In brief: Proper diagnosis/car

Proper diagnosis and care.
Halitosis is caused by a myriad of factors, any one of which could be responsible. Here is a short list: periodontal disease, certain medications, diet, dental caries, poor oral hygiene and more. Your best first option is to get your teeth cleaned and have a thorough exam by a dentist. Discuss your concerns and he/she will recommend a proper course of tx for you.

In brief: Oral Hygiene

The most important first step is good oral hygiene with tooth brushing after any food and flossing.
If this doen't do the trick, you may need to see a doctor because sometime tonsils and such can contribute.

In brief: You can!!!

Very common question.
Bad breath is caused by oral bacteria, billions of them. When you brush for 2 min, floss for 2 min, rinse for 1 min, you remove may be 5 % of those bacteria and even this is only temporary. So unless you completely eliminate those odor producing bacteria from our mouth ... Nothing will help. We have developed bios protocol where we can eliminate 99.98% bacteria - completely!

This is good advice. When you're done flossing, run the floss over the back of your tongue and often some of the smelly stuff will come off this way. If you've got a tonsillolith, a bent paper clip can remove it. Best wishes.

In brief: Start with

Good dental hygiene.
Proper and daily flossing and brushing and use a good mouthwash.
