Using A Laser For The Treatment Of Halitosis

Aug 17, 2007
Sufferers of halitosis or bad breath of feel embarrased and avouid close contact with others as a result. If you are embarrassed or distressed by constant bad breath, don't worry, there are plenty of ways to fix the problem.

Even if you aren't quite sure if you have halitosis, you may want to consider laser treatment in order to treat your bad breath. Read on to find helpful information on laser treatment for halitosis, and how you can get rid of halitosis forever.

Halitosis laser treatment is usually only done for severe forms of the condition, and the bacteria is usually created in the tonsils at an alarming and consistent rate. It is a particular form of halitosis which does not always respond to normal treatment. Brushing and flossing do not help (though you should always continue with normal oral hygiene) as the infection is too far back and, although gargling and mouthwashes can help, infected tonsils can be extremely difficult to treat using conventional remedies.

Surprisingly, this form of halitosis is not diagnosed very often, so may have the condition and not be aware of it. Milder cases of halitosis are usually more common, and are caused by bacteria buildup in the cavities and gums of the mouth. These cases do not normally require laser treatment, but your dental surgeon may still want to consider the procedure in order to permanently correct a problem.

Most of the people that have decide to take advantage of laser treatment have been cured with just one treatment, and some have reported being totally cured in two or three treatments. The laser treatment usually takes no more than 15 minutes, so you can do it on your lunch break or in between meetings. The laser procedure vaporizes the tissues that hold the bacteria, and the scar tissue that is formed by the treatment can't be colonized by bacteria, which means that harmful germs and impurities will not fester inside the mouth.

If you're thinking seriously about laser treatment for halitosis, you should talk to your doctor and dentist in detail about the treatment, so that you can find out if the process would be the best decision for you. You'll also want to make sure that your medical insurance will cover the laser treatment, since many insurance companies may see it as a cosmetic procedure. If you find that you will not be covered, you should also discuss payment options with your physician to make sure you can afford laser treatment for halitosis.
