Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

Bad breath is caused due to poor oral hygiene maintenance ,which often can lead into gingivitis.

I would advice you to visit a dentist and get scaling done.

Use soft bristled toothbrush as well as desensitising toothpaste to clean your teeth.

Brush and floss your teeth as well as tongue daily.

Use chlorhexidine mouthrinses to gargle.

Take care.

Hi,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum

Halitosis ( Bad Breath ) is due to food particles in the mouth left for long time without cleaning, hence cleaning wel is a first remedy but to prevent the decay of the food material in the mouth which is the cause of the bad smell the bacteria causing the decay has to be got rid off. This can be achieved by CHLORHEXIDINE solution.

Gargling and washing the mouth with Chlorhexidine ( antiseptic solution ) will decrease the bacterial count which reduces the decay and the smell , but removing the left in food material would be a first line of management.

RE; Oraltech Labs, It worked for me, although I will say it's not just do this and "bam your breath is cured" they make you change your entire mouth cleaning habits. So you end up doing it all their way. But in the end it becomes a daily habit. It covers Post Nasal Drip and Tonsil Stones as well thankfully. If you have bad breath you'll know it messes up your whole social life. And I suppose the best thing is they don't make you go out buying "special" products for the rest of your life. Just don't get it and then think you'll do what it says “now and then” because it's either all or nothing, and trust me getting rid of my room clearing faecal breath meant I was all in. Alex’s, J.
