DON’T LET THE BAD BREATH EMBARRASS YOU

Bad breath, which can even lead to unrest in the family and exclusion of a person from society, is a social problem. Taking care of your oral care, brushing your teeth and tongue twice a day, flossing, and getting enough fluids can eliminate the problem of bad breath.

Bad breath, which is medically called halitosis, is usually caused by inadequate oral care habits, infections that occur in the mouth, unhealthy habits such as smoking and alcohol use, and the foods you eat. Among other possible causes, dry mouth, respiratory tract infections, diabetes, kidney, liver and lung diseases include systemic diseases such as acid reflux, such as diseases of the digestive system.

Bad breath happens to almost everyone, including people who do not want to admit it. Although chronic bad breath (also known as halitosis) can have more serious causes, the occasional bad breath can be prevented quite easily with good oral health.

IT AFFECTS SOCIAL LIFE

You can continue your life with someone who has missing teeth, you can go for a walk, you can sleep, you can chat for hours in the same room, you can talk, but how many of these things can you do with someone who has bad breath? Bad breath is a social event. You can’t get close to people with a strong odor from the mouth for a meter, you can’t even get into their rooms. These are situations that destroy family life.

First, you should go to the dentist, then to the otolaryngologist, be treated, and all factors that cause odor should be eliminated. Since patients with bad breath cannot realize this, the situation should be explained to them in the appropriate language.

Turkey Medicals – the problem of bad breath can lead to domestic unrest, divorces, exclusion from society, and even dismissal from work. Bad breath also affects one’s own business.

.
A person with a bad breath does not go to a hairdresser, a barber, a doctor. Some types of bad breath, for example, bad breath that occurs in the morning, are considered normal, and usually this condition is not related to any health problems. When we stay in the same room with people with bad breath, the room begins to smell heavily in a short time. You gradually get used to it and don’t bother, but at the same time, someone who opens the door from the outside says, ‘It smells so heavy in here, how do you stand it?’. But does your mouth still smell when you brush your teeth?

Here’s what you need to do to prevent bad breath and take the necessary measures…

To remove bacterial plaque, brush your teeth at least twice a day. Then brush your tongue thoroughly. Pay attention to the area on the back of the tongue, where most of the bacteria that cause bad breath are located.

Effectively remove food particles using dental floss. A dental floss holder can be useful if it is difficult to reach for the teeth on the back.

If you don’t have blood pressure problems, you can gargle with salt water.

Drink plenty of water so that there is enough water in your body. The amount of water you will need varies depending on your daily activity level and the number of medications you are taking that cause dry mouth.

WATCH OUT FOR BLEEDING

Well-groomed gums have a pink appearance, while weak gums have a red and swollen appearance. This is one of the early signs of gum problems in general, and therefore it is important to consult a dentist as soon as possible, as this can lead to worse consequences. The most common cause of swelling of the gums is the accumulation of plaque around, above, and between the teeth. Decubitus is the most common cause of swelling of the gums.

Plaques tend to form when food particles containing carbohydrates (sugars and starches) are allowed to remain in the mouth. Not cleaning plaque (mostly by brushing) can lead to swelling around the tooth and gums. This condition can eventually spread to the gum pit that holds the tooth and lead to the formation of more serious problems.

.
IS MY GUM SICK?

The transition from a healthy gum to a sick, inflamed gum does not happen very quickly in a normal person; it is a process that usually spreads over a large period of time, showing symptoms. If you do not ignore these symptoms and go down the path of treatment, you can stop this process, which lasts until the inflammation progresses and loss of teeth, the formation of abscesses. Symptoms of gum diseases are as follows:

.
BACTERIAL PLAQUE

First of all, a potential gum patient has problems with brushing his teeth. Because it does not brush its teeth effectively, bacterial plaque forms on the teeth, which is a thin, transparent and sticky layer of microbes. This layer begins to form immediately after brushing your teeth and instantly, rapidly accumulates on all types of dentures on the tongue, gums and mouth. The presence of saliva and the washing feature are important for removing this structure, but saliva will also not be of much use unless the teeth are brushed, the food residues are cleaned.

.
DENTAL CALCULUS

So what happens if this plaque is not cleaned? Bacterial plaque will combine with various substances in saliva and in the oral environment to form a hard layer called dental calculus. A dental stone is a layer that is too hard to be destroyed by brushing, and the only way to clean it is by professional dental stone removal. In patients who do not have dental calculus cleaning, dental calculus will cause more damage to the gum day by day, more bacteria will accumulate on it and start the process of gingivitis.

.
BLEEDING GUMS

The inflamed gum is swollen, shiny and red in color, which can easily bleed even during brushing. These patients may also have bad breath. If the disease is determined at this stage and the person has a dental stone cleaning and pays attention to oral hygiene, the problem can be solved before the disease progresses.

.
BONE RESORPTION AND TOOTH DECAY

If dental calculus cleaning is not performed and hygiene is not observed, the bacteria contained in the dental calculus affect deeper tissues. After a while, the fibers between the tooth and the bone are also affected, and Decaying begins to appear on the teeth. The teeth cannot close as before and Decoupage occurs between the teeth.
