Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Bad breath in medical language is called halitosis, and it can indeed be caused by various things, including:
Eating certain foods Using dentures or stirrups The arrangement of teeth that is not neat so that the leftovers are easily related to smoking Alcohol consumption There is an infection in the oral cavity Not routinely maintaining oral hygiene Dry mouth Side effects of certain health conditions such as flu, stomach acid disease, and sore throat So in your case, it's true that periodontitis, which is a form of inflammation in the oral cavity, can cause bad breath. But as there are many causes of bad breath, the treatment also varies depending on the main cause.
Therefore, regarding your question, how to deal with bad breath due to periodontitis is to handle the periodontitis. And to treat periodontitis, you need to see your dentist. This is important because the dentist will need to look directly at your teeth before making a diagnosis and determining treatment. Because because we don't check you directly, we also can't be certain whether you have periodontitis or not. If so, we cannot confirm whether the periodontitis is causing bad breath or is there something else. By seeing a dentist directly, misunderstandings can be avoided, the diagnosis can be more precise, and the treatment you will receive is more accurate.
Meanwhile, keep the oral cavity clean by regularly brushing your teeth, using mouthwash and dental floss, avoiding the consumption of sweet foods and drinks, avoiding cigarettes and alcohol, increasing your consumption of water and checking yourself immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
