Good afternoon! I think part of your original question was cut off. All I see is the words "my mouth". Can you repeat it for me, please?

Sincerely,

Dr. Lara

My mouth has a horrible taste I need two teeth extracted and four cavities filled
Dentist: Lara Coseo, Dentist (DDS or equivalent) replied 8 months ago

Thank you. Sorry for the repetition.

I read your note that you have some teeth to be extracted that are rotting. That can definitely be the cause of a bad taste and a bad smell in your mouth. Once a tooth has a large cavity in it, it's really difficult to keep the food and bacteria out of it, so it becomes a collection place for all sorts of bad-smelling stuff.

Peroxyl is not my favorite mouthwash for bacteria. Peroxide sometimes gives you an even worse taste in your mouth. The best thing for bad taste and/or smell is an alcohol-free antiseptic mouthwash. Listerine and Crest both make an alcohol-free mouthwash.

This should not be a continual problem after those teeth are extracted, though.

Does that answer your question?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
