dries the mouth.
  • Limit rinsing the mouth with the mouthwash that has alcohol content.
  • Drink a lot of water to moisten the mouth.

An effective way of combating bad breath caused by dry mouth is by taking plenty of water regularly. The water will not only help the mouth to become moist but will also be useful in flushing bad bacterias in the mouth that causes an unpleasant smell. It also prevents food particles and tooth decays which leads to bad breath.

Dry mouth is also an indication that one must set an appointment with the dentist; and if it causes halitosis already, be sure to seek dental halitosis treatment eagerly.

If you are suffering from bad breath, schedule your Halitosis Treatment in Liberty Lake under our General Dentistry Services for diagnosis & treatment.

Great location, great people, and all around a great dentist. I recently transferred to their office due to location, and I’m very impressed with everything they have to offer. From the receptionist, to the hygienist, and the dentist are all super friendly and very professional.

I absolutely love the team at Liberty Lake Smile Source.I've been seeing Dr. Tim Casey for over 5 years and you won't find someone who is more attentive, caring and professional. We only see each other a couple times a year and he always checks in on how my family and I are doing.All of the staff are top-notch and I would 100% recommend this team to anyone who asks.

From start to finish, a great experience.Patty had a warm and welcoming smile to get me checked in (and out). I met with Heather (with a little help from Elizabeth) who were fantastic at explaining the whole process and making sure to breakdown jargon and let me know the findings of my cleaning. I got to watch some silly and funny animal tv on the ceiling which had some great ways to make me smile during the visit. They took great X-rays and pictures of my teeth to ensure all aspects of my dental care were considered. Dr. Macall was personable while also professional and informative. Would 10/10 recommend the entire process with this group. Thank you for your great care and even though it’s the dentist office, I look forward to returning.

The staff was very friendly. Office clean and welcoming. Hygienist was extremely knowledgeable and gentle. Dr Casey explained all scenarios to me and what work was needed first. I liked the efficiency of all his staff and I think it was my best experience with any dentist.

Recently moved here from Chicago, and a family member recommended Liberty Lake Smile. It took a brief and easy website visit and a follow-up call from them, and I had an appointment right away! I was impressed at how nice and professional the entire staff was, and it was apparent they really did care, and know their business! I was surprised at how thorough my initial visit and assessment actually was. Ann, the Hygienist and Dr. Casey demonstrated their competence, experience and professionalism, and left me with a feeling of confidence that they would provide excellent care! Moreover, they came up with a detailed plan to map out the course of action. I would happily recommend Liberty Lake Smile for your dental needs.
