Hi.. Regular and twice brushing the teeth and flossing technique will make you feel better.. Check with your dentist for presence of infection.. Or you could also be having a gastritis which is causing the bad breadth.. Hence see a doctor to check if any such problem is the cause for your bad breadth...

Hi, please go for a complete dental check up and get thorough scaling done. If the problem does not subside you must go for a complete medical check up.Causes of bad breath other than dental causes are throat infections, gastric causes and lung problems. Use of a good mouth wash like Chlorhexidine 2-3 times a day should give you relief. Take care!
