Visit the ďBad Breath DoctorĒ at the Center for Breath Treatment, Bad Breath/Halitosis Clinic
Until recently, most treatments have been generally unsuccessful in resolving bad breath conditions. Common treatments such as mouthwashes, mints, chewing gums, mouth sprays, and intestinal cleansings otherwise known as colonics, are simply inadequate, and generally donít address the real underlying issues causing halitosis or bad breath.
There are many websites offering Ďmagicí breath products, but at the Center for Breath Treatment halitosis clinic we have found most to be ineffective. The reason is that an accurate diagnosis as to the causes of bad breath is fundamental to obtaining effective treatment. The only way to achieve this kind of accuracy is to be seen in our specialized bad breath clinic; otherwise any diagnosis is based on guesswork or assumptions. In addition, clinic patients can receive prescription medications that are not available on-line or through our Home Treatment Kit.

Most patients we see in our bad breath clinic have had their halitosis problem, on average, for 15-20 years prior to seeing us. The reason for this is that for years they have been experimenting with products they have found in the stores and online, and most of these products do not do what the manufacturers claim they will do. Many patients we see have also sought treatment with numerous physicians and dentists prior to seeing us but the problem has been that very few doctors have much knowledge or experience in the diagnosis and treatment of halitosis. As a consequence, a lot of expensive and needless procedures and tests are performed in an attempt to find the causes of their patientsí halitosis conditions.
At the Center for Breath Treatmentís halitosis clinic, we feel that the treatment of halitosis should be no different than the treatment of any other health condition. An accurate diagnosis as to the causes of the condition must be determined first in order to know what treatments will be effective. If treatment is not done in this manner then the diagnosis and treatment become a guessing game, and poor results will follow.
Every patient we see will undergo a thorough set of diagnostic procedures at their initial appointment at our specialized bad breath clinic, so that we can fully understand the specific causes of their condition. Over the years we have found there are always multiple causes to a personís halitosis. For this reason, it takes a combination of treatments to effectively treat each case. Once all of the data is gathered and we have formulated a complete diagnosis at the initial appointment, the bad breath doctor will discuss with the patient what the specific causes are to their condition. Often times we may find there are things they are doing to themselves that are actually contributing to their bad breath problem. Once we understand these causative factors we will then direct treatment towards the specific causes we have found. Because we approach the problem in this scientific manner we continue to have excellent results when it comes to eliminating this condition for our patients.
If you have dental insurance we will assist you in getting reimbursement from your dental insurance company for treatment in our halitosis clinic.
As part of the diagnostic process every patient undergoes an in-depth interview with Dr. Anthony Dailley, followed by a thorough examination, x-rays if necessary, an analysis of the patientís breath and sinus gasses. If necessary an analysis of the saliva and of the salivary flow is performed also.
If it is not feasible for you to see us in person then the next best way to treat your halitosis condition would be to follow our home treatment program. As we stated before, because there are always multiple causes to a halitosis condition it generally requires a combination approach to treating it. The comprehensive bad breath treatment kits we offer are the best approach to take if one canít come to our clinic because they will address many of the common causative factors that produce a bad breath condition.
To better assist you in resolving your breath problem Dr. Dailley is happy to provide a free consultation with you over the phone to help you in determining which bad breath products or programs would be most appropriate for your needs. Please understand that it is impossible to provide an accurate diagnosis of the causes of a personís halitosis condition without physically seeing them, and we cannot make available all of the medications that we use in our halitosis clinic.
The most effective method of treatment for halitosis is available in our halitosis clinic.
