Victim of Bad Breath
by Anna Marsh
Help!!! I have bad breath and I have tried EVERYTHING. I brush with 3 tooth brushes, I use hydrogen peroxide, brush my tongue and had three tonsil checkups. I asked my family members and no one can relate to me. I need a toothpaste without whitening because I have braces. Mouthwashes are good too. I will brush my teeth in the morning at around 6:00 and my breath will stink by 7:30. I want relief because I don't want to have to be popping mints every 3 minutes. The smell is not sour but more like morning breath. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!Gary's Response:
Hi Anna - Thanks for posting. It sounds like you really are a victim of bad breath, but I think you can change that. The way you change it is by getting the anaerobic bacteria in your mouth under control.
I have two suggestions for you. The first one is to get and use a good oxygenating tooth gel and oral rinse. My preference is for Therabreath products because they've worked for me. You can order Therabreath tooth gel and oral rinse here
, or you can pick it up at your local WalMart or at a phamacy chain such as Rite Aid, CVS, or Walgreens. Make sure you also buy a tongue scraper if you purchase the products locally. If you order online through this link
, the tongue scraper is included (plus I get a small commission which helps to keep this site alive).
My second suggestion is that you click here to read my article on preventing bad breath
, making sure that you are following ALL 14 guidelines identified in the article.
I wish you all the best, Anna, and hope that you're able to get this under control quickly. Please post back to let everyone know what you decide to do and how things are going.
