Is there any reason why I can't breath out of my nose normally? I mean it's not stuffed but I naturally breath out of my mouth... I can only breath out of my nose when I concentrate. Weird? I think part of my bad breath comes from that... and it stinks (bleh). can I fix that?

While I'm not sure about not breathing out of your nose, I can ask this: is it just uncomfortable, or is it just a preference? If it's uncomfortable of causes pain, you will want to get that checked out. If not, it's probably nothing to get worked up about.

As for bad breath, contrary to popular belief, bad breath is usually caused by tiny spores growing on the tongue, not the teeth (unless you ate something smelly ) While brushing your teeth is always a good idea, it won't help much with a case of bad breath. Try a tongue scraper, or even just save one toothbrush for brushing your tongue, and the other for your teeth.
