hello,
your bad breath may be due to calculus deposits and chronic gingivitis.. you better get an sub gingival scaling with a periodontist's consultation analysing your bone loss and infection status. after scaling should continue mouthwash for 3 weeks twice daily following brushing. as soon as possibile get treated by a dentist. take care.

Hi,
As you have multiple complains is is likely that you are suffering from anxiety neurosis.
For throat complain you might have pyorrhea or periodential infection or tarter deposited on teeth or under gingiva leading to infection in teeth and gums.this causes bad breath bleeding from gums and tongue coating.
consult dental surgeon and seek his advise.

Dental caries is a very common problem. Bacteria normally reside in the mouth. They, however, mix with the proteins present in the saliva (spit) to form plaque and attach to the hard enamel surface of the tooth. The bacteria feed on food sugars and starches and produce an acid. This acid eats into the tooth enamel damaging the tooth. What are the symptoms? Initially there may be no symptoms while the enamel is being eaten away. Later, tooth sensitivity may be noticed. There may be discomfort while eating sweet foods and hot or cold drinks or foods. If the cavity becomes very large or a tooth abscess develops which may be accompanied by pain, swelling or fever. This is why it is important to have frequent dental check ups. If it hurts, it is already too late. How is it diagnosed? A dentist may identify the areas of decay quite early. Sometimes dental X-rays may be advised.

Hi I have a couple questions to ask, do flossing and rinsing really make a difference? Is there a right way to floss? What are the best products to use? How do nutrition affect my teeth and gums? I worry about bad breath, what can I do? Can I really prevent and avoid cavities and gum disease? Can you give me tips to help avoid them?

I had 3 teeth filled on Monday afternoon. Two on top and a filling all the way in the back bottom right. The dentist had trouble numbing the tooth and I received several shots of novacaine. I was in much pain and went back yesterday. He filed down the filling and I got some relief. However, my tongue has no taste on the right side. I am still very sore but I think that is just from the shots. I called the dentist again today and was told to give it another week. How long should it take to get the sensation back on the right side?

I have been using loratadine allergy pills for a long time - more then 10 years. My sinus infections are so bad that my Dr put me on C0 Betahistine, (fluid and swelling in inner ear/Eustachian tube) so I stopped using my other allergy pills (I buy them at Costco). Would I be experiencing any withdrawal from my allergy pills? I have a weird restless feeling in my body, similar to when I was having to withdraw from prescription pain meds. I am also on my 3rd round of antibiotics, this one being moxifloxacin HCI. I was supposed to have my second sinus surgery last in 2013 (previous one in 2008), but I cancelled because my knee replacement surgery has not healed, and I wanted my body to deal with one thing at a time. Sorry I thought this was a free service. Thank you, Shirley Wiebe age 61

I have a very dry throat and a bit of blurry vision every so often. It s been about six hours since I ve taken it. What do you think? I m worried about an overdose. I have severe health anxiety.

Hello. I have been taking Lexepro for almost a month now, but for the last few days I have been feeling extremely dizzy and my stomach hurts about a few hours after being awake and mostly at night. I have GERD . Is there any possible way that the Lexepro is making the GERD worse, because I am wondering if I should try another anti depressant . I already had the flu once about two months ago, and I just now got over a sinus infection and an ear infection . I took Suprax.
