No one wants to have bad breath. It is embarrassing and unpleasant. The foods you regularly consume affect the odor of your breath but continuing bad breath can be an indication of another oral problem.
Brushing and flossing every day helps with this issue, but if you have dry mouth, are on a strict diet, or take certain medications you may be at higher risk of dry mouth and bad breath.
Your saliva cleans your mouth and naturally removes lodged food particles that can lead to bad breath. Medications, smoking, health conditions, and poorly-functioning salivary glands can contribute to bad breath. In some cases, the cause of ongoing bad breath is gum disease or tooth decay.
It is important that we examine your teeth and gums to help you regain your confidence and become free of the problem. An oral exam will reveal if you are developing gum disease or have tooth decay. If this is not the source, we can offer advice and guidance to help you.
The primary reasons for considering an All-on-4 are obvious. You will regain the functional benefits of natural teeth and improve your general oral health. You will regain a healthy-looking, natural smile and the confidence and ease with others that comes with that.
Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, you’re far from alone. It has been estimated that 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. A single tooth implant offers you the opportunity to replace a missing tooth with a permanent, fixed tooth that looks and functions exactly like a natural tooth. You’ll be able to care for your implant in the same way as you care for your other teeth.
