Treating Your Bad Breath

Francis Hesse asked:

Treatment for bad breath must address the source of the problem. Addressing the problem involves thorough cleaning of the mouth, throat and nasal areas. This has to be accomplished with special toothpaste, mouth rinse and nasal and throat sprays. Treatment depends on the underlying causes so eliminating the causes will in theory take care of the bad breath. However, in some cases, you may need to see a Dentist to identify the causes and treat the halitosis.

Mouth wash and fresheners make a great deal of sense. There could something especially aromatic in food that you eat away from home, or perhaps you are partial to garlic and onions. It is rare to have friends and family muster the courage to tell you that you may have halitosis, though this will not be the case with even the friendliest dentist. Mouth fresheners that you can buy without prescriptions do not constitute bad breath treatment in any case. Temporary relief is simply not good enough if the problem recurs often, or if it seems unrelated to food habits.

A dentist will need to make a thorough examination of the insides of your mouth, to determine whether you have halitosis, before deciding on a course of bad breath treatment to deal with the specifics of your case. Sometimes, just drinking water frequently, or chewing gum may suffice to deal with a dry mouth, which concentrates malodorous substances in exhaled breath. Children may often be guilty of improper brushing, though adults can be careless in this respect as well. Removing stale coating from the tongue, and dislodging pieces of food stuck between teeth, are other personal habits which may suffice by way of bad breath treatment. A dentist can also remove accumulated plaque, deal with diseases of the gums, and prescribe antibiotics, as forms of bad breath treatment.

Bad Breath Treatment beyond Your Mouth

Dentists cannot manage all cases of halitosis on their own. Gum diseases can be quite deep seated, and may need reference to a specialist in this field. However, not all cases of bad breath originate inside the mouth. A dentist may send a patient with halitosis to a physician to deal with a systemic cause. Ketones are smelly chemicals, which are excreted through urine, perspiration, and through exhaled breath as well. Ketones build up in blood to levels which result in halitosis if a person has diabetes, has been starving, or has inadequate carbohydrate intake. Ketosis can be life threatening, so halitosis may be an indication of a serious medical condition. That is why every case of persistent bad breath deserves professional attention.

Fortunately, bad breath treatment is relatively simple once the underlying cause has been determined. However, it can recur if a patient does not follow prescriptions, or change personal habits which lead to the problem. Bad breath may develop at any time, so being free of it at one point of time does not rule out the possibility of developing it later. It is best to ask an intimate friend or a member of the family to check periodically, and to keep every appointment with a dentist.

Bad Breath Treatment With Natural Herbs

Paul Hata asked:

Many rumors circulate from time to time about the cause of chronic bad breath, or halitosis. One can almost rule out the theory of bad breath coming from places other than the mouth. The esophagus is collapsed normally and air can only escape in the form of the occasional burp. If your mouth and teeth are healthy you should first check the dorsum, or that area on the back of the tongue

More than 20 million people are suffering from bad breath (chronic halitosis in medical terms). In most of the cases it starts due to problems in gums and tongue. Bacteria causes odour in the mouth and this occurred from the decomposed food particles and other debris in ones mouth and poor oral hygiene. The decay and debris create a sulphur compound, which causes an obnoxious odour.

Herbal cure of bad breath

Bad breath herbal remedy is prescribed by a number of doctors all over the world. Chronic halitosis can be caused by some medical conditions such as esophageal reflux and hiatal hernia; it may come from oral sources: cavities, gum diseases, and coatings on the tongue.

The irregular surface of the tongue creates an ideal environment for bacteria to conceal and reproduce. A lot of people think that a bad breath herbal remedy is a superior, healthier form of treatment than other unnatural substances often used to treat the problem. Herbs are nature’s medicine, so our body is better prepared to accept it. Herbs come from plants, which are found in nature. There is no side effect of this treatment therapy.

Herbs dealing with this disease

Parsley not only spices up our meals but it is also a bad breath remedy. Parsley is a natural bad breath remedy used by systematically chewing on the leaves. Other herbs and spices, which we can easily get in the kitchen, can be a natural bad breath remedy as well. For the unpredicted times when we may need a bad breath remedy, we should carry a small plastic baggie of cloves, fennel, or anise seeds to chew after odorous meals.

A bad breath herb treatment made of fresh coriander is a very effective remedy for bad breath. As far as the method to make medicine from coriander is concerned, it is very easy to don it. For it we are supposed to add few ounces of fresh coriander in two cups of water and then boil it for few minutes.

After having our meals if we will drink dill tea it will refresh our breath. Making dill tea is also very easy. For it we have to mix one to two teaspoons of dill leaves or mashed seeds per cup of boiling water. Even simply chewing on a few dill seeds also freshen our breath.
