The bad breath treatment is one of the most frequent reasons individuals contact our Dental Clinic in Wadgaon Sheri, Pune, even though most people identify dentists with cavities, root canals, and tooth cleaning. Bad breath, often known as halitosis, is quite embarrassing, especially if it is persistent.

It should come as no surprise that a significant percentage of store shelves is devoted to items like mouthwash, gum, mints, etc. that are meant to combat bad breath. But few of these products—if any at all—address the underlying issue, so all they manage to do is cover up the smell for a short period of time. Finding and treating halitosis's root cause is part of bad breath treatment.

It may only need improving your oral hygiene, which includes brushing thoroughly at least twice a day, using floss frequently, cleansing your tongue, and avoiding foods like garlic and onions. However, the issue can occasionally be a little more intricate. Because bad breath might be a sign of a more serious issue, you should come in and visit us if it continues despite your efforts to improve it. The following are some examples of the reasons for bad breath:

Oral Infections: Halitosis can be brought on by tooth decay, gum disease, or mouth sores. Gum disease that has proceeded to the point of periodontal disease is brought on by an accumulation of oral bacteria and plaque in hard-to-reach areas including in between the teeth and under the gum line.

Gum recession creates areas where bacteria can grow, resulting in infected cavities, inflamed, bleeding gums, and persistent bad breath. If the germs are not treated, they will attack and ruin the bone structure, causing the teeth to become so loose that they will either need to be removed surgically or naturally. When you see us for bad breath treatment, we can determine whether you actually have an illness and cure it.

Ill-Fitting Or Lose Dentures: Food particles become caught behind dentures that do not fit well or are not cleaned on a regular basis. The resulting bacteria may provide a very repulsive odor.

Dry Mouth: An extremely dry mouth can lead to bad breath because saliva not only aids in food digestion but also keeps our mouths wet and controls bacterial growth. Saliva assists in washing away food particles that might otherwise adhere to the teeth's surface and cause plaque, the yellow-in color, sticky film of bacteria that forms on the teeth's surface and in between them.

Plaque is the main contributor to tooth decay because bacteria eat away at the enamel before infecting the softer inner layer of the tooth, which as it starts to disintegrate also starts to smell bad.

Bad breath treatment entails a very comprehensive oral examination and an equally detailed medical history assessment. If it turns out that your bad breath comes from your mouth, we'll talk about the best way to treat it.

For example, tackling gum disease and cavities may be necessary. However, if we have reason to believe that there is an additional, potentially more significant reason for your halitosis, we will advise that you visit a physician to determine the cause.

For instance, infections of the nose, throat, or sinuses, such as "tonsil stones"—which form when bacteria and other debris get caught in the crevices of the tonsils and eventually calcify—can produce bad breath. In addition to metabolic problems, pneumonia or bronchitis might also be a factor. However, Dr. Awanthi's Dental Clinic will initially rule out any potential oral health problems.
