1. Why Do I Have Bad Breath?
Most bad breath comes from the tongue, which the sulfur producing bacteria that cause bad breath find to be a very hospitable environment. Unfortunately, merely brushing and flossing is not enough to cure bad breath. In fact, many commerical toothpastes actually help contribute to conditions that make your mouth even more hospitable to bacteria, such as toothpastes with "foaming action" that end up drying your mouth out.
2. How Can I Tell If I Have Bad Breath?
Most people learn that they suffer from bad breath either through judging peoples reactions to them speaking up close, or by someone telling them that they have bad breath (although unless you are young, I find that this is rare).
Others can almost "taste" their bad breath, sensing that their mouth just isn't as fresh as it ought to be. Bad breath certainly has a very distinctive feel, and your own intuition may very well tell you when something is off.

3. Is Brushing and Flossing Enough to Keep Bad Breath Away?
For those who have "normal" breath, good brushing, flossing, and personal hygiene is often enough to keep their breath acceptable.
Unfortunately, for those who suffer from chronic bad breath, brushing and flossing often isn't enough at all. Personal responsibility definitely helps, and it is always preferable to maintain good oral hygiene; however, if you suffer from constant bad breath, if you're anything like me then it has nothing to do with your hygiene at all.
4. Are you a Dentist or Professional? What's Your Story?
No, I'm just a regular guy with no formal training in these matters at all. However, I do suffer from chronic bad breath, and over the years I've done my research, found out what works for me and what doesn't, and have come a long way towards living a "normal" life.
I love to write, and I'm great with computers. So what do you get when you mix a writer with a computer geek and add in some bad breath knowledge was picked up along the way?
The result is this website. I hope you find it helpful!
