While bad breath can be an indicator of gum disease, sometimes bad breath can be linked to the types of bacteria that dominate the back portion of your tongue.
People plagued by bad breath despite regular brushing, flossing and gargling with mouth wash could benefit from laser therapy.
At Loveable Smiles in Richardson we use our Waterlase i-Plus to painlessly and easily “rejuvenate” the surface of the tongue and eliminate your bad breath.

Some bacteria protect against halitosis, the formal name for really bad breath, while others cause the pungent odor.
One of the reasons people have found great difficulty fighting bad breath is because they don’t know how to reach the areas of the tongue where bacteria live, feed, and reproduce, undisturbed.
The back of the tongue is an ideal breeding ground for anaerobic (oxygen resistant) bacteria.
After treatment, many people don’t even have morning breath.
