what do you recommend for a bad breath problem?

Chlorine dioxide : Most bad breath (~90%) actually come from your oral cavity. You need to thoroughly brush and floss and scrape your tongue lightly. The bad breath smell is usually caused by the release of sulfur compounds. You must also see the dentist at least 2 - 4 times a year. Use closys or any chlorine dioxide product that will kill the gram negative anaerobic bacteria.
