Causes of unpleasant odor

If, in addition to bad breath, you feel discomfort in the abdominal area, you need to consult a gastroenterologist. In the absence of unpleasant sensations in the stomach, the reason most likely lies in oral hygiene.

The importance of oral hygiene

In addition to home brushing of teeth, it is necessary to consult a dentist every six months, since you will not be able to remove the tartar yourself. It accumulates in hard-to-reach places, contributing to the accumulation of a soft plaque that causes bad breath.

Proper dental cleaning technique

It is very important to clean the plaque properly! The toothbrush should be soft or medium-hard. Effective cleaning is possible only with sweeping movements with a brush: from the gum to the edge of the tooth, on the lower jaw from the bottom up, and on the upper jaw from top to bottom. The inner surfaces of the teeth must be thoroughly cleaned with the same movements.

Using an irrigator

However, brushing your teeth alone is not enough to eliminate bad breath. There is always a soft plaque and food residues in the gaps between the teeth. These residues begin to smell unpleasant within an hour after their appearance in the oral cavity. The bristles of the toothbrush do not penetrate into the gaps between the teeth, and dental floss removes only large food residues, but not soft plaque. Therefore, it is important to use an irrigator after each tooth brushing!

Only the combination of a toothbrush and an irrigator allows you to achieve an ideal condition of the oral cavity and eliminate the main cause of the unpleasant odor — accumulated plaque.

Cleaning the tongue and using mouthwashes

Another cause of bad breath is plaque on the tongue. After using the irrigator, it is important to clean the surface of the tongue. On many toothbrushes, the reverse side is designed to clean the tongue. And, of course, it is necessary to use mouthwashes after each tooth brushing.

Only with the right approach to personal oral hygiene will you be able to forget about such a problem as an unpleasant odor.
