Asked for male, 23 years old from Durgapur
Dear Lybrateuser, - For bad smell from mouth it is important to maintain proper oral hygiene - get check up done by dentist & get the cavities filled up by the dentist, also if there is any gap in between teeth where food gets stuck & plaque has formed
- also to regularly maintain oral hygiene brush teeth twice a day, do flossing & tongue cleaning (especially back of the tongue) 1-2 times a day, do Listerine solution gargles (as per instruction on label) once a day
- avoid fried, spicy, fat containing foods, avoid smoking if you do
- have plenty of oral fluids including 7-8 glasses of water for proper hydration as dryness of mouth is also a very important factor for foul smell, you can also chew non sugary gum to keep mouth cavity moist
- sometimes improper digestion & gastrointestinal issues are also responsible for the condition.
