Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth.Dry mouth also can cause bad breath.Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products also can cause bad breath,You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then.

If d socket is healed properly den der should not be any leakage of fluids frm there. Go to a dentist again and he will check it thoroughly. May be d fluid can be your saliva. And saliva secretion is a normal process in mouth.

Hello, bad breath could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. It could also be because of cold, acidity, fasting for long hours, not drinking enough water, stomach problem. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit your dentist every 6 months.

I want to fill my teeth gap but not with braces is there another treatment option to fill teeth gap?

I want to fill my teeth gap but not with braces is there another treatment option to fill teeth gap?
There are other options like porceline venner, lamination, white filing material, some patient prefer gold filing. There are options available as per how much money you want to spent and other important factor is space or gap between youe teeth. So my advise is to consult a good dentist. Because only he/She can advise which is best for you.

Kindly visit dental surgeon. There is no need to remove the tooth, the teeth can be treated and a crown preparation can be done. You will have a beautiful smile after treatment.

Its not water but your salivation which might be high causing this issue for you. Try brushing your teeth at night time before bed, it might help.

Hii lybrate-user. Yellowish stain on tooth cannot be removed by tooth paste. You need to visit a dentist for scaling (professional cleaning).

Drinking a cup of tea everyday helps in keeping the gums and teeth healthy as it contains high amounts of flouride and flavonoids which prevent harmful bacteria from sticking to the teeth.

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.

I brush twice daily. But still my teeth is not getting white color. I am using sensodyne tooth paste. What should I do to get rid of the yellow stains.

If you want to get rid of yellow stains then you need to get your teeth cleaned first and then go for bleaching of teeth to brighten it. Sensodyne or any other toothpaste is of no use
