Q.

BAD TASTE AND SMELL OF MOUTH

Good day, I am 33 and still have all 4 wisdom teeth. They are in different stages of coming out of my gums. The don't bother me at all, not painfull or anything. The thing is, I have a bad taste in my mouth and sometimes an off breath. Could it be due to the wisdom teeth. I brush only in the mornings and then I brush my tongue too. What can I do, except chewing bubblegum, to alleviate the taste and smell of my mouth.

It is unlikely that the smell is coming from your wisdom teeth. see our oral health section on bad breath
