A part of society that should not be underestimated suffers from bad breath. Since people cannot perceive their own bad breath, this is all the worse for those affected. Halitosis can have a negative impact on social life and, if not treated, can also reduce the quality of life.

Halitosis can have many causes. The largest proportion lies in the dental field. The bacterial decomposition of food residues in the mouth produces foul-smelling substances. The bacteria are mainly found on dental plaque and niches, leaking fillings, carious lesions, bad dentures, inflamed gum pockets, inflamed wisdom teeth and not infrequently on the back of the tongue.

Where can bad breath come from in children?

Bad breath in children is not necessarily related to poor dental hygiene. If necessary, other causes should also be looked for here.

Sometimes, for example, drinking too little (sugar-free beverages) is important to eliminate all bacteria from the mouth.

Acute illnesses (e.g., colds) can also lead to bad breath in children. Therefore, if necessary, also raise the issue with your pediatrician.

What dental care do you recommend for bad breath?

If you are affected by bad breath, comprehensive dental and oral care is important.

In addition to regular brushing of the teeth with a toothbrush and other instruments such as dental floss or interdental brushes, you should also pay attention to the cleanliness of your tongue. For this purpose, so-called tongue scraper brushes or tongue brushes are offered, for example. These can easily remove bacteria, which is often a good remedy for bad breath.
