One of my colleagues often has a sense of inferiority in close communication, because he knows that he has serious halitosis, and has been looking for the cause of halitosis. Later, he went to the hospital for examination. The doctor thought that his bad breath was caused by cavities. Doctors say unclean mouth, tartar and cavities are the most direct causes of halitosis. So the doctor suggested that my colleague should treat the caries first, and the halitosis would be naturally better. Here are some general precautions:
The doctor said that patients with halitosis must keep their mouth clean, which is very important. Usually, they should brush their teeth after meals, keep their teeth clean, and prevent food residues and the breeding of moths. And it’s better not to eat before going to bed. If you eat, you should also remember to brush your teeth.
In addition, the doctor also suggested that my colleagues could drink a cup of light warm salt boiled water on an empty stomach every morning, which could regulate gastrointestinal function and help eliminate halitosis. Oral vitamin C tablets are also a good way to chew gum, use Chinese herbal toothpaste, chew tea, etc. also have a certain effect on eliminating halitosis.
The doctor also said: patients must go to the hospital regularly for examination. If necessary, they need to have tooth filling surgery, which can prevent the expansion of caries, the pain and necrosis of teeth. And this can effectively eliminate the bad breath caused by tooth decay.
It is suggested that patients often take part in physical exercise and check their oral cavity regularly. Generally, people over 12 years old should check their oral cavity once a year. They should eat more nutritious foods such as calcium and inorganic salt in their diet, and eat high fiber coarse food as much as possible.
