Hi, there are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently.

 Do you rinse your tooth brush thoroughly after brushing? If not, then start doing it. A dirty tooth brush may develop bacteria that will enter your mouth each time you use that tooth brush for brushing your teeth.

My friend often gets ulcers in the mouth with swelling of lios and gums. This happens repeatedly. She has tried many homeopathic medications, although it gets fine in a few days after taking the homeopathic medicine, it has never been cured permanently! Can anybody suggest sonething for her?

Ask her to avoid taking very hot beverages and spicy food cause may be this may be the cause of mucosal thinning and ask her to take one tablet of vitamin c 500 mg chew able tablet for 20 days as it will help increase repairing and one becosule capsule every night for 15 days. Her problem will resolve and even ask her to get her endoscopy of stomach to rule out any occurrence of peptic ulcer.

Mouth Breathing - Did You Know How It Is Bad For You?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Mouth Breathing - Did You Know How It Is Bad For You?

Nasal congestion (blocked nose) can give you nightmares. The condition often results in people breathing through their mouth. Mouth breathing, once a while (due to factors that affect the nasal breathing) is understood. The main problem arises when people, especially kids continue to breathe through their mouth even under normal conditions. Nasal breathing is what we have learned and practiced all along. Breathing through the nose is a healthy practice that has many health benefits. Any alteration in this habit can have a deleterious effect on the health in the long run. It can alter the body dynamics and mechanisms, necessary for the proper functioning of the body.

Though cold and nasal congestion are the most common causes of mouth breathing, other conditions that often contribute towards this unhealthy postural habit include:
● Severe respiratory infections.
● Allergies which tend to block the nasal airway (either partial or complete).
● Kids who have a habit of sucking their thumbs or fingers are often found to breathe through their mouth.
● Sinus, enlarged adenoids or tonsils, hay fever, can also result in mouth breathing.

Harmful effects of mouth breathing
In mouth breathing, there is less absorption of oxygen into the bloodstream as compared to the nasal breathing. This oxygen deprivation can give rise to serious consequences and health problems.

  1. Snoring and sleeping disorders (sleep apnea, often resulting from oxygen deprivation) are common among people who breathe through the mouth. Many people wake up with a terrible headache, feeling tired, irritated, and fatigued (in spite of having their full quota of sleep) in the morning. Unable to have a sound sleep often interfere with the overall performance of the affected person. Low levels of oxygen in the bloodstream can also result in hypertension and cardiac problems. Some people also suffer from brain fog (mental fatigue resulting in confusion and at times, hallucinations).
  2. Dry mouth along with cracked lips is one of the harmful consequences of mouth breathing. Under normal situations, the saliva (in the mouth) prevents the bacteria from thriving within the mouth and causing infections. When the mouth becomes dry (less saliva), bacteria can easily thrive inside, resulting in infections (throat and ear), cavities, bad breath, Gingivitis (gum inflammation brought about by a bacterial infection).
  3. A person with mouth breathing may suffer from digestive problems such as acid reflux, gas, and stomach upsets.
  4. Believe it or not, but mouth breathing can give rise to skeletal and facial deformities (especially in children). The face may appear narrow and long, the chin and jaws lower, and the cheekbones often suppressed. There is also an improper alignment of the teeth (teeth appear crooked).
  5. Mouth breathing can also lead to speech impediments, especially in children between the age group of 4-12 years. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

child's oral hygiene tips
A childs first tooth appears around 6months of age. Oral care should be strarted from then only. Wipe the teeth with clean gauze pieces. Do not let the baby sleep with milk bottles in their mouth. By the age of 2 yrs supervise the childs brushing twice a day with a fluoridated paste of only a pea sized quantity in rotatory motions. Make yr childs dental visits every 6months a priority.

By using a wire brush, gently clean between brackets (under the wires) to get the plaque off. It is very necessary to keep the mouth free from plaque during the orthodontic treatment.

Ultrasonic Scaling of Teeth

Ultrasonic Scaling of Teeth
Sometimes patients are worried whether ultrasonic scaling makes the teeth more mobile. In reality it is just the opposite. During and immediate post scaling patients may find spaces between their teeth but that is because the calculus and other foreign particles have been dislodged to clean the gum area. But very good healthy gum tissues grow back to fill up the spaces making your teeth and gums stronger and better.

My mother fell and cracked a vertebrae. She has osteoporosis. She was given a brace but it doesn't seem to be helping. Is there any treatment for this?

Osteoporotic vertebral fractures usually become painless by 4 to 6 weeks as the fracture heals. Medicines, rest and brace are initial treatment. Sometimes the fracture doesn't heal well and pain persists. Vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty are the procedures usually done in such situation for pain relief. They are minimally invasive as bone cement is injected into the fractured vertebra through a needle. These procedures give immediate pain relief. You must see a spine surgeon to see if it is suitable for her. Medical treatment for osteoporosis should go on at the same time.

How to clean teeth. The yellow spot on teeth major problem for me. How can remove it. please advise me.
Try to find out if the spot is intrinsic or extrinsic. Extrinsic stains can be removed by scaling, intrinsic stains to be removed by bleaching procedure. There are many types of bleaching procedures, the suitability of the procedure depends on case to case.

I have bad breath even if I brush and rinse my mouth after every meal. My gums are turning white.

I have bad breath even if I brush and rinse my mouth after every meal. My gums are turning white.
Gums may be turning white due to deposits on teeth or maybe due to some infection. And that would be the cause of your bad breath. So visit a dentist nearby for a check up.

Weak gums implies deposition of tartar on teeth, so start brushing with soft toothbrush and sensodyne toothpaste, if still your problem persists, let me know.

Thanks for your query. There is no other way than going back to braces. You have done a big mistake by not using the retainers. So consult your orthodontist and get it treated. I hope I have answered your query. Take care.

Please suggest me a good solution for this.
Gum bleeding is due to infection in gums. Infection in gums due to negligence in daily cleaning of teeth. But now as the infection is already occurred you have to go for professional cleaning. After cleaning also you have to take of daily maintenance of oral hygiene.

you need not to remove that tooth stanely, you can go for a root canal treatment for this. sensitivity in this tooth is due to deep cavities due to which it is decayed. visit a dentist for the same. don't forget to have a cap over it. this will be completely fine.
