Bad Breath Treatment in Lahore

Unpleasant breath, also known as halitosis, can be bothersome and have adverse effects on your social and professional interactions. It is a common problem that many people experience, and for some, it is a chronic issue. Dealing with persistent or severe bad breath can impact your daily life and self-confidence. Making changes to your lifestyle and oral hygiene practices can help improve bad breath. In some cases, it may be necessary to consult your dentist or general practitioner to identify the cause and address any underlying health conditions contributing to the problem. Bad breath can sometimes be a symptom of an underlying medical issue.

Symptoms of Bad Breath:

Finding the symptoms is not too difficult. Your breath might not be right, or a friend or coworker might point out the stench to you. It’s not pleasant to be aware of having foul breath, let’s face it. But you’re one step closer to fixing the issue if you have a reliable friend or family member who can be honest with you about it. It’s also challenging to tell someone they have horrible breath, let’s face it.

Other than a strange smell, certain symptoms might be rather severe. Your gums may be sore, bleeding, or swollen; you may have a  toothache; or, if you wear dentures, you may be experiencing issues with them. Your bad breath may linger for a few weeks. To discuss your concerns and explore treatment choices in any of these situations, make a dentist consultation.

Causes of Bad Breath:

Although there are numerous and different reasons for bad breath, it typically begins in the mouth. They may consist of:

  • Poor dental habits such as infrequent brushing and flossing
  • A build-up of food on the tongue, between the teeth or along the gums
  • A build-up of plaque, which can be from infrequent visits to your dentist or hygienist
  • Gum disease, tooth decay and dental abscesses

Xerostomia, or dry mouth, can cause bad breath. Insufficient saliva prevents the effective removal of food particles. Risk factors for dry mouth include smoking, certain medications, and mouth breathing. Excessive alcohol consumption can also reduce saliva production. Dietary choices, such as garlic, onions, caffeine, protein, and sugar, can contribute to bad breath. Various medical conditions, including stomach disorders, sinus and bronchial problems, infections in the nose, throat, and lungs, as well as other ailments, can affect breath odour. Additional factors like stress, dieting, snoring, and hormonal changes may also have an impact.

Get Prepared:

When scheduling a bad breath appointment at SmileOn, it’s important to expedite the identification and resolution of the cause. We understand. Consider what information your dentist will require to identify and address your issue in advance.

Prior to a thorough examination of your mouth, teeth, jaw, tongue, throat, sinuses, ears, nose, and neck, your dentist will inquire about your medical history. Depending on the suspected cause of your bad breath, an X-ray may also be necessary.

Your dentist will ask you questions about problems you’re experiencing, such as:

  • When did your bad breath start?
  • How noticeable is the odour?
  • Have you made any changes in your dental routine?
  • Has your diet changed?
  • Are you experiencing any pain?

Before your appointment, take time to consider your answers to these questions. Being prepared can expedite the diagnosis process.
