Does Gum Disease Smell?

Posted on 4/1/2024 by Weo Admin
a close up of a mouth with inflamed gumsBad mouth smell is one of the main symptoms of gum disease. The plaques on the teeth that cause gum disease are made up of saliva and food particles containing amino acids, starch, and sugar. These plaques attract the bacteria responsible for periodontitis, which interacts with the food to form an acid that smells bad. You can notice a sulfur or rotten eggs smell immediately after the gingivitis symptoms appear.

Is Bad Breath Always a Sign of Periodontal Disease?


Unpleasant breath from the mouth does not always mean you have gum disease. Sometimes, acid reflux from the stomach after eating meals like dairy and spicy cuisine can cause bad mouth odor. However, most mouth odor results from bacteria interacting with food under the tongue and around the teeth.

Can Bad Breath Be Cured?


The good news is if the bad breath results from your meals, it will disappear with time. It is also good to choose food that would not cause acid reflux, which causes a bad mouth odor. On the other hand, you can completely cure gum disease odor at early stages with professional treatment from a dentist or a periodontist.

Preventing Gum Disease and Bad Breath


Failure to practice oral hygiene can lead to gum disease because the bacteria in the mouth continue to produce acid that erodes tooth enamel and gums. Fortunately, there are straightforward preventative measures to reduce your risk of periodontitis and bad breath. Always brush your teeth twice daily to remove food particles from your mouth and discourage bacteria responsible for gum disease. Additionally, visit a dentist every six months for checkups because it will be easier to identify signs of periodontitis with a professional diagnosis. Visit the dentist immediately if you notice signs of gum disease.

Early gum disease (gingivitis) is easily treatable. If the disease progresses to other stages, it can take more time and advanced treatment methods like surgeries to restore your health. Speak to our dentist if you have questions or concerns about bad mouth odor or gum disease.
