Halitosis Treatment

Halitosis Treatment Buford, GA

Halitosis Treatment

Do you avoid close encounters due to chronic bad breath that will not go away, even with brushing and mouthwash? Halitosis is severe bad breath that may be a symptom of other oral health issues. At Buford Family Dental, we understand how embarrassing this condition can be, but we also know that it should not be ignored. We can help you treat your bad breath and any underlying causes with general dentistry to help you feel more confident in social interactions and maintain your oral health.

Bad breath is usually caused by bacteria. Everyone gets bad breath from time to time, usually from eating or drinking certain substances. Onions, garlic and other strong foods can leave a foul odor, but usually dissipate when you brush your teeth or use mouthwash. However, some bad breath lingers, only masked by minty treatments. This can be a sign of a more serious oral health issue. Treat the cause and the halitosis may be treated as well.

Treatment for Bad Breath

The first step in treating halitosis is having a complete checkup and cleaning at our office. Our oral hygienist will clean your teeth and look for any signs of gum disease, a common cause of bad breath. If there is an infection in your gums, this can be treated and may relieve your bad breath.

If your gums are healthy, there could be other dental issues causing odor. Dr. Patel will check for any signs of tooth decay or infection in your teeth. An abscessed tooth or a large cavity could be causing your bad breath. Treating the dental issue will protect your smile and help you regain fresh breath for those close encounters.

You do not need to be embarrassed by halitosis. Contact Buford Family Dental today to schedule a checkup at our office and our dental team will help determine what is causing your bad breath and offer a treatment solution.

I chipped my tooth at 1:30pm. I called them at 2:20, and they had me in at 3:30pm. They close at 4:30. I was given the option to place a crown on my tooth that day, or make an appointment for another day. I chose to do it that day, and it was done with a smile! It was Dr. Patel’s birthday, AND he stayed past closing to assist me. The staff was very accommodating, pleasant, and knowledgeable about solutions to the problem. I highly recommend this office!

I would highly recommend this dentist office to anyone that I know. Dr. Patel took lots of time on my initial visit to answer all of the questions that I had and was very gentle and precise during my procedure. I also had a root canal done by Dr. Finot and it could not have gone any better as far as root canals go. You can tell that he has done countless root canals and the procedure is being conducted flawlessly. Thank you Buford Family Dental!

This place is awesome!! I took my teenage daughter for a root canal, and the dentist was so gentle, she fell asleep during the procedure. It’s a warm and welcoming environment, and everyone makes you feel right at home. I’m so glad I chose this place, and I would recommend Buford Family Dental to anyone.

Dr Patel takes pride in his craft! Everyone was thorough, kind, and no lectures! They took extra care to be sure I was comfortable and understood the treatment plan. I had minimal discomfort on the cleaning and fillings. We took breaks as needed and they were not shy with anesthetic! They were also on point with verifying my insurance so I knew exactly what was covered and what my cost would be. I'm so happy with the work I had done and would gladly recommend Dr. Patel and Sharon (hygienist) to anyone seeking a dentist who genuinely cares about his/her patients!
They truly have no idea the positive impact they have had on my long road to recovery. Thank You!!!

Buford Family Dental is the definition of perfection! I’ve been looking for a dentist for a couple of years now after being in Georgia and I’m glad I found BFD! Dr. Patel and his staff go above and beyond every visit. The office has been upgraded and refreshed since Dr. Patel and his staff have taken over. Very well trained and educated staff in the building. This is my go to Dentist from here on out! Thanks to all the staff at Buford Family Dental!

Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. They were able to get me an appointment same day for a dental emergency. They made sure I knew everything that eased going on. I will definitely return.

I was suffering from severe pain from a tooth that I failed to take care of, to the point that 800mg Ibuprofen wouldn’t even help. I went to another dentist first and came to Buford Family Dental for a second opinion. What separated them from the others was the transparency. They showed me pictures, x-rays and gave me a lot of useful information to soak in prior to deciding on a root canal. The procedure was smooth, pain free and so far, effective. I’ll be returning to have a permanent crown put in place.

I had 3 cavities and the dentist did a great job. Not only was the office clean but I was taken in immediately with no wait time. the dentist is very professional and knows what he's doing. I was in and out of the office in less than an hour. I highly recommend this dentistry.
