Infections in the mouth, such as dental caries (tooth decay), periodontal (gum) disease or mouth sores related to other conditions may contribute to bad breath. Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. Dry mouth also can cause bad breath. Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products also can cause bad breath, You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then.

Is oral submucous fibrosis a lesion or a condition? How much percent chance has it to develop into oral cancer? Are there any permanent cures? Or preventive remedies?

It is a condition. It has 1 percent chance of developing into oral cancer. If the patch is small you can get it surgically excised if not just keep a watchful eye on it. Preventive measures-treat an infected tooth near the lesion, decrease smoking, paan and alcohol.

Bad breath (halitosis) can be due of multitude reasons ranging from depostis (hard and soft) on teeth to upper respiratory (urt) to digestive tract lesions (ulcers, etc;). This can be evaluated by visiting a suitable dentist (periodontist). Various treatment options are available to treat this bad breath.

Sir I am eating tobacco and I am not able to open my hole mouth so sir can you please . Suggest me any treatment.

Sir I am eating tobacco and I am not able to open my hole mouth so sir can you please . Suggest me any treatment.
Hi lybrate-user, since you are a tobacco user, it is likely that you are suffering from a condition called osmf (oral submucous fibrosis). The condition is characterized by mild red bands on the inner sides of the cheeks and decreased mouth opening due to reduced elasticity of tissues. Topical steriods usually are advised for reducing the bands. In some cases, medicines need to be injected directly into the lesions (intra-lesional injections), which brings about quick improvement. Also, for your mouth-opening to get back to normal, it will take some time, and you will be required to do some mouth exercises. I suggest that you consult me privately on lybrate. In private/video consultation, looking at the extent of your mouth opening, I will be in a better position to solve your query. Also, I will be able to tell you how to perform the mouth opening exercises. Take care.

It can be removed by bleaching technique. If your teeth are not so much sensitive then you can go bleaching by a dental surgeon.

Home remedies and medications won't help much, pain will be reduced but to get rid of pain necessary treatment has to be done, I think caries has progressed deep and you may require Root canal treatment, kindly visit your nearby Endodontist soon.

★ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY MAKES ROOT CANALS EASIER.●

Root canal therapy has gone high-tech recently, making the procedure as easy as possible for both patients and dentists!
Thanks to recent root canal technology, teeth can now be treated without invasive dental surgery.
With modern dental instruments and advanced techniques, dentists have more resources than ever to complete successful root canals, and patients can have the procedure done in just one visit -- virtually pain-free!
Dental technology has produced the following advancements in root canal therapy:-------

1.NICKEL TITANIUM FILES -- Stainless steel files used to clean out the root canals were susceptible to breakage and limited the amount of infection that could be removed. Now, dentists use nickel titanium files, which are more flexible with less breakage.

2.ANESTHETICS -- Current local anesthetics make it easier to numb the entire tooth, so patients don't feel any pain during the procedure. There are also more sedation dentistry options for fearful patients, including nitrous oxide and oral sedation.

3.MODERN DENTAL INSTRUMENTS -- New high-torque motor hand pieces are much stronger and faster than before, enabling dentists to have more control over their dental instruments and better shape the root canal. Ultrasonic instruments are also being used during the root canal procedure -- they produce ultrasonic vibrations to clean the root in preparation for the filling.

4.MICROSCOPES -- Used mostly during complex dental treatment, surgical operating microscopes allow dentists to see deep within the root canal for improved removal of infection. Magnifying glasses with fiber optic light can also be worn to give dentists a better view during the procedure.

5. X-RAYS -- Dentists may use X-rays several times during the procedure to check the status of the tooth. Digital X-rays not only produce less radiation, but are developed immediately, lessening the time you spend in the dental chair.

6.APEX LOCATORS -- The dentist's goal during the procedure is to clean and fill the canal to the very end of the root, or apex. If a dentist cannot find the apex, some of the infection may be left behind. An electronic apex locator measures the root, finding the apex through sound waves and guiding the dentist to the end of the root canal.

7.CLEANING AND FILLING THE CANALS -- Dentists take several measures to keep the infection from returning. Once the infection is removed, dentists use a medicated rinse to wash away any leftover debris and disinfect the tooth. Gutta percha, an antibacterial tooth filling material, better fills the canal, and non-allergenic dental sealers seal the space without irritating the tooth.

8.Laser ROOT CANAL THERAPY -- The most recent innovation in root canal technology, laser dentistry thoroughly cleans the root's canal without using drills or hand files. The Waterlase® laser uses a laser and high-pressure water system to

Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too.

Sugary foods should be consumed in limited quantities as the bacteria in dental plaque changes them into acids.

Brush Your Teeth Regularly

Brush twice a day, keep tooth problems away: brushing twice a day removes the tiny left out food particles from the mouth and keeps it fresher and cleaner.

Unfortunately implants will cost you that much, but you can go for fixed denture instead of implant which will be much cheaper.

For tooth cavity the immediate treatment is to get it fillled as soon as possible. If its paining then it has reached pulp n got it infected. Possible treatrment is root canal treatment along with capping. So go to a dentist and get it done fast. Take care.
