Dental and Oral Health (Adults)
Has been quite sometime since I have been suffering with this. Soon after brushing my teeth and cleaning my tongue, as soon as I begin to talk or eat something, gradually in sometime there is a foul smell that starts on and never ends. Is it because of indigestion of food or are there any other reasons.
It could be due to a digestion (GI - gastrointestinal) problem or more likely be caused by adult gum (periodontal) disease. Prescription gum rinse might help along with various gum treatments. You should see your local dentist and physician.
