Brush teeth properly twice a day with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste. Use mouthwash and floss in between teeth daily. Rinse you mouth with water thoroughly after every meal. Visit a dentist every 6 months for a regular check-up.

Bad Breath - Causes, Diagnosis And Treatment

Dentist, Delhi
Bad Breath - Causes, Diagnosis And Treatment

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, can occur due to a multitude of reasons and is quite disconcerting. Chewing gum, using breath mints and mouthwash are just temporary solutions as they do not address the problem. Read on more to find all about the different causes, symptoms of bad breath and also about their prevention.


  1. Food: If food particles, which are stuck in and around your teeth start decaying, they promote bacterial growth, which causes a foul odor in the mouth. Eating certain foods, such as spices, onion and garlic also cause foul odor. 
  2. Tobacco products: Smoking and chewing tobacco not only causes gum disease, but also causes a foul odor to be present, thus causing bad breath.
  3. Poor dental hygiene: If you do not brush daily, food particles in your mouth get stuck in your mouth between the teeth in particular, which decay and cause bad breath. A form of bacteria known as plaque forms over the teeth, which over time decays teeth and also causes foul breath.
  4. Dry mouth: A medical condition known as dry mouth, also known as xerostomia can contribute to bad breath as in this condition; the amount saliva produced from the salivary glands is reduced. This results in the growth of bacteria, which causes bad breath.
  5. Medications: Some medications can cause foul breath in an indirect manner as they cause dry mouth as a side effect, which in turn causes bad breath. Other medications break down in your body and the chemicals, which the medicine contains can be carried on your breath.

Dentists would usually rate the odor from your mouth either by smelling or by using certain sophisticated odor detectors. The back of the tongue is often the source of smell and the dentist is also likely to scrape the region and rate its odor.


  1. Maintaining oral hygiene: If the bad breath is due to the formation of plaque, brushing and flossing on a regular basis will prevent its growth, thus reducing or eliminating bad breath. Using mouthwashes also kills bacteria, hence eliminating the bad breath causing bacteria from your mouth.
  2. Treatment of dental disease: Gum disease can also cause bad breath as in this disease, the gums pull away from the teeth, which gives scope for bacterial growth causing bad breath. Treating gum disease, thus would also eliminate the scope for bacterial growth and eliminate bad breath at the same time. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dentist.

Good evening , it is important that you should not delay the same and urgently have a good dental check up by a good dental surgeon specialist. Do take a second opinion by an ENT or a cancer specialist. The may decide to conduct some tests or investigations - if it comes negative we will be one of the happiest people celebrating your good results.

7 Ways You Can Prevent and Manage Periodontal Disease!

7 Ways You Can Prevent and Manage Periodontal Disease!

The gums are also called the periodontium - perio for around and dontium for tooth as the gums are literally present "around the tooth." There is a softer mucosal portion that runs along the tooth in a curved manner and a stronger fibrous portion that connects the tooth to the jaw bone. Together, they provide the structural support for the tooth to be held in place. In addition, they also have an esthetic value with the healthy pink color. The mouth has the largest number of bacteria in the body, which act on the food debris that is present on the tooth and the gums. This causes infection in both the gums and the tooth. 

Types: Periodontal disease can be localized or general. 

  1. Localized disease happens when a tooth is not accessible for thorough cleaning. The inside surface of lower incisors and outer surfaces of the upper last molars are common areas of localized periodontal disease. 
  2. Generalized periodontal disease can be due to conditions like pregnancy, puberty, diabetes where gums around all the teeth are affected. 

Symptoms: In both the cases, the following symptoms: 

  1. Fiery Red gums 
  2. Swollen and/or painful gums 
  3. Spontaneous bleeding from the gums: This may be localized or generalized 
  4. Chronic bad breath: Due to food accumulation in the infected gums 
  5. Pus from the gums when the gums are pressed 
  6. Bad taste in the mouth (arising from pus in the gums) 
  7. Gingival recession, producing an effect of having longer tooth
  8. Sensitive teeth 
  9. Loosening of the tooth/teeth 
  10. Painful chewing, as it puts pressure on the inflamed periodontium 
  11. Dentist will identify what are called pockets, which is an indication of severity - the deeper the pockets, the severe the disease. 

Management and Prevention: 

Gum disease is very easy to identify and can be completely cured.

  1. Regular brushing and flossing can help maintain regular oral hygiene. 
  2. With each brushing session, plain finger massage of the gums improves blood circulation and their overall health.
  3. Regular use of mouth rinse is a good way to improve gum health. 
  4. Regular visits to the dentist can help keep a check on the health of the teeth and the gums - early identification of disease and early treatment. 
  5. Once it has set in, deep scaling followed by root planning may be required to thoroughly clear out the infection. 
  6. More surgical options like gingival grafts, flap surgery, bone grafting in case of severe bone loss may be required. 
  7. Management of conditions like diabetes The best way to avoid periodontal disease is to know its symptoms, follow oral hygiene practices, and visit a dentist regularly.

Need to take x ray for the tooth. To rule out any infections. For temporary relief, take Dolo 650 mg thrice daily for 3 days. Without knowing the exact cause, do not take antibiotics. Do warm salt water gargling.
