HALITOSIS CAN BE IMPROVED AND EVEN SOLVED
Halitosis, one of the oldest social problems, popularly called “bad breath”, is defined as an unpleasant odor that comes from the oral cavity.
It is a concern that is demoralizing and negatively impacts the lives of millions of people. For a long time, bad breath was related to diseases of the stomach, maxillary sinuses, or lungs.
The most frequent origin of bad breath lies in the oral cavity, exactly in the gums and tongue, and it is the dentist who can help you solve it. Most patients who have bad breath usually have periodontal infections, that is, gingivitis and periodontitis, diseases that, if not treated in time, lead to the loss of all teeth and molars. A minimal percentage of halitosis has its origin in respiratory and stomach problems.
At Clínica Curull we have a device called “Halimeter” that allows us to measure the volatile sulfurs responsible for bad breath in order to have an objective view of the problem and be able to treat the pathology that produces it.
Are the use of specific pharmaceutical products for bad breath indicated for the treatment of halitosis?
The products that are marketed for the treatment of halitosis only temporarily mask bad breath, but do not treat it. To do this, we must know the exact origin of halitosis (oral or extraoral), and thus be able to treat it correctly.
Foods with strong odors such as onions, garlic, certain cheeses, strong spices, and foods high in fermentable sugars can temporarily cause bad breath. Additionally, high protein diets can lead to increased production of sulfur compounds, which can also cause bad breath. However, this set of unpleasant odors is usually temporary and can be eliminated as long as proper oral hygiene is performed.
The difference is based on its origin and cause. On the one hand, intraoral halitosis originates within the oral cavity. It is mainly caused by bacteria that accumulate in the mouth, on the tongue, gums, or teeth. Which can cause periodontal diseases, bacterial plaque, and cavities that can contribute to halitosis. On the other hand, extraoral halitosis has its origin outside the oral cavity. Rather, it is related to health problems that do not originate directly in the mouth, such as gastrointestinal problems, and respiratory diseases, among other factors.
