Eliminate bad breath and boost your confidence
We all deal with bad breath from time to time, especially after eating certain foods like garlic or onions. But if you’re experiencing bad breath (halitosis) on a regular basis, it may be a sign of a more serious issue such as gum disease or an underlying medical condition.
At Village Dental, we diagnose and treat bad breath on a regular basis. Our caring and experienced Greenwood Village bad breath dentists will work with you to determine the specific cause of your bad breath and recommend effective treatments to resolve the issue.

Treatments for bad breath
Consistent oral hygiene habits
If you often forget to keep up with your daily at-home dental care, this is likely causing a buildup of odor-causing bacteria. Daily care such as brushing, flossing, and using an antibacterial mouthwash can help to eliminate bad breath and improve your overall oral health.
Gum disease treatment
Early-stage gum disease is a common cause of chronic bad breath. We can provide targeted treatments for gum disease and tooth decay to restore your oral health and alleviate bad breath. Learn more.
Regular dental cleanings
Over time, our teeth accumulate plaque and tartar that even regular brushing and flossing can’t remove, leading to mouth odors. Professional dental cleanings and exams every six months will help you achieve and maintain fresh breath. Learn more.
If you smoke or chew tobacco or regularly consume foods and drinks that cause bad breath, reducing or eliminating these products can help improve your breath.
