What is halitosis (bad breath)?

Halitosis is a medical term for chronic bad breath. Unlike a temporary unpleasant smell caused by foods (such as eating garlic) or certain drinks, halitosis persists over time and may indicate an underlying dental or medical issue.

Chronic bad breath, lasting beyond just a garlicky meal or other stinky food type, may be cause for concern. It could indicate an underlying health condition or gum disease.

What causes bad breath?

Many different things can cause bad breath, including:

  • Poor dental hygiene leads to food debris, bacterial growth, plaque buildup, infection and disease
  • Gum disease or tooth decay
  • Dry mouth or not enough saliva production
  • Certain foods, smoking, and alcohol consumption
  • Medical conditions like diabetes, chronic sinusitis, or gastrointestinal issues

Your periodontist or dentist can identify the cause of your halitosis and recommend the best treatment for you.

Signs and symptoms of halitosis can include persistent bad morning breath, thick saliva, ongoing bad taste or a white-coated tongue.

What are the signs and symptoms of bad breath?

Bad breath, or chronic halitosis, can present several noticeable signs, including:

  • White coated tongue: Often more pronounced towards the back of the tongue
  • Dry mouth: A feeling of dryness or a lack of adequate saliva
  • Plaque build-up: Accumulation of plaque and food particles around the teeth
  • Post-nasal drip: Presence of mucus from sinus drainage
  • Morning bad breath: A common occurrence, along with a burning sensation on the tongue
  • Thick saliva: Accompanied by a frequent need to clear the throat
  • Persistent unpleasant taste: Ongoing sour, bitter, or metallic taste in the mouth

How is halitosis diagnosed?

Diagnosis begins with discussing your symptoms and health before a comprehensive oral examination to identify any dental causes of bad breath. In some cases, additional tests may be recommended to rule out medical conditions. Your dentist or periodontist may refer you to a specialist or GP to investigate these potential medical conditions.

How is bad breath treatment carried out?

Treatment to fight bad breath depends on the underlying cause. There are a range of bad breath treatment options, focused on oral health:

  • Professional cleaning to remove odour-causing bacteria in your mouth
  • Treatment for gum disease or tooth decay
  • Advice and products for improving poor oral hygiene practices
  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste
  • Solutions for managing dry mouth, such as artificial saliva or medicated mouth rinse
  • Referral to medical professionals if related to systemic health issues
  • Eating healthy foods
  • Chew gum between meals
  • Visit a periodontist or dentist regularly to monitor your oral health

Our friendly periodontists can identify the cause and tailor a bad breath treatment plan for your needs.
