  • If you donot have any cavity and have only problem of halitosis or bad breath then along with maintaining good oral hygiene, you should do regular flossing and tongue cleaning. If you are not able to clean the tongue with tonuge scrapper then you can use other methods like using dental floss gently to clean the tongue. Deposits on tongue is one of the major cause of halitosis. You should visit your dentist after every six months and get cleaning done, that will also help you. Along with this you can use some good antimicrobial mouthwash which will help in reducing the halitosis.
