    Why will the teeth keep smelling even after thorough brushing?

    Even after brushing thoroughly, the teeth keep smelling, giving out bad odour. the tongue was almost torn apart due to hard scrubbing with the toothbrush. what do you think might be the problem of such a person?

    Bad breath can be a sign of an hidden health problem. I would suggest brushing your tongue but you said you have already tried this. I would consult with my dentist and go from there.

    I agree with JThomp42, it can be an underlying problem. Among the most common are a sinus infection, acidosis, (which is where the body is too acidic), a kidney infection, as well as periodontal disease. Among the few things that may help, are a mouth rinse for dry mouth, a natural mouth rinse containing anti bacterial herbs such as Estrella mouth rinse, contains numerous natural ingredients proven to fight plaque, and periodontal disease. Aloe, and golden seal among the other ingredients, are powerful natural anti biotics, DO not swallow. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002SW … R44GWOADZZ
    You can also use peroxide, as a natural anti infective for the mouth, again DO NOT swallow.
    As far as a sinus infection, or other possible problems, I recommend seeing a doctor.
    For other recommendations read my article about oral health. http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/Essen … and-plaque
    Hope it helps.

      Use a Neti Pot to drain and cleanse your sinuses.  You could also have a tooth infection you are not aware of.

      Basically a neti pot irrigates the sinuses, and clears the infection, with a saline solution. The same can be accomplished by placing a pinch of table salt, and warm water in the cup of yr hand. Sniff into each nostril, and blow. If green, infection

    Mouth odor is usually not the teeth, especially after brushing. The most important thing you can do for your mouth, for your teeth, and to prevent that odor is   FLOSS-FLOSS-FLOSS. Gums hold your teeth in. Sick gums, suck mouth= bad odor. Ok I went to a health convention once, this is how they explained it. You eat numbers times a day. You brush, that removes all the food from your teeth. When you eat everyone ends up with food between their teeth. Your mouth is warm inside. warm abreeds bateria. This is the part that caused great response in the crowd: so what do you think food does when it is left between the teeth in that warm invirement? Ok; then  the next comment was to provoke thought.What happens to food on a plate you leave sitting out on your counter for days if yoour house was 98 degrees? Yep it spoils and spoiled food smells bad! Gum health is terribly important. So many people I talk to think brushing is enough. Do some studying about this you will see it's importance.

    Bad breath can be because of your internal health problems, or because of what you ate, or because of some sort of gums disease.
    Most likely I'd say it's the gum disease, the teeth are probably rotting inside.
    See a dentist and ask for the x-ray scan, and most likely for the deep cleaning of your teeth under gums.
    I had this issue, and after deep cleaning, it was like WOW!!!
