Bad breath can b caused fue to various reasons. Due to smoking n using tobacco products, dental prob such as decay teeth, unclean tongue, gum infections, reduced saliva n dry mouth, ill fitting dentues, salivary gland probs. Other diseases n infections which also cause bad breath r sinus infections, respiratory tract infections such as bronchitis n pneumonia, liver n kidney probs, diabetes, acid reflux from stomach etc. Get scalling done by dentist. Use proper brushing techniques. Brush, floss n use mouthwash twice daily. Massage your gums with your finger tips after brushing. Keep your tongue clean. Rinse your mouth well after each meal. Get your decay teeth filled. Visit your dentist for dental checkups every 6 months to detect n prevent dental probs. Inspite of these measures if bad breath persists,

Causes and Symptoms of Dry Mouth

BDS
Dentist, Navi Mumbai
Causes and Symptoms of Dry Mouth

When the salivary glands do not produce enough saliva, the mouth gets dry and uncomfortable. Due to certain conditions, such a phenomenon can occur and this condition is known as dry mouth or xerostomia. Xerostomia or dry mouth can occur due to multiple reasons. Read on more to find all about the different causes and symptoms of dry mouth.

Causes:

  1. Side effects of certain medications: Dry mouth occurs due to the effect of certain prescription and nonprescription medications. Drugs used to treat depression, pain, allergies, anxiety, epilepsy, obesity, nausea and psychotic disorders can cause dry mouth condition as a side effect. Sedatives and muscle relaxers can also cause dry mouth.
  2. Side effects of certain disease and infections: Certain diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, mumps, diabetes, hypertension, cystic fibrosis, anemia and Parkinson's disease can also cause dry mouth or xerostomia.
  3. Side effect of treatments: If the salivary glands are damaged due to certain reasons, then less saliva is secreted resulting in dry mouth. Certain treatments such as radiation treatments in the head and neck or chemotherapy sessions could indirectly cause dry mouth by damaging the salivary glands.
  4. Nerve damage: Dry mouth can also be due to a person suffering from nerve damage caused due to accident or surgery.
  5. Dehydration: Conditions like fever, excessive vomiting, diarrhea, excessive sweating, which cause dehydration can also cause dry mouth.
  6. Removal of salivary glands: Surgical removal of the salivary glands also causes dry mouth. 
  7. Lifestyle choices: Certain lifestyle preferences such as chewing tobacco or smoking can cause dry mouth.

Symptoms:
Dry mouth has several symptoms. If you have some or all of the symptoms mentioned below, then you are more than likely suffering from dry mouth.

  1. A sticky and dry feeling in the mouth. 
  2. The frequent feeling of being thirsty.
  3. A dry, parched feeling in the throat.
  4. The tongue being dry, raw and red.
  5. There is discomfort and problem while you are speaking or experiencing problems with chewing, tasting or swallowing food.
  6. Experiencing dry nasal passages, a sore throat or hoarseness in the voice.

Hello lybrate-user! you have to get an rct done immediately for your tooth which will help you get relief from the pain amd sensitivity. If you have the broken half of the tooth, take it with you to your dentist so that he/she can assess it and help in restoring your teeth back after the rct has been done.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.

Please note that you are having gum problems. Do not drink excess water rather wash your mouth and gums each time you take any food. Also do saline-water mouth wash daily before going to bed. Do get back after 2 weeks.

Toothpicks can be an alternative to use for flossing if dental floss is not available. Remember not to be too harsh while using it.

Getting a good night sleep before the root canal treatment is the best way to go as it would reduce anxiety and maintain the overall well being.

Hi thanks for the query pain in left gums can be because of many things such as food lodgement, phyorrea, or impacted wisdom tooth. It's difficult to suggest you anything without proper diagnosis, in my suggestion visit your dentist he can guide you better with proper diagnosis.

Rinsing your toothbrush thoroughly after using it everyday is necessary so as to remove all the leftover waste. Doing so will make it germ-free and healthy to use. Also, let it air-dry before using it again.

To remove the leftover food particles, it is very necessary to use a mouthwash after every meal during the orthodontic treatment.

I have problem with bad breath from mouth and nose bad taste in mouth I also have tonsils and often get tonsil stones some times problem with stomach acidity.

BDS, MDS - Periodontics, Ph.D.
Dentist, Pune
Bad breath or halitosis can be because of many reasons. It can be intraoral or extra oral. For intra-oral cause, get your teeth checked by a periodontist, and get them cleaned. Try to keep your mouth, gums, and tongue clean and your cavities filled.
