Kindly get scaling done and use mouth wash twice daily for 15 days. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene. Also notice that you are not constipated most of the times as this is also one of the reasons for halitosis.

Mouth ulcers can be due to various reasons like stress, deficiency, injury, etc. Please use mucopain for local application. You can take a multivitamin once daily for a month. Get a full mouth check up done for proper treatment.

History & The Toothbrush - A Vital Tool
The toothbrush is an important usable cleaning instrument, which we use regularly. Most people start their morning with the use of a toothbrush. It is not confirmed when the first toothbrush was invented, however it is supposed that around 3000 BC the first toothbrush came up in the form of a chew stick, which was used by ancient civilians. It was in the shape of a slim stick with a frayed end. Another early form of toothbrush was the bristle toothbrush. It was similar to what we use today, but this toothbrush was made up of solid hog's hairs connected to a handle made of bamboo or bone. The nylon-bristled toothbrush was introduced in 1938, and was rapidly accepted due to its good oral hygiene quality.
A revolution came in the market of America with the origin of electric toothbrushes in 1960. These toothbrushes were sold and produced on a mass level throughout the country.
Initially, the electronic toothbrush along with charger was invented in 1939 in Switzerland, but it did not come out in the open market until 1960. It was in 1961 when the company 'General Electric' came up with the rechargeable cordless toothbrush. The first rotary toothbrush, called the 'Interplak' became available to the general public in 1987. It was available in different models and varieties. It was believed that the Interplak was capable to eliminate plaque, and could prevent gingival bleeding better than other manual toothbrushes.
Nowadays, a number of varieties of toothbrushes can be found in the market at a large scale. Toothbrushes are used with fluoride for cleaning. Generally, dentists recommend the use of soft toothbrushes because hard toothbrushes can cause damage to your teeth. Soft bristles are also considered good at eliminating plaque and debris from the teeth. Besides this, dentists recommend the use of a small-handled toothbrush, as it can reach easily at each and every corner of your mouth. Toothbrushes are generally made of synthetic materials.
As there is such a wide variety of toothbrushes available today, this can create confusion for you when buying. Therefore it is necessary to consider that what kind of toothbrush will best suit your teeth. As an alternative, you can also use a powered toothbrush for cleaning your teeth, especially if you experience difficulties during brushing. You should replace your toothbrush within three months.
It is important that you are using a good quality toothbrush and changing it frequently. Undoubtedly, you would not like to have any diseases in your teeth, so by brushing regularly you can maintain healthy teeth as well as an attractive smile.

My teeth are disarranged what should I do?

Ask Free Question
Teeth being disarranged (or mal-aligned) can be due to a variety of causes ranging from hereditary to habit induced (like thumb sucking) there are a few different options that you can choose from if you would like to get them realigned or straightened 1. If you are in the period of a growth spurt (ie. The teenage growth spurt) you can get a myofunctional appliance to correct the anomaly 2. If you have crossed the growth spurt, then you will need to use fixed orthodontic appliance (normally called braces or'clips') for the fixed orthodontic appliance, you can choose from a variety of choices 1. Contemporary braces (the most common type of braces [clips as it is called by many]) 2. Ceramic braces (the ones working professionals or conscious people use [it does not show much metal] 3. Clear braces (the ones working professionals or conscious people use [only a thin wire is seen]) 4. Lingual braces (the ones working professionals or conscious people use [brackets placed on the inner surface of the teeth])

If teeth are broken very badly, then a crown is required to prevent further breakage. But if teeth are broken little, then you can wait till 16 years to get the crown done.

An ulcer lasting that long may be misdiagnosed, insist on getting a tissue biopsy done. Meanwhile keep the mouth clean. Swish & spit with warm salt-water after meals, till suggested otherwise.

You must go for replacement of the missing tooth always, either removable or fixed denture or implant. If left untreated, leads to drifting of the opposite and adjacent tooth towards the missing space.
