Bad breath can be due- *Infections in gums, teeth or oral mucus of the mouth.
* Sinusitis, nose block and tonsillitis will also cause this problem.
*Dryness of mouth
* If the teeth are crooked, ulcers may be caused and food particles may get stuck causing infection.
*Eating and digestive disorders.
* Taking some medicines for other diseases.
Taking care of your oral hygiene-
•Use proper tooth brush and fluoride based tooth paste. Tongue cleaning is also very important.
•Gargling your mouth after eating any food.
•Avoid tobacco and smelly masala foods.

Drink plenty of water and avoid dryness of mouth. **Homoeopathy has good treatment for your problem, without causing adverse effects. Take homoeopathic medicine Merc sol 30 twice daily in the morning and in the evening and give feedback after 6 days.
Bad breath is due to accumulation of plaque on teeth, decay teeth, dry mouth, smoking, tobacco chewing, consumption of caffeinated or aerated beverages, oilly n spicy food, sore throat, bad digestion. Go for scaling and polishing of teeth. Use mouthwash twice daily after brushing. Maintain proper oral hygiene. Increase your water intake.
No dear there are many reasons or factors cause halitosis like improper cleaning of tongue, cough formation, acidity, pockets, dryness of mouth, some decayed teeth. You just visit to any periodontist and take advise.
first of all I want you to to know that halitosis or bad breath is never genetic and is completely dependent on your oral hygiene. deposition of plaque and calculus around teeth cause gum infection, swollen gums and bleeding gums. this is one reason for bad breath. another reason is deposition of yellowish white layer over tongue. there are various other reasons like gastrointestinal health, fever, use of some medicines, Etc. I advise you to visit a dentist for professional cleaning of your teeth. then follow the instructions given by the dentist very strictly. brush twice a day along with tongue cleaning. rinse your mouth after every meal. drink lots of water.
