[O] inter-word space in org -> latex

Dear org-mode community,

In LaTeX, a space after a period is treated as an inter-sentence space, which is wider than an inter-word space. This can lead to overly wide spacing after a period that ends an abbreviation rather than a space. The way to cover this in LaTeX is to use a backslash prior to the space, as in:

Mr.\ Henry Higgins.

I have some documents in org that have the same issue: periods concluding abbreviations, with the result that LaTeX puts more space than I want after the abbreviation. Yet the use of "\ " does not work, as the backslash is exported to LaTeX as a literal backslash.

How should I mark in org mode that I want a space following a period concluding an abbreviation to be seen by LaTeX as an interword space?
