First of all it should be understood that malodor is caused by many reasons like decayed teeth, poor oral hygiene, gastric problems,Sinusitis, liver disorder, diabetis, smoking, alcohol consumption, tobacco chewing. You should consult a dentist to check for any problem in your oral cavity.If the problem is due to calculus and plaque it can be removed by scaling and polishing of your teeth. Flossing of teeth and tongue cleaning using tongue scraper should be done daily.
It seems that you have got heavy tartered teeth with some infection and probably some decay in the teeth.
Doing brush and counting for how many time you are doing brush is not important but it is important how you do brush.
You do brushing ups and down while doing from out side so that your brush hair will go in between the teeth and clean the space bet. teeth.
While doing inside do from downward to upward in lower teeth and upward to downward in upper teeth.
This method will clean your part between the teeth and so tarteres will not formed.
You get dental check up and do the scaling
Halitosis or bad breath has many reasons. One of the common reasons being accumulation of deposits & stains around your teeth. These deposits cause foul breath.
Another common reason is decayed tooth/teeth.
Brushing, Rinsing & Flossing your teeth will help to some extent.
Using an anti-bacterial mouthwash will also help.
It is best to go in for a dental check-up.
Bad breath can be due to a number of causes like :-
Local factors like oral hygiene (Improper brushing technique,food lodgment on the tooth surfaces,smoking, etc) or
Systemic factors like Diabetes, Gastric refluxes resulting from dietary components rich in garlic, onions etc.
The first thing is to visit your Dentist and get the cause of your condition diagnosed. Also get a professional cleaning (scaling/Oral Prophylaxis) done. Maintain good oral hygiene by simple procedures of brushing twice a day, rinsing and flossing after every meal. Start using a mouthwash regularly and drink plenty of water thru the day.

Hello. I had a deep cleaning last Friday for the whole mouth. Now the left side is OK to eat, but the right side is still not comfortable, not very hurt though. Part of my gums are still swollen and white ( at the front teeth and at the inner side of the lower right gum). I think I had it before the cleaning already. I did see a little bit blood when I brush when floss, but just slightly. However when I lay down in bed, I have a lot of saliva, sometime mix with milk and a little of blood. But during the day time, my mouth is very dry. The doctor gave me chlorhexidine mouth rinse, and I still brush and floss every day. Is this something normal with deep cleaning? Or I have other troubles.
Hi, so I have severe pain in my gums and they are a bright red. They bleed a little bit when brushed. No matter how many times I brush my teeth or how many breath mints I take my breath still isnt the best smelling and its not normal for me. Also I had a little lump under my chin which in 2 days turned into 3 and its very painfull. The inside of my mouth is a mix between a yellow-ish and a red and the inside of my throat hurts badly. Its been this way for about 5 days I thought it would go away on its own. Im scared now whats going on?
Hi- This morning I woke up with a sore throat and runny nose. I also had a swollen gland on the right side of my neck under my jaw. It s not sore, and feels hard to touch. Also during the day the swelling goes down occasionally (after a saline gargle etc.). Should I be worried about these symptoms? Or is this just a simple common cold?
When in the toilet I got a bit of bleach on my hand, immediately I got it under a cold water tap and just carried on my normal day. At around 8:00 I noticed a kind of chemical taste in my mouth.

I washed it off straight away when I first got contact and I may through the day bit at skin or picked at it, I used some mouthwash and drank some milk but I m worried I ll become sick, do I need help
I have been experiencing thick, bubbly, sticky saliva for many months now - following about two years of using hydrogen peroxide for a mouthwash. I ve seen two dentists and two oral surgeons; surgeons tested my salivary glands and concluded my saliva was normal. They could not diagnose my problem. Told me the saliva must thicken after it is released from the glands. and in my mouth...Both believed the hydrogen peroxide was not the cause. My only relief is when I m eating or chewing gum (xylotol). Is there any antidote, assuming it was the hydrogen peroxide that brought it on?
i went to the dr. yesterday for sore throat, body aches. was told it was not strep but viral infection. she did notice a pus pocket on the right side of my throat, I was prescribed antibiotics (Z-pack) for 5 days. My dr told me to gargle with salt / warm water. My question is should I try to remove the pus pocket myself with a q-tip, as that is what I have been reading online that several people remove the pus pocket with q-tip.
