Hi I am suffering from bad breath problem from many years. I suspect it's because of intestinal problem because I can feel the smell coming from within. Moreover I had ulcer couple of years back. I did endoscopy and doctor did tell that the wound is not cured yet. However I don't have pain in my stomach. Please suggest how to deal with this bad breath. Thank you.

Gastroeasophageal reflux desease ( GERD ) may some times results in a bad smell coming out from oral cavity.In this condition consult a Gastric Surgeon can only give u proper treatment.. Food lodgement within oral cavity also results in a bad smell. For this undergo scaling ( cleaning of teeth) by a dentist will also help you a lot. Maintain good oral hygine as well followed by brush twice a day. Do proper cleaning of your oral cavity everytime after you eat. Do forcefull gargles everytime after meal. Follow proper brushing techniques.

Hello Doctor, I am suffering from mouth blister for last two month I want to know that is that mouth ulcer? Please advise.

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.

It depends how much reduction required to correct your uneven teeth. Slight amount of enamel reduction does not create any problem but more amount of reduction is not beneficial. It create lot of problem.

Kindly get scaling done and use mouth wash and gum paint twice daily for 15 days. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene. Also notice that you are not constipated most of the times as this is also one of the reasons for bad breath.

The thought of undergoing RCT can cause anxiety and stress. Get a good night sleep before the RCT as it will help to reduce anxiety and will also help in maintaining your overall well being.

Go for professional scaling and polishing of teeth. This will remove the plaque and calculus there by reducing the bleeding. Maintain the he same with proper oral hygiene habits. Use mouthwash twice daily after brushing.

Drink lots of fluid and eat nutritious soft food on the day of the extraction. You can eat normally as soon as you are comfortable. Eat soft foods, such as soup, pudding, yogurt, or applesauce the day after the extraction. You will be fine in few days.

Wear night guard to prevent further damage of your teeth. And continuous teeth grinding at night will cause damage of your enamel which will cause sensitivity and may require rct instead wear night guard and save your teet.

Hello as per your query loss of complete tooth in an accident necessitates proper healing prior to any dental procedure being undertaken. As far as life time of a cap is concerned, it usually lasts till the supporting teeth or the tooth on which it has been placed lasts for. But do get an iopa i. E. X -ray done in order to confirm that no tooth fragment is left behind in the socket.

Gum infection in diabetics patients is common. To reduce it, first control your blood sugar levels. Brush twice a day with soft bristle brush n use a mouthwash. Do salt water gargle twice daily. Massage your gums with gumex gum paint.
