Don’t let your halitosis persist before you find treatment. Drs. Monroe is dedicated to helping patients achieve a fresher, healthier smile. Our Pinehurst dental office offers a complete range of services to help patients get the treatment they need. In order to find the right solution, Drs. Monroe will need to determine if your halitosis is caused by any of these dental issues:
- Tooth Decay: Tooth decay is caused by bacteria that eat away at the tooth. If tooth decay is not properly treated, it can cause tooth loss, infection, cavities, and halitosis. Drs. Monroe can examine your teeth to determine if you are suffering from tooth decay. Our Pinehurst dental office offers comprehensive treatment to help you achieve a healthier smile.
- Dry Mouth: Dry mouth occurs when the mouth isn’t producing the appropriate amount of saliva. Dry mouth may be caused by dehydration, medication, and even tobacco use. With a dry mouth, you may notice persistent bad breath, a change in taste when eating, dry throat, or difficulty swallowing. It is important to speak with Drs. Monroe if you are noticing you have dry mouth so that they can provide a solution. If your dry mouth is linked to your medication, they may work in collaboration with your doctor to get you the treatment you need.
- Gum Disease: Gum disease is an infection of the gum tissue. Over time, the gums will recede from teeth, creating pockets where bacteria can live. This bacteria may cause a foul odor in the mouth. Some patients with gum disease may not notice any symptoms, so it is important to get your teeth checked at least twice a year. Untreated gum disease can lead to tooth loss, tooth sensitivity, and other complex dental issues. We offer periodontal therapy services for patients with gum disease.
