Go for proper physical examination. It may be start if tooth decay. If it is cavity get it filled quickly. And if there is black discoloration then you need to go for cleaning and bleaching. Brush regularly two times daily with proper brushing technique. Rinse your mouth after eating anything.

Most urgent treatment for your teeth is complete scaling (cleaning). Then the dentist will check which all teeth can be saved. Mobile teeth might have to be removed according to their condition. Doctor will also prescribe some mouthwash or gumpaint. Your pyorrhea progression is due to diabetes and should be controlled. So get regular checkups for diabetes from your gp or endocrinologist for better outcome of dental treatment.

Sir, if the problem is still there, that means cause is also there. Please read the causes and evaluate yourself for the problem. There have been myriad other reported causes of oral halitosis-. Deep carious lesions (dental decay)? which cause localized food impaction and stagnation recent dental extraction sockets? fill with blood clot, and provide an ideal habitat for bacterial proliferation interdental food packing? (food getting pushed down between teeth) - this can be caused by missing teeth, tilted, spaced or crowded teeth, or poorly contoured approximal dental fillings. Food debris becomes trapped, undergoes slow bacterial putrefaction and release of malodorous volatiles. Food packing can also cause a localized periodontal reaction, characterized by dental pain that is relieved by cleaning the area of food packing with interdental brush or floss. Acrylic dentures (plastic false teeth)? inadequate denture hygiene practises such as failing to clean and remove the prosthesis each night, may cause a malodour from the plastic itself or from the mouth as microbiota responds to the altered environment. The plastic is actually porous, and the fitting surface is usually irregular, sculpted to fit the edentulous oral anatomy. These factors predispose to bacterial and yeast retention, which is accompanied by a typical smell. Oral infections oral ulceration fasting stress/anxiety menstrual cycle? at mid cycle and during menstruation, increased breath vsc were reported in women. Smoking? smoking is linked with periodontal disease, which is the second most common cause of oral malodor. Smoking also has many other negative effects on the mouth, from increased rates of dental decay to premalignant lesions and even oral cancer. Alcohol volatile foodstuffs? e. G. Onion, garlic, durian, cabbage, cauliflower and radish. Volatile foodstuffs may leave malodorous residues in the mouth, which are the subject to bacterial putrefaction and vsc release. However, volatile foodstuffs may also cause halitoisis via the blood borne halitosis mechanism. Medication? often medications can cause xerostomia (dry mouth) which results in increased microbial growth in the mouth. There are a few systemic (non-oral) medical conditions that may cause foul breath odor, but these are extremely infrequent in the general population. Such conditions are:[22][23] fetor hepaticus: an example of a rare type of bad breath caused by chronic liver failure. Lower respiratory tract infections (bronchial and lung infections). Renal infections and renal failure. Carcinoma. Trimethylaminuria (" fish odor syndrome"). Diabetes mellitus. Metabolic conditions, e. G. Resulting in elevated blood dimethyl sulfide.[8]

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. You can come for a consultation (free of cost) in our clinic.

Naturally our teeth colour ranges from pearly white to pale yellow so everyone cannot hv white teeth. Get scalling n polishing done by dentist. If you r not happy with your teeth shade later, you can get bleaching done by dentist which'll lighten your teeth by 2-3 shades. Alternatively you can use a teeth whitening toothpaste such as snowdent after scalling. Whitening gels used daily along with customized dental trays provided by dentist r also available in the market. Avoid heavily coloured foods, tea n coffee, cool drinks, smoking n tobacco products as they stain teeth.

The normal colour of teeth is white with bluish tinges back ground appearance which sometime sis slightest yellow, the best way to maintain whiteness is to brush them twice after breakfast and before going to bed use listerine mouthwash, get them cleaned and polished if still not satisfied than get get them bleach and maintain them.

Tobacco stains teeth and significantly increases the risk of gum disease and oral cancer. If you smoke or use chewing tobacco, consider quitting. Counsel your kids not to start.
