My hubby has a permanent bridge in the top front of his mouth (hockey as a teen).
Recently (in the past year) he has started to undergo some serious dentalwork, part of which will be pulling and replacing that bridge (there is an abcess under it) and also pulling his bottom two front teeth (the metal back of the bridge wore them away) which also had an abcess below.
Very recently, he has started suffering from Death Breath. Granted, I started a new med to help prevent migraines, and it may be affecting my sense of smell - BUT - it’s terrible.
In the mornings, I can barely stand to be in the same room with him and I have noticed other people leaning away when he is speaking to them, so I am pretty sure it’s not just me.
I feel guilty constantly complaining about it, I know he brushes whenever I ask, and to be honest even right after he brushes I can still smell it a little, but it gets worse throughout the day.
What can he do? I am contemplating getting him a Water Pik for Christmas - not romantic onthe surface, but more so if you consider that it’s very hard to kiss him right now. I also think it would be good for our daughter to use it, for general oral health.
Any other advice? Seriously - HELP! This morning I walked into out bedroom and the WHOLE room smelled bad - just from him yawning and chatting with our cat and dog…
