Dear friend,

I need some advice. I am male,47 years old, in good physical health, do not smoke, and do not drink. When I was 8 years old I fell and hit my front left upper tooth. It died. When I was 20 years old I had it root canaled. I have changed out the crown several times over the years for cosmetic reasons. I have just recently noticed that a bad smell eminated from the area where the gum meets the tooth. I can smell it if I touch my finger to it. I am not in pain. I went to the dentist 2 weeks ago for a check up which included x-rays and teeth cleaning. He could find nothing wrong with the tooth or the gum. In fact he said that I had the best gums of all of his older patients. I brush three times a day with a slurry of hydrogen perioxide, baking soda, and tea tree oil. What could be the problem and how can I get rid of this bad smell?

Thank you,

Kelly
