Having clean, fresh breath does boost your confidence and self-esteem. Unfortunately, what is happening on the inside of your body or stomach can affect your breath.
As such, it is important to improve your gut health to minimize any instance of embarrassing dental hygiene issues. Today, as your Calgary SE dentist, I will share a few tips and highlight how bi-annual cleanings also factor into having better breath.
How Gut Health Can Connect To Your Breath
There are any number of reasons why you might develop bad breath. Some of those might include:
- Mouth sores
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
- Food lodged in teeth
- Surgical wounds
- Bacteria infected stones in your tonsils
- Gut bacteria i.e. H.Pylori
The H. Pylori can become a disruptive factor in your stomach if it increases to disproportionate numbers. When they do, the chances of developing ulcers increase as well.
Duodenal ulcers can then lead to bad breath and be an indication of what is known as dysbiosis. Improving your gut health and avoiding this is typically done by changing the foods you eat.
