Causes And Overcoming Bad Breath?
Good night, last year I tried using the mouthwash ‘Listerine’ because I wanted to maintain better oral health even though my breath was normal and did not smell. but after a few weeks during the fasting month I started to feel strange and my mouth began to smell unpleasant and at that time I was still using listerine even though in the previous years I did not use listerine and during the fasting month was normal. The problem is that when I stopped using Listerine my breath remained the same as smelling, please help with this situation. I was very difficult to socialize even though I used to be a person who was very sociable and had many friends, thank you.
Hello Putri, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Halitosis is a condition in which a person produces unpleasant breath odor from his mouth. However, bad breath when you just wake up in the morning and after eating hard-smelling foods is normal and is not classified as halitosis.
Most bad breath is caused by dental and oral health problems, such as cavities, gum disease, and dentures that are not cleaned properly. In addition to dental and oral health problems, bad breath can also be caused by:
Gastric ailments such as gastritis and GERD Sinusitis Diabetes Respiratory infections Smoking, etc. Normally, if you frequently clean teeth and mouth hygiene, then bad breath can be eliminated. However, if bad breath does not go away for a long time, then you should look for the basic cause of bad breath. I suggest that you consult directly with the dentist so that a thorough examination can be carried out so that treatment can be given according to your diagnosis.
The things that you can do to reduce your complaint are:
Brush your teeth twice a day and replace your toothbrush at least once every two months. Clean the tongue, flossing, and rinse. Check your dental health at least every 6 months. Stop smoking and avoid excessive consumption of coffee and alcohol. Drink enough water. Also read the article: recognize-the-causes-bad-mouth-by-how to overcome them
