Reader Asks about Conquering Bad Breath…

By david / August 11, 2009

Hello David,

I will be graduating from Dental Assistant school in October 2009. I am really concerned about my breath, I brush after every meal which is at least three times when I am away from home and I brush after each meal when I am at home and I use breath Rx mouthwash. My problem is that I always notice bacteria in/or my tonsils and I can taste it. I am constantly have to place a Q-tip back there in order to remove the bacteria that I know can cause very bad breath. I would like to know should I visit a Ear, Nose and Throat doctor?

Please advise.


Hi M.

Visiting a trained professional is always a good choice. Also, if you don’t like his treatment suggestions, you should always remember that you have the right to seek a second opinion and even a third or more opinions. You will discover that many doctors have different ideas.

This is an excellent and free book on combating bad breath: I suggest you download it and read it immediately. It was written by a dentist who focuses on bad breath.

It will show you what you can do help stop your problems.

Here is the link:

There is another paid resource for bad breath but I suggest you read the free book first and see if that will help you. Free is best!

The other resource is here but it costs a few bucks to purchase:

M., I hope that helps you. Please do one thing for me ok?

Please let me know if this information was helpful to you. If it wasn’t, please ask your question again.

Thank you, M. The feedback helps me a lot.
