Hi Dr, I had my wisdom teeth removal one year back; I was ok after removing the teeth. But since 2 months Iam facing the problem of bad breathe. Consulted a dentist and he said that it was good that you removed the wisdom teeth, because there is no space for it to grow. But I’ve the same problem with the right side teeth also, doctor said there is no space for it to grow and it got to be removed.Does this wisdom teeth problem leads to bad breathe. Dentist checked it and told me that there is no problem in my mouth and the bad breathe might be because of some ENT problem so it is better to show it to an ENT specialist so I went to the ENT doctor and done some tests and PNS Xray, after looking at that reports he said that iam too anemic and immediately consult a gynec but didn’t gave any medicines for bad breathe. I still have that bad breathe problem. Please tell me the reason why iam getting the bad smell from my mouth and help me in getting rid of this problem at the earliest.Please!!!

  • Wisdom tooth can lead to bad breath as it is located way back in the mouth and its quite difficult to reach that area and clean it. So, if your wisdom tooth has erupted than you should maintain a proper hygiene with good brushing techniques to get rid of food particles lodged in that area.

    Do brushing twice and floss at least once before going to bed. During brushing, clean your tongue properly as the debris can get stuch in the tongue. Don't let your mouth dry which can be an aggravating factor for bad breath. You can do mouthwash rinses daily and everytime you eat something, make it a habit of rinsing properly.

    Since you are anemic, so there are chances that it can be a causitive factor as in anemia, RBC count decrease thereby decreasing the oxygen supply and this will give chance for anaerobic bacteria to grow quickly...So, i recommend you to take iron supplements and iron rich diet.
