? plaque on back of bottom teeth

Hi Dr, I have speed braces since June this year, and about one month ago I feel and see like hard yellow stuff on my small bottom teeth at the back only four of them in the front have it on. I floss 2 daily and use Corsodyl 2 daily and my taste has changed completely and I have halitosis which is really embarrassing as I have never had any of the above. Please let me know what to do as it looks horrible, even if it is on the small back teeth.

Regards
Mem

it sounds as though you may have a build up of tartar (calculus). This is easily removed by performing a proffessional cleaning at your dentist
