The Dreaded Bad Breath

mouth111

One of the most embarrassing conditions you can have is bad breath or halitosis. Although the problem is quite common with one in four people having bad breath quite regularly, it can still keep you from being socially active, cause trouble for you at work/ school or simply give you a great deal of stress and anxiety. Learn more about bad breath and arm yourself with the right knowledge to combat it effectively.

What is it Bad Breath?

Bad breath or halitosis is, simply put, a condition where your breath smells very unpleasant. When you talk or yawn, this odor may be very evident to people who are close by, causing them to avoid standing or sitting near you. Bad breath can cause many socially awkward situations both for you and for those around you. It can affect people of both genders, at any age, and it can impact a person’s career, social interactions, and self-esteem quite dramatically, which is why eliminating the problem should be a priority activity.

The innumerable breath mints, sprays and mouthwashes that you find lining supermarket shelves tell you how common this problem is and how keen people are to keep halitosis at bay. However, these products only offer temporary solutions to combat the symptoms by masking the bad odor for a short while.

Symptoms of Bad Breath

The most evident symptom of halitosis is foul smelling breath, white or yellow coating on the tongue, dry mouth and a metallic, bitter or sour taste in your mouth. The problem is that you may be completely unaware that your breath smells bad until someone actually points it out to you. If you suspect that you have this problem, ask a friend or relative if they can smell the foul odor from your mouth when you talk or yawn when they are nearby. Since it is often a delicate issue for people to point out when someone has bad breath, a better test would be to do it yourself. Lick your wrist with the back of your tongue and smell the area after it dries. If you can detect a bad odor, then you probably have bad breath.

Causes of Bad Breath

The causes of bad breath are many but poor oral hygiene is usually the main culprit. When you allow bacteria to build up in your mouth, they break down the food remnants in your mouth, releasing foul-smelling gas while doing so. Even simple measures such as brushing twice a day or using a mouthwash to rinse out after brushing can help combat bad breath quite effectively. Gum disease could also cause halitosis and so can strong smelling foods like garlic and onions. Heavy smokers often find their breath reeks, and so do those who drink heavily.

Here are a few other contributors of Bad Breath:

  • High Protein Foods (milk, cheese and most other dairy products)
  • Hindered air or mucus flow
  • Nasal Polyps
  • Sinusitis (sinus infection)
  • Post Nasal Drip
  • Dry Mouth
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Throat or tonsil infection

Tip to help with Bad Breath

  • However, even those who follow good dental hygiene may develop halitosis after a sickness or due to some medications. In this case, the bad breath problem may, fortunately, be a temporary occurrence.
  • Brush and floss more frequently
  • Drink plenty of liquids
  • Avoid foods such as onions and garlic as substances they contain make their way into your bloodstream and travel to your lungs, where you breathe them out
  • Eat sugarless candy, chew sugarless gum or drink water to stop your mouth from drying out
  • Eat a carrot, a stick of celery or an apple to speed up saliva flow between meals which helps wash away bacteria from teeth, tongue and gums that can cause bad breath
  • Eating breakfast helps get the saliva flowing and cleans the mouth
  • Chew on parsley, mint, cloves or fennel seeds for ± one to two minutes if your mouth feels dry, this acts as a known breath deodorize.

What is Post Nasal Drip?

Post Nasal Drip TreatmentIn an abbreviated form, Post Nasal Drip is also called PND. Post Nasal Drip is a condition where the nasal mucosa (mucous lining in the nasal cavity) releases access mucous, which if not expelled accumulates in the back of the nose or throat. The presence of mucus in abundance causes a feeling of dripping down the back of the throat, congestion in the throat, itching of the throat, coughing, and a constant need to clear the throat.

Nasal mucosa releases mucus to keep nasal cavities moist to trap foreign particles like dust, pollen and any other foreign matter. When foreign particles are not filtered through the nose and enters into the respiratory system they can cause severe respiratory problems. Mucus assists in combating such respiratory problems but when excess nasal mucosa is released it is called Post Nasal Drip or Upper Airway Cough Syndrome.

The accumulation of mucus in the back of the throat and nose may also cause swelling and bleeding in the nose (nasal cavity). A person suffering from Post Nasal Drip often feels the need to drain the excess mucus, which feels like they have a cold, but in fact, this is not cold.

Symptoms of Post Nasal Drip may include the following:

  • Excessive Coughing
  • A constant need to clear one’s throat
  • Halitosis (bad breath)
  • An excessively sore throat that is not caused by a cold
  • Nausea or vomiting

If Post Nasal Drip is left untreated, it could lead to other more serious conditions such as an ear infection or bronchitis.

A Person suffering from Post Nasal Drip may also complain about having Halitosis (bad breath) due to mucus being high in protein. Bad breath can be easily treated if it is caused by Post Nasal Drip. By controlling mucus production, bad breath is eliminated.
