Halitosis

User Level:

Posted by: musicilike  (8 years ago)
Hello!

Over the past year, I have developed chronic halitosis. I take great care of my oral hygiene. I brush my teeth, floss, use mouthwash and scrape my tongue. I also eat healthy foods but nothing works. The smell is almost constant even right after I brush my teeth. I use mints most of the time. Please give me some suggestions on what else I can do. I am very self conscious about it. Many thanks!

Hi!

Halitosis is commonly caused by bad teeth and gum conditions. You should visit your dentist about this. You should do a very thorough job of brushing, flossing and mouthwash rinsing. Other causes of halitosis are conditions of the nose, throat or stomach.

Every time you brush your teeth, brush your tongue too. Bad breath can be caused by a gum disease and bacteria in the tongue. Use an antiseptic mouthwash.
