Metro Detroit, Michigan (PRWEB) August 20, 2014
The awkward, distracting situation of having a close conversation with somebody who has a foul smelling mouth is something most people have experienced at one point or another. Bad breath can be the ultimate deal breaker and can be unpleasant for both the person who has it and for the person on the receiving end of it. Metro Detroit periodontist Dr. Joseph Nemeth offers a program proven to eliminate chronic bad breath for good.
Bad breath is a significant concern for a great number of people and it can affect many areas of their lives. People with halitosis often shy away from social situations, can experience problems in their romantic relationships, and may even lack the confidence to progress in their professional careers.
Bad breath can be caused by a number of factors including diet, poor dental hygiene, smoking, the use of certain medications, underlying disease or illness, etc. While many people develop bad breath after a meal filled with garlic or spice, halitosis can also be a chronic condition that doesn’t go away. In a large majority of cases, chronic bad breath is caused by bacteria in the mouth which often lives under layers of mucus on the back of the tongue.
With a success rate of over 98%, Dr. Nemeth uses a specialized program to knock out bad breath permanently. The first step in the bad breath treatment is to determine if halitosis exists and the second step is to identify the source of it.
A simple test can confirm that bad breath does in fact exist in a person’s mouth and what the cause of it is. If it is confirmed that oral bacteria is the culprit, Dr. Nemeth can treat it painlessly and immediately by eliminating the bacteria. This simple process will get rid of halitosis and can even eliminate morning breath. The results of treatment may be sustained for a lifetime with proper home care.
Sometimes periodontal disease is the cause of bad breath. Because it is generally painless and often doesn’t present any symptoms early on, many people are unaware that they have periodontal disease until they are checked out by a dentist or periodontist. It is estimated that nearly 75% of American adults have some form of gum disease and consequently many of these people will suffer from bad breath as well.
For people who have bad breath due to periodontal disease, it can usually be eliminated by treating the cause. Bad breath that is related to gum disease can often be treated with an FDA approved laser gum therapy called the LANAP procedure. The LANAP procedure uses light energy to remove disease-causing bacteria from the surface of the tooth. It is minimally invasive and usually does not require the use of scalpels or sutures. This procedure may not only get rid of bad breath that is related to gum disease, but it may also help save teeth that are at risk for being lost.
Bad breath is not something that one must suffer with for a lifetime. Dr. Joseph Nemeth is dedicated to helping people knock out their bad breath in the most comfortable and permanent way possible. He is located in the Metro Detroit area and taking new patients all the time.
