Bad breath can sometimes be caused by underlying dental or medical reasons. However, in the vast majority of cases the problem can be cured by simply changing our dental routine or avoiding certain foods. The best ways to avoid bad breath in the first place include:
– Brushing teeth twice daily and flossing once
– Using a tongue scraper to clean the tongue surface
– Rinsing with an alcohol-free mouthwash
If the problem is persistent your dentist should be consulted “for additional advice and to discuss new treatment options” to relieve the condition.
