Research have proved that gastric (stomach) problems also cause bad breath, so get your gums cleaned by a dentist nearby and have good food habits and visit a physician for gastric problems.

Hi, you need to get a professional cleaning done. If that does not help then you may go for teeth whitening. Regards shilpa Dr. Krinita motwani's dental clinic.

Get an x-ray done to know about the position of wisdom tooth. If it is not erupting in normal occlusal position it can cause infection and pain. Get it extracted. Brush regularly two times daily. Rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine mouthwash.

Treatment dental pain teeth pain may be due to various reasons like infection, sensitivity or trauma. If your teeth is decayed it is better to get it filled or treated by a dentist. If you are opting for root canal treatment do not forget to get a crown on the effected tooth. If you want to go for only medicinal treatment so let me tell you only medicine are not going to be very effective untill you get this treated by a dentist.

I had root canal treatment almost 10 years ago due to an injury in 3 teeth. Now the teeth have started becoming darker in color. Is this expected after rct? I was not told of any such effects while undergoing the surgery.

BDS
Dentist, Noida
Usually after an r. C. T teeth start becoming gray in colour after a couple of years. Depending on the tooth position in the mouth, if crowning is done, then this problem will not come at all. I do not think that you have crowns over these teeth in question. Kindly get a proper check up done from a good dentist & get the needful done. Take care.

How to Fix the Gap between the Teeth?

How to Fix the Gap between the Teeth?

An obvious gap between the teeth may be caused due to a condition known as Diastema. This usually manifests as space between two teeth. This condition is caused due to a mismatch between the size of the bones in the jaw and the size of the teeth. This in turn, gives rise to extra space between the two teeth and may also lead to overcrowding of teeth in the mouth. The space usually occurs when the teeth are too small and the jaw is larger. Also, an oversized tissue known as the labial frenum can cause a gap between two teeth. Let us look at the ways in which this condition can be prevented and treated.

1. Prevention: Not pushing your tongue between the teeth during the teeth growing stage can ensure that this condition does not occur. Children tend to rub their tongue along the jawline when the teeth are growing, whether it is the milk teeth or the permanent ones. This can cause a gap. Also, maintaining good oral health and hygiene can help in preventing this condition. One must brush at least twice a day and floss regularly too, in order to ensure that the gap between the two teeth does not widen.

2. Orthodontic Treatment: Braces are one of the most common ways of fixing this problem. The orthodontic surgeon will usually install these braces,  which will remain in the mouth of the patient for a year or more, depending on the severity of the condition. On a monthly basis, the braces will need to be tightened so that the jaw can facilitate the movement of the teeth to close the gap.

3. Tooth Extraction: In many cases, when the braces are installed, the doctor may also have to remove or extract teeth on the sides to make space for the teeth and their movement. This is usually done when there is a related ailment like overcrowding of the teeth.

4. Crowns and other Dental Installations: Crowns, veneers as well as bonding can help in cases where the lateral incisors may be smaller than what is normal. Also, dental implants or a bridge or even a partial denture may be required in cases where extensive dentistry will be called for.

5. Frenectomy: This surgery can help in closing the gap formed by a large labial frenum. 

6. Gum Health: In case there is an infection or any other problem in the gums due to implants or braces, the gum health will have to treated and restored first and then the implants or braces can be reinstalled.

One should also wear retainers for a while after the gap has closed so that it does not appear again.

Did you have any pain in wisdom tooth. Ever.? If there is pain and swelling around wisdom tooth. The pus comes out and that is actually responsible for smell in mouth some times. Tooth decay if you have deep cavities that can cause food lodgement and then that bad breath problem .usually bad breath problem arises when there is deposit /calculus on teeth. Kindly get it cleaned and polished by dentist .or else if your stomach remains upset al the time or you have acidity problem .then kindly consult a physician.
