There is a natural explanation that I have very bad breath, and can the dentist do something to alleviate the bad breath?
I have excellent oral hygiene and also use dental floss regularly.
There can be several causes of bad breath. In the jargon we call it the foetor ex ore or Halitosis. But before you seek out medical care towards the bad breath, you should be aware that I do not mention the general lack of fresh breath, most of us have in the morning. But severe bad breath which can be a daily problem for many of us. This kind of bad breath affects approximately. one in five of us at one time or another in our lives. So it is in no way an uncommon problem.
It is very annoying and can come from the oral cavity, the sinuses, the nose and even from the stomach and intestinal tract. So it would be a good idea to speak with your own dentist to rule out that the smell comes from the teeth and the mucous membrane in the first place. You may want to. get a consultation of a private doctor to an ear, nose and throat doctor. If there is something wrong with the first mentioned things you can be examined by a medications.
Hope you can use my answer.
With kind regards
