Here’s What You Can Expect at Lakefront Family Dentistry
When You Come in for a Regular Teeth Cleaning

Putting a Stop to Foul Mouth Odors

People develop foul breath for several different reasons. Certain foods, alcohol, and cigarette smoke residue are to blame. Sometimes, fresh breath can be achieved by simply changing some eating or lifestyle habits.

The warm, moist environment of the mouth is an ideal place for bacteria to grow. Plaque and tartar build up on the teeth and around the gum line, which provides a great place for bacteria to harvest and wreak havoc.

Left alone, these infectious microorganisms will continue to grow and release foul-smelling gases in the mouth. If these bad odors persist, it’s best to consult with a registered dental hygienist to help identify and treat any underlying oral conditions. We have the best, most professionally trained dental hygienists in the area.

Dr. Hauser advises patients to schedule an exam and professional dental cleaning with our licensed hygienists every 6 months. During your appointment at Lakefront Family Dentistry, digital x-rays will be obtained and used to help accurately pinpoint any existing issues.

Lakefront Family Dentistry is equipped to provide families with leading edge technological dental solutions available today. Our skilled team is very experienced and has helped thousands of people achieve long-lasting, fresh breath.
