I've been having case of bad breath since a long time. I've tried brushing twice a day nd also mouth gargles with Betadine but to no avail. Please help me out.

Hi. Please rinse your mouth properly after eating anything particularly soft foods because there is a deposition of an invisible transparent layer on the tooth surface which is known as plaque and it needs to be cleaned regularly. Brush twice daily. Brushing at night time before going to bed is a must. Visit a dentist for Scaling / Cleaning. Scaling will remove tartar. Do Saline Warm water rinses. Use a mouth wash Ocassionally, don't use regularly as it will cause dry mouth which will cause bad breath.
