Dear Lybrate user, bad breath can be due to an unclean tongue, decaying tooth, reduced flow of saliva in mouth etc. Consult your dentist to know the exact cause and follow the treatment accordingly. Natural Breath sweeteners like saunf (fennel seeds) he; lp in increasing saliva flow.

Scaling does not cause harm. It has transformed the teeth of many people who were in need of it and their teeth and gums became much healthier as all the accumulated dirt was removed which cannot be done by just brushing. So if the spot on your teeth can be removed by scaling and if the dentist you visit suggests that you need it you can go for it without any fear. If your teeth have deposits it will definitely make them better and healthier. If you also maintain oral hygiene well after a scaling its effects will be much better.

Tooth shade can be lighten by a procedure called as bleaching. In this procedure, a tray containing a gel is placed in the mouth for 15-30 mins. This will lighten the shade of your teeth.

During orthodontic treatment, suffering from pain and soreness in the mouth is quite common. To lessen the degree of it, the patient can gargle with  8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. It will surely dull the pain and provide some relief.

Dear, One thing you have to accept is that all things cant be as normal as they were before therapy. Its not abnormal means its fine as per your oral health status. I advice you to trust your Dr. And its never of shame to go for second opinion. Even we Drs some times refer cases for better diagnosis of patient.Good Luck

Congratulations on your decision to quit smoking! the bleeding is not due to cancer. The gums usually bleeds once a person stops smoking visit a dentist get cleaning (scaling) done and let the gums settle for a week things would be better.

Doctors give calculated dose of anesthesia as per the body weight of a person to avoid any adverse effect. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. 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.

praveen, bad breath can be due to sinusitis or other diseases also. if it would be an oral condition, then since you have followed the dentist's instructions correctly and did all whatever they asked you for, this problem would have gone. as it still persists, it seems to be due to other reasons. visit an oral surgeon for confirming sinusitis, if it's not, visit physician.

Dear, There has to be a cause for your gums receeding - aggressive brushing, clenching habit, calculus (tartar) deposits, traumatic bite or irregular teeth to name the most common. It will be prudent to reach a possible cause of your problem on a clinical examination and then treat the cause. Further loss of the same would be stopped. Once it becomes stable - that is there is no further recession of your gums we can think of ways to get them back up to the levels possible.
