Tackling Bad Breath with Bad Breath Treatments
If you suffer from frequent bad breath, also called halitosis, you probably feel embarrassed. People often try to cover up bad breath with mints or alcohol-based mouthwashes that can dry the mouth out and actually make halitosis worse. Frequent bad breath can’t simply be masked, because it’s caused by the continual decay of oral bacteria, human cells, and food debris. If it’s not effectively treated, bad breath can limit your social interactions and hurt your professional life.

Bad Breath Treatment Options
Volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) are the odiferous compounds contributing to your bad breath. They occur from the breakdown of bacteria and food particles. The CloSys III system is a four-part program that neutralizes the acidity in the mouth and decreases VSCs. Instead of just masking symptoms, CloSys III addresses the cause of the odor with chlorine dioxide, providing results for up to five hours. Other tips to curtail bad breath include drinking lots of water, practicing good oral hygiene, scheduling routine checkups and cleanings, and chewing sugar-free gum.
