Thanks for writing in.

Usually bad breath is associated with-

1.Poor oral hygiene maintenance resulting in plaque and food debris accumulation.

2.Improper brushing methods.

3.patients under certain medications like,anti-epileptic,antidiabetic drugs causing gingivitis.

4.Poor immunologic factors causing gum infections.

5.Respiratory disorders.

I would suggest you to-

Visit a dentist and get a thorough check -up done.

Get professional scaling and root planning done by your dentist.

Get decayed tooth restored if any.

Always use soft-interdental toothbrush and dental floss to clean your teeth.

Brush your teeth in back-forth and up-down motion.

Replace your toothbrush in every 4-5 months.

Use colgate plax mouthwash after brushing your teeth.

Clean your mouth after every meal to prevent plaque accumulation.

Get routine dental check-up in every 6 months.

Get your blood sugar levels checked to rule out the chance of diabetes.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask any other concerns.
