Dear Lybrate user, visit your dentist to know the exact cause of bad breath. It could be due to a decaying tooth, an unclean tongue, plaque build up leading to gum disease or some underlying medical condition causing reduced salivary flow. The doctor will advise you the exact remedy accordingly. Pay special attention towards maintaining good oral hygiene, keep your tongue clean, brush twice daily, drink plenty of water. You can chew sugarfree refreshing gums after meals like orbit or consume natural breath fresheners like mint (pudina) or fennel (saunf). They help in increasing salivary flow also. Get a professional cleaning/scaling done.
