Bad breath and feces


Bad breath can also be named as halitosis. It is basically unpleasant, distinctive, or offensive. While feces are the waste matter that are eliminated from the bowels or in other words we can say that it is the excrement. Some of the disorders in the human body produce specific and characteristic odors to the breath. A fruity odor to the breath occurs as the body attempts to get rid of excess acetone through the breathing. This is a characteristic sign of ketoacidosis, which may occur in diabetes, and is a potentially life-threatening condition. A fecal odor to the breath can occur with prolonged vomiting, especially when there is a bowel obstruction. It may also occur temporarily if a person has a nasogastric tube i.e. a tube placed through the nose or mouth to the stomach to drain the stomach contents, in place. The breath may have an ammonia-like odor in people with chronic kidney failure.

More of the bad breath and its causes

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, may go far beyond a tinge of garlic or onions. Like other types of body odor, many forms of halitosis are the handiwork of bacteria. When the germs that live in the mouth break down food particles and other debris, they often foul the air with highly pungent chemicals. Hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan, and other compounds most often associated with bad breath are known in the dental trade as volatile sulfur compounds. Microbes that often live on bits of food that cling to the back of the tongue or get stuck between teeth produce these odor-causing compounds. They can also thrive in the pockets between the gum and tooth, particularly if you have serious or even mild gum disease.

Conclusion

Bacteria also tend to do extremely well in mouths that don't produce enough saliva to rinse away food particles. And if you have postnasal drip from chronic allergies or sinusitis, mucus can collect on the back of your tongue and provide rations for an army of bacteria. Clean mouth is the best defense against bad breath. See a dentist regularly, floss between your teeth every day, and brush with a fluoride toothpaste two to three times each day. And don't neglect your tongue, especially the back section. By brushing it gently with a toothbrush or using a plastic tongue scraper, also gently, you can deprive bacteria of a prime breeding ground. Go slowly and you'll learn to avoid the gag reflex. Finally, have your teeth cleaned professionally by a dental hygienist every six months.
