I don't know what to do. Help pls.

Recommended Posts

Hello I'm a new member here, I am desperately seeking for an answer for my problem which is "bad breath". Everyday I brush, gargle mouthwash, floss and even use a tongue scraper but the problem still persists. I've been to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned. This problem of mine is affecting my self esteem and my social interactions with people.


The girl i like in school is turned-off by me because of this. Most importantly, we're both on the same group in our class and i dont know how to face her.


I hope somebody can help me.

Well.. my father's a dentist, so he told me a little bit about bad breaths... I dont' know all though, so you should probably complain to a dentist and see if they can do anything about it.


Bad breath, according to what I know, can be caused by a dirty tongue, diseased gum, cavity, and not using the restroom everyday.


I think you can fix it by ... using the restroom everyday... somehow... eat more vegetables, floss and brush after every meal. (idealy you're supposed to brush 4 times a day, for 10 min each. After breakfast, lunch, dinner, before you sleep). Mouth wash, in my dad's opinion, does absolutely nothing for you except make you feel better. You should brush your tongue at least once a week. (just using the toothbrush with toothpaste is enough.)


Maybe you should check to see if you're brushing your teeth correctly or using floss correctly. When you're brushing your teeth, you're not focusing on the flat part, you're really trying to brush the part between your gum and your teeth, and between your teeth... for better instructions, see your dentist. =(

I dont know but it could be caused by tonsilloliths(sp). They are particles of food that get stuck in your tonsils, and bacteria makes it rot, and man, do they smell like death. I read about them in SciAm, and they are one of the top causes of bad breath. If you have them, it feels like you have someting stuck in the back of your throat, and you can see a small white dot on your tonsil. If cough like Im hocking up a loogie for long enough, they usually come out, and they put out what is literally one of the worst smells Ive ever smelled. Sorry I was so graphic, but if u want you can look online for more info on them.
