Everyone has experienced bad breath at one time or another. Bad breath can also be called halitosis. Bad breath can be caused by a health condition, such as bad teeth or gum disease. Bad breath can be temporary or chronic. According to the American Dental Association at least 50% of adults have experienced halitosis during their lifetime.
You may notice a bad taste or smell in your mouth. It is possible that the bad taste in your mouth is not due to food particles trapped in your mouth. Bacteria is responsible for the breakdown of food particles stuck in your teeth and mouth. Bad odor is caused by bacteria and decaying foods in your mouth. Regular brushing and flossing can remove trapped food before it begins to decay.
The dentist will examine your mouth and ask questions. You may be recommended to schedule an appointment in the morning before you brush your teeth. Questions about how often you floss and what foods you eat will be answered. You should tell your doctor about how often you snore and what medications you are taking, as well as when it started. Your dental professional will examine your mouth, nose and tongue to find out the cause of bad breath. Your dentist will recommend you see your family doctor if the odor is not coming from your mouth or teeth. A dental cleaning can solve your problem if you have bad breath due to plaque buildup. If you have periodontal disease, a deep cleaning of your teeth may be required.
The treatment of underlying medical conditions such as sinus infections or kidney disease can help to improve breath odor. If your problem is caused by dry or dry mouth, your dentist might recommend you use an artificial saliva product.
