Once your food is digested, chemicals that cause odour can be absorbed into your bloodstream and from there into your lungs; these chemicals then are exhaled. Diets high in protein and sugar also have been associated with bad breath. Infections in the mouth, such as dental caries (tooth decay Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. ), periodontal (gum) disease or mouth sores related to other conditions may contribute to bad breath. Dry mouth also can cause bad breath. Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products also can cause bad breath, You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person.

You are having sensitivity issues in your teeth which can be difficult to control at times, for time being use anti sensitivity toothpaste, but I doubt that without adequate diagnosis and treatment by the dentist you will get any relief.

It sounds like a lymphadenopathy which seldom develops into a serious problem but often subsides and may give acute symptoms. Better visit a dentist.

You must be talking about last teeth in your mouth. If tooth is blocked to develop and causing severe pain, it might require extraction. X-ray is require to know the status of particular tooth.

Gum diseases can be treated and reversed in their initial stages very easily. By getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed by a dentist, there is a chance that they can get better without much ado.

Hello, to replace the missing teeth one can go for fixed or removable artificial teeth choice is yours. For the tooth of other side you must visit dentist for proper check up. All teeth are held by the bone of jaw as the age advances the bone resorption occurs leads to weakend the tooth to hold in there place and causes the tooth mobility. Thank you drjagrati.

Homeopath,
What is the way to get rid of bad mouth odour so that my girlfriend doesn't have to complain about it while I kiss her?
Brush atlst thrice a day. At night brush with baking soda and rinse your mouth with lemon water. Use mouth wash. Chew few holy basil leaves. Chew neem leaves at night. Visit a dentist. And if you have pyorrhoea then by homoeopathic treatment this will be corrected. Soo you can contact me through Lybrate.

When I was 11 year old I had a braces treatment for 4 years to make my teeth perfect but after braces have removed I did not follow the retainer treatment and now my teeth become like before the braces.

Thanks for your query. There is no other way than going back to braces. You have done a big mistake by not using the retainers. So consult your orthodontist and get it treated. I hope I have answered your query. Take care.

I am 71 years old male having only 4 lower natural teeth and wearing a denture for the remaining ones. Often, when I wake up in the morning or in the middle of the night, I find some spit on one side of my lips or on the pillow. Is there any remedy to avoid such occurence?

BDS
Dentist, Jabalpur
Hello, Uncle its normal. It's because once you loose your natural teeth your vertical height of mouth and hence saliva drools out just like in small baby with no teeth. Don't worry! if it troubles you a lot then you can consult me for fixed teeth.
