Our bodies have some naturally developed mechanisms through which they indicate when something is wrong or simply protect it from potential harm. Although it is reassuring to know that our bodies can take care of themselves to some extend and we will not crash suddenly for no apparent reason, some of these mechanisms can embarrass us in certain social situations. The most common problems of this nature are unpleasantly smelling sweat through which our body simply ventilates, smelly feet that result after long days spend with our shoes on especially during hot summer season, sweat stains or bad breath. We have developed answers to all these uncomfortable problems, but most of them are temporary and life puts us in all kinds of situations when we cannot control our body’s response. Showers, deodorant and basically general hygiene are very good practices that we all use, only sometimes there are other underlying causes that can still create an incredible amount of distress. Moreover, there is another good practice called tolerance but that is not as wide spread as you would think so no comfort there.
Many people are affected by halitosis, or what we ordinarily call bad breath. While 1 in 4 people are estimated to have a bad breath on a daily basis, halitosis is also the third most common reason for them to reach out and seek dental care. Tooth decay and gum disease made it to the top 2 places. There are some widespread potential causes for this as well as treatments available, but it all comes down to oral hygiene. Some lifestyle changes and the use of natural remedies can improve the health of your mouth cavity and if these fail you should seek medical attention.
Tobacco consumption will leave your mouth with a specific, unpleasant smell together with a risk for gum disease which in turn will contribute to bad breath. Food residue is left after chewing and infiltrates between the teeth and inside the periodontal bags promoting plaque formation which is basically bacteria stacking on your teeth and gums. This is another cause for halitosis. Saliva has a very important role in your mouth’s health, it lubricates the inner membrane, gums, teeth, tongue and naturally cleanses them. Deficit of saliva production or a dry mouth caused by dehydration will increase chances of developing a bad breath.
Regular, daily oral hygiene through correctly brushing and flossing will prevent the bacterial film known as plaque to form, which will irritate the gums and cause inflammation that evolves into periodontitis. The harboring of bacteria and decomposed food particles becomes a constant source of halitosis. Crash diets that are based on fasting or low carbohydrate intake are another source for halitosis due to ketosis, the breakdown of fats in the body. The ketones have a very strong, unpleasant aroma.
Some other conditions that need additional care and treatment can also be the culprits for bad breath as a side effect and these include infections in the mouth, nose or throat, foreign bodies that obstruct the nasal cavity, various severe diseases like cancer, liver failure or other metabolic disorders. The odor released when suffering from halitosis has the same large spectrum as the potential causes, but the main prevention and treatment is the same: brushing at least twice a day for 2 minutes, flossing to clean every surface of the teeth, disinfecting and cleaning any dental appliance like dentures, bridges, retainers. Brushing the tongue and cheeks, staying hydrated to avoid mouth dryness and having a balanced diet without excessive consumption of strong scented foods.
