Urgent I have REALLY bad breath?

Post

Im 16, and have very bad breath.
The Dentist said my teeth are fine, i brush and use medicated mouthwash twice a day, i always chew sugarfree gum, i brush my tongue, drink a lot of water and i eat a normal diet.
What is going on? I've enquired to the doctor so many times but they just give me mouthwash to use.
PLEASE HELP!

Floss.

And talk to your doctor about whether you have acid reflux.

are you flossing?  then start.  old food smells bad & can rot your teeth.

are you in the process of cutting your wisdom teeth?  

if you are then the bad smell is coming from the little bits of blood that comes from your teeth erupting through the gums.  there is nothing you can do about it & the smell will go away when your teeth have finished coming in.

in the meantime I recommend you chew gum like dentyne ice or orbit

Floss and brush in DETAIL. I have braces and it's harder to brush. Use mouthwash every time you eat a meal or a snack. Brush your tongue, gums, and most importantly, the roof of your mouth. Some people don't pay attention to this. But it is a very important thing to do. If this does not help, talk to your local Dentist, Orthodontist, or your Doctor. Tell them whats not working. I hope this helps for you! Good luck Greg! ;)
