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.

Getting Rid of Bad Breath in 5 Simple Steps

Kelvin Ho asked:

Bad breath is a truly disturbing problem that can affect your social life. Unfortunately, there are many causes and sometimes you may just need your doctor to help you determine the underlying cause of it. The good news is that, in most cases, getting rid of it is not at all hard.

Here are some simple steps that will guide you through the most effective actions you can do in order to fight your smelly breath.

Toothbrushes

Most of us know that our toothbrushes need to be changed every three months. The first step towards fresher breath is to purchase a new toothbrush. Toothbrushes tend to become worn after more than three months of usage. The bristles fray and as such would not be able to clean your teeth and gums effectively. Food particles are very likely to be left behind after brushing your teeth with a worn out toothbrush.

Diet

The second step is to analyze your diet. Cut down on any food that might leave your breath with a foul smell. Onions, garlic and certain types of fish are well known to cause halitosis so avoid them by changing your diet and having less of such nasty foods.

Medication

The third step is to look at the medication you have taken. There are many drugs out there that have halitosis as a side effect. If you are presenting using any of these drugs, consult your doctor and ask for a possible substitute.

If none is available, ask the doctor how the drugs cause bad breath. This will allow you to understand the underlying cause so that the appropriate remedies can be applied. For example, if the drugs are known to cause dry mouth, you could then do whatever it takes to keep your mouth moisturize.

Mouthwash and Chewing Gums

The fourth step is to make use of mouthwashes and sugar free chewing gum. Ensure that your mouthwash does not contain alcohol but has oxygenation causing ingredients so that you can kill the anaerobic bacteria present in the mouth, which is one of the most common causes of your smelly breath conditions.

Sugar free chewing gum is perfect in both making your mouth generate saliva and removing eventual leftovers from an early meal (both situations are known to cause bad breath). Do not use mints as they usually contain sugar, which is a great source of nutrients for anaerobic bacteria.

Tongue Cleaner

The last step is to get a tongue cleaner. Brushing your tongue with a tooth brush might actually push present bacteria to the back of the throat, where they can live and multiply while causing extremely bad breath. Using a tongue cleaner is the best way to avoid this.

Conclusion

As you can see from above, getting rid of bad breath is not difficult. With these 5 simple steps, you will be on your way to cleaner and fresher breath.
