Avoid common causes: Halitosis (bad breath) after certain foods or drinks occurs for several reasons. Chemicals from some foods/drinks diffuse into the flesh in the mouth and throat. These chemicals (odors) keep coming out into the breath for many hours. Some foods or drinks cause odors when in the stomach. Stomach odors will come up through burps, and even without noticeable burps. Some substances stick to the teeth.

Start w your Dentist: Make sure no infections (teeth, gums/bone, throat, tonsils, etc. Clean between teeth DAILY. Brush 2 minutes 2x/day. Ask Dentist to show you how to clean tongue. Evaluate dietary choices. Have Physician evaluate sinuses, tonsils, adenoids, and possibility of GERD.

Halitosis: Bad breath can be caused by many different factors, including sinus infections, periodontal problems, smoking, cavities, acid reflux, and your diet. Address all of these possibilities with your dentist and physician, and I'm confident that your problem will at least be minimized, and hopefully eradicated.
