Choosing a Bad Breath Doctor

National Breath Center founder, Dr. Richard A. Miller acknowledges that there are a number of dentists and specialists who claim to cure bad breath, but the overwhelming majority are using products as the basis for their cure. The key factor here is the word “cure.”  By definition, a bad breath CURE should eliminate the problem itself, all related causes, and provide the means to keep halitosis from coming back. That’s why it is essential to do your homework and keep the following guidelines in mind when choosing a bad breath clinic or specialist.

A bad breath cure should involve actual treatment of the root cause of the problem.

While the media would like us to believe that all problems can be cured with a bottled potion, we urge you to fully understand the signs and symptoms of bad breath. If you treat bad breath by using gum, mints, toothpastes, tongue scrapers and even professional strength mouthwashes, you will temporarily decrease the odor. It is important to know that products are designed to tackle the symptoms of a problem, not the real cause. The result is a constant dependence on these products in order to feel confident about your breath while the bacterial biofilm continues to build, making these products less effective over time.

The National Breath Center specializes in meticulously eliminating the root cause of bad breath and providing each patient with the means to keep it from coming back. This creates a solution for maintaining fresh breath for life.
