    I diagnosed myself and found 3 sources of bad breath...tongue, in between teeth & border of teeth and gums, tonsil stones. If you missed checking these areas, please take a look. I can say, above three areas have three different types of bad breath. Post nasal drip is what causing my tongue to be smelly as the mucus sits back on tongue and bacteria feeds on it and hence the smell comes. Same post nasal drip and saliva gets into the crevices of tonsils and sourcing the formation of tonsil stones. Food gets stuck quite often in between teeth and hence it start smelly. Don't know how to control PND. For tonsil stones, as I started avoiding milk and dairy products, the formation of stones has been decreased but not fully. I floss once and brush twice a day. Also using a mouthwash to diminish bad breath. Trying my best of ways to combat these things. If you have any knowledge of these, please do share your views.

      I have heard if you smell your floss right after you floss each tooth you can target where the smell is.  If theres a smell on the floss its tooth related/gum related the BB if its isnt then its the other theories.  That how I was able to narrow it down. Its my back teeth. Still dont understand why if the smell is in the mouth it still comes out through the nose.

      Oh wow well thats good that its not an issue at work im embarrassed to even mention it.  ok so lets compare symptoms maybe we can figure something else.  I have a weird taste coming from my front teeth receding gums the obvious BB when I floss I smell the order of poo. The odor comes out of my nose when I breath etc.  I also have a fatty liver which that could be the cause too. I have the mucus thing going. I was told I had an enlarged tonsil also.

    hi hector, i believe you can still get those stones because they are in the folds of the skins back there. and even though they are called stones, they are actually food and bacteria, etc hence, the bad smell.  could the smell be coming from a tooth perhaps? My daughter is 38 and still gets those and her tonsils were out when she was little. you can also get food stuck in a pocket besides a tooth so make sure you floss. well, good luck hector.

      -Using a Netipot to flush away the sinuses

      -Using coconut oil/Sesame oil to rinse the mouth for 15-20 mins

      -Using prescriptions like omeprezole metrondonzale. 

      -Diet changes 

      -Taking Probiotics

      -Apple cidar vinegar

      -Using alcohol free mouthwash
