Hello lybrate-user, Scaling.
Hello lybrate-user. There are many causes of bad breath. The main include the poor oral hygeine .others are, repeated stomach infection, acidity, dehydration, etc. To get rid of this. 1) maintain good oral hygeine. Use of mouthwashes, brush twice daily with fluoridated toothpaste, and floss your teeth regularly. 2) Never skip your breakfast 3) Make a habit of drinking water not less than 8-10 glasses. 4) eat less of food like onion, garlic Don't worry, hv a nice day.

Dear lybrate-user There is a possibility that you might be having some sort of systemic condition like diabetes, liver related conditions etc. So I would recommend you to see a physician to rule this out. If everything is normal and the condition prevails take a second opinion from a dentist. Thank you.

Hi, There are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently. Regards

Start brushing thrice daily after meals, control the acidity if you have and get scaling done every 6 months.
