See your dentist: There are many reasons for bad breath, both dental and medical in origin. See the following website for more information. Then see your dentist for an evaluation as to the cause, and who can refer you to your physician if there is any contributing medical issues. http://smilesapartcosmeticdentist.com/fresh-breath-control.htm.

Cavity or tongue: Have you tried brushing your tongue? Some tongues have exaggerated ridges and furrows which harbor odor forming bacteria. Or you might have a cavity or leaking filling or other dental restoration. These can generate quite an odor! let your dentist check these out.

See dentist : Start by seeing your dentist and having your teeth cleaned. You may have decay organ disease that is causing your breath problem. If seeing your dentist doe not help then look at the medical causes. These include, allergies, post nasal drip, acid reflux, diabetes, and others that your md can diagnose and treat.

See your dentist: In the majority of cases, the cause of bad breath, or halitosis, is the product of bacteria in the mouth. The proper diagnosis is the key to a successful treatment. See your dentist for Halimeter test, diagnosis and bad breath treatment that depends on its cause. Good luck.
