Bad Breath Treatment in West Perth

Halitosis or bad breath is embarrassing and, for some, may also cause anxiety. This is one of the reasons why mouthwashes, mints, gums, and similar products are available in plenty. However, all these products are just going to address the problem temporarily. These products are temporary measures that don’t treat the problem at its core.
Health conditions, oral habits, and certain foods and beverages are the main causes of bad breath. For some, bad breath can go away by following proper dental care, but for some, other dental treatments will be required to treat the condition.

Treatment of Dental Issues

If you are suffering from other oral issues such as periodontitis, then our dentist will treat you for gum disease. This disease causes the gums to move away from the teeth leaving open pockets that allow bacteria to accumulate in them. It is these bacteria that cause odour and bad breath. If required, tooth restoration may be performed. Other treatments may include replacement or new placement of filling or crown etc.
