Thanks for writing to us.

Bad breath may be caused due to-poor oral hygiene maintenance,GERD causing constipation.

I would advice you to get a thorough scaling done.

Maintain oral care.

Use soft bristled toothbrush as well as tongue scrapers.

Take balanced diet.

Include plenty of fibrous as well as leafy vegetables and fruits into your diet.

Hope this helps.

Hi Seema
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Halitosis can be caused by various different reasons like bad oral hygiene , dental caries , gum disease , stomach problem s , esophageal anomalies , liver dysfunction etc.,As you say you have constipation , there could be an associated halitosis too.Please drink lots of water and take laxatives to avoid constipation.

You can reduce halitosis by maintaining oral hygeine.Cleaning tongue properly , eating a healthy breakfast and many dentists advise brushing teeth after your breakfast also keeps you fresh all the can try a chewing gum.

Take care.
