Bad Breath Can Be a Symptom of Oral Health Issues


Posted on 7/23/2017 by Allan Hablutzel
Ask Pacific Ave. Dental if you have any questions about your bad breath.
There are quite a few oral health issues that can come up in a person's life. Most of them show some type of symptom. One of the most common symptoms of problems with your oral health is having bad breath. If you didn't brush your teeth one morning and you have bad breath, that is not quite the same. However, if you made sure to brush, floss, and rinse with mouthwash that morning, and you still have bad breath, it is time to go in and see your dentist.

What Bad Breath Can Point To

The most common oral health problem that comes with bad breath is gum disease. It is an inflammation within your gums that must be treated by your dentist and your periodontist to help restore your mouth to a healthy state.

Bad breath can also come from an infection, such as having strep throat or having a dental abscess. If you have a sore throat, a toothache, or another part of your head that hurts, along with a fever, chances are, you have some type of an infection right in or around your mouth.

Cavities can also cause bad breath. Once the cavity breeches the surface of your tooth, it will begin to stink in a way others can notice. A cavity is decay within the tooth. Once it breaks through the surface of the tooth, that smell becomes far more potent.

If you notice that you have bad breath that simply won’t go away, then you need to see your dentist. Let them look around your mouth and figure out what the problem is. They can then treat the problem to help restore the health of your mouth plus rid you of the bad breath at the same time.
