Bad breath is due to accumulation of food in places where brush can not reach. Just go for a professional cleaning and after that to maintain oral hygiene bush your teeth twice a day and use mouthwash every night before you sleep.
Get scaling polishing done by a dentist than brush twice daily especially at night use betadine mouth wash drink plenty of water.
Dear lybrate-user ji you are suffering from gum disease and the best thing is that it is very much treatable now with technologies like lasers incorporated with professional cleaning of teeth. They give faster and better results in foghting with such conditions.
Dear lybrate user, bad breath can be due to a decayed teeth in the oral cavity, some gum problem, an unclean tongue (90% of the cases) or reduced salivary flow(dry mouth). Get a dental checkup done. Pay special attention towards keeping your tongue clean. Brush twice daily, rinse your mouth after every meal. You may get a scaling/professional cleaning done once. You can chew sugar free chewing gums like orbit after meals. Fennel seeds(saunf), mint(pudina) are natural breath fresheners which also help in increasing salivary flow. Drink plenty of water and use a mouthwash for 15 days after you get your scaling done.
Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.
