What causes bad breath?

It is common to feel bad odor coming out of your mouth when you wake up in the morning or after long hours of hunger and thirst. However, it goes away as soon as your brush or rinse your oral cavity with a mouthwash. The problem is when the “bad breath” lingers in your mouth even after you have rinsed your mouth.

Bad breath or halitosis is not only problematic for your oral cavity but it can negatively affect your mental and social well-being as well. People often resort to using chewing gums or peppermint mouth sprays to freshen their breath. However, nothing helps much if the cause is not removed.

What we do?

Dr. Dutt at Opulent Dental educates the patients to learn all the bad breath causing reasons and avoid them to live a confident life.

Things that cause bad breath or halitosis:

  • Tooth decay (severe dental caries)
  • Infection of hard or soft tissues
  • Abscess or pus formation in the mouth
  • Dry mouth
  • Poor oral hygiene practice
  • Certain medications
  • Certain foods like onion, cheese, alcohol
  • Empty stomach
  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Poor healed tooth socket after extraction
  • Ill-fitting dental prosthesis
  • Gum diseases
  • Systemic diseases

Even though bad breath does not require emergency dental care, it still needs to be treated. You can go to your family dentist or any other dental clinic- because only they can help you with it.
