Change your brush to super soft one and start using a good mouthwash and if possible please visit a dentist for cleaning of your teeth this will solve your problem.

Mujhe muh se kafi sare baas(bad breath) ya badbu aati rahti hai mai iska bahut ilaj karya chuka per bhi theek nahi ho pa raha hai mujhe theek hona bhi jaruri hai.

Bad breath can be due to some conditions like dry mouth, gum disease, tooth decay, plaque accumulation. So it is important to rule out the cause of smell. Use sugar free chewing gum. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash. Keep your mouth clean. You can consult me.

Precaution to have reduced saliva flow in mouth you have to maintain oral hygiene. Kindly ensure that you rinse after having meals. Brush twice a day, once in morning and after dinner and use listerine mouthwash twice a day morning and before going to bed. Visit your dentist once in six month for checkup and cleaning of teeth if required. For stomach pain you have to consult your family doctor.

I am suffering from bad breath (due to bad stomach). What kind of food shall I avoid?

BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
I am suffering from bad breath (due to bad stomach). What kind of food shall I avoid?
Avoid these foods: alcohol coffee and teas that contain caffeine onions garlic citrus fruits and juices tomato products peppermint spicy foods chocolate fried or fatty foods Eat foods that are rich in fiber to fight halitosis. Fiber helps the digestive movement (peristalsis) run smoothly so that reflux and obstruction are less likely to occur. Fibrous foods also keep you feeling full longer and may help you maintain your weight. GERD is linked to being overweight, so consult your doctor about losing weight to relieve acid reflux and heartburn. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to refresh your breath. Water is less likely than other beverages to upset your stomach or weaken your LES. It also helps wash away bacteria that can lead to bad breath. Be sure to choose still water instead of sparkling, as carbonation can increase heartburn symptoms.

Helo lybrate-user, noting to worry, yellow teeth is due to deposits in teeth or due to stains. Do a simple scaling (professional cleaning) to remove deposits and stains. So that your teeth will look normal in colour if needs go for teeth whitening.

Get your composite filling done again but if it comes out again and again then you may have to go for a ceramic crown.

I have bad breath problem. I have observed that soon after drinking milk the problem of bad breath starts. This happens even after brushing teeth and cleaning tongue. I got the regular check up and scaling done at more than 1 Dentist. Dentists don't have a clue why I have this bad breath problem.

Bad breath has many causes, most common cause is any respiratory infection with post nasal sinusitis, second most common cause is due to Gastrointestinal issues( stomach issues),3rd one are teeth and there are many more. It looks like your bad breath is not related to your dentition. Most likely cause( with the kind of history you have written ) seems to be acidity or any other stomach problem.

Ulcers occurred due to sharp edged tooth or some overhanging margin of a filling or crown. Mouth ulcer has so many causes. The most common associated cause is vit b12 deficiency, local trauma or apthous stomatitis. Local trauma includes rubbing on sharp edges, fillings, false teeth, dentures, orthodontic treatment eating rough foods like potato chips can cause ulcers thermal burns can happen after eating very hot foods or beverages in the mouth. Holding an strong concentrated medicine next to mucosa can cause ulcer a person undergoing radiotherapy develops ulcer recurrent apthous stomatitis is also associated with ulcers. Underlying cause is hematinic deficiency (folate, vitaminb, iron), stopping smoking, stress, mensturation, trauma, food allergies or hpersenstivity to sodiul lauryl sulphate found in toothpaste. Many infections are also associated with ulcers like chicken pox, herpetic stomatitis, anug, syphilis, tb many drugs can cause ulcers like alendronate (a bisphosphonate drug for osteoporosis, cytotoxic drugs, nsaids (pain killers), nicorandil for angina and propylthiouracil for hyperthyroidism. I have tried to elaborate as many causes as possible. The purpose is that" ulcer is not a disease but a symptom of may other disease, please try to find your problem, then the treatment can be started after that. We need to find the right cause before we can start over the treatment. For pain relief, you can apply a topical oral ulcer gel containing choline salicylate and lignocaine hcl. Aslo start warm saline rinses if the problem persist, you need to consult a dentist for more specific diagnosis and treatment would be tailored accordingly.

A cup of tea a day, keeps the dentist away! A single cup of tea contains high amounts of flouride and flavonoids which prevent harmful bacteria from sticking to the teeth thereby keeping the teeth and gums healthy.

Removal of deposits /calculus in between the teeth may cause spaces. If these deposits are not removed your teeth would appear yellow, affect the gums causing bleeding of gums and also cause bad breath and even weaken the bone healthy gums are more important. Spacing of the teeth could be due to weakened bone or other causes. An xray will help to know the cause. Do visit the dentist nearby scaling is only benefical.

Know More About Brushing!

Know More About Brushing!

Brushing is a daily routine of everyone’s life.Many among us do not know how to brush the teeth in correct manner.There are many aspects other than brushing alone which cannot be overlooked.

There are several methods and techniques which are recommended by the dentist for tooth brushing.Some of them are,

A. Charter method B. Bass method C. Stillman method D. Fones method.

These are meant for particular cases depending on his/her oral condition. Though these techniques are not meant for every individual there are certain common mistakes we must avoid while doing brushing. Today I will tell you the most common mistakes we make while brushing,

1) The wrong angle:

The angle of the brush should be 45 degree to the gum line for to have greater efficiency in cleaning. This angle ensures the safe brushing without wearing of tooth and injuries to gums.This is the first step.

Second step is moving the brush on vertical (upside down/downside upward) cleans the food debris between the two teeth. Horizontal rubbing to the front surface of tooth leads to faster tooth loss and less efficient cleaning.Repeat the same direction from both the surfaces of all the teeth.

2)The time spent on brushing:                              

 Ideal time for to spend on brushing is 3 to 7 minutes. In less than 3 minutes the hard plaque( food debris) doesn’t get soften enough to get removed by brush. Tooth paste have softening agent in it which requires at least 3 minutes to act on the food ruminants inside our mouth.       

3)The Wrong Consistency  Of  Brush:


 Have you ever looked for the consistencies while buying your tooth brush? Hard,Medium,Soft,Ultra soft. These are written on the tooth brush.Depending on your gum and teeth condition your dentist will advise you to use appropriate consistency. Using wrong consistency can injure your gums and teeth.Too hard brush will damage your gums and too soft will not do efficient cleaning.

4)Using same brush for months:                     

Do not get too attached to your tooth brush, change it periodically. If your tooth brush gets worn before two to 3 months it means you are too hard on your teeth. Change your brush every 3 to 4 months. If you follow the ideal protocol and correct brushing technique your brush should last for 3 months.

5)Not Cleaning your tongue :

Tongue cleaning is the last but one of the important part of your oral hygiene maintenance.

You can clean your tongue either by brush by giving soft strokes on the tongue or you can buy the tongue cleaner available in the market.Being a soft and rough texture it becomes good habitat for the bacteria.

Kindly consult an orthodontist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (model study, full mouth & profile x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need fixed / removable braces. Requirements may depends on the age, complaint, duration of the treatment & affordability. Cost of cosmetic dentistry (braces) varies with dentist.
