Dry mouth condition aggravates halitosis (foul breath. Solution is. Take sips of water in between conversations. You have cavities which need urgent filling. If deep enough you will need root canal treatment to save those vital teeth. The cavities are collecting the good when you eat. Then those get rotten and the bad smell happens. Act fast. Maintain good dental health. You are overweight also. Try reduce your weight by diet. Exercise. Give away food rich in fat. Sugar etc.

Please suggest uses of oil pulling ?

BDS
Dentist,
Use coconut oil. While you can get the same bacteria-fighting benefits with sesame or sunflower oil, coconut oil has the added benefit of lauric acid, which is well-known for its anti-microbial agents. Don't skip brushing and flossing. Oil pulling should never replace routine dental visits and traditional home oral care, it doesn't reverse the effects of tooth decay, but it's a great supplemental therapy.

Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you: - practice good oral hygiene. - brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. - don't forget to brush the tongue, too. - replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or after an illness. - use floss or an interdental cleaner to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day. - see your dentist regularly -- at least twice a year. He or she will conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and will be able to detect and treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor. - drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. - chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. First and foremost, get your oral cavity clinically examined by a dentist, and then proceed for further specialist checkups (pulmonology & gastroenterology etc all) as advised by your physician. Again, it is in your best interest that you discontinue this habit of chewing 'Gutkha' at the earliest. Allergy apart, its constituents can be likely carcinogenic, regular use of which may increase risk of oral sub-mucosa fibrosis (OSMF), oral cancers as well as cancers of the liver, stomach, prostate and lung. Instead, I would advise you to streamline your diet, have a healthy & balanced diet preferably Mediterranean and maintain a good oral hygiene. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely

This might be due to injury on the inside of the tooth. This can be avoided by getting your teeth checked by visiting a dentist. He / she will do an x ray and pulp vitality test and then the treatment can be initiated.
