Sometimes doing brushing multiple times does not help if it is not done in right manner, especially when teeth are mal-aligned. Also bad breath has multiple reason associated with it could be in oral cavity, gastric and bowel problem. So please consult nearby dental surgeon for better guidance.
Hi, for yellow teeth you need to get a professional cleaning done. If that does not help then you may go for teeth whitening. 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.
Hi one of the most common reasons for bleeding gums is gingivitis. In easy terms, gingivitis is inflammation (swelling) of gums. It is mostly dude to the accumulation of plaque over a long period. The plaque becomes hard is causes inflammation leading to bleeding when you brush or eat anything hard. You should immediately see a dentist to get a round of scaling (cleaning) done.
