Halitosis Treatment Elk Grove, CA

Halitosis Treatment

Chronic bad breath is embarrassing and can make you feel less confident. It can also be a sign of a more serious dental or health issue. If you have chronic bad breath, or halitosis, it is important to determine the cause. At Laguna West Dental Care, we offer diagnosis and treatment options for halitosis to help control bad breath and uncover underlying dental issues causing the odor.

Bad breath can often be caused by hidden dental or oral health problems. Bacteria can cause odor when abundant in tooth decay or gum disease. Accumulated tartar can harbor bacteria that cause gingivitis or gum disease. Not only can this affect your oral health, but it can put you at risk for other health conditions and cause bad breath. Decayed teeth or tooth infections can also be the source of bad breath. Undergoing a comprehensive dental exam can identify possible oral health issues that could be impacting your smile as well as creating an unpleasant odor.

Treatment for Bad Breath

Often, just fixing dental issues successfully treats bad breath. Removing tooth decay, treating gingivitis or undergoing a root canal for a tooth infection are common remedies for treating the symptom of bad breath. If a dental issue is not the cause of your halitosis, our dentist can recommend other options to help minimize odor. We may refer you to a physician to ensure there are not any internal causes. For many patients, completing the necessary dental work is all that is needed to stop chronic bad breath and improve oral health.

You do not need to live with embarrassing bad breath. Contact our office in Elk Grove to schedule a checkup. Our dental team can help identify and treat the causes of most bad breath issues.

Suzanne B.

As I was walking to my car after my appointment I thought, I sure am happy I come here. I get warm friendly service and gentle, thorough care throughout my visit. Dr. Chan and his staff are the best.

Jennifer B.

We've been so very happy with Dr. You and his staff since we moved to Sacramento in 1985! We've followed him to the current location in Laguna...he and his staff take such good care of all our dental needs. I have no hesitation in recommending their services!

Stephanie O.

In my 65 years on the planet, and hundreds of hours in former dentists' offices, Dr. You and his staff are by far the best I've ever encountered. My very recent crown replacement was 100 percent pain free! All phases of treatment, from removal of the old crown, mold taking and making, to the permanent placement with my brand new well-matched molar, was seamless. I respect and applaud Laguna West Dental Care for taking such talented care of me.

Janet S.

Since retiring, I drive and hour and a half each way to continue to see Dr. You and his entire staff ... and I hate to drive. No better dentist and hygenists in Sacramento and I have tried others over the years. Thank you for a great experience each and every time Laguna West!

Norman H.

In my 50+ years, I've probably had 7 to 8 dentists and have had my share of bad experiences that made me fearful of going to the dentist. But, after switching to Dr. Chan in 1991, I really couldn't be happier and don't dread dental appointments anymore. Dr. Chan is gentle and exceptionally good at giving shots that I can barely feel. He even calls me in the evening after every procedure to make sure I'm doing okay. The staff is friendly and caring and the facilities are nice. Highly recommended.

Carol D.

We've been patients of Dr. You and Dr. Chan since my son was in kindergarten - now a County employee. Everyone on the staff is great. I had one bad experience with a dentist referred by my insurance co. - I'd NEVER see a dentist again without a personal referral. Consider this mine to you -- Laguna West is an excellent choice!
