Halitosis is bad breath or the emission of unpleasant odors from the mouth. It usually originates in the oral cavity due to bacterial decomposition of food scraps. Halitosis can have psychological repercussions on sufferers, as they may experience problems in their family and social life.
What are the symptoms of halitosis ?
The main symptom of halitosis is bad breath odor.
REASONS OF HALITOSIS
Reasons of this disorder can be oral (problems with teeth, gums, saliva, tongue…) or extra-oral (respiratory tract disorders, organic or digestive changes or tobacco and alcohol consumption). In the latter case, the diagnosis is more complex and requires advanced technology. Diseases and clinical conditions associated with the formation of volatile compounds can be related to a wide variety of medical fields.
HOW CAN YOU AVOID IT ?
Halitosis can be avoided by following a good oral hygiene, which should be done with good brushing, meticulous flossing, a good mouthwash to remove acids and food debris that can break down and cause bad breath. This cleaning should be done after every meal and especially before going to bed. It is a time when the mouth is at rest and the production of salivary flow, a substance that inhibits the action of bacteria, decreases. Regular check-ups at Rhône Dental Clinic can also help prevent halitosis or any pathology that may cause it.
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT ?
In cases where the direct cause of halitosis is an oral problem, the treatment will depend on the case. The specialist will determine if the solution is to remove tartar and plaque, extract decayed teeth, use dental floss and fluoride antiseptic. Then brush three times a day, perform a lingual cleaning or avoid tobacco, alcohol or certain foods and beverages like coffee. If the halitosis is due to another pathology, the specialist will have to perform the necessary tests to discover the source of the problem.
During your consultation, your particular situation will be discussed in more detail. We encourage you to ask any questions you may have. If new questions arise after your consultation, please do not hesitate to contact the clinic. During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your Halitosis in Geneva.
