Hi doctor,

My son has had bad breath from his mouth for the past years. Even after brushing twice a day and rinsing his mouth after eating, his symptoms do not seem to improve. Because of this, he loses confidence while talking to others. He does not feel comfortable visiting a doctor for this. Please suggest some treatment modalities to help improve his bad breath. Kindly help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I suggest you convince him to visit a dentist to get looked up. He may have calculus and plaque along with some decayed teeth, which may be causing it. I suggest he use warm salt water rinses twice daily or Betadine rinse till then.
