Hi, there are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently.

How to get freedom from tooth problems?
We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. 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. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Sir my teeth is so sensitive. What I do to solve this problem ?
Teeth sensitivity is a result of loss of outer most layer (enamel) of teeth. That can be due to: - tooth grinding - acidic beverages (such as soda) that cause enamel erosion and dentin exposure. - brushing with a very abrasive toothpaste, brushing incorrectly and/or brushing more than three times a day could result in a loss of enamel. - a chipped or fractured tooth may expose the dentin. Here are few steps to avoid sensitivity of teeth: - practice good oral hygiene. - use a sensitivity toothpaste like sensodyne. - don't brush too hard. - use a softer toothbrush. - take care while consuming acidic foods. - use fluoridated dental products. - avoid grinding your teeth. - see your dentist regularly for professional tooth cleaning, dental care recommendations and advice on treating your sensitive teeth.

Is it necessary to take out wisdom teeth, if it not hurts?

Its not necessary. Any tooth/ teeth should be saved, wisdom teeth are notorious with their position and anatomy. once they start hurting, its best to visit a nearest dentist and he can give u options in regards to save or extract the tooth. Bottomline: save whenever possible.

Vigorous brushing first of all causes many problems like attrition, and is injurious to the gums as well. So please use a soft or medium tooth brush (as per dentists advice) without using much force, brush in vertical and horizontal directions. And all surfaces of the teeth should be brushed. If you use more force it does not mean your teeth will get cleaner. About the swelling, it must be seen by a dentist so that he can detect the exact cause.

In root portion this cavity form a canal according to the shape of root. Once this cavity is is exposed to oral environment means it get infected. In such situation root canal is the only option for that tooth.

Lybrate-user, if your wisdom tooth is incorrectly placed or stuck halfway and has not erupted fully because of improper positioning, you will need to get the wisdom tooth extracted to get rid of the problem. If it is incorrectly placed, it is better to get it removed at a early age.

The reason for most dental problems is not keeping them clean. Brush twice a day for health teeth.

Hello lybrate-user, first I want to congratulate. Actually third trimester of pregnancy is safe period for treatment. If it is painful for you then go for removal of your wisdom tooth. For temporary relief you can rinse with warm water by adding salt in it. But it is only for temporary relief.
