Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.

Halitosis (bad breath) is a commonst condition when you wake up from bed, even brushing during previous night. I advice you to swish mouth daily befre bed, and if you don't find it useful you can visit a dentist where he wil evaluate further.

Gum diseases can be treated and reversed in their initial stages very easily. By getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed by a dentist, there is a chance that they can get better without much ado.

U need to consult first any dentist for check up, if any carries, or sensitivity of gums/teeth. So that you need to take precautions abt the usage of tooth paste, tooth brush{fine&gentle bristles]&any medications if necessary. In general maintaing good oral hygein like bushing twice, with proper brush&paste, in particular manner, rinsing mouth after eating anything, taking more water are to be followed. If any dental coating isfound damaged, then sensitivity will be increased, then you need to take care abt food items along with particular paste& brush usage.

Dear Lybrate user, I can fully understand the social impact that bad breath can cause. Bad breath can be due to several reasons where 90% of the times, it is due to an unclean tongue. Pay special attention towards cleaning your tongue while brushing. Since you're already done with scaling, you have to follow some maintenance tips now. Rinse your mouth after every meal. At times, the teeth alignment is such that it causes food particles to remain stuck between teeth for a long time. Rinsing will help you get rid of extra food particles. Make a habit to floss after every meal. Go to you tube and watch some flossing videos for a demonstration. It is the best and most effective way to keep your mouth clean. Sadly, it is not recommended much by dentists routinely. Less salivary secretion can also cause bad breath. Chewing sugarfree gums like orbit after meals will help. Saunf (fennel), mint leaves (pudina) are natural breath fresheners. Keep yourself hydrated, consume plenty of water as it helps the body to get rid of bacteria and toxins. Avoid onions and garlic in your meals. Maintain a healthy diet, consume more fibre/salads, foods rich in vitamin. Don't use your mouthwash beyond 15 days. Some medicines and underlying liver or kidney conditions also cause bad breath so consult your general physician too. Don't worry, hope these tips help.

Off course you need to visit a dentist because any painkiller would always give you a temporary relief. You need to get x ray done and get the required treatment done.
