It . It is said that about 90% of bad breath comes from either broken down old silver fillings, washed out bonded fillings, loose crowns or bridges which are seeping out a cement smell, or periodontal disease. If all these areas check out as negative then i would suggest you check next with your general doctor who migh refer you to a GI specialist. The odor may be systemic. As for recommended mouth washes, we have had great resuslt with cloysis, a chlorine dioxide mouth rinse found either online or in health stores. http://www.closys.com/index.html. Read more...
You . You are not alone in your quest to find a solution to bad breath. One of the biggest reasons people get bad breath is because they neglect to clean their tongue. However, it seems you are making sure that gets done. Therefore, my next recommendation would be to perhaps switch your tongue cleaner to the one most recommended by dental professionals; breath rx tongue cleaner. You can usually pick one up at your local pharmacy. We make sure to give every patient one at prosmiles because we believe in them so much. If you feel that gargling with the breath rx mouthrinse isn't doing the job for you i would recommend gargling with a solution of 50% hydrogen peroxide and 50% water. That tends to do the job because bacteria that tends to cause bad breath lives in areas without a high content of oxygen and by gargling with the recommended solution oxygen is released in those areas thereby killing the bacteria. If you'd like, you can read more about this on a blog we posted a while back at. Read more...
I . I think that the other doctors have given you many of the possibilities that could be causing your problem, and truly the only way to know what is causing your breath issue is through proper professional evaluation. If you eliminate the possibility that there is an underlying medical or dental problem then i suggest a mouthwash that I have found to work better than anything else even in difficult cases. It is called "smart mouth" by trident inc. And it is non-alcoholic. It is a two part system and is based on a zinc ion formula. My patients have found it to be very effective. It's certainly worth a try. Good luck! Read more...
