How do you get rid of bad breath? My breath always smells gross. I mouthwash, brush my teeth, floss, eat mints, chew gum and it's still gross. Anyone have any tips?

In brief: Oxyfresh

Try this product.
Oxyfresh binds to the sulfur compounds and creates a chemical that does not smell bad. It sounds like you are doing everything else to keep the bad breath away.

In brief: Masking the problem

Everything you are doing is covering up the underlying problem..
. Treat the cause and solve your problem. Is it your teeth, periodontal problems, acid reflux, or your diet? Don't guess, go see a dentist and physician. They will be able to help you.

In brief: See your Dentist

You may have periodontal (gum) disease and require treatment.
If you have not had a thorough cleaning, then it is important to have one. Also using a tongue scraper, will remove debris from the back of the tongue that collects and has a foul odor. Use of chlorine dioxide containing mouth rinses has also shown to be effective in some people. (closys ii or breathrx).
