Hi Bad breath or halitosis can be due to number of reasons . Just brushing twice and using mouth wash may not be enough at times . You should get a professional cleaning done once in six to eight months . Do regular flossing and rinsing with plain water after meals . Even acidity at times can cause bad breath You should see a dentist in person and discuss the problem Regards

Hi, There are various reasons for bad breath, if it is because of tartar deposits on teeth the a professional cleaning with dentist will help you to get rid of it. Ideally cleaning should be done six monthly to yearly.But if bad breath is due to other problems such as drinking less water ,repeated cold & cough, stomach upset problems then it has to be rectified with physician consultation.

Hello, bad smell from mouth could be because of deposits or food lodgement between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily, floss regularly. You can avoid it by rinsing after every 1-2 hours.

Looks like a pyorrhea problem. Get a cleaning done from your dentist. If there are other reasons for the bad breath a thorough case history and examination of the mouth would solve this problem.
