  • Malodor which is called halitosis, in your case is due to bad oral hygiene as you have mobile teeth and lot of calculus. You got the front teeth removed but the bad oral hygiene and calculus deposits in the back teeth may have caused some gum infection and hence the bad odor. For this you have to maintain very good oral hygiene and use good anti microbial mouthwash. You can use warm saline rinses also 2-3 times a day. After doing warm saline rinses, you can massage your gums with some good gum paint available otc. Donot forget to floss and also clean the tongue regularly as deposits on tongue are one of major cause of halitosis.
