    There are many things that could cause this, including but not limited to the following: You could have calculus (tartar) under your gums or between your teeth that can only be removed by a dental professional. The cause could also be due to bacteria on your tongue that is not adequately removed. I recommend seeing a dentist for evaluation. READ MORE
