When I was a kid we used to chew tablets that would stain our teeth if we didn't brush them properly. So you'd have basically a blue or purple mouth and then you'd brush until you didn't have any color left. It really helped encourage us too brush proper.
Turns out they are still around!

Looks like the formula was changed. looking at amazon reviews now.
give this a try it works really well for me
Most docs will say there is an infection. I had mine out because of stones, but like others said, insurance varies. My breath was awful too. Few tips:
1) get a waterpik. I hate it and don’t use it anymore, but it was 100% the best way to clear stones daily.
2).TheraBreath is the best mouthwash to cover the smell. You can buy it at most stores, but this is an Amazon listing: amazon.com/dp/B00IRKRK9O/
You won’t rid yourself of stones without having them removed. Go see an ENT. I didn’t think the pain was bad during recovery either. I also had two really bad bleeds, one filling up my sink with blood (they actually cauterized me without numbing spray because he ran out too). After about two-three days it’s a bad sore throat. After you recover you’ll love life since you’re no long spitting out those stinky ass stones.
Aye, don't be doing that, you might have pulled the clot out and be on the way to dry socket hell!! If you have a clot or not, leave it alone and as was already mentioned, go to your dentist and have them take a look-see. I'm 3 weeks out and I've still got stitches in several of the deep holes, and I pulled out the stitches in several deep ones trying to get what I realized wasn't a bone fragment but rather the inside walls of where the teeth were. Terribly infected when they were pulled and that stuff is still there. But it's not hurting.
I can't use the stuff they gave me, the Peridex but I traded it with my wife for this and it's AMAZING for healing and use salt water EVERY time you rinse except with this stuff.
This stuff. Or just some diluted hydrogen peroxide put on a qtip and rubbed on it a few times a day if you don't want to spring for the fancy stuff.
Ora-Plus. It doesn't taste like anything, so if you want it flavored, you can also buy Ora-Sweet and add that.
NAD, but I get these a lot too - they're just canker sores. Not serious other than being seriously annoying lolol
They can be triggered by stress, acidic foods, and a number of things (vitamin deficiency being among them).
I personally use this and this when I get them and they help a lot. Good luck!
Probably a epinephrine/adrenaline response.

I've never had super bad breath, but breath that gradually starts to smell unpleasant by the end of the day. Like most people.
This put an end to that and it'll last all day. Gargle it in the way back of your throat, since most of the "bad breath" germs live back there, not just in your teeth.
It helped along with the other medicine because it’s killing all the bacteria and it helped with the inflammation of the throat. Today is day 7 and I do not have a sore throat! Only had it until Friday (day 4). I use Vick’s nasal spray to help with my congestion because that clears me up the longest!
https://www.healthline.com/health/gargling-hydrogen-peroxide here’s the information about a regular peroxide solution. Important to dilute with water do not just straight up gargle with it!!
Here’s an actual mouthwash: https://www.amazon.com/Colgate-Peroxyl-Mouth-Sore-Rinse/dp/B00WOSEKP2/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?crid=2EZ94H10H5BN8&keywords=hydrogen+peroxide+mouthwash&qid=1657544316&rdc=1&sprefix=hydrogen+peroxide+mo%2Caps%2C83&sr=8-3
i recommend this!

You’ve never seen them? They’re purple tablets that show where you missed brushing the plaque from your teeth. Example:
Plaque Disclosing Tablets for Teeth, 96 Count, Dental Disclosing Tablets for Kids or Adults, Shows Plaque, Helps Teach Kids Teeth Brushing Habits for Clean Teeth, by Fresh Knight, Pack of (1) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07X8R9PQN/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_navT_a_E5J6EJGZZM6X29Y3TR92
this mouthwash that uses hydrogen peroxide instead of alcohol doesn't burn!
also what about one of these ultrasonic brushes? I've never tried one but they seem quite different from a normal brush in the way that they clean. They also only take 30 seconds so even if you don't love it maybe it will be more tolerable overall?
Yikes yikes yikes!! No!! Okay. Dental assistant here:
Never drink anything but PLAIN water with your trays in. No carbonated water, no coffee (temperature doesn't matter), no tea (amoungst other drinks).
The reason this guideline exists is because ALL coffee is naturally acidic, so is tea, and especially cabonated drinks (all of them, including sparkling water). Any added sugar to it doesn't help.
If your mouth pH is acidic vs. Alkaline, I also reccomend a pH balancing mouth rinse one or two times a day to prevent cavities (I myself have a very acidic mouth and have to use a special mouth rinse twice a day.)
Maybe add that into your invisalign routine, especially after brushing your teeth morning and night to keep those cavities at bay 🥰 and if you enjoy those acidic foods and want some additional protection from acid!

They also have tooth paste too ❤
This is the kind of wash our ortho gives out when starting treatment. They have citrus flavor as well. I like it!
If it were me in this situation, I would use tonsil stone mouthwash just in case. TheraBreath Fresh Breath Dentist Formulated 24-Hour Oral Rinse, Icy Mint, 16 Ounce (Pack of 2) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IRKRK9O/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_JJ5CA9Z5MA62RAAHKH45?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
And i would call the ENT doctor to tell him that the antibiotics didnt work. If his second intervention doesnt help, I would get a second opinion from another ENT doctor.
Does your breath smell bad to other people? How do you know you dont have tonsil stones? Maybe you could search on YouTube(its gross warning in advance) people removing their tonsil stones and replicate that just in case?
Yes, mouthwash “brushing” works pretty well to get that “cat shit” taste out of your mouth every now and again 🤣 (if you’ve seen ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, you’ll get the reference). There’s one caveat I could not emphasize more: make sure your mouthwash is alcohol-free, or else it’s too drying in the long run.
I’ve found TheraBreath spendy but pretty amazeballs. Like to keep a travel size bottle of it in my purse, even during the masked pandemic times.
Also other tips:
* She can switch between heat and ice for the swelling and just leave it on her jaw (if she has any which she may with the pain)
* Get an antiseptic mouthwash for her to help prevent infection and help it heal. I used this one: https://www.amazon.com/Colgate-Peroxyl-Mouth-Sore-Rinse/dp/B00WOSEKP2 but there's other brands that work as well
I hope she gets better soon!
I can tell you’re really bothered by it, but I can almost guarantee you’re the only person who notices! Something that may help you is a mouth wash by Colgate called Peroxyl. You can get it on Amazon for less than $10. That’s what I recommend to my patients with recurrent tonsil stones, and I’ve heard good things :) I’ve been using it since the first stone I had and have had none since. I really hope you get it figured out- and I feel you LOL I do not tolerate pain well, so I’d sooner extract tonsil stones daily than I would get a tonsillectomy 😂
Here’s the link for Peroxyl

Try gargling Therabreath (https://www.amazon.com/TheraBreath-Fresh-Breath-Rinse-Bottle/dp/B00IRKRK9O) ... You can kind-of cough the stones out without risking the infection/gagging of squeezing with a qtip. Works surprisingly well.
>I have such trouble using regular floss it gets stuck in my teeth and secondly it is a struggle to access every tooth and i worry im doing more harm than good for my gums as sometimes my gum bleeds.
Just so you know, your gums WILL stop bleeding once you get more regular cleanings and get the tartar buildup handled. The tartar inflames your gums and causes bleeding. Once you have the cleaning and floss regularly, your gums won't bleed. You have to use regular floss though, not those little green pics with half an inch of floss on them.
My gums used to gush blood in the mornings and with floss and after two weeks they don't bleed at all even if I take the floss all the way up to the root of my tooth like the dentist does (which you are supposed to do at home as well). Keep at it!
I'm not a dentist but I'm 28 years old and have apparently pretty bad bone loss and gum recession for my age. It accelerated extremely fast after only a year of not going to the dentist.
I also use this daily: https://www.amazon.com/TheraBreath-Healthy-Periodontist-Formulated-Rinse/dp/B0758F8KDC/ref=sr_1_9?dchild=1&keywords=therabreath+mouthwash&qid=1610675565&sr=8-9 in addition to Parodontax toothpaste.
It sucks that I can't go back in time and realize what I was letting happen! I like you am pretty worried about what the future holds, but I can rest assured that I have likely stopped the disease from taking further bone and gum tissue. Best of luck.
Right after I wake up and at some point before bed.
Highly recommend Therabreath for morning breath. I used to have the worst morning breath -- even with meticulous brushing, flossing/water pick, and mouthwash. This was a game changer for me.
Sounds like you might have a canker sore. They are pretty common even if you have good hygiene. They look like little white craters in your mouth. They can make your mouth incredibly sore. They are mostly seen in patients that have had braces or recent tooth work done. Canker sores really like acidic things such as juices or fruits, but you should avoid them because they make the sore worse. People gargle warm salt water but it stings and it’s probably not the best idea if you just had dental surgery. They are common in other settings as well. If you think it is a canker sore after reading this there are quite a few over the counter pastes and mouth rinses to help. I would recommend the Colgate peroxyl mouthwash to help kill the bad bacteria and the canker-X by GUM. I will leave links to both on Amazon. They can be found at most Walgreens or cvs. The gel will go on the sore.

You're welcome! It's been a life saver for me. It's on Amazon too. https://www.amazon.com/Colgate-Peroxyl-Mouth-Sore-Rinse/dp/B00WOSEKP2/ref=sr_1_3?crid=1AGKYBK7MSPHU&keywords=colgate%2Bperoxyl%2Bmouth%2Bsore%2Brinse&qid=1556721816&s=gateway&sprefix=colgate%2Bperoxyl%2Caps%2C195&sr=8-3&th=1#customerReviews
Hey friend, an update.
The next day it felt better, no stinging pain, was able to floss without bad sensations.
Continued using the mouth wash you recommended and have also been doing salt water rinses.
I also used a hydrogen peroxide rinse (this stuff: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00WOSEKP2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
that I had lying around, cause hey why not, and I think maybe it made it worse but I'm not sure, as it's tender again. was getting pains earlier today.
but, I've been very diligent! 3 brushings a day, 2 minutes, soft toothbrush, 1-2 flossings a day. And I've been gentle too, no sawing motions, not forcing it down.
My appointment to get my permanent crown is on the 26th. My initial appointment to get it done was on the 13th which is when the dentist remarked that my gums were quite inflamed.
If it's still tender by the 26th, what sort of questions should I ask my dentist?
Here, I got something for you.
What worked for me is gargling warm salt water several times throughout the day, sometimes I even put salt directly on the sore. I also used Colgate Mouth Sore Rinse https://www.amazon.com/Colgate-Peroxyl-Mouth-Sore-Rinse/dp/B00WOSEKP2# and brushed my mouth regularly right after meals.
Biotene mouthwash works well, #1 focus should be hydration though.

Yes, unless he has changed his pricing model you should still be able to get a PSM for $125. The caveat being that he usually has a relatively lengthy waitlist. If you want to get one as affordable and fast as possible you could always grab one of the SJK dental IH on eBay or amazon. They aren’t portable and they are roughly the size of an electric pencil sharpener, but they definitely get the job done. Last time I looked they go for somewhere between 50-60 dollars (whatever that is in Canadian money).
And with one of these DDave adapters it’s even better.
My rheumatologist has been hesitant to put me on meds because my dry mouth isn't too bad yet. But she does have me using Biotene before bed every night and once I wake up every morning. I've also added a humidifier to my room and moved my normal bedroom fan a little further way so that the air is still moving near me, but its not blowing in my face.
Your case seems a lot more advanced than mine, so definitely talk to your rheumatologist.
So gross. I just posted this link elsewhere and it’s the last I’ll post about it, but this TheraBreath will get rid of them for you. I developed them from vaping. Gnarly, but that stuff cured me.
TheraBreath Dentist Formulated Fresh Breath Oral Rinse - Mild Mint Flavor, 16 Ounce (Pack of 2) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001ET76AI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_ZrGTzbN9W8P06
This mouthwash has yielded me two morning after the threesome threeesomes.
No. I keep a bottle of Therabreath IcyMint in my bag and swish before every class. I also train in the mornings and don't want everyone to deal with my stank coffee breath daily.
$15 for 32oz. Works 10x better than listerine and doesn't burn. Use it for a week before you make any judgements, it seems to take around that amount of time for the results to set in.
An easy option is ethanol or bacteriostatic water if you know it will dissolve in one of them
Alternatively you can buy a pharmaceutical suspending agent like Ora-Plus
Edit for this:
> i am thinking the larger the volume, the better....because i do not know how much to 'subtract' from the solvent before i add the 1 gm of substance.
You don't, you put the substance in a container with volume marks on the side first, and then add the solvent until it reaches the correct volume. For example if you wanted to make a 50mg/ml solution out of 1000mg of powder, you would add it to the container dry, and add solvent until it is exactly 20ml full, because (1000 / 50) = 20
I am using pure xylitol powder, you cant get a higher concentration than that :p
Half a teaspoon will dissolve in saliva within seconds. It is also much cheaper than a mouthwash and it works very well for me.
This one contains 25 % Xylitol: http://www.amazon.com/CariFree-Rinse-Dentist-Recommended-Anti-Cavity/dp/B00QJ804H6
it is a bit pricey though.
Therabreath is awesome. Twice a day is recommended but I usually just use it in the morning. Sonicare toothbrush is awesome too. They have therabreath toothpaste too but I need the sensitive stuff.
Do you bite your nails? Cut that out too.
