Halitosis: Bad breath can be caused by many different factors, including sinus infections, periodontal problems, smoking, cavities, acid reflux, and your diet. Address all of these possibilities with your dentist and physician, and I'm confident that your problem will at least be minimized, and hopefully eradicated.

Bad breath: You have taken the right steps with commitment to good oral hygiene & regular dental check-ups. Make sure you are cleaning between teeth (floss or WaterPik) daily as well as brushing 2x/day. There are many other reasons for bad breath, however. Please talk to BOTH your dentist and your Physician about your problem. See if they can nail down the cause and arrive at a solution.
