Q.

BAD BREATH

Good Day,

This past weekend i had two of my upper teeth removed. Both hs holes in the and were starting to rot. After the extraction the dentist advised that i keep the cotton wool in place and not rinse my mouth for at least twenty four hours.

I did exactly as he said and rinsed with salt water after brushing my teeth on Sunday. My problem is that my breath doesnt smell fresh anymore and i have a funny taste in my mouth?

Any ides?

This is common after an extraction. If accompanied by pain, you could have an infection. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene.
