I brush two to three times daily, and my breath in my mouth still smells. Can you tell me what to do about this? What could be causing this?

Even though you brush often, there are many reasons you are experiencing a bad smell in your mouth.
Bad breath is usually caused by bacteria that are in your mouth. Brushing your teeth is a good first step. Make sure that you also floss your teeth daily. If your bad breath persists, then you may want to get a tongue cleaner.
There are also powerful bad breath fighting products you can by over the counter that will help. Try BreathRx, or you can try one of the special rinses or bad breath toothpaste.
Try searching the Internet on how to fight mouth odor problems too. Many dentist offer advice on how to treat mouth odor problems.
