Bad breath caused due to the types of food you eat and certain unhealthy lifestyle habits.

How and why do food you eat affect your health?

The food that we eat gets broken down in our mouth initially. Eating, drinking and chewing some strong-odored foods like onion, garlic, coffee or sticky chocolates tend to stuck between teeth and the odor lingers in the mouth for a long time even after brushing. Neither brushing nor flossing the teeth and mouth daily completely remove food particles in mouth thereby promoting the growth of bacteria between teeth, around gums and on the tongue. This bacterial growth is the main reason for bad breath and foul smells. Antibacterial mouthwashes can help to reduce the growth of bacteria thereby preventing the odor.

Bad breath symptoms

Major symptoms include a white coating on the tongue, especially at the back side, dry mouth, the buildup of plaque around teeth, sourness or bitter metallic taste in mouth, Post-nasal drip.

Other reasons why do you have bad breath:

  • Dry mouth  A lack of saliva in the mouth can cause accumulation of bacteria in the mouth contributing to bad breath.  Dry mouth is caused due to lack of drinking water throughout the day by certain medications or medical conditions. Hence you are required to drink plenty of water throughout the day.
  • Cavities  Tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health condition are the possible reasons for bad breath.
  • Medical conditions Sinus infections, strep throat, and acid reflux cause the odor to last long in the mouth. As the oral cavity is the gateway for infections in our body, it is essential that immense care should be taken to prevent the entry of infectious pathogens.
  • Alcoholic mouthwashes  Mouthwashes that contain alcohol content in it dries out the mouth leading to bad breath. To avoid drying out your mouth, use alcohol-free mouthwash for long lasting freshness.
  • Smoking and tobacco habits If you chew tobacco or smoke cigars, brushing alone will not assure you for tidy teeth and clean oral hygiene. It is quite better to quit the habit of smoking or reduce it to see better results.

With advancements in cosmetic dentistry procedures, bringing a perfect smile in you is no more a harder task! The Dental veneers have created a revolution in the field of cosmetic dentistry in recent years thereby masking all your imperfections and give a chance for you to see a whole new and perfect smile. Veneers are customized thin shells of porcelain that can be used to correct a single tooth, a few teeth or a whole smile. They cover any kind of tooth stains, repairs chipped tooth or corrects misalignment. If you are willing to have the best and affordable Dental Veneers in Delhi, proceed forward to visit the Orion Orthodontic and Dental Care Centre where we provide high-class services to all your dental problems.


There are mainly two types of dental veneers: Composite is made by the dentist when a person comes for the procedure and applied directly to the teeth surface whereas porcelain is prepared in the laboratory after taking a teeth impression.


Generally, the entire procedure can be done in two visits where our dental team first take the impression of teeth and match the shade. In the second visit, the dentist fit the veneers. This can be done under local anesthesia in case of any discomfort. Following are the steps to be undergone,

Step 1: Trimming the tooth-This involves trimming of enamel part same as thick of veneer so that it does not look bulged.

Step 2: Checking the shade- The dentist determines the best shade depending on teeth lying on both sides

Step 3: Taking the impression- Impression of a particular tooth and surrounding teeth with gums are taken by the dentist to design the veneer in the lab. The impression is just like a xerox copy of teeth structure that is aiding in fabricating the veneers.

Step 4: Placement of temporary veneer- It is not compulsory to have a temporary veneer unless the dentist recommends it. Since the designing of veneer takes a period of 2 weeks temporary veneers can be used.

Step 5: Pre-bonding Evaluation-The dentists check for best fit of veneer and evaluates the dimension so that it sticks accurately.

Step 6: The final cementation-In this step, etching is done using gel to make the enamel surface rough so that it holds the bonding agent. Cement is placed in the veneer and it is safely delivered into place.

Step 7: Final evaluation- Now the veneer is firmly bonded to the original tooth. Excess cement present is gently scraped off and to ensure that veneer is rightly placed, your bite is evaluated. Regular Follow up is done to check if there are any discomforts or complications.

Dental Tourism For All on Four Dental Implants

At Orion Orthodontic & Dental Care Centre we offer all on four dental implants at a very competitive rate. Dr. Anupam Sinha our dental implantologist has worked extensively for providing immediate Dental implants post extraction along with immediate loading protocol. Currently, we are offering a CAD CAM-based protocol for our overseas patients which makes the treatment results more predictable. With this protocol, a scan of the jaw is used to determine the exact width and length of the dental implant suitable for your case and the treatment plan is customized based upon your bone morphology and bone density on a 3D simulation software. This helps to reduce your actual chair time by half. Also as a splint is used during the surgical procedure it makes the treatment results more predictable.

Further, the immediate loading prosthesis is designed in the same simulation software and the prosthesis is delivered either the same day or within 2 days of the surgery.

At Orion, since we are located within the confines of a hospital we provide inpatient facilities in case you are interested. This would essentially mean that if you desire, we have an admission facility at the Hospital, with a monitoring post the surgery although our local patients prefer to go home. 

An additional benefit we provide at Orion is the anaesthetist. This allows us to operate under conscious sedation in case you have a phobia of dental surgical procedures which allows you to be semi-conscious while the procedure is being performed. This can of course be provided only in case you desire such a facility at an additional cost of Rs 10,000. ( 138 $ U.S.D)


The charges for all on four per jaw at Orion is 3450$ U.S.D . This is not inclusive of the hospital stay(90$ USD per day) or anaesthetist charges(138$ USD). For both jaws the cost would be 6900$ U.S.D. Although there are other cheaper options available we would like to offer the best and the most predictable treatment option to our patients who are flying in for dental implants as follow-ups are limited by geographical constraints. 

Usually, we request for a 2 week stay in Delhi for the procedure as the splint and temporaries require us to outsource the work and a certain amount of time in hand is always more comfortable.


Why are there so many types of braces? Metal braces V/s Ceramic Braces V/S Ceramic braces with metal inserts

Metallic braces and Ceramic labial braces work in the same manner but the Ceramic braces generally have more friction between the wire and the bracket slot due to which the movement over the treatment period can be slightly delayed. To overcome this problem the Ceramic braces can come with metal inserts in the slot where the wire sits. These Ceramic braces with metal slot/insertss have reduced friction and allow the bracket to slide over the wire much better. When we are using pure ceramic the treatment duration may get increased by a few months.
Difference between Self-Ligating brackets and regular brackets
All braces have a slot cut into their face through which the wire passes through.
In normal braces the wire is held into the slot either by using steel ligature wire or by using elastic modules. The elastic modules have the highest amount of friction as they actively hold the wire into the slot. This in turn causes the wire to bind against the bracket and leads to increased friction.
Self- Ligating brackets have a window which covers the slot which makes the slot in to a four walled enclosure. This helps to enclose the wire within the four walls and it thereby hold the wire in place.
Self- Ligating brackets are broadly of two types-
a) Self-Ligating brackets with active clips- These brackets have an active Niti clip which in although does not push the wire in actively in the initial stages but in the later stages of treatment push the heavier wires in actively and this in turn leads to a better torque expression.
b) Self-Ligating brackets with passive clips- These brackets have a forth wall which slides aver the slot and does not actively push the wire into the slot. Some believe that the torque expression suffers on this account so the final orthodontic results are not as good.
