HALITOSIS - BAD BREATH

..something that even your best friend can't tell you!

Halitosis, is a phenomenon that is both an affliction and a cuase for concern for a lot of people, it is independent of gender, age, ethnicity or job and as such it is classfied as a social problem. No one can ignore that fact that they may have bad breath, although there are numerous people that are unaware that they have halitosis.

The mouth is the basic source for human communication, that is shown through speech, smiling and kissing. Therefore, it is an important part of our health, including our mental health, to feel that our mouth is clean and our breath is fresh.

WHAT CAUSES BAD BREATH?

Halitosis can be caused by just one factor or a combination of factors. The main causes are listed below:

  • gum damage (gingivitis , peridonitis)
  • bad oral hygiene 
  • dry mouth 
  • insufficient cleaning of false teeth 
  • food remaining at the back of the mouth and the base of the tongue  
  • sinus infections
  • longterm illnesses (e.g. diabetics has the scent of rotten apples)
  • odours from the stomach 
  • eating food with strong smells (e.g. onion, garlic)  
  • eating acidic foods (coffee, juice etc.), diet and protein foods (meat, fish etc.) that increase the growth of microbes 
  • overconsumption of sweets that can lead to microbe growth
IS THERE ANYTHING THAT CAN BE DONE FOR HALITOSIS?

There are some general rules for dealing with halitosis that can apply to everyone.

A visit to the dentist will help you find the basic cause of the halitosis, which can be different for each individual, and as such the solution will be different for each patient. For example if the halitosis is caused by peridontology then the problem will continue until this has been dealt with. 

The dentist team at the VSmile clinic in Piraeus, carry out a full check-up for each new patient. As such the dentist can ascertain as to whether the inital cause of the halitosis is related to aproblem in the mouth.

The findings and the needs of each patient are recorded and from this the dental team derive the most suitable course of treatment tailour made to each individual patient. In this way we assist patients to get rid of their halitosis if the problem is caused within the mouth, and assist in the reduction of or the progression of the halitosis in the evne that the cause is outside of the mouth area.
