Hello, I am terribly suffering from severe bad breath. When I wake up in morning, my mouth stinks so much that I myself can feel the bad breath. After brushing, immediately within an hour my mouth starts stinking. I brush twice a day, in morning and before going to bed along with applying manjan at evening. I do scaling twice a year and dentist confirmed that oral hygiene is good. I have a runny nose while having my meals, my tongue gets white throughout the day despite of cleaning it daily in morning and while brushing my teeth in morning also I feel that bad breath is coming from my throat. I am not a doctor but I doubt it's a nasal issue or may be tonsil stones issue. By reading the above information, can some doctor please advise, which type of specialist I should see I'm Pune. I mean ENT, gastroenterologist etc? I really wish to eliminate this bad breath issue permanently so please please advise genuinely. Thanks in advance.

Get a deep scaling and cleaning done from a dentist, then start brushing thrice daily after meals, see an ENT doctor too.

A specialist dentist can help you regarding your bad breath problem. Considering you are free from any tobacco related habit, follow these steps 1) brushing in the night before going to bed. Drink as much water as you can all day long and must before sleeping in the night. 2) use Listerine mouth wash twice daily. Rinse with it for 30 seconds and do not drink or eat anything for at least one hour. You can repete it in the morning after brushing. 3) buy non sugar based chewing gums, or you can use oral mint spray to keep fresh breath long. Your nasal problem will be overshadowed. *You are not supposed to miss this routine for at least one week. You can thank us later. THANK YOU.
