How to Get Rid of Bad Breath

How to Get Rid of Bad Breath

Bad breath is a condition that is also known as Halitosis in medical terms. It is mostly caused by the sulphur producing bacteria that lurk around beneath the surface of the tongue. This is what produces the foul odour. These bacteria grow with the help of protein that gets deposited in your mouth, and may develop even faster when there is poor oral hygiene at play. The causes of this protein deposit may include food debris, bleeding, mucus blood, infection and disease in the gums or oral tissues.

So how can you naturally combat this bad breath problem? Read on!

  1. Oral Care Products: Your very first step should be to change your oral hygiene products like toothpastes and mouthwashes in order to bring in products that are specifically used for fighting bad breath and the related causes or problems. Brushing and flossing at least twice a day, or even after every meal is an absolute necessity that one must not compromise on.
  2. Fibre Rich Food: It is important to have plenty of fibre rich food as this helps in preventing bad breath or Halitosis since the fibre content is known to flush toxins out effectively.
  3. Junk and Processed Food: Food that has too much of sugar or artificial sweeteners and food that is packaged and processed with artificial flavourings and emulsifiers, can be bad for the digestive system in general. This kind of food also tends to create bad breath and should be avoided in case you are already suffering from this condition.
  4. Medication: it may come as a surprise to you that there are certain medicines like antidepressants and diuretics that can lead to side effects like drying of the mouth, which in turn can cause a problem of bad breath. So, it would be recommended to steer clear of this kind of medication for a while until the bad breath problem abates.
  5. Tea: Drinking green and black tea can be beneficial for people suffering from this condition as both these types of tea happen to contain substances known as polyphenols that can help in fighting oral bacteria and sulphur compounds. Apart from this, one must also drink plenty of water in order to keep the mouth fresh and to help the digestion work in a better.
  6. Dentures and Braces: If you happen to be wearing dentures and braces, then you may want to clean these regularly and maintain good oral hygiene so that you do not suffer from bad breath. 

Bad breath can be a confidence killer and one should get it checked in case it is a persistent and prolonged problem.

Nail biting is a bad habit that can not only make your hands look unsightly, but if you bite your nails badly enough, you can permanently damage your nails, your teeth, or even your gums.

Why is fluoride used in toothpastes? Does diet make much difference to the child's teeth?

Why is fluoride used in toothpastes?
Does diet make much difference to the child's teeth?
Flouride prevents our teeth to become carious. But its use is in limited amount. Yes diet make differences in teeth . If you take more sticky food or sweet it starts carious condition. If you take more citrous (sour) food it will also lead to enamel loss.

See there are different kinds of permanent teeth available in the market of dentistry Basic is full metal Cobalt Chromium steel material this is basically a full coverage steel crown for the teeth it is very strong and gives a steely look for the wearer particularly I suggest it to heavy non-veg users and old persons only. Secondly there is ceramic which is basically a coating of ceramic over the steel crown ceramic coating will be 1.5 mm thick so it would roughly last you for 10 years in normal wear and tear conditions. Third variant is CAD CAM ceramic which is nothing but ceramic crown prepared by CAD CAM computerised machine so it offers better fit and look for the patient Fourth variant is Zirconia i.e, Bruzir, 3m Lava crowns it is solid zirconia crown which is again prepared by milling solid zirconia block by CAD CAM machine it offers superior esthetics and strength for the crown since it doesnot contain any metal it is esthetically better while you smile and it is the best in terms of biocompatibility with the gingival tissues So I leave it to you to decide which crown you want to go Pricing varies for different crowns in different cities I would like to give you rough rates according to IDA from 1500 for metal crown to 10000 per crown for zirconia.

We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need root canal treatment. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash. Advise c.

Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.
