Hi all. My breath has seemed to improve somewhat - I used to have different kinds of odors but some of them don't seem to come up as much or as often. However, one thing that stubbornly doesn't go away is a fecal smell that I think comes from between my teeth, as opposed to the tongue or something. I'd floss and then smell it. Some of the spaces between teeth don't smell at all. And the fecal smell usually comes from a few specific spaces of particular teeth. As the day goes on, the odor becomes more severe and my mouth would be permeated by that fecal smell.
Has anyone experienced this??!! I'm at a loss and am frustrated by this.
yes i've noticed this with two of my teeth. i usually dip my floss in grapefruit seed mouthwash in those areas a few times a day to help with the odor there. i also realized that on those two teeth, my gums are receded. are yours? maybe thats the cause? well in a couple of weeks i'm gonna have them pulled. ( for braces ) i was kinda happy when i found out that those two were the ones that had to be pulled. i'm hoping that once their gone the problem will be solved. anyways...floss with gse mouthwash...a few times a day...it'll help some..wish i could be more help..hopefully someone else will be more helpfull. good luck -j
Use a waterpik! It is a miracle for cleaning under the gumline and in between teeth. You'll actually smell that awful smell coming out, but do it 2x a day and it'll fix that kind of odor. Don't forget, it doesn't replace flossing. All pharmacies and walmart, etc sell them.
OH-My-Gosh! My husband has this same smell from his teeth. I have never discribed it this way but that is exactly what it smells like. Unbareble at times. Can't be too mean to him becuase I have my own pit odor issues that for some strange reason finally went away since moving back to the states.
Here is his history incase you have something in common. He had a protective sealant put on his teeth 15 years ago. He has never had a cavity in his life and he is over 40. He had an apendisitis and lympnodes removed. He has a lot of moles. He can smell up the bathroom and his smell, smells old and musty. Like mold in an old basement. Hope this helps.
Im new to curezine and share the same problem.
I have just started "oil pulling" which apparently is great for gingivitis/mouth decease (spell check sorry lol) as well as riding you of toxins and a whole host of other stuff. they have a forum on here.
You swish a tablespoon of oil in your mouth, sucking the oil between all your teeth and round your mouth for 20 mins first thing in the morning (before brushing or eating etc) the oil goes thin and white and you spit into the toilet.
The oil you spit away has loads of live bacteria and crap in it so make sure you do not swallow it. Brush your teeth straight after.
I have been using olive oil because thats all i have at the mo, but you can/should use organic sunflower oil or seseme oil. Someone said they added a drop of oregano oil to their tablesppon too with excellent results, so i might give that a try.
What i have noticed is my teeth have a cleaner feel to them, less gritty than before and i havent been coughing up mucus today! usually i can bring up mucus throughout the day so i would say this is a good start!
keep you posted as to how it progresses, maybe if this continues to get better and i really go all out to change my diet etc i might end up bad breath free!!
wouldnt that be somethin....
symptoms of constipation that are not always as obvious, and may not even seem related to the digestive tract include: headaches, abdominal cramping, bad breath and strong body odor, bloody stools, liquid discharge between bowel movements, stomach aches that seemingly go away after a bowel movement, skin blemishes, and lethargy.
These other symptoms are signs the body is becoming toxic due to waste not being eliminated from the body. Bad bacteria backed up in the bowels can contribute to bad breath or body odor, as the waste literally sits and putrefies in the colon. A thickly coated tongue can be another symptom of constipation. In fact, bacteria sitting in the colon for too long can lead to bad breath that never seems to get better no matter how many times you brush, gargle, or use fresheners.
I found that after cleansing my body, this issue slowly dissipates. check out the link, there is more information there!
i finally got rid of it guys! im so freakin excited to start my life im 30 years old and had this problem since i was 14.nobody knew what it was, not the dentist or doctors they sucked and wre a waste of time.i didnt think it was my wisdom teeth but that was the problem i was cured. my freakin breath smelled worse than crap ot was like sewage and now its been a month and im sure its gone.i cant lie sometimes i get paranoid when im in a confined room because of so many bad experiences you guys know what im talking about.i had asked the dentist if it was my wisdom teeth giving me bad breath and he said he didnt think it was,he was so wrong.just to think if i would of gotten them removed a long time ago.excuse my grammer my writing sucks but im copying and pasting this on all the forums incase it can help someone else.i got all 4 wisdom teeth removed and bad breath is totally gone except for some normal morning breath i can actually go to church now and sit beside people and not panic you guys who have this problem know that little things like that are huge for us. and by the way i thought it was tonsil stones then my sinuses then my stomach i went through a process and nothing helped the nasal irrigator with some gse helped a little and i was starting to think it was post nasal drip but it was my wisdom teeth. im not saying this will work for everyone but it did ot for me and i hope ths post will help someone else because fecal bad breath is a curse so ill keep copying and pasting this message.
Is your breath still fresh? Have you had any reason to think the bad breath came back? If you're still considering yourself cured, I may give this a try. One question first. Did you have any reason to think the odor may be originating around your wisdom teeth in the first place? My wisdom teeth aren't giving me any issues at all, but my dentist thinks I should go ahead and remove them. Did you only have bad breath or did you experience body odor too?
I have GI symptoms that I think are contributing to my FBO and Fecal Bad Breath. But if anything can make my smell less offensive, I will definitely give it a try.
