					Bad Breath- How to Cure Bad Breath from
Periodontitis
Periodontitis is an advanced tooth disease. It is usually caused by poor oral hygiene. Periodontitis refers
to the group of inflammatory diseases affecting the tissues that surround and support the teeth. When
left untreated, Periodontitis can result in the loss of the bone around teeth which may lead to loosening
and eventual loss of teeth.

How does Periodontitis come about?
When we eat, bits of food get lodged between our teeth, at the gum line, and in other little nooks and
crannies in our mouths. This food is an excellent bait for bacteria and germs. Without any proper oral
care, a sticky coating called 'plaque' will soon form on our teeth at the gum line and below the gum
line. In a matter of just 24 hours, this plaque will harden and turn into tartar.

When that happens, it will be quite impossible for us to remove the tartar build up through normal
home oral care. The only person who can remove tartar effectively is your dentist. This build up of
bacterial plaque and tartar is known as Gingivitis. Gingivitis will cause teeth to become more sensitive.
Common symptom of Gingivitis include easily irritated gums that bleed easily when brushing.

If Gingivitis is left untreated, it will turn into Periodontitis. With this disease, it is normal for someone
to lose their teeth. The gums recede from the teeth, causing 'pockets.' These pockets can contain other
bits of food and bacteria. This is the reason that people develop bad breath from Periodontitis. The
decaying food that is hiding in the pockets around and below the gum line cause bacteria to form,
which in turn causes bad breath.

How do treat Periodontitis?
The number one way to cure bad breath from periodontitis is to get the disease taken care of. There are
several ways to handle bad breath that is related to this disease as well. You should know that
prevention is the best method. If you notice traces of blood while you are brushing your teeth, sensitive
gums, or bleeding gums, you may have Gingivitis. Gingivitis is easily curable before it turns into
Periodontitis. Brushing daily, flossing, and using mouth wash is a great way to prevent Periodontitis.

If you are already experiencing bad breath from Periodontitis, there are some things that you can do.
Make sure that you brush your teeth after every meal and before you go to bed. This will keep the
bacteria from taking complete control of your mouth. You also want to floss every single day. Brushing
our teeth cannot remove all of the particles of food and bacteria from between our teeth like flossing
can. Also, use a good mouth wash that is designed to prevent or help Gingivitis.

It is important to speak with your dentist if you think you may have Periodontits. There are ways that
he can help you treat it, and speaking with him will help you both determine the best method for
treatment. If you do not treat Periodontitis, there is a good chance that you will lose your teeth. Another
thing you can do for bad breath is to invest in a tongue scraper. By cleaning bacteria from the back of
the tongue, you can greatly reduce bad breath.
