Bad smell comes out from his mouth. What should he do?

BDS
Dentist,
Bad smell comes out from his mouth. What should he do?
This is called halitosis or bad breath. You ll have to have a professional calling done and use mouth washes after food. Try using floss before brushing both day and night. If your trouble persists even after tat then you ll hv to work out on your diet chart. Coz certain sulphur containing foods r found to produce this bad breath.

I am decided to wear braces for teeth but my dentist want to remove two upper teeth and two lower teeth But my friends saying that by removing teeth it effects your eye. Is it true it causes any effect on eye, it effects any another body part or it causes any effect on future?

Dear lybrate-user, for better alignment of teeth, we need to create some space in the jaw towards which the teeth will move over the course of treatment. If you go ahead without extraction, the existing teeth in your jaw will become crowded and overlap one another due to lack of space. Hence, such extractions are necessary during most orthodontic treatments (braces). Also, unlike what was traditionally believed, these extractions do not adversely affect your eyesight or any other part of your body. These notions are totally mythical and have no scientific basis. Please go ahead.

I have mouth ulcer problems from 2 days Please give me suggestion to overcome this problem.

I have mouth ulcer problems from 2 days Please give me suggestion to overcome this problem.
If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

Non-Steriodal Anti-Inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen and Naproxen are the most common recommendations to be taken before and after the root canal treatment. However, every patient should consult a dentist as medical conditions for taking these medicines may vary.

Hi am 26 years male. I have a problem of bad breath from my mouth. Please advise me what to do.
Sometimes long term medications are also responsible for bad breath. And the other reason for this condition is due to accumulation of plaque and debris which is not easiely removed with your daily brushing, so consult nearest dentist for scaling.

Hello lybrate-user, If you want to loose fat you should get enrolled in a gym with a good trainer. Chewing gums will not help you in any way. Regards

Gap can be closed by composite fillings. If you want bright white teeth then you have to go for teeth bleaching from dentist. Visit to a dentist for examination and proper treatment.

This is age change but it occurs fast when you do not maintain oral hygiene properly. Treatment of the gaps depend upon the size, location. Sometimes it can not be filled. To prevent further damage you have to be punctual about hygiene and follow-up visits to dentist.

Sir if we clean the tooth in hospital it will become loose why because sir right or wrong sir this sentence.

Sir if we clean the tooth in hospital it will become loose why because sir right or wrong sir this sentence.
All individuals requires scaling (cleaning) to be done atleast once in 6 months to maintain our oral hygiene clean. Our toothbrush is not much finely designed to clean all the plaque and calculi in the interdental areas of the teeth, which is the area where most of the calculus accumulate much and has to be removed regularly using scalers by the dentist. For some patients tooth will will appear to be firm only because of the calculus holding it, not the bone. In such cases after removing those calculus by scaling results in loosening of the tooth, but scaling is actually good since it removes the calculus and maintains your oral hygiene safe.
