Good oral hygiene with mouth wash and brushing will be a must.  You can start using Tab.  bifilac lozenges  once a day. .should be dissolved in mouth and then swallow. .to be continued for a month.  This alters the mouth bacterial environment ( oral microflora) and keeps it healthy.  See to it that you do not do mouth breathing at night.  Even that leads to bad breath.  Take a side turn and sleep to prevent mouth opening.  These days removable devices are there to prevent mouth breathing ( snoring). Hope this helps.  Kindly follow

Hello, It is true that the accumulation of food is more as you are wearing braces resulting in bad breath sometimes.You can rinse your mouth with lukewarm water and a pinch of salt 3-4 times daily,use a good mouthwash like Freshclor,clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner and brush your teeth with a bood ortho brush.Regards,Dr Suman Makam,Dental Arts,Bangalore,Jayanagar

It is usually due to the good accumulation in braces area.. use orthodontic tooth brushes for brushing. Brush 2times a day and use mouth wash regularly. Rinse mouth after every meal drink plenty of water and check for gastric problems.. certain medical problems also give bad odout
