What is halitosis?

Most people wake up every morning with an unpleasant taste and odor in their mouth or have bad breath after meals — which can typically be a symptom of an upcoming bigger health issue. Chronic bad breath, is also known as halitosis, is characterized by a consistently unpleasant odor or taste in your mouth, dry mouth, or a white coating on your tongue. Brushing your teeth, breath mints, and chewing gum does not usually offer any benefits in treatment for halitosis.

What causes bad breath?

If you are suffering from bad breath even after regular brushing, it’s usually a symptom of a bigger issue — and often, that issue is GUM DISEASE

Gum disease is caused when there is prolonged deposition of plaque and calculus along your gums of the teeth. Both plaque and calculus are houses and source of bacteria that cause bad breath. These bacteria slowly damage your teeth, gums, and jaw bone…and in the process, also make your breath smell bad.

Other reasons for bad breath

Dry Mouth

Your saliva can also be a reason! Saliva also acts as a cleansing agent in your mouth- removing food particles stuck in your teeth. When you don’t produce enough saliva, you experience a situation called as dry mouth. Dry mouth stretching for long durations can be caused by a problem with your salivary glands, the adverse side effects of some medications you take, and some systemic diseases.

Tobacco Use

Smoking or chewing tobacco causes an unpleasant oral odor and is the most prevalent reason for Halitosis. Additionally, smokers and oral tobacco users are more prone to encounter gum disease and problems.

Infections & Diseases

If you recently had oral surgery (like a tooth extraction) it’s possible that the surgical site has become infected or has dry socket. This can cause a foul taste and odor in your mouth. Bad breath can also be caused due to tooth decay, mouth ulcers, or abscesses.

Tonsil Stones

Food particles and dead cells collect on your tonsils and calcify into small white formations called tonsil stones. Tonsil stones are filled with bad bacteria. The result into Bad breath.

Dental Appliances

Dentures that don’t fit properly or aren’t cleaned regularly harbor food particles and bacteria that can make your breath smell bad. It’s just one of the many reasons why it’s important for your dental appliance to be custom fit to your mouth!

Other Causes

Some diseases, like cancer, acid reflux, and metabolic disorders have also been associated with bad breath.

Everyone was nice, professional and able to answer any questions I had. If you want people who are passionate and care about your wellbeing, look no further. I could not express how grateful I am for this office, staff and to the great work of Dr Dhawan! I had an extraction and 2 implants with no pain at all. The care and constant concern of the Dr and staff is remarkable.
