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.

My honest suggestions to you are: 1. Drink plenty of warm water 2. Use povidone iodine throat spray or gargles for a week or ten days, to reduce the inflammation and bad breath. 3. If you have any problems related to the acid reflux, it has to be treated with proton pump inhibitors. 4. Consult your dentist for a complete evaluation. 5. Avoid chilled food and beverages/smoking/coffee/alcohol if any.

I have a tonsil stone. A whitish substance come from my mouth which smells very bad .what should I do to get rid of it.

BDS (Implantologist)

Hi our mouth and tonsil are coated with mucus lining. Along with this lining, we have no. Of pits &crypts which vary from person to person. It's in these pits & crypts that bits of food, bacteria, and other debris get stuck. The debris calcifies or hardens turning into tonsil stone. This debris and bacteria release sulfur compound which is usually the main reason for the foul smell. Rinsing your mouth every time you eat with mouthwash (alcohol-free) will help to freshen your breath & kill the majority of bacteria in the mouth. Brushing properly with proper brushing technique will sweep any food bits, bacteria, and other debris. Change your toothbrush every 2-3 months. Although it's not performed as often as it was, sometimes a tonsillectomy or surgical removal of tonsils is the best way to prevent tonsil stones. Think of your tonsils like the appendix of your mouth. They help your immune system, but if they're causing you trouble, you can live without them. Have an apple, carrot, cucumber, water nuts in your daily diet. Avoid dairy products, sugar, processed food. Dairy products can cause a buildup of white coating on your tongue & buildup in tonsils & throat that leads to bad breath.

Certain things you can follow to prevent bad odor Every six months get a cleaning /scaling done which helps to remove calculus and deposits. Brush after every meal and floss, preferably twice a day. Drink plenty of water .sometimes dry mouth can cause bad breath. Start using mouthwash (alcohol-free ).mix 10 ml of water in 10 ml of mouthwash n swish for 30 secs in your mouth. Scrap your tongue every day after brushing to remove bacteria trapped on your tongue. Chew chewing gums, mouth refreshers. Avoid onions and garlic which cause bad breath.

Good morning take following measures for prevention of bad breath. 1. Brush 2 times to remove debris of food, compulsory at bed time. 2. Brush with baking soda once to remove acidity of mouth to prevent bacterial growth regular daily flossing to remove food debris 3. Scrap your tongue daily to remove the debris between tongue folds and taste buds. 4. Rinse your mouth with black or green tea or peppermint oil mixed with water if you have some dental problem it may supress the growth of bacteria 5. No smoking or tobacco chewing 6. Drink plenty of water to keep mouth moist. Use much fresh fruit and vegetables which will step up saliva flow between meals which will help washing of bacteria of teeth tongue and gums which is responsible for bad breath. If still problem persist consult dental surgeon.
