Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. Quit habits if any. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Advance procedures (for pink gums) can be done with laser.

Chronic Bad Breath - Causes and Management

One thing that can put away talking to someone very interesting is bad breath. And it is not an uncommon problem. While most just try to use mouth wash and chewing gums to keep it away, it is important to note that bad breath can be a sign of underlying causes, both in the mouth and the body as a whole.

Identifying the reason can help in early diagnosis and prompt treatment of the actual disease condition.


There could be oral and general causes for bad breath or halitosis as it is medically called. Food habits and other lifestyle habits including smoking can also lead to bad breath.


Oral causes


- presence of food debris in a moist environment (saliva) is ideal for the oral bacteria to act on the food particles and break them down. This causes a bad breath, when it leads to plaque formation and it then calcifies into a hardened substance called calculus. Plaque and calculus are the main ingredients for tooth decay and periodontal disease.
- severe tooth decay leads to bad breath as does periodontal infections. In severe cases, there could even be abscess formation in the root area of the tooth with pus formation
- unclean dentures are another source of halitosis. There could be food lodged in between teeth or the undersurface of the denture, leading to bad breath.
- dry mouth or xerostomia - certain diseases and drugs can lead to dry mouth with reduced amounts of saliva. Saliva has a natural flushing effect on the bacteria, and in its absence, the bacteria thrive, leading to a bad odour.


General health: chronic diseases like gastroesophageal reflux disease, digestive disorders, liver disorders, cancer, and diabetes can lead to bad breath.


Others:
- long-term smoking and/or chewing tobacco and alcohol are also reasons for bad breath.
- crash diets: people on low-carb diets can have a bad breath, owing to burning of the fat and producing ketones, which have a strong smell.
- medications: nitrates to reduce angina, chemotherapy agents for cancer, phenothiazines for anxiety can all lead to bad breath. They reduce saliva and/or release chemicals causing bad breath.


Management: the first step in managing halitosis is to nail the cause down, which makes it easier to treat.
- start with oral hygiene check, and if there is decay or gum disease, consider restorations and cleaning.
- mouth rinses can be used in the maintenance phase.
- cessation of tobacco use should be considered.
- general health conditions like gerd should be managed
- artificial saliva in cases of xerostomia
- alternative medications if they are causing the bad breath


Oral breath is definitely embarrassing but can be managed very easily.

Flossing is as important as brushing on a daily basis. Taking the floss all the way down to the point where the teeth and gums meet is the appropriate way of doing it.

Hi i am Having toothache. Its paining too much.

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Kindly get an x-ray done and only then can the required treatment be planned. Most likely you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown or cap. Till then you can take a pain killer like zerodol pt but this will give you temporary relief. Kindly brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique.

Do you floss daily along with brushing and tongue cleaning? If not, your teeth can suffer from tooth decay and gum diseases due to plaque-build up.

Hello doctor, my mother is 40 years old. She is suffered from severe toothache for nearly 2 weeks. She went to hospital and that dentist gave just tablets. She followed that tablets regularly but it is not cured. What should I do now?

Tablets is just for the symptom relief and not the treatment for your cause. When pain is there, genarally treatment is not done as patient will not be co operative and anaesthesia may not also work. So Dr. Will prescribe the medicines and will ask you to visit back for treatment. Please do visit back your dentist for the proper treatment.

Well its a diffcult question to explain.. to be short -- its acts immediately.. but you need not worry abt it. beacuse the deminerliaztion caused by break down of sugars.. is compensated by re mineraliztion process.. the reason you suffer from dental decay is when your demineralization process dominates the re mineralization process.. to avoid this you must avoid eating a lot of sugar containing and sticky food stuffs. brush twicwe with a correct method and change your tooth brush every 2-3 months

Kind of toothbrush to be used by adults:       We recommend a brush with soft bristles which helps in removing the plaque and debris thoroughly from the mouth.

Gum diseases can be treated and reversed in their initial stages very easily. By getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed by a dentist, there is a chance that they can get better without much ado.
