In fact, halitosis is not a disease, but caused by poor oral health. Now most people have developed good oral hygiene habits, but still can not get rid of the problem of halitosis. Not often brushing teeth, gargling and eating spicy food for a long time will cause the occurrence of halitosis. The occurrence of halitosis will not only make patients have peculiar smell when breathing, but also seriously affect the life and social interaction of patients. So, what causes halitosis? Let’s introduce it to you.
First of all, halitosis may be caused by oral diseases, such as oral ulcer, gingivitis, periodontitis, gingival bleeding, alveolar purulence, a large number of stones or dirt, or food impaction. The residual food in the deep hole is decomposed and fermented by bacteria, thus producing an unpleasant odor.
It’s a direct reaction to find out the body’s problems through peculiar smell, so friends must be vigilant. Some gastrointestinal phenomena are also ignored by different people. Serious gastric diseases, such as stomach cancer and gastric ulcer, together with poor esophageal sealing, will be accompanied by persistent halitosis.
In addition, in addition to the most direct oral diseases, some systemic diseases can not be ignored. Generally speaking, the breath of some diabetics is fruity, the breath of patients with renal failure is fishy, and the mouth of patients with cirrhosis is brimstone.
Many people suffer from periodontitis in their mouth. If they don’t pay attention to the timely treatment, it will easily lead to halitosis. Halitosis will affect our life and social life. Therefore, people with periodontitis must pay attention to the treatment of periodontitis to prevent halitosis.
