Halitosis Treatment

Your oral health is a critical part of your overall well-being. And, if you have halitosis, or bad breath, it can have an impact on your self-esteem and quality of life. Fortunately, we have a variety of treatment options available to help you. 

Our team at Pine Creek Dental understands the impact halitosis can have on your everyday life. We offer several treatment options in our Colorado Springs office that can help you address the root cause of halitosis and restore your self-confidence. 

We are here to listen to you with compassion, and we will keep you as comfortable as possible as we address the root cause of this issue. Learn more about halitosis below, and give us a call to schedule an appointment. 

Most Common Signs of Halitosis

Bad breath is the first sign of halitosis, but there are other common symptoms as well. A few problems you might notice include: 

  • Dry, sticky mouth
  • Post-nasal drip
  • White coating on your tongue
  • Plaque buildup on your teeth
  • Sour, bitter taste

The three leading causes of halitosis are poor dental hygiene, tobacco use, and leftover food particles in your teeth. Dr. Thompson will help pinpoint the contributing factors that may cause this condition and offer solutions to help when you come into our office for care.

How  To Effectively Treat Halitosis

Halitosis treatment starts with a thorough exam and dental cleaning services. We can remove plaque and check for teeth and gum issues that might cause bad breath.

During this visit, you’ll have a chance to ask questions and receive guidance on how to keep halitosis at bay, such as:

  • Using all the best brushing and flossing practices
  • Brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day
  • Rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash once a day
  • Changing your toothbrush every three months
  • Avoiding the use of tobacco products
  • Changing your daily diet to eliminate excess sugar
  • Drinking more water to thin mucus and eliminate dry mouth
  • Chewing sugar-free gum to keep your mouth from getting dry

Be sure to schedule regular teeth cleanings and dental exams every six months. The Pine Creek Dental team is ready to help you find the cause of your halitosis and provide the best treatment to fit your needs.

I have been going to Pine Creek Dental for years. The staff is amazing! They are great at explaining everything as they go. I am so glad I found this place after my previous dentist retired. I will not go anywhere else.


The staff was very friendly and kept me at ease during the entire procedure. We even got to laugh and joke a few times. Love this practice and HIGHLY recommend having any dental work done here!
