Hi Dr. I always brush, Floss my teeth and I still have bad breath. Can you please tell me what medication could help me? This Coz me have a low self esteem.
Medical causes. of bad breath include sinus infection as well as helicobacter pylori infection. Tonsil infection or tonsillar crypts can also be responsible as can some medications or foods. I recommend you see your doctor for an exam and possible lab testing based on the history and exam. You are to be commended for your attention to dental health and by doing so you are eliminating one possibility.
Bad breath. Many possible causes, and taking pills often not the proper treatment. Important: See both Dentist and Physician to be evaluated for oral hygiene effectiveness, infected tonsils and/or sinuses, Gerd, interdental food impaction, diabetes, dietary choices or changes, affects of meds/OTCs/minerals/supplements, tongue coating, gum disease, dental abscess, bleeding, and other causes.
See Dentist. There may be dental or periodontal problems contributing to bad breath. See your dentist for exam.
