Dear Lybrate user, bad breath can be due to several reasons- a decayed tooth, gum infection, reduced salivary, unclean tongue (90% of the cases) etc. You should brush twice daily, rinse your mouth after every meal and pay special attention toward keeping your tongue clean. You can also consult your local dentist who can check if you need scaling/professional cleaning to get rid of any gum infection. Your dentist might also recommend you to use a mouthwash for 15 days after scaling which keep your breath fresh. Chewing mint leaves (pudina), fennel (saunf) and sugar free gums like orbit after meals is also highly beneficial.

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.

Hello Lybrate user, there can be numerous reason for foul smell. The most common among is poor oral hygiene. So start with properly brushing twice daily along with a mouthwash. Also visit your nearby dentist for scaling and polishing which is actually a procedure to clean the surface of teeth. Hope this helps.

Once your food is digested, chemicals that cause odour can be absorbed into your bloodstream and from there into your lungs; these chemicals then are exhaled. Diets high in protein and sugar also have been associated with bad breath. Infections in the mouth, such as dental caries (tooth decay), periodontal (gum) disease or mouth sores related to other conditions may contribute to bad breath. Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. Dry mouth also can cause bad breath. Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products also can cause bad breath, You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person.
