  • Mouth odor is not at all a normal thing. First you need to look for the causes of mouth odor. Few of the common ones are:

    1. Dry mouth
    2. Poor oral hygiene
    3. Stress
    4. Carious teeth
    5. Tonsils
    6. Certain food products

    After knowing the cause you can confidently go for a specific treatment. Few of the treatment options are

    1. Never allowing your mouth to get dry
    2. chewing a mint gum
    3. Change in the diet
    4. Brushing properly as given in the link....http://www.identalhub.com/article_why-do-we-need-to-brush-our-teeth-156.aspx
    5. Green Tea and cloves are also helpful
