Although excessive saliva is not too common, there are a number of conditions that can cause it - some harmless, others more serious. It is possible that your saliva problems are just a result of the way you speak. Some people speak faster or slower than others, just as some people blink more often, breathe faster, or have a more rapid heartbeat. This may just be what's normal for you. Since it is negatively affecting your life, I suggest your problem can be ignored. However there are medical conditions that causes excessive salivation injection glycopyrrolate reduces secretions in the mouth, throat, airway, and stomach.

May be there chances of calculous deposition at the cervical area of teeth. Go to your dentist. If needed get cleaned your teeth (i.e. Scaling and polishing) follow proper brushing technique (watch utube videos for brushing technique) and understand from your dentist. Most common causes of bad breath is poor oral hygiene which leads to gum disease and tooth decay. If tooth decay present. Get filled. If decay is deep than root canal treatment is the option other causes of bad breath smoking, alcohol habit eating food like garlic onion and spices regularly some medical conditions dry mouth (xerostomia) (GORD) means gastro-oesophageal reflux disease diabetes bronchitis tonsillitis sinusitis. Etc some medicines can also cause bad breath 1st consult your dentist. If needed consult your general practitioner.

Bad breath is due to accumulation of plaque on teeth, decay teeth, dry mouth, smoking, tobacco chewing, consumption of caffeinated or aerated beverages, oilly n spicy food, sore throat, bad digestion. Go for scaling and polishing of teeth. Use mouthwash twice daily after brushing. Maintain proper oral hygiene. Increase your water intake.

Hello, You may be having carious exposure in your teeth which have reached the deep layers of the teeth. The sensitivity to hot, cold and sweet food is the sign of deeply carious tooth. ROOT CANAL TREATMENT is the treatment required in your case, get it done from a proffesional dentist as soon as possible.

My decay is increasing how to stop without doing root canal because it pains a lot.

My decay is increasing how to stop without doing root canal because  it pains a lot.
Hi. Unfortunately nothing can be done except physically removing the decay. If the pulp/nerves are involved then rct becomes a must otherwise not. Visit a dentist, get a radiograph made. If needed take a second opinion before you do the treatment.

You need to visit dentist and get teeth checked for any cavities. Smoking does have adverse effects on your oral health. Try and quit smoking as well.

Halitosis or foul breath can be because of many dental and medical reasons. Please consult a doctor for accurate diagnosis. It can be because of gum problems and tartar collection that is the most common reason.

Jaise gutkha chhor diye tobacco bhi chhor do aap. Tobacco gutkha khaini beedi cigarette kattha paan zarda alcohol everything is bad. First step stop tobacco. 2nd step visit a dentist preferrably an oral maxillofacial surgeon. 3rd step get corticosteriod injections. 4th step do the exercise said by dentist. Feel with your finger the cheek from inside the mouth. Gaal ke andar kuchh mota mota aur rough jaisa hoga. That is fibrosis and us a dangerous symptom.

You must try and try again and again until you succeed. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Please visit a dentist soon. Any tablet that you get over the counter at a pharmacy would just be a temporary solution. Please get proper diagnosis and treatment.
