What is Halitosis?

Halitosis, commonly referred to as bad breath, can be a source of embarrassment and cause self-confidence issues, but it may also be a symptom of a larger health problem. In most cases, Halitosis is caused by bacteria in the mouth that produce sulfur. In normal instances, these bacteria live on the surface of the tongue and in the throat.

However, in the case of halitosis sufferers, they break down proteins at a very high rate, and odorous volatile sulfur compounds (VSC) are caused which results in bad breath. It is estimated that 2.4% of the adult population in the United States suffers from halitosis.

There are many possible causes of halitosis, some more serious than others, including:

  • Gum disease or poor oral hygiene
  • Dry mouth – caused by medicines, alcohol, stress or a medical condition
  • Smoking – which starves the mouth of oxygen
  • Acid and bile reflux from the stomach
  • Post-nasal discharge
  • Kidney failure
  • Various carcinomas
  • Metabolic dysfunctions
  • Biochemical disorders

Although most cases of halitosis are not serious, the condition can, in some cases, be a symptom of a larger problem. If bad breath is affecting your life, the team at Roseville Topsmiles can help. Our caring and understanding dentist will get to the root of the problem and have you feeling confident and healthy in no time.
