PREVENTION OF BAD BREATH

BDS
Dentist, Pune
PREVENTION OF BAD BREATH
Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you:
1. Practice good oral hygeine. Brush twice a day with flouride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque.
2. See your dentist regularly-atleast twice a year
3. Stop smoking or chewing tobacco-based products. Ask your dentist for tips on quitting the habit.
4. Drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. This helps wash away food particles and bacteria.
5. Keep a log of the foods you eat. If you think they maybe causing bad breath bring the log to your dentist to review.

Advanced Aesthetics, BDS
Dentist,
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. You can come to our clinic for a consultation (free of cost) regards

Hello lybrate-user, please note that second trimester of pregnancy is relatively safe for elective dental treatment. However, if there is no pain at the moment, kindly wait until delivery as certain diagnostic procedures like x-rays cannot be done right now. However, please consult a dentist right away and get an opinion.

Don't worry about the cost. Just make sure that the doctor who puts braces is an mds in orthodontist. Very important. As per your question. 35000 for ceramic braces is ok. If you are in bombay.

This could b either due to sensitivity due to loss of enamel surface or due to decay of tooth. Tooth decay can b treated by filling of tooth or by rct n capping of the decay is deep. Sensitivity can b reduced by using desensitizing toothpaste such as senquelf or sensodyne toothpaste by rubbing some amount of toothpaste onto your tooth surface n wait till 5 mins before rinsing it off. Get your teeth evaluated by dentist to know the cause of your problem n get treated accordingly. Regsrds.

I noticed a small, black mark on my wisdom tooth (that's small and still growing). I brushed and it went away. After dinner, I just noticed a faint black mark on it again. What could this be?

A small black mark could be decay. It could also just be a stain. But if it went away after brushing then it chances are that it is just food particle or debris because decay or caries can never be removed by brushing. Please visit a dentist to get it filled or cleaned out during the early stages.

Usually mouth ulcers take 7-10 days to heal. You can apply any gel having lignocain 4-5 times a day, especially before eating. Taking b complex will not give immediate relief but it is required to be taken for atleast a month once daily. For long term effect, consult a dentist & get your vit b12 & folic acid level checked. If found deficient, take the advised proper regimen to avoid ulcers for long duration.

I have ulcer in my tounge from 2 days what should I do?

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist,
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need hexigel ointment until then. You may consult me in person too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. 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.

It might be because of poor oral hygiene or deficiency of Vitamin B. Better consult to local dentist (Better MDS-Oral Medicine). Till then you can use salted hot water mouth rinses.

I have pain in my teeth from last night. What to do to get rid of this pain?

BDS (GOLD MEDALIST)
Dentist,
For temporary relief from pain you can take ketorol dt 2 tabs dissolved in half cup of water or ibuprofen one tablet after meal. You need to go for an x-ray to rule out the cause of pain. It made due to some reasons like caries (cavity), gum disease, fractured tooth.
