Can Hiatal Hernia Cause Bad Breath ?



Can Hiatal Hernia Cause Bad Breath ?

Leakage due to Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease(GERD) can result in Acid Reflux and Bad Breath (Halitosis).

GERD occurs when stomach acid enters the esophagus. This happens when the muscle ring that acts as a valve between the stomach and esophagus does not close properly. This condition is caused by Hiatus Hernia.

Hiatus Hernia occurs when the upper part of the stomach protrudes into the diaphragm there causing the muscle ring that acts as a valve between the stomach and esophagus not to close properly, when this happens, stomach contents leak back, or reflux, into the esophagus.

The end result of this deformation is that stomach acid and gases escape into the mouth causing Acid Indigestion and Bad Breath (Halitosis).

Leakage due to GERD can result in Acid Reflux and Bad Breath (Halitosis).
