I have been flossing, brushing morning, night after meals, using a toungue scraper using a good mouthwash morning and night but still this very bad smell at the back of my toungue. I have been keeping excelltent oral hygiene for about 6 months but im so depressed cos theires no improvement!

Also Im getting this rlly bad smell from my nose too which is bad and prevents me socialising if i get up rlly close and talk to sum1!
Ive only just moved out from home and I feel so alone cos i cant even go out and meet people cos of this.
Doctor and dentist dont know what to do, ive done everything they said but no improvement whatsoever!

Please believe me when I say that this is killing my spirit and joy for life and I feel so down all the time!

Perhaps you have a serious sinus problem that is causing draining into your throat and thus the bad breath-- see a ear nose and throat Doctor. Or try something called Breath RX- most dentists carry it.

Good Luck,
Clarita

My friend has the same problem. She was told that it had something to do with the lining or inside of her stomach. Maybe you should see a doctor or someone and see what they can do.

Hi,

I heard there is something made by a famous L.A. dentist called "Thera Breath". His name is Dr. Katz. Look for him online. It's a whole system that supposedly changes lives. I saw it on the news.

Good luck!

Yep, I use Therabreath because toothpaste sucks.Toothpaste just smells nice for a short period and then it doesn't seem like you brushed at all. Toothpaste doesn't do very well with the bad smells dairy products and sodas and such leave on my breath and the infamous "fuzzy tongue". Therabreath seemed to work fairly well.

From my personal experience, the tablets didn't do anything spectacular, but the toothpaste, chlorine dioxide (or whatever it was) wash along with the tongue scraper do a decent job. It's not a miracle cure for a medical problem, but its MUCH better at getting your mouth clean and not just temporarily smelling better with some stupid flavored paste.

If you are going to get it, get extra mouthwash (not the stuff you make with the tablets). It goes quickly and it is an essential part of the product. Again, the wash, toothpaste/gel + tongue scraper is all you need. The rest of the stuff is fluff.

If you want to reduce the chance of having bad breath (and you know it's bad when your mouth tastes like crap), avoid : Soda,alcohol,dairy products, and drinks with lots of acids.

It helps a lot, and it seems that the stuff that makes yoru breath stink is buried in your tongue and is in the crevices and somewhat hidden areas of your mouth. That chlorine dioxide wash (or whatever it was) is the key ingredient. It is the only thing that actually does something and doesnt just cover up what needs to be cleaned up. It seems like this is the best thing on the market so far.

Hope some of this information was useful. I just thought I would offer personal feedback so that you wont be swayed by the marketing fluff and user product testimony that is posted on the site to make the product look good. We all know that everyone who puts out their product will do what they can to make it look like it can work miracles to sell more. This product was worth the money I paid for it.

You might want to try it out.

Oh, and onion and garlic are bad news too. I'm not saying to become a water sucking amoeba eater, but avoiding that stuff helps. Also, if you want to chew gum, chew sugarless only. The green Extra gum does the job and doesn't help the breath gremlins any and doesn't work a number on your teeth either.

Ok, I'm done blabbing

Thanks for that Icy and Itty kitty believe me I need all the help I can get.

I went to the website and ordered the gel and mouthwash and the nasal drops. I sincerely hope the nasal drops can have some effect on the smell through my nose.
I will try these products out and let you know how I get on, if these products work then it will radically change my life and actually make me happy which is sumthin that I just havent been able to be cos of this problem!

Fingers crossed!!!!!!!

Mattiscool, by all means these products sound great.

However I think you should also make your way to a "fresh breath clinic" dentist. They are dentists that specialise in getting rid of the problems that cause bad breath. They have a special machine that you blow into which measures how many sulfur compounds you have in your breath. They make certain recommendations to you for looking after your mouth then when you've used them for a while you go back in and have your breath tested again. I saw it on TV and wouldn't mind checking it out myself.

I think any food or drink that leaves a bitter, "tangy" type of taste in your mouth will likely translate to your breath. I totally agree with soft drinks (sodas) and all dairy products. I find that biscuits (cookies) make my mouth taste awful afterwards and other similar types of junk food. Coffee and tea as well.

Also, did you see my post to your earlier discussion "bad nose breath"? Here's what I said:

Have you ever heard of things called "tonsolliths", what happens to some people is that food particles get caught in the folds of your tonsils and collect there and calcify. Sometimes you can see them, they are little light-coloured formations on your tonsils. I have one on my tonsils right now. And occasionally I will be brushing my teeth or something and one will fall into my mouth from nowhere. Sorry for the graphic detail everybody but you might have these Matt. I hear you can even get them on the back of your tongue. When I swallow then breathe out through my nose I get this awful taste/smell, and that's what it is I think. Perhaps see your dentist or doctor about it.

This might be what you have lurking inside your mouth as well.

well i dont ever have a bad taste in my mouth even though my breathe is very bad. The bad smell mainly comes from through my nose that is really the big problem area.
Ive been using the Thera breath toothgel, mouthwash and nasal drops for about 2 days now and my mouth definitly feels cleaner, but im still gettin a small bad smell through my nose. Im going to keep up with all these products and see if theirs any improvements through the nose smell.
Does anyone know if I keep using these products could their be improvements?

Unfortunatly theirs none of these breath clinics in England I would have loved to have seen someone from their, instead i got an appointment with a throat nose ear doctor in about a month or 2 so Ill see wot happens then.

Ill keep everyone updated.
