  • First of all you have to find out the cause of bad breath which can be poor oral hygiene, deposits on teeth or coating on the tongue. These are the local causes. There can be systomic causes also like if you have any stomach problem or sinusitis. When the diagnosis is made then treatment is done accordingly. For poor oral hygiene and deposits, SCRP is done which should be done 6 monthly. if it is due to coated tongue then tongue cleaning is very important which should be done on regular basis with tongue cleaner. If the cause is systomic then you have to take treatment for the same. So  visit your dentist and get diagnosis made and treatment then will be done accordingly.
