Masalah Mulut Berbau

Kebersihan oral atasi mulut berbau

Saya mengalami masalah halitosis (mulut berbau) yang amat ketara, walaupun saya sudah membuat berbagai rawatan. Saya menggosok gigi dan lidah setiap kali lepas makan. Saya juga membuat pemeriksaan gigi secara teratur, saya mengelakkan makanan yang mengundang bau seperti petai.

Baunya amat busuk walaupun melalui pernafasan, saya amat malu dan tertekan dan jarang bersosial disebabkan masalah ini.

Untuk pengetahuan doktor saya menghidap penyakit resdung, iaitu gatal-gatal hidung apabila terkena habuk, apabila digosok pada hidung ada terasa seperti bau nanah. Saya ingin penjelasan doktor. Terima kasih.

JAWAPAN,

Nafas atau mulut berbau (Halitosis) boleh disebabkan oleh masalah yang berpunca dari bahagian hidung, sinus, tekak, gigi, ruang mulut, paru-paru mahupun dari perut. Semua bahagian ini ada bersangkut-paut dengan ruang pernafasan.

AN telah membuat perkara yang betul iaitu membuat pemeriksaan gigi dan mengamalkan pembersihan oral yang memadai. Oleh kerana masalah halitosis itu berterusan, saya berpendapat masalah AN mungkin berpunca dari bahagian hidung ataupun sinus.

Sinus adalah ruang kosong di bahagian tengkorak yang berkomunikasi dengan ruang hidung. Apabila ruang sinus ini dijangkiti oleh kuman, kahak kuning atau kehijauan akan mengalir ke ruang hidung lalu menitis ke belakang tekak (post nasal drip).

Ini akan membawa kepada pelbagai masalah dari sakit kepala, hidung tersumbat, sakit tekak, serak suara mahupun nafas berbau.

Rinitis ialah istilah yang menyatakan bengkak pada tisu bahagian hidung (inflamasi atau radang pada membran mukus di hidung) yang boleh menyebabkan gatal-gatal hidung dan bersin. Ia sama ada disebabkan oleh alahan ataupun infeksi pada mana-mana bahagian hidung atau rongga sinus. Post nasal drip boleh disebabkan oleh rinitis itu sendiri.

Saya ingin menasihat AN supaya berjumpa seorang pakar ENT supaya pemeriksaan sinus melalui endoskopi dan rawatan sewajarnya dapat diberikan. Ini beasar kemungkinan akan dapat menghilangkan masaalah halitosis AN.

    Bad breath, also called halitosis, can be an embarrassing problem. It can be caused by the foods you eat, dry mouth, tobacco products, or a medical disorder. Maintaining proper oral health can help reduce or eliminate bad breath.

    Bad Breath Causes

    Bad breath (halitosis) can be caused by a variety of things including diet, medication, poor oral hygiene, and diseases or conditions such as diabetes, GERD, lactose intolerance, gum disease, and more. Treatment for bad breath depends on the cause.

    There are many things that can cause bad breath, including the following:

    Diet

    •When a person does not brush or floss their teeth thoroughly, food particles may remain in the mouth. These particles may rot and cause foul odors. In addition, food particles over time can promote the growth of bacteria, which can also cause foul odors. The bacteria can also lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

    •Foods with strong odors also affect the air a person exhales. Foods commonly known to contribute to bad breath include onions and garlic, exotic spices (such as curry), some cheeses, fish, and acidic beverages such as coffee. Foods are absorbed into the bloodstream and then transferred to the lungs, causing noticeable odors when exhaled. These foods may also cause gastrointestinal upset and belching, which can contribute to bad breath. In addition, certain supplements such as fish oil capsules can contribute to bad breath.

    •Low carbohydrate diets may also cause what is known as ‘ketone breath.’ So-called ‘low carb’ diets cause the body to burn fat as its energy source. The end-product of making this energy are ketones, which cause a fruity acetone-like odor on the breath when exhaled.
    Dry Mouth

    •Bad breath can also be caused by decreased flow of saliva, which is a vital part of the digestive process and removes odor-causing particles in the mouth. Also called xerostomia, dry mouth may be caused by medications, breathing through the mouth, or salivary gland problems.
    Tobacco Products

    •In addition to causing bad breath, smoking or chewing tobacco-based products can stain teeth, irritate gum tissue, and exacerbate tooth decay.
    Medical Disorders

    Certain medical disorders may cause bad breath, for example:

    •gum or periodontal infection,

    •throat infection (pharyngitis or tonsillitis),

    •local infection in the respiratory tract,

    •chronic sinusitis and/or post-nasal drip,

    •chronic bronchitis,

    •diabetes,

    •gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD),

    •liver or kidney disease,

    •Sjogren’s syndrome (causes xerostomia), and

    •lactose intolerance.
    Dentures or Dental Appliances

    •Dentures or dental appliances, such as braces, can contribute to bad breath. Most often it is due to food particles that are not properly cleansed from the appliances. Loose-fitting dentures can contribute to sores and localized infections in the mouth, which can cause bad breath.
    Morning Breath

    •Overnight, bacteria accumulate in the mouth, causing bad breath that is commonly referred to as ‘morning breath.’ Some people breathe through their mouth at night, which can cause dry mouth and worsen morning breath.

    Bad Breath Symptoms

    Many individuals with bad breath may be unaware they have it, or their symptoms may only be temporary. The odor often depends upon the source or underlying cause of the bad breath.

    Some common symptoms of bad breath include:

    •bad breath smell,

    •bad taste or taste changes,

    •dry mouth, and

    •a coating on the tongue.

    Most causes of bad breath are due to inadequate oral hygiene and are rarely life-threatening. If good oral hygiene practices do not eliminate the bad breath, see a dental professional. In most cases, a dentist can treat the cause of bad breath.

    An individual should consult their physician if they have:

    •persistent dry mouth,

    •sores in the mouth,

    •pain with chewing or swallowing,

    •white spots on the tonsils,

    •fever,

    •just started a new medication,

    •had recent dental surgery, or

    •any other symptoms that are of concern.
    Bad breath in babies or young children may be a sign of infection or undiagnosed medical problems. Consult the child’s doctor or dentist if an infant or young child has bad breath.
