often times it is a symptom of underlying disease which needs
the earliest possible treatment.
We will analyze the source of your bad breath, measuring the
degree, and try to evaluate and solve your problem in a limited
number of visits. Using our new diagnostic instrument, the
Halimeter, we will be able to actually measure the Volatile
Sulfur Gases present in the mouth.These gases come from the
metabolic process of both bacterial and food debris, and are
the source of mouth odor.
also detect the presence of these gases with a device called
the Perio-Temp which measures the temperature of periodontal
(gum) pockets. An elevated reading can signal the source of
these odor-causing gases. A personal interview, oral cancer
exam, peridontal evaluation, intra-oral camera screening and
clinical exam are also used to properly diagnose your problem.
we have determined the degree and cause of the breath problem,
the treatment can take many forms. If medical problems are
found to be the underlying cause of bad breath, proper referral
will be made.
