Bad Breath


Bad breath results from several different sources. Even though you brush your teeth you may have an underlying periodontal (Gum) infection. There are systemic disorders that can result in bad breath. Start with your dentist to rule out or treat local conditions as needed. If that fails then seek medical attention with a physician.

Many causes


There are many causes for bad breath, and they are not all due to an irregularity in the mouth. Hopefully you are diligently brushing, flossing and rinsing your mouth. The breath passes out from the lungs and throat, metabolic disorders can taint the breath, as can infection in the throat and sinuses. Bad breath is an indicator of an imbalance of health. Please get properly checked.

Wrong assumption


Your problem may be caused by cavities, acid reflux, gum disease, or diet... all the mouthwash and brushing in the world will not solve your problem, only mask it for 5 minutes. Seek the help of a local dentist and physician who can examine you and determine the cause.

Halitosis


There are many causes of unpleasant breath odor: bacteria growing on the tongue, mouth, gum, sinuses/nose, tonsils, esophagus, and stomach can produce some compounds with unpleasant odor. Clean the tongue, floss, use antibacterial rinse, treat postnasal drip, reflux etc..if treating these still not adequate, consult doc as some systemic illnesses such as diabetes does this as well. good luck

Causality


It depends on the cause of the bad breath. There could be a buildup of calculus (tarter) on your teeth that you can't remove. You may not be cleaning your teeth and associated oral tissues adequately. It may have a dietary cause. Certain disease processes can cause mouth odor. See a dentist for diagnosis and treatment.

Some advice


You need to see a dentist to check all your teeth and gums. If you have cavities, gum disease, or even just plaque, calculus and food stuck under your gums, you will have bad breath. Do you also floss? which is a key element to good oral hygiene. Do you use a tongue scraper (or even a tooth brush on your tongue)? First rule out any dental causes. There are also medical causes for bad breath.

No


There may be an underlying reason for your bad breath such as an abscess, an infection, localized food impaction due to gap (especially small gaps) between your teeth. The reasons may even related to your medical health. Brush once a day is good enough but you need to have a dentist exam for other reason. If the situation cannot be resolved, schedule an appointment with your medical doctor.

Bad breath


Add daily flossing (to get food particles deep between teeth) & rinsing mouth after every meal. Also brushing/scraping the tongue can remove food particles lodges there that can cause bad breath. Sinus conditions can also contribute to bad breath as can allergies with chronic post-nasal drainage. Controlling those conditions may help as well. If not, see dentist or ENT doc.

It Depends


How long has it been since your last dental exam? There are many things that can cause bad breath including mouth breathing at night, smoking, build up on teeth, an abscess, improper cleaning methods, excessive use of alcohol or alcohol mouthrinses, or even your diet or some systemic disease. You need to have a complete exam by your dentist and tell them that you have problems with your breath.

Evaluations


You have great oral care habits but you did not say if you had seen a dentist recently. If you have not had regular dental care it is time to see a dentist for an exam and teeth cleaning. If dentally you are healthy then see MD about medical conditions that can cause breath odors. Some of these are acid reflux and other GI conditions, sinus and post nasal drip, diabetes, and others. Good luck.

Determine Cause


Brushing alone may not be the answer. Cavities, periodontal problems, acid reflux, diet, and sinus infections can all contribute to halitosis. Please call your dentist for an examination and take it from there.

Determine Cause


You don't know where your bad breath is coming from. Periodontal disease, acid reflux, your diet, and cavities can all contribute. Brushing all day long will not address any of these issues. Start with a checkup at your dentist, and after your mouth has been restored and cleaned, see a gastroenerologist if the halitosis persists.
