Hello, thanks for the question.
Bad breath or halitosis is a condition where the mouth or breath smells. Bad breath is usually not a dangerous condition, but can also be a sign of a dangerous disease. Bad breath can be caused by several things, such as:
Infection in the mouth, due to inflammation of the gums, teeth, inflammation of the throat, inflammation of the tonsils, and inflammation after surgery / surgery in the mouth.
The remaining food in the mouth will cause bacterial growth and plaque in the mouth
The use of dentures can cause infection
Smoking and consuming alcohol.
Poor oral hygiene
Health conditions. Health problems experienced by patients can also cause bad breath or halitosis, such as sinusitis, pneumonia, bronchitis, diabetes, lactose intolerance, liver disorders, kidney disorders, and GERDor acid reflux disease.
One risk that can arise after surgery is an infection, usually due to lack of maintaining oral hygiene. It's best to consult the dentist who performed the surgery on you. The doctor will re-examine and support if necessary. Handling will be adjusted to the conditions experienced. If bad breath is caused by an infection, usually the doctor will prescribe antibiotics and other medicines. To avoid bad breath you should set your diet pattern and menu, avoid sharp-smelling foods, regularly maintain oral hygiene, clean your tongue to get rid of bacteria on its surface, avoid cigarettes and alcohol, consume sugar-free gum or gum, consume sufficient liquid, use oral cleaning products, consult a doctor if bad breath is accompanied by other complaints.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
