Bad Breath Causes

The most common reason for having odor in the mouth is usually due to the person’s inability to provide complete oral hygiene. It is the result of the food eaten or drunk in the evening entering between the teeth and accumulating on the tongue. This odor is not permanent and will pass after oral care by brushing the teeth. In addition to dental care, you can also clean the bacteria accumulated on the tongue during the day with tongue cleaning brushes specially produced to clean the bacteria on the tongue. If you are using a denture, it should be removed at night and thoroughly cleaned before wearing it the next day.

Causes of Bad Breath Despite Providing Oral Hygiene

  • Bad breath due to gum diseases;

    People need to have tartar cleaning or gum treatment.

  • Bad breath caused by tooth decay and dental abscess;
    Tooth filling or, if necessary, root canal treatment is required.
  • Bad breath caused by prosthesis;
    There may be a problem with the hygiene of the fixed or removable prosthesis used by the person. The problem should be determined and treated by the dentist.
  • Other reasons;
    It may be caused by diseases related to the stomach, nasal meat and upper respiratory tract. In these cases, the underlying cause should be investigated and treated first.
