It can be embarrassing to talk about, but chronic bad breath can negatively impact your personal and business relationships. Bad breath, or “halitosis” in medical terminology, is not an issue to be shrugged off lightly. Fortunately, if you live in Las Vegas, dentists at The Chin and Pharar Cosmetic Dentistry Center can help with your condition.
Many of our patients initially tried to “treat” their bad breath with chewing gum or breath mints or by some minor dietary changes. But halitosis is a significant medical condition that requires meaningful treatment to address.
We’re committed to providing that treatment to our patients in and around Las Vegas. Our dentists have the skill and experience to alleviate your chronic bad breath and end your embarrassment.

Causes of Chronic Bad Breath
People hear “bad breath” and tend to think of conditions experienced after a particularly spicy, aromatic meal or the morning after you decided to skip brushing your teeth one night (which you should never do).
But bad breath in that context, however unpleasant, is almost always temporary and medically insignificant. Chronic halitosis, on the other hand, is a serious condition, and it’s here that our Las Vegas dentists come in.
Causes of chronic bad breath include:
- Infections in your mouth
- Missing teeth
- Stomach viruses
- Acid reflux
- Tooth decay
- Dry mouth
Defeating bad breath is really just a matter of discovering its proximate cause. Once the cause has been discovered, treatment is usually pretty simple. However, it requires a skilled Las Vegas dentist to discover the cause in the first place, and you’ll want someone of similar experience and skill devising your course of treatment.
Treatment options include:
- Teeth replacement options (such as dental implants)
- Antibiotics to treat infections
- Long-term acid reflux treatments
- Gum treatment
Bad breath isn’t something you just have to tolerate our. Las Vegas-area residents have been coming to our dentists for years to find treatment for halitosis. And now we can help you.
