Avatar m tn Hello, :) I am a 30 year old male and I have chronic bad breath. I think some of the reasons why I have bad breath is because, I have acid reflux, esophagus problems, and gum disease. I am currently going to the dentist to get everything taken care of. It's so hard to get rid of the bad breath and I don't know what to do. My question is: What are some of the best ways to get rid of bad breath? Thanks and have a great day!
Avatar m tn Food that becomes lodged between one’s teeth is another cause of bad odor, as the food rots and as it becomes a place for bad smelling bacteria to grow. For most people the day to day problem of bad breath is caused by bacteria, especially on the tongue, but also on the gums. Treatment involves brushing of the tongue or, more effective, scraping of the tongue several times a day. Tongue scrapers come as a an individual item, but also as an attachment to the common tooth brush.
Avatar f tn Especially if the only thing wrong with her is bad breath...! Chances are, it could just be her teeth, but....My Yorkie..( 15 years ) had very bad breath...and was acting normal. Eating normal. She would have an occassional accident in the house and needed to get out more often at night....it turned out to be Kidney Failure. Now don't panic...I'm not saying your dog has kidney failure just because she has bad breath...
Avatar m tn A loose crown can lead to lodgement of bacteria under it and cause bad odour.Other causes of bad breath from mouth are tooth decay, sinus disease or gum diseases or reflux disease. Tonsilloliths can also cause bad breath, sore throat, white debris, difficulty in swallowing and tonsillar swelling .These are only possibilities. Seeing a doctor for accurate diagnosis is important. Do keep me posted. Best luck and regards!

Avatar n tn The day before it was removed I went to the er becuse there was an abscess on my gums where the tooth was and it leaked. Anyways i was put on Amoxilcillin. Which I am still taking. My question is lately I have this bad breath and the most horrible taste in my mouth? What could be the cause of this? I know itsnot dry socket b/c i see the blood clot and everything looks healthy there and there is no increase in pain. Just a periodic ache. Any help would be deeply appreciated.
Avatar n tn The most common causes of bad breath are infection and/or bacteria that are present on the gums (gingiva) and tongue. Infection of the tonsils is a much less common cause. Infection of the teeth themselves (dental abscess) are serious and not uncommon. Food that becomes lodged between one’s teeth is another cause of bad odor, as the food rots and as it becomes a place for bad smelling bacteria to grow.

Avatar n tn A root canal was performed and then the crown was fitted. Recently I noticed bad breath. After a while I figured out that the source of the bad breath was the gum area right above the crown. If I rub my finger in the gum area just above the crown, it smells really bad. I can even smell it in the floss after I have flossed the crown tooth. My dentist did the ususl once-every 6 months cleaning but the smell persists.
Avatar f tn I have bad teeth, never took care of them and I am now paying dearly. Let me start off by letting you know my history as short as I can make it. Diagnosed with ITP in 2007. Had splenectomy and in recovery from surgery I developed multiple PE's (they were ginormous). Was put on blood thinners until about 2 years ago when my new Hema took me off the thinners. About 1 1/2 years later I developed gout and was unable to walk for several days.
Avatar m tn Sverige, I'm so sorry to read that Ur sinus issue is causing U to even entertain the thought of Not wanting to live @ times. I don't know what state Ur in, but in Calif it's now law that everyone has to have medical ins. I too have bn having a similar sinus issue like Urs. Only I smelling this horrindous odor.
Avatar f tn I've always been a worry wart, but never like this. The dentist didn't mention an abscess, just a tooth infection. Are they the same thing??? It's really weird, bc I don't have pain or swelling in that area.

Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Bad breath (halitosis) could be due to local or systemic causes. Local causes like tooth infections, tooth abscess or periodontal disease. Some medications like dilantin and calcium channel blockers like nifedipine can cause bad breath. It is more common in smokers, in people with poor dental hygiene, with vitamin deficiencies and is known to be associated with systemic disorders like liver disease.

3089343 tn?1340880848 My pain started with an swollen painful lump on the left side of my neck. Doctor took a look in my mouth and told me it was an infection from a bad tooth. Since then I have had the tooth removed and my mouth has healed. Dentist however told me that the swelling and pain in my neck was not caused by my bad tooth because they were on oppisite sides.
1644117 tn?1300978433 My cats gum line looks exactly like you're describing - Jade has very bad teeth and so far, has had one infected fang and three others pulled due to abscess. Her breath used to be horrible and just like you describe Merlin's to be, but with the teeth pulled and a cleaning once a year, her breath is perfect. I am especially concerned with your description of the *dime sized raw spots.* This is all Very painful for Merlin so please get him an appt with your vet, asap.
Avatar n tn Surgical removal of the abscess as a whole is required. The abscess capsule needs to be removed as well. Once the abscess has been removed, the inciting tooth needs to be extracted, even if it is still firmly attached. Ideally the wound should be left open and filled with antibiotics. Common treatments of the open wound include antibiotic beads, antibiotic swabs/sponges, gels, ointments and manuka honey.
Avatar f tn Ok so for the past I'd say 3 years now I've had this swollen lymph node on the back of my neck o the right side its not painful at all I can't even tell its there unless I feel for it I've been watching it and in the 3 years I've had it it hasn't grown anymore its been the same size my grandfather gave me 6 pills of 875 mg augmentin to take to see if it would help and I think it shrunk it a little bit but not sure but I also have another lymphn node swollen o the let side of my jaw that also is
Avatar f tn Or just get all your teeth pulled out, which is about $100 a tooth, at least my dentist is. It sounds awful but you will not have pain or any abscess from infections! Hope this helped, GOID LUCK!!!!
