If the mobility is not much, just scaling and polishing with little maintenance will retain the teeth. If mobility is enough, go for extraction n than capping.

I'm suffering from bad breath problem. How to solve and what medicine for that problem.?
bad breath develops due to deposition of plaque and calculus around teeth causing gum infection. no medicine for this, visit a dentist for professional cleaning of your teeth. this will remove these layers and hence this problem will subside soon. you can also ask for antibacterial mouth rinses. also follow strict oral hygiene habits.

Chronic Bad Breath - Causes and Management

Chronic Bad Breath - Causes and Management

One thing that can put away talking to someone very interesting is bad breath. And it is not an uncommon problem. While most just try to use mouth wash and chewing gums to keep it away, it is important to note that bad breath can be a sign of underlying causes, both in the mouth and the body as a whole.  

Identifying the reason can help in early diagnosis and prompt treatment of the actual disease condition.

There could be oral and general causes for bad breath or halitosis as it is medically called.  Food habits and other lifestyle habits including smoking can also lead to bad breath.

Oral causes:

  • Presence of food debris in a moist environment (saliva) is ideal for the oral bacteria to act on the food particles and break them down. This causes a bad breath, when it leads to plaque formation and it then calcifies into a hardened substance called calculus.  Plaque and calculus are the main ingredients for tooth decay and periodontal disease.
  • Severe tooth decay leads to bad breath as does periodontal infections. In severe cases, there could even be abscess formation in the root area of the tooth with pus formation 
  • Unclean dentures are another source of halitosis. There could be food lodged in between teeth or the undersurface of the denture, leading to bad breath.
  • Dry mouth or xerostomia - Certain diseases and drugs can lead to dry mouth with reduced amounts of saliva.  Saliva has a natural flushing effect on the bacteria, and in its absence, the bacteria thrive, leading to a bad odour.

General health:  Chronic diseases like gastroesophageal reflux disease, digestive disorders, liver disorders, cancer, and diabetes can lead to bad breath. 

Others:

  • Long-term smoking and/or chewing tobacco and alcohol are also reasons for bad breath.
  • Crash diets:  People on low-carb diets can have a bad breath, owing to burning of the fat and producing ketones, which have a strong smell.
  • Medications: Nitrates to reduce angina, chemotherapy agents for cancer, phenothiazines for anxiety can all lead to bad breath. They reduce saliva and/or release chemicals causing bad breath.

Management:  The first step in managing halitosis is to nail the cause down, which makes it easier to treat.

  • Start with oral hygiene check, and if there is decay or gum disease, consider restorations and cleaning.
  • Mouth rinses can be used in the maintenance phase.
  • Cessation of tobacco use should be considered.
  • General health conditions like GERD should be managed
  • Artificial saliva in cases of xerostomia
  • Alternative medications if they are causing the bad breath

Oral breath is definitely embarrassing but can be managed very easily.

You can go with orthodontic treatment to get your teeth aligned. This is done using braces. There are two types- metal and ceramic braces. If you r concerned about aesthetics you can opt for the second one that is ceramic or invisible braces.

How to get a fresh teeth after cleaning them from doctor. Please tell me the best pest and brush and more.
Thanks for your query. After getting the teeth cleaned, you can maintain the teeth in a good condition by brushing your teeth twice daily and rinse your mouth soon after eating anything. You can use any tooth paste like colgate, pepsodent etc. But technique is important. You can use medium bristle tooth brush. Take care.

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

All About Dry Mouth

Dentist, Gurgaon
All About Dry Mouth

Dry mouth or Xerostomia is characterized by the drying of the mouth as a result of reduced saliva secretion. Secretion of an adequate amount of saliva helps in chewing & swallowing of food which in turn creates a healthy oral cavity. A recent study showed that women have more chances of getting a dry mouth as compared to men. If not diagnosed on time, dry mouth might lead to mouth infections, severe damage to the teeth enamel and gingivitis.

The symptoms of dry mouth include, but are not limited to:

  • Craving for water in regular intervals.
  • Swollen tongue.
  • Dry eye.
  • Significant trouble while swallowing, speaking or chewing along with disturbing bad breath.
  • Severe headaches and formations of ulcers in the mouth

Causes:
1. This condition might occur as a side effect of:
a. Other serious conditions such as GERD, Alzheimer's disease, HIV/AIDS etc.
b. Side effects of medical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy; this might result in significant damage to the salivary glands.
c. Side effects of drugs prescribed for diarrhea, nausea, asthma, obesity, depression, Parkinson's disease etc.

2. Abnormal consumption of marijuana, crystal methamphetamine and tobacco might cause dry mouth.

3. It can occur during pregnancy and breastfeeding, dry mouth can be a common occurrence because of acute dehydration.

4. Sleep apnea, snoring and breathing through your mouth instead of the nose on a daily basis might induce dry mouth.

5. Severe damage to the nerves might result in dry mouth conditions.

Treatment:

  1. A healthy amount of water consumption, about 3 liters every day, will help to keep the mouth wet.
  2. Application of toothpaste and mouthwashes containing fluoride twice a day will help to keep the mouth moist.
  3. You should change the dosages of medicines after consulting your doctor if Xerostomia is primarily occurring as a result of side effect of the drugs.
  4. Prescribed dosage of medicines such as "Pilocarpine" might induce increased saliva secretion.
  5. Try breathing through the nose instead of your mouth to avoid Xerostomia.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Patients with an identifiable cause of bad breath e.g., periodontal (gum) disease, gingivitis, postnasal drip, systemic illness can be treated for these conditions.
Many cases of bad breath may be readily alleviated by:
Proper dental care and oral hygiene, including daily flossing.
Gentle cleaning of the posterior portion of the dorsum of tongue (e.g., with a plastic tongue cleaner).
Rinsing and deep gargling with an effective mouthwash (in order to get the liquid as far back as possible without swallowing it, one can extend the tongue while gargling). This is most effective when done at bedtime.
Eating fibrous foods (a healthy breakfast is recommended).
Chewing gum briefly (5 minutes is often sufficient) if the mouth is dry, or after meals, especially with high protein intake. Sugar-free gum is preferable.
Sufficient water intake.
Decreasing alcohol and coffee intake.

I have puss near my wisdom tooth. It was due to not brushing early, I guess. It was paining a lot. When I removed the puss I felt better. But there was puss again. What is it and is it serious?

First of all there is nothing serious to worry about. It may be because the wisdom teeth usually do not erupt normally like other teeth in most poeple. If it starts giving a problem then people go to a dentist and get the tooth removed and you will be okay. Like you said the improper brushing may have added to the problem and caused an infection. So the dentist will give you tablets to reduce the pus and then remove the tooth soon after, which is the most important part. Or he may assess the situation and remove the tooth immediately if required. But please do not delay much as the infection may spread to other areas in the mouth or do not just take some medcine without consultation as medication is never a permanent solution.

Dear lybrate-user you need to first treat the problem and make efforts to prevent it further from comming back again. You most probably need a good scaling and polishing from a dentist and have regular followup with the dentist atleast once in a six months.

Bad breath is due to accumulation of plaque on teeth, decay teeth, dry mouth, smoking, tobacco chewing, consumption of caffeinated or aerated beverages, oilly n spicy food, sore throat, bad digestion. Go for scaling and polishing of teeth. Use mouthwash twice daily after brushing. Maintain proper oral hygiene. Increase your water intake.
