Post the floss test

I had heard that the test of whether a person has bad breath or not is to floss the teeth and then smell the floss. I have never had anyone complain about my breath, but I did the test anyway and every single tooth came out okay except one. On one side of one tooth, my floss consistently comes out with a putrid smell. I have good dental hygiene habits; I eat right, and the tooth feels and looks completely normal as well as the gum around it. So why am I getting this smell and how can I get rid of it? By the way, it is an upper molar tooth and a wisdom tooth is coming in next to it. Fortunately this one tooth has not effected my breath, but I know something is not right for this smell to be there and I certainly don't want it to spread!

Hi,
I've never heard of that one! The way I heard to test if you have bad breath is to lick the back of your hand and let it dry, then smell. That is supposedly what other people smell. Hope this helps!
