How to get rid of my bad breath and taste if I have acid reflux?

Suggestions. Obviously the best solution would be to reduce or eliminate the acid reflux. Have you seen or are you being treated by a gastroenterologist? Are you following all the treatment advice? That being said, brush, floss, rinse and use a tongue scraper. Also see the following website for some rinses that may be helpful: http://smilesapartcosmeticdentist.Com/fresh-breath-control.Htm.
Antacids/PPIs. You can try antacids or ppi meds like Prilosec if you are not currently taking any. If you are and the symptoms of your reflux aren't improving then see a doctor. Parsley oil supplements can help with bad breath from stomach issues.

Could Be Grinding. When people grind or clench their teeth, they can become sensitive. Also, if you find some abrasion along the gumline, it could also be due to over-aggressive brushing. I like to tell my patients to "tickle their teeth to death, don't scrub them like the kitchen sink.". Read more...
