About bad breath?

Brush tongue & floss

Cdv_photo_003
While acid reflux can be an issue, it is no longer considered a primary cause of bad breath. The major causes of non-food related breath odors (garlic etc.) are gum disease and rotting food particles on the tongue. Floss daily & use a toothbrush w-toothpaste to brush as far back on your tongue as possible. (Colgate Total with antibacterial Triclosan works great!) Voila, no more bad breath!

Cure for bad breath?

Where is it?

Head-teeth
You must first find out where it is coming from? It could be your mouth (teeth or tongue), throat (tonsils or adenoids) or even stomach (hiatal hernia) before you can come up with a cure.

Dr. Paul Hartlaub answered:

what cause bad breath?

Several things

Bad_breath
There are many causes for bad breath. Among the more common are gingivitis (inflammed or infected gums), possibly from poor brushing and flossing, and little stones that are formed in the holes in your tonsils, called tonsilloliths. There are more rare causes too. If good brushing and flossing doesn't help, you might see your dentist, primary doctor or nurse practitioner for help.

Bad breath howvto cure?

Depends on cause

Bad_breath
See the following website: http://smilesapartcosmeticdentist.com/fresh-breath-control.htm There are both dental and medical causes of bad breath. You really can't "cure" bad breath although you can prevent or treat it. The most common cause is poor oral hygiene. See a dentist (and\or a physician) for help and guidance.

Remedies for bad breath include regular oral hygiene, dental cleanings, brushing the tongue everyday. Keep the mouth moist all the time and if you have any acid reflux problem or any other stomach problems, see your physician. Using an alcohol free mouthwash after meals will help as well.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

How do I treat bad breath?

Oral hygiene

Bad_breath
Most bad breath is due to crud on the mouth, between the teeth or on the tongue. A good dental flossing with running it over the back of the tongue cures most of these. If it does not, and you are not eating anything like onions or garlic, look for a problem in the upper aerodigestive system.

How to get rid of bad breath?

Well...

Bad_breath
Assuming that you're brushing and flossing regularly, bad breath can be a sign of a chronic sinus infection or an infection in your mouth and/or throat. If you are having any pain in your forehead or cheeks or tenderness in your mouth or throat and/or a stiff neck, see your doc right away. Post nasal drip and gastrointestinal problems can also cause bad breath. It's worth it to have an evaluation
