HOW TO GET RID OF YOUR BAD BREATH NATURALLY

Halitosis or oral malodour is medical terminology for bad breath. Most of us have experienced this in the early morning immediately after we wake up. But, sometimes due to certain reasons, the foul odour persists. Here we will know about the causes, symptoms, treatment.

WHAT CAUSES BAD BREATH?

There is a wide range of causes for halitosis. Some of them are:

Poor oral hygiene

 This is the most common cause as we think brushing is enough to maintain good oral health. But that is not the only thing that keeps your breath minty fresh. The food we eat sometimes adheres on to the tongue. Most of us forget to clean the tongue regularly. About 70% of the bad breath is due to poor cleaning of the tongue.

Dry mouth

Dry mouth can be caused by various underlying health conditions like diabetes, also as an adverse effect of certain drugs. As the saliva helps in keeping our oral cavity clean, its absence leads to the accumulation of food particles in the spaces between the teeth and thus causing the bad breath.

Systemic conditions

 Some health issues like liver malfunction, lung conditions like lung cancer, bronchiectasis, upper respiratory infections, etc. Also, some kidney diseases also cause oral malodour due to release of certain metabolites. Other conditions like sinusitis, postnasal drip, tonsillitis(stones in the tonsils), etc also cause bad breath.

Food intake

Foods containing onion, garlic, and some spices also lead to bad breath for a short period.

Habits

 Habits like smoking and drinking alcohol, cause malodour as they contain certain components that lead to decreased salivary production, in turn, causing halitosis.

Food impaction

 It means that whatever you eat gets stuck in the cavities of your teeth if any or else in the spaces between your teeth if your gums have receded.

HOW TO TREAT

BAD BREATH

(HALITOSIS)?

The treatment of halitosis as of now is not well defined. Following some of the steps below will help reduce the bad breath to some extent:

  •         Brushing twice daily.
  •         Flossing once daily.
  •         Using mouth rinses with hydrogen peroxide, chlorhexidine, etc.
  •         Thorough rinsing of the mouth after each meal.
  •         Most importantly, diagnosing the underlying systemic diseases if any is necessary
  •         Do not forget to visit your dentist once in 6 months for general scaling and polishing.

ROLE OF MOUTHWASH IN HALITOSIS:

Mouthwashes are one of the most useful remedies in treating halitosis/bad breath. Those mouthwashes containing chlorhexidine help in killing the bacteria in your mouth which cause the foul smell. Thus using it regularly, helps in reducing the bad breath.

AYURVEDIC OR HOME REMEDY FOR BAD BREATH:

  •         Rinse your mouth regularly with warm salt water along with a pinch of turmeric.
  •         Chew few cardamom seeds or anise seeds once a day.
  •         Include yoghurt in your diet every day as it is a rich source of probiotic bacteria which helps in reducing the load of malodour causing bacteria in your mouth and also your gut.
  •         Water is the most important yet most ignored medicine for bad breath. Drinking adequate amount of water as per your BMI helps clear the mouth of minute food particles stuck in between the teeth and also the gut, thus helping in the prevention of bad breath from the stomach.
  •         Rinsing with mint water gives a feeling of fresh breath and it stays for longer hours. Boil 5-10 mint leaves in 500 ml of water and use this mint water first thing in the morning and as many times as possible in the day.

Method of Study

A study was done in Korea with two COVID-19 Patients, from the day 1-9 in hospital several specimens were taken the nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal region using polyester flocked swabs, saliva and sputum samples also were collected and placed in separate tubes with virus transport medium.

On days 3 and 6, chlorhexidine gluconate solution mouthwash (0.12%, 15 mL) was done for 30 seconds after baseline specimen sampling on saliva and sputum samples. The same method of samples was collected to at 0 hours before mouthwash, 1 hour, 2nd hour, and 4th hour. 

SARS-CoV-2 rRT-PCR 

The presence of SARS-CoV-2 was confirmed by real-time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCR). RNA was extracted from the clinical samples using NucliSENS easyMAG platform (bioMérieux, Marcy-l’Étoile, France). rRT-PCR was performed using CFX96 real-time PCR detection system (Bio-rad, Hercules, CA, USA) and PowerChek 2019- nCoV real-time PCR kit (Kogenebiotech, Seoul, Korea), which targeted the E and RdRP genes of SARS-CoV-2. The primer and probe sequences were designed according to the previous study.7 The sample was defined as negative if the cycle threshold (Ct) value exceeded 35 cycles. Details regarding the rRT-PCR protocol are provided in the Supplementary Appendix. The RNA copy number was calculated from the Ct values using the standard curve generated by dilution of the plasmid DNA. 

Ethics statement 

This study was approved by the Institutional Review Board of Korea University Guro Hospital (approval number: 2020GR0123). Informed consent was waived.

Result

The viral load in saliva decreased for first 2 hrs after using chlorhexidine gluconate solution mouthwash (0.12%, 15 mL), but increased back to normal from 2hrs to 4hrs duration.

Dental implants are medicated equipment used to replace, feel, and function like natural teeth. Its the latest trend on replacing missing teeth without getting the support from the adjacent teeth. Every year there are approximately five hundred thousand people getting dental implants done and over three million people had dental implants to date.

 

The post-operative care is always essential for all procedures, dental implants are not exceptional. Dental implants do need maintenance on daily basis just like natural teeth and good maintenance protocol follow up will always result in high longevity of the structure.

Visiting dentist once in six months is very essential as the dentist have unique equipment to clean thoroughly around the implant to eliminate any debris, plaque which causes viral and bacterial accumulation. These viral and bacteria will cause resorption of bone around the implant and may loosen the implant, to eliminate this problem it’s mandatory to visit your dentist at least once in six months. The cost of cleaning is inexpensive comparing to the cost of cleaning natural teeth.

How to take care of the implants at home?

Its very simple, just follow the list mentioned below to maintain healthy intraoral implant hygiene.

Use low abrasive toothpaste: some toothpaste may contain abrasives which will slowly erode the smooth polished layer of the implant which will cause plaque and bacterial accumulation. Its always do some research before buying toothpaste or ask your dentist for the best one. The toothpaste must not below 250 RDA (Relative Dentin Abrasivity ).

RDA is a measurement to find the abrasive effect of the toothpaste in the teeth.

how to clean dental implants

Soft-bristle brush: do use a soft or ultra-soft bristle toothbrush to brush your teeth and do not give high pressure on the implant teeth, brush twice daily to get the maximum results.

Use intraoral irrigator: this is a tool used as in the dental office to clean interdental space with a high-pressure water jet. This works as a dental floss to clean the plaque and debris around the teeth. This is also called waterfloss or waterpick.

water floss

Use Interdental brush: always remember to use nylon coated interdental brush to clean the tough regions present between the teeth or you can use super floss dipped in chlohex mouthwash to prevent retention of bacteria.

intrdental brush

In spite of several challenges dental implants are still the successful replacement of missing teeth, the above-mentioned cleansing instructions are mandatory to avoid peri-implantitis, a disease that can affect the lifetime of dental implants.

Poor dental hygiene and severity of Corona virus


British researchers Victoria Sampson a general dentist from a dental practice 38 Devonshire Street, London, Nawar Kamona from the Centre for Nutrition Education & Lifestyle Management (CNELM), London and Ariane Sampson from Orthodontics, Cambridge University Hospital Trust, United Kingdom combined to find the severity of COVID-19 severity in poor oral hygiene patients. Their study titled, “Could there be a link between oral hygiene and the severity of SARS-CoV-2 infections?” was published in the latest issue of the journal British Dental Journal.

The world health organization declared a global emergency on January 30th, 2020 due to an increase in the number of cases of COVID-19, this is also known as SARS-CoV-2 or novel coronavirus infection.

So much research has been done to date to know the risk factors associated with the disease, they say many patients have been recovered without any complications but some may need hospitalization, oxygen supplementation, and even ventilation. A few risk factors associated to increase the viral infection are high blood pressure, diabetes obesity, and heart disease.

The researchers wrote, “We explore the connection between high bacterial load in the mouth and post-viral complications, and how improving oral health may reduce the risk of complications from COVID-19”. They did research on the severity of the virus on patients with poor oral hygiene.

The authors wrote that during lung infection, there is a risk of oral secretions getting into the lungs, which could cause infection. Few of the bacteria present in the mouth that could cause such lung infections to include “Porphyromonas gingivalis, Fusobacterium nucleatum, Prevotella intermedia,”.Actually periodontitis or infection of the gums is one of the most prevalent causes of harmful bacteria in the mouth. These bacteria lead to the formation of cytokines such as Interleukin 1 (IL1) and Tumor necrosis factor (TNF), which can be detected in the saliva and can reach the lungs leading to infection within them. Thus, the researchers wrote, “inadequate oral hygiene can increase the risk of inter-bacterial exchanges between the lungs and the mouth, increasing the risk of respiratory infections and potentially post-viral bacterial complications.”

The result reveals that poor oral hygiene is not directly associated with COVID-19, but it reduces the associated risk factor of the virus such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. The authors wrote that “Good oral hygiene has been recognized as a means to prevent airway infections in patients, especially in those over the age of 70”,25% raised the risk of heart disease, thrice the risk of getting diabetes, and 20% raised the risk of getting high blood pressure.
