The treatment of halitosis in most cases involves the delivery of care to both the dental and at times medical condition.
The first stage of treatment is to test the severity of the VSC gases being released. This test is done using device called a halimeter. The halimeter measures the amount of sulfur being released.
The severity of the halitosis determines the form of treatment. After the measurement, we then begin treating the oral cavity with a site-specific chemical that neutralizes the sulfur gases. This chemical is Chlorine Dioxide. Chlorine works by oxidizing the sulfur molecules in bad breath causes, thus eliminating the odor entirely.
Special cleaning therapy along with similar home rinses mast be recommended. Throughout the course of treatment, the gases of the oral cavity will continue to be monitored with the halimeter.
