Hello, In the morning, everyday, when I wake up I seem to have bad breath. But along with that I also Seem to have a build up of saliva which is irritating. I am not to concerned but it s embarrassing if you have bad breath and need to go brush your teeth first thing in the morning. Also I wouldn t be able to talk because of this saliva. Please could you give me some advice in what I should be doing. Many thanks

Dentist 's  Response
Bad breath may be due to-
Poor oral hygiene.
Increased mucous secretion of saliva resulting in calculus,ie,calcific deposits around the teeth.
Systemic diseases.
I suggest you to get a thorough scaling and root planning done.
Use soft bristled toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste to clean your teeth.
Tongue scrapers can be used to floss your tongue.
Chlorhexidine mouthrinse can be used to gargle.
Consistency of saliva has to be checked.
If necessary,anti-sialogogues can be administered.
Hope this helps.
