• 5 common reasons for ‘Bad Breath’ Halitosis

    Does bad breathe cause lack of self-confidence? It does! You try to withdraw yourself socially the moment you realize you have bad breath. This medical problem called halitosis can result from poor dental habits, which may be a major sign of other health problems. Sometimes, bad breath can also be made worse by the types of foods you eat and few other unhealthy lifestyle habits. So, it is critical to choose the right bad breath remedies. 

    Reason for Bad Breath

    According to scientists, the food eaten tends to break down in your mouth. As foods are digested, it is absorbed into the bloodstream. They are carried to your lungs and given off in your breath. If you eat foods with strong odours like garlic and onions, brushing and flossing — even mouthwash can cover up the odour temporarily. It will not go away until the foods have passed through your body. Make sure you brush and floss teeth daily, to ensure that the food particles do not remain in your mouth. You can prevent the promotion of bacterial growth between teeth, around the gums, and on the tongue. Sometimes, antibacterial mouth rinses also cuts down bacteria and eliminates the bad breath causes.

    No smoke

    Remember that persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth acts as a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. It occurs due to the build-up of plaque. Such infections, viruses, and bacteria cause the formation of toxins, which irritates the gums. If the disease extends or remains untreated, it can damage the gums and jawbone. The medical condition for dry mouth is termed as Xerostomia can result in bad breath. Remember that saliva is necessary to moisten the mouth, balance and neutralize the acids produced by plaque, as well as washing away dead cells that accumulate on the tongue, gums, and cheeks. Sometimes, when these infectious cells aren’t removed, they can decompose and can cause bad breath. Dry mouth may be a side effect of various medications, continuous breathing through the mouth, or salivary gland problems. Other bad breath causes include poorly fitting dental appliances, yeast infections of the mouth, and dental caries (cavities).

    Few tips for preventing or treating Bad Breath

    • Bad breath can be reduced or prevented by practicing good oral hygiene.
    • Always see your dentist regularly at least twice a year. After conducting an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning, you will be able to identify and treat periodontal disease, parched mouth, or other obstacles that may be the cause of bad mouth odour.

    Dental instruments


    • Remember to brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. No doubt it is advised to use herbal toothpaste as well, but fluoride works better on cavities. Brush teeth after you eat a snack or meal. Ensure that you replace your toothbrush every twice or thrice a month to prevent illness. Use floss or interdental cleaning devices to remove food particles and plaque that is stuck in between teeth once a day.
    • Dentures can be removed at night and cleaned thoroughly before being placed in your mouth the next morning.
    • Another habit that you need to stop for bad breath cure is to give up on smoking and chewing tobacco-based products. Seek help from your dentist for tips on kicking the habit.
    • Drink lots of water as it helps keep your mouth moist.
    • Chewing gums (preferably sugarless) or sucking on sugarless candy can stimulate the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria. Gums and mints containing xylitol always work as the best method.

  • Teeth in 1 day by CEREC at Dentzz – One Visit Dentistry

    CEREC is a very latest technology that we use at Dentzz Dental Care Centres, to create your ceramic crown, veneer, inlays/onlays or any porcelain restoration in the clinic in as less as an hour approximately. CEREC stands for Chair-side Economical Restoration for Esthetic Ceramics or is even known as CEramic REConstruction. CEREC works with a 3D tomography machine and Computer assisted technology to create or restore your teeth with perfect precision without having to pay multiple visits to the clinic.

    Instead of taking a conventional impression by putty or alginate to make a model of your existing tooth shape, our highly trained dentists in India at Dentzz take a ‘Digital Impression” using a wand camera. The image is then converted into a 3D computer model, which is used as a guide to design your new tooth/ crown/ veneer etc. Once our cosmetic dentist is happy with the design of the restoration, this data is sent to an onsite-milling machine, which fabricates your new tooth from a high quality ceramic block. Using 3-D image and specialized software, the technology is able to calculate the exact dimensions of each tooth to be restored; this eliminates the trial and error associated with conventional restorative dental work.

    At DENTZZ we offer you a unique and comprehensive dental experience unlike any other by using cutting edge technologies like CEREC.

    CEREC is the most advanced and precise way to restore the look and function of your teeth. It uses a ‘High Definition Camera’ to capture the dimensions of your teeth instead of conventional methods of impression making.

    Here are the common questions about CEREC reconstruction that patients have:

    A conventional ceramic Crown/ Veneer usually requires multiple visits to the dentist. One visit is needed to make a mold of the patient’s mouth, another to seat a temporary as well as for trials of permanent restoration and final sitting to fit the permanent crown/ veneer or any ceramic restoration. However, with CEREC, the whole process can be done in a single visit. Patients can even watch as the CEREC machine shapes their new crown or veneer.

    • Is there any pain or discomfort related to CEREC crown or veneer?

    Because CEREC is a relatively quick procedure, it is inherently not painful at all. As fewer sittings are required for fixing the restoration; less time sitting with your mouth held open, lesser discomfort from an ill- fitting temporary, and less tugging and pressure to get the permanent replacement in place all add up to a far less painful experience. Also, with a CEREC procedure, fewer injections are needed because the number of appointments reduces, and also the amount of drilling is minimized.

    • What is the CEREC tooth replacement made of, which material and how is it made?

    A CEREC restoration is created on the spot by a high-precision scanner that scans the image of the patient’s mouth to create an excellent replica of the original tooth. In most cases, restoration or replacements are created within an hour, rather than requiring nearly a week in the conventional method. Materials used for CEREC crowns/veneers/inlays/onlays include ceramic, porcelain and other resins.

    Advantages of CEREC

    • Fewer appointments required
    • Virtually pain-free nature of the procedure
    • Accuracy of the restoration compared to the conventional way of making them
    • Predictable results

    With traditional crowns, the longest part of the process is usually waiting for the actual crown to be fabricated, which usually takes anywhere from a few days to several weeks. However, using a CEREC, the tooth is milled right in the dental office. Instead of having to wait for a crown and come back for another appointment to have it placed, one can have the tooth in as little as an hour’s time.

    If you are experiencing:

    • Headaches
    • Migraines
    • Shoulder pain
    • Back ache
    • Orofacial pain
    • Tingling sensation of hands
    • Ringing in your ears
    • Popping or clicking of joints
    • Vertigo

    Then it’s time to pay a visit to the DENTIST.

    While traditional Dentistry focuses only on teeth and gums, Neuromuscular dentistry focuses on the harmonious relationship of the teeth and gums with the masticatory muscles, tempero-mandibular joints and nerves which together forms the masticatory system. If there is disharmony in any part of the masticatory system, all the other parts get affected. Neuromuscular Dentists are concerned with the entire functioning of the mouth including chewing, swallowing, speaking, biting, yawning, singing etc.

    Dentzz has been one of the pioneers of neuromuscular dentistry in India. Neuromuscular Dentistry deals with correcting the bite and aligning the jaw; to put it in simple words, Neuromuscular Dentist puts the jaw in its optimal position, thus relieving the symptoms associated with TMD (Tempero Mandibular Disorder).

    When the jaw is not aligned properly, the hard and soft tissues get affected which can cause various physiological problems such as:

    • Headache and migraines
    • Jaw pain
    • Neck ache
    • Shoulder pain
    • Ringing in the ears
    • Clicking or popping sounds in jaw joints

    The above problems are the manifestation of a BAD BITE!

    So what is a good bite?

    A good bite is:-

    1. When you bite, all your teeth should touch together at the same TIME.
    2. All the teeth should apply the same FORCE. The force of the bite should be evenly distributed.
    3. The muscles of your head and jaw should be in relaxed or rest position while the teeth are separate and should evenly work together without hyperactivity when the teeth are clenched together.
    4. The joint (TMJ) should be healthy and comfortable without any sign of clicking, popping or pain.

    As we know now, that the most important determinant of a good bite or occlusion are factors such as timing, force and location, and the only way to diagnose such problems with extreme precision is by using Hi-End technologies like T-SCAN, JVA( Jaw Vibrational Analysis) and EMG (ElectroMyoGraphy).

    What is T-Scan?

    It is a diagnostic device that records a patient’s bite force dynamics including timing and location of force. Unlike earlier methods of occlusion detection using special papers, waxes and pastes, T-Scan provides absolutely accurate, detailed and reliable information. Thanks to the T-Scan, we are able to detect trouble spots in places where there is contact of the upper and lower teeth which may cause a toothache or headache, sensitivity of teeth, damage of dental fillings, denture rupture, implant failure, gum disease, tooth loss, or temporomandibular joint disorders.



    EMG (Electromyography)

    Electromyography is a technique to measure the electrical activity of your masticatory muscles. This technology can be synchronized with the T- Scan to give us detailed and accurate findings and correlation of a bad bite to a sore muscle. It helps us in determining the underlying cause of a muscle spasm, or muscle tenderness or hyperactivity and muscle incoordination if any.



    JVA (Jaw Vibrational Analysis)

    JVA is a fast, non-invasive and repeated measurement of the vibrations of the Temperomandibular joint (TMJ), which aids in diagnosing various disorders of TMJ. It is based on the simple principle of motion and vibration. When smooth surfaces rub against each other it produces a little vibration and friction. But when these surfaces become rough, it produces vibrations of different wavelengths, which helps us determine various disorders of the joint.


    We at Dentzz have mastered the art of using such technologies and we pride ourselves on being the pioneers of Neuromuscular dentistry in India. We have successfully trained various doctors and treated various patients with myofacial symptoms and all other symptoms related to a bad bite.

    So the next time you are down with a headache, maybe it’s time to visit a ‘NEUROMUSCULAR Dentist’ instead of simply popping a painkiller.
