We received a few remarks regarding Tooth Suds not being as minty as toothpaste. Many people are happy about this. However, some are worried that this can cause “bad breath.” If you do brush your teeth and maintain excellent dental hygiene and a good diet, the choice you make in toothpaste (or toothpaste) isn’t going to cause or prevent an unpleasant smell… However, excessively minty toothpaste could be concealing other problems.
Bad breath can be divided into two categories (based on what causes it): genuine and non-genuine.
Non-authentic bad breath can be described as the breath you have in the morning, or it is a distinct smell after eating garlic tuna or other food items. It’s also possible to think that you have bad breath, but no one else notices it.
True bad breath is a physical affliction. In the cases of genuine instances that are caused by bad breath, around 15% originate from the mouth, whereas the remainder is due to problems in the rest of the body. Chronic bad breath is also known by the medical term “Halitosis” and is something that mouthwash, mints, or even a thorough brushing won’t resolve.
Problems in the mouth cause bad breath
- Dental Decay
- Interdental Food Packing: food being pushed between your teeth
- Acrylic dentures made of plastic or false teeth
- Oral Infections
- Dry mouth
- Mouth, Nose, and Throat infections
- Menstrual Cycle
- Volatile Foods – garlic, onions, cabbage, etc.
The cause of bad breath is a problem with the outside of the mouth.
There are a few medical conditions that could produce bad breath, but they are not common among the general population.
- Gastric Reflux
- Liver Disease
- Kidney infections and Kidney failure
- Lower respiratory tract infection (bronchial or lung diseases)
- Carcinoma (a kind of cancer)
- Trimethylaminuria (fish odor syndrome)
- Metabolic conditions that cause elevated dimethyl sulfide levels in the blood.
- Ketoacidosis (an accumulation of acids inside your blood)
What can I do if my mouth is swollen? Bad breath? *
Before you do anything, talk to your dentist or physician to determine the reason. It is not advisable to avoid any form of chronic bad breath because of medical issues that might be present.
To get a general, non-natural bad breath, here are some options for you to consider:
- Make sure to brush your teeth after eating
- Floss at minimum once a day
- Cleanse your tongue
- Clean dentures or other dental appliances daily
- Do not irritate your mouth.
- Change your diet and avoid foods that can cause bad breath.
- Make sure you change your toothbrush frequently (and make sure to clean your toothbrush as well).
- Schedule regular dental checkups.
Problems with bad breath are real and can affect anywhere from 6 to 50 percent of the population. The fear of smelly breath ranks as the 3rd most frequent reason for people to seek dental attention (after tooth decay and gum disease). It’s viewed as uncool and socially unacceptable. Living in the United States spends more than $1 billion a year on mouthwash to treat the issue.
Be aware that over-the-counter minty toothpaste and mouthwashes mask the signs of bad breath but do not solve the issue that causes it. The majority of the time, bad breath can be avoided by maintaining healthy dental hygiene. Although it is not dangerous, it could be a result of a medical issue that requires treatment. Before all else, consult your dentist about the problems you are experiencing and provide a complete medical history as well as the medications and supplements you’re taking. This will assist in determining if the problem is specific to the mouth or may be a more generalized issue, and in that case, the doctor should be checked out.
