A few years ago I started to experience gum pain, tooth aches and bad breath. No matter how much I flossed, brushed and used mouthwash the problems wouldn't end. I visited multiple dentists that praised me on my dental care yet couldn't identify the source of the problem. But then I went a few nights without drinking and the issues stopped. And if I drink again and it comes back. It's nice to have it figured out, but I have a hard time resisting. Some days I visualize that beer I won't have ALL DAY.
