Can You Tell Me If I Can Completely Cure My Periodontal Disease?

November 18th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Mitsas. I have periodontal and I’m currently getting treatment, I have bad breath too. Does the disease completely cure after treatment and does the bad breath ever go away completely?

I have also read here that you brush after breakfast, I do brush as soon as I get out of bed then have my breakfast and after about an hour I use my mouthwash before I leave the house? Is this wrong, should I first have breakfast then brush my teeth? I hope you can help me with this problem.

I think I could have Trench Mouth, is this disease serious?

June 12th, 2012
Q.

Hiya Dr Jose Zurdo, a few quick questions – I’ve recently developed very painful ulcers in my mouth and quite bad breath, I’m finding it very painful to brush my teeth and even eating. A friend told me it could be something known as Trench mouth or ANUG ? is this a real disease, i’ve never heard of it. My dentist can’t fit me in for a week or so, is there anything i can do to ease the pain? and if it is this disease is it very serious? Thank you.

I have a problem with bad breath and with no sign of gum disease I don’t know what’s causing this, any suggestions?

June 12th, 2012
Q.

Hiya, I have a problem with bad breath. It started when i was a teenager, I’ve never had a bad diet or bad hygene but i find about 20 or 30 minutes after brushinh and with out eating or drinking anything i get bad breath. It gets very embaressing. I tried chewing gum but i dont like it and is not allowed where i work? I feel like whatever i do i cant escape from this problem. Last time i went to the dentist he told me there was no signs of gum disease and just to floss and uses mouthwash but this hasn’t helped. Any suggestions?

My boyfriend’s gums bleed when brushing and his breath smells. Is gum disease contagious?

March 30th, 2012
Q.

Hi Dr Ian Dunn,

I think my boyfriend has gum disease! He has really bad breath and bleeds quite a lot when he brushes his teeth. His teeth also look in quite bad condition. I am wondering if it is contagious? I have very good dental hygiene and always brush my teeth twice a day, but am I at risk from kissing him? Can it be passed on through saliva? And if so, will I know if I have caught it?

Thanks for your time

What can be causing my breath it’s really affecting my confidence?

January 19th, 2012
Q.

Hi i hope you can help me as i do not seem to be getting any help from any one or seem to be getting any correct answers from any one. I have been having problems with bad breath and bleeding gums for nearly 20 years now. As far back as i could remember its been hapning since i was about 8 years old and i am 28 now. I do admit i was very lazy in brushing my teeth when i was young and i know now that it was the cause of bleeding gums… i have visited the dentist couple of years ago to clean my teath but the bleedin kept on coming back. I have just recently visited the dentist again to clean them and the bleeding has stopped. The first visit i made to this dentist i started bleeding again after 1 week of cleaning my teeth so i went back again and the dentist cleaned the teeth under the gums with a mecanical tool and since then i have gone 2 months without bleeding which is the longest ive been with. The problem i have regarding bad breath i thought was due to the bleeding but i still suffer from the problem.. What do you think is the problem.. One thing i have noticed is tha my mouth does dry up a lot and that might be the cause of it. I have tried everything and it is really embarrasing to talk to people face to face.. I mentioned this to the dentist who said i have to visit the doctor..He also mentioned that the plaque that was hardened underneath my gums could be the cause of a dry mouth.. One other thing i do suffer from is indegestion and heartburn on a regular basis which obviously means i have too much acid inside me, could that not be the cause of bad breath? My bad breath is so bad that it even smells straight after i have brushed my teeth and also after anything i eat…Is there a cure for this or do i have to keep on suffering, if there is a cure what is it? and is it related to my acid problem i have? I have also had a filling done on my teeth but since then it has gone really sensative and is not improving, it is more sensative to cold food and drink and to cold air, the dentist said it will go away but it has been 3 months and not improved even with using sensodyne toothpaste.. Please help i cannot live with this bad breath problem anymore.. thank you so much for taking the time to read this far!!

I have developed ulcers and have bad breath, do I have gum disease?

November 28th, 2011
Q.

Hello Jose. I have an embarrassing problem. I’m a 19 year old girl. My gums have always bled slightly when brushing but recently ive developed about 5 mouth ulcers, 1 on my lip about 1cm! its too painful to talk sometimes. I brush but im put off my appetite and can taste what feels like disgusting breath. i dont know if this is consequent to my ulcers but my teeth are aching a little too. also, maybe it is relevant to tell you that i am on the contraceptive pill and i have a hormonal deficiency. Darent talk to anyone about this! Thanks

Every morning I wake up with a gummy build up on my two front teeth and bad breath, what could this be?

October 13th, 2011
Q.

hello Dr Dunn I need help with my teeth/gums? Every morning I wake up with like a gummy build up on my two front teeth and terrible terrible breath no matter how long I brushed my teeth for the night before. the build up usually just wipes off and the bad breath temporarily leaves when I get up and have brushed my teeth. Being as this has been the case for some time now I was wondering would this sort of thing come as a result of my diet or do I have gum disease? whether it is gum disease or not I would like to know both if you know what it is and how stop it occurring as its both disgusting and annoying. thank you very much
