Hi johnaniston!

The baby tooth is not a problem, many people have persistent baby teeth.

More importantly you should determine where the bad breath is coming from. This can be due to a number of reasons; leaky fillings, gum infections, retained wisdom teeth or even stomach and digestive tract infections.

I would discuss the situation with your dentist, s/he will be able to determine whether the cause is a dental issue and/or recommend any further treatment and therapy.

All the best!

At 25 years old, I still have a baby tooth,too. It makes me feel self conscious. I am wondering what my options are to get rid of this tooth.

My son is 13 and he is still loosing his baby teeth. My six year old has only lost two teeth and I am concerned because the permanent teeth still have not completely grown in yet.
