Brief Answer:
CHLORHEXIDINE

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Do gargle with antiseptic solution like CHLORHEXIDINE twice daily after food for a week. This will reduce the bad breath for sure.

For sensitive teeth you may have to consult your dentist to rule out any cavities or masked caries. Sensitive teeth is a sign for caries. Chlorhexidine does help by reducing the infective agents but it is good for you to consult your dentist once.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
