In brief: Bad Breath

Start by reading the information on this site: http://smilesapartcosmeticdentist.
Com/fresh-breath-control.Htm are you sure there are no dental problems? Is that your assessment or your dentist's? If you and your dentist can rule out dental issues, speak to your physician. That website also contains list of special mouth rinses for sulfur accumulation in mouth (as a last resort).

Make sure you drink plenty of water during the day staying well hydrated can cut bad breath in half. Visit dentist regularly ,brush twice a day and floss daily. Alcohol ,coffee will dry your mouth n give you bad breath
Dr. Gary Sandler
Use a tongue scraper daily as well.

In brief: Check teeth again

Do you still have your wisdom teeth? If so they tend to build up plaque which causes mouth odor. Do you floss every day? Rarely halitosis (bad breath) can come from diseased tonsils.
Are they large or painful? Do you have symptoms of sinusitis (headache, fever, cough, nasal congestion)? Sinusitis can cause bad breath in some cases. Try flossing more and have wisdom teeth removed.

In brief: Full mouth detox

Bad breath most of the time is caused by bacteria, same bacteria cause gum disease, so if you do not have teeth problems and no sinus problems, still there are several other areas ( under gum line , or your tongue) that can retain those bacteria that form colonies in billions of bacteria and produce certain gases and other waste that smells when you exhale air. Full mouth detox removes bacteria.
