Have you seen a doctor for this problem?
May I know your age?

Are you on treatment for this problem?
also nasel septum deviation is there. so they advised me for the surgery
Let me explain.
Bad mouth odour can occur due to a few medical conditions.
It can be related to nose/throat inflammation such as sinusitis, GIT conditions such as reflux oesophagitis or due to dental issues.
What you would need for a permanent cure is to treat the sinus problems either regular steam inhalation and antibiotics or with surgeries.
In the meantime, I would suggest these
1. Take antiulcer drugs such as Syp Mucaine gel 5ml thrice a day before food
The above 2 drugs to be taken for 2-3 weeks
3. Use mouth deodorizing agents such as mouth sprays/menthol
4. Brush and floss your teeth twice a day.
These measure will give you temporary relief while you plan to consult your ENT surgeon for permanent cure.
Have you followed what I suggested?
Do you have any queries?
so the permenant solution is surgery right?
Permanent solution is by treating the cause which in your case would be treating the sinus problem
The treatment could be conservative or surgical
as decided by a clinical examination.
Your ENT surgeon will be the right person to make this choice.
Have you followed?
doctor advised surgery.
Then you would need to get this surgery done.
This should take care of the bad mouth odor problem too.
is there any problem after surgery. i heard sinus will come freequently even if we do surgery. is it true
There are different forms of surgery for the same problem.
actually my doctor advised nasel septum alainment as well as sunus surgery
All these are inter-related.
Treating the deviated nasal septum should reduce the occurrence of sinusitis as well as bad mouth odor.
So I would suggest you to get this treated, as you are having symptoms.
A few individuals who have asymptomatic sinus/deviated septum problems do not need such surgical treatment;
but as you are symptomatic, it is advisable that you take the surgery to avoid future complications.
There shouldn't be any recurrence following cure of deviated septum.
Have you followed?
Do you have any other query?
no thnk u
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
