What to do for the bad smell coming from our teeth ?

CERTIFIED ORAL IMPLANTOLOGIST, NON-RESIDENT J.R. IN DEPTT. OF ORTHODONTICS, BDS
Dentist,
Start warm saline rinse after meals and a mouthwash alternately and brush twice daily. Please identify your cause of bad breath for more exact treatment there have been myriad reported causes of oral malodor, however these are all much less common than the two above causes. deep carious lesions (dental decay)? which cause localized food impaction and stagnation recent dental extraction sockets? fill with blood clot, and provide an ideal habitat for bacterial proliferation interdental food packing? (food getting pushed down between teeth) - this can be caused by missing teeth, tilted, spaced or crowded teeth, or poorly contoured approximal dental fillings. Food debris becomes trapped, undergoes slow bacterial putrefaction and release of malodorous volatiles. Food packing can also cause a localized periodontal reaction, characterized by dental pain that is relieved by cleaning the area of food packing with interdental brush or floss. Acrylic dentures (plastic false teeth)? inadequate denture hygiene practises such as failing to clean and remove the prosthesis each night, may cause a malodour from the plastic itself or from the mouth as microbiota responds to the altered environment. The plastic is actually porous, and the fitting surface is usually irregular, sculpted to fit the edentulous oral anatomy. These factors predispose to bacterial and yeast retention, which is accompanied by a typical smell. Oral infections oral ulceration fasting stress/anxiety menstrual cycle? at mid cycle and during menstruation, increased breath vsc were reported in women. Smoking? smoking is linked with periodontal disease, which is the second most common cause of oral malodor. Smoking also has many other negative effects on the mouth, from increased rates of dental decay to premalignant lesions and even oral cancer. Alcohol volatile foodstuffs? e. G. Onion, garlic, durian, cabbage, cauliflower and radish. Volatile foodstuffs may leave malodorous residues in the mouth, which are the subject to bacterial putrefaction and vsc release. However, volatile foodstuffs may also cause halitoisis via the blood borne halitosis mechanism. Medication? often medications can cause xerostomia (dry mouth) which results in increased microbial growth in the mouth. Systemic diseases[ edit] there are a few systemic (non-oral) medical conditions that may cause foul breath odor, but these are extremely infrequent in the general population. Such conditions are[ 22[ 23] fetor hepaticus: an example of a rare type of bad breath caused by chronic liver failure. Lower respiratory tract infections (bronchial and lung infections). Renal infections and renal failure. Carcinoma. Trimethylaminuria (" fish odor syndrome"). Diabetes mellitus. Metabolic conditions, e. G. Resulting in elevated blood dimethyl sulfide[ 8]

No, now there will be no more permanent teeth in your mouth at this age, once the milk tooth sheds, you can go for artificial teeth.

My teeth are bleeding when I was brushing. I am 31 years old. What is the problem?

My teeth are bleeding when I was brushing. I am 31 years old. What is the problem?
Bleeding is the sign of gum disease known as gingivitis. It happens due to plaque or tarter deposition between gums and teeth which causes infection in gum and supporting tissues and further causes pyria. Get scaling done for plaque or tarter removal. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash. Brush regularly two times daily with soft bristle toothbrush.

Complete scaling (professional cleaning) of your teeth will solve your problem. Its probably calcified (hardened) plaque also called calculus, deposited on your teeth near gum line which cannot be cleared by brushing.

Brushing technique

Post-Graduate Certificate in Oral Implantology (PGCOI), PG in Laser Dentistry, Basic Life Support (B.L.S), MDS Prosthodontics
Dentist, Gurgaon
Brushing technique
Brush your teeth gently with little toothpaste (pea size toothpaste enough). Hard brushing abrades the protective layer of tooth (enamel). Tooth abrasion leads to decay and sensitivity in tooth.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks.

Saving a fallen tooth can be useful. Try to keep it in place while you seek immediate medical attention. If that is not the case, try wrapping the tooth in a piece of plastic or soaking it into milk and call for immediate dental service.

The type of treatment you have for toothache /sensitivity/swelling will depend on the cause of the pain, so your dentist will examine your mouth and may carry out an X-ray to try to identify the problem. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by tooth decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling is caused by a loose or broken filling, the filling will be taken out, any decay will be removed and a new filling put in place. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection. •If your toothache / sensitivity/swelling can't be treated using these methods, or if your tooth is impacted (wedged between another tooth and your jaw), it may need to be removed.

What You Need to Know About Dental Implants

What You Need to Know About Dental Implants

Titanium is considered to have an affinity with bones and also when the new cells grow they attach to the post, thereby, making a strong bond. It is for this reason, the metal is used in dental implants.

Dental implants are titanium posts, which resemble the root of the tooth. These posts are embedded on the jawbone below the gums. This makes it easy to place missing bridge or teeth of the area where inserted. Implants are different from dentures and benefit the oral health as they are not fastened to other teeth like the bridges.

Factors to be kept in mind during the procedure:

  1. Patients must have healthy gums
  2. Must have sufficient bone strength to hold the implants in place
  3. One must be dedicated to maintaining good oral hygiene
  4. Must be visiting dentist regularly

Mechanism of Dental Implant:

A strong, biocompatible material is used to make screws, which are inserted into the bone. Titanium is the most preferred material, and because of its unique property of osseo-integration (fuses with the bone), it fuses with the bone to reduce bone loss after the tooth is gone. In most cases, the titanium screws, which act as the root for the implants are placed into the bone and allowed for some weeks to few months to fuse with the bone. Then, an interim crown may be used until the screw is ready to take on an implant.

The screw is periodically monitored and once it is completely accepted, then an abutment is placed on it. This acts like a stump or a root, over which a crown will be placed. Though most implants are done for replacing single teeth, in many cases, multiple teeth may be replaced using abutments. If the missing teeth are adjacent to each other or in the same quadrant, then a denture might be overlaid over the abutments. Alternately, a partial denture may be used which is screwed over an abutment.

Things to keep in mind post Dental Implant:

  1. Careful brushing: Only soft bristle brush needs to be used in this regard and do not pressurize the treated areas. In this case, tenderness needs to be considered so that brushing can be conducted carefully without injuring or hurting implants.
  2. Maintaining oral hygiene: Oral hygiene is the most important thing, and this is the reason you are advised to use any special mouthwash or any other flossing solution. This step needs to be continued for preventing the growth of unwanted infectious elements as that can ruin the implants completely. You should also carefully brush your teeth without affecting the implanted area.
  3. Avoid smoking: You are not allowed to continue smoking after implants, as that can make the situation complicated, as a result, of which you might even experience dreadful consequences. You should follow different steps to completely curtail the smoking habit from your lifestyle.
