Bad breath is called halitosis in dentistry. No matter how well groomed you are, bad breath is a serious problem that will cause people to move away from you. It negatively affects both private and social life.
CAUSES OF MOUTH ODOR CLASS UNDER TWO GROUPS:
Halitosis is caused by 90% oral causes.
If regular oral care is not done, food residues accumulate between the teeth, on the tongue and gums and remain in the mouth and cause odor after a while.
When eating bad-smelling foods such as garlic and onions, the bad smell does not disappear until the body eliminates this food.
Deep gingival pockets caused by gum disease cannot be fully reached and cleaned. These pockets cause bad breath.
Decayed teeth in the mouth, overflowing and non-contact with neighboring teeth, abnormal tooth contact and loss of tooth morphology cause food to accumulate in these areas and cause bad breath.
Incompatible and badly used dentures cause bad breath.
Tumors in the mouth can cause bad breath.
Bad breath should not be neglected because it is a very disturbing situation in social life. Because you can completely get rid of this problem with small interventions.
TO RELEASE ORAL ODOR;
Gum diseases and dental caries in the mouth should be treated.
Care should be taken for oral and dental health, teeth should be brushed with a fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day, and toothpaste should be used once a day. During tooth brushing, the tongue should also be brushed.
Care should be taken in the care of the prostheses used.
