Bad breath could be primarily a hygiene issue or a systemic issue. You could be brushing and still have bleeding gums. All efforts will be wasted on  add ons If you don't get professional consult for dental care  biannually or as advised. TC

Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you:
- practice good oral hygiene.
- brush twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque..
- Don't forget to clean your tongue also.
- use floss or interdental toothbrush to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day.
- drink lots of water. this will keep your mouth moist and reduce bad breath.
- chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.
- see your dentist regularly- at least twice a year, he/she will conduct oral examination and professional teeth cleaning and will b able to detect n treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor.
