Treatment for Bad Breath

Most causes of halitosis, or bad breath, are found in the mouth. Plaque, tartar buildup, an infected tooth or diseased gum tissue are common culprits. The bacteria feed on plaque and tartar and proliferate, causing an unpleasant odor. Decaying teeth can also produce a strong odor; this shows that infection is rampant inside the tooth.

Our dentists and our hygienist at Downriver Smiles will begin with a thorough professional teeth cleaning to eradicate any buildup around your teeth and gums. We will also check your teeth for any signs of infection or decay. You may be prescribed medications for any infection or require additional treatments to remedy problems with any of your teeth. After these obvious causes are fixed, the halitosis usually goes away.

If our dentists does not find any reasons for your halitosis in your oral cavity, he will refer you to your regular general health physician. The problem could be in your digestive tract.

Contact Downriver Smiles today, and schedule an appointment for halitosis treatment in Spokane. Restore your oral health, and get back to normal living!

Dr. Gaunt is the best! This is the first dentist that I have had a good experience with. I had a root canal done and was so nervous, they made me comfortable and had it done within an hour. I would definitely recommend Downriver smiles!

I had the worst dental anxiety before going to Dr. Gaunt years ago- to the point I let my teeth go until they were breaking, in need of numerous fillings, root canals, and extractions. Dr. Gaunt was by far the best dentist I have ever had; he explained everything in as much detail as I required, made me comfortable with any procedure and has won my and my family's business throughout the years with his excellent care and demeanor. Dr. Gaunt and all his wonderful staff are a joy to work with and I can guarantee our continued visits in the years to come for any work my family requires. Thank you Downriver Smiles staff!

The employees at Shadle Smiles are so friendly and make sure you understand your procedures and cost before work is done. Dr Harding was my dentist and listened to my concerns about work to be done. He only does what work really needs to be done and what can wait. Love this place!

  • Best dentist in Spokane! Don’t look any further! I chipped my front tooth and they got me in the next day! Left with a beautiful smile and my wallet still intact! I wasn’t an existing patient, but I am now! Awesome environment and extremely friendly staff! 10/10 hands down would recommend!
