Hello doctor,

I am suffering from bad breath. Bad smell prevails after I brush my teeth or clean my tongue. I want to get rid of it. Is there any permanent solution?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Despite brushing well, there is some deposit of tartar (calculus) and plaque over a period. You should get a regular clean up (scaling - once a year) done by a dentist.
  • Another common reason can be due to cavities. For that, a checkup is necessary and need fillings.
  • Once these reasons are ruled out, if bad breath persists, then we need to consider other systemic factors.
  • Meanwhile, you can regularly use Colgate Plax or Listerine mouthwash twice a day along with brushing twice a day.
