My daughter has very bad breath since she was at a young age. Her dentists thought that it was due to the denture put on to straighten her teeth. The denture was taken off a few years ago but the problem still remains. Mouthwash helps sometimes but not for long. Is there a cure for bad breath?
Bad breath is commonly associated with bacteria that reside on the back of the tongue. The best remedy for this is the use of a metal tongue-scraper (not a brush, but a metallic horse-shoe shaped device) that you use to scrape the tongue from as far back as it can reach forward. This will remove much of the mucous and associated bacteria. After some days there will be a noticeable improvement.
It may also be worth checking with gastroenterologist as halitosis can also be caused by stomach bacteria or even reflux.
