Bad Breath Guru
Hi Andriana,

First of all, let me say that bad breath does not necessarily mean that person has poor oral hygiene. Despite brushing your teeth regularly, are you brushing and cleaning your tongue as well?

Yes, it is important to brush your tongue, but I know that people with a sensitive gag reflex can really hate having to do it. It’s also important to brush the roof of your mouth too. Tongue scraping (and brushing) alone won’t fix bad breath and/or if you have white tongue. It depends on the shape and texture of your tongue, diet and a bunch of other things. Also, you can hurt your tongue if you scrape it too hard. You have to clean your tongue correctly. You can check out more about tongue coating here http://www.therabreath.com/art_whitetongue.asp and find out more about that yucky gunk on your tongue too.

For the back of your tongue, try using a mouthwash without alcohol in it, that should help too. Try any of Therabreath’s mouthwashes. None of them contain alcohol and they are safe enough to swallow.

There are several things that may cause bad breath. Dry mouth and gum disease are often linked to bad breath. This is because the volatile sulfur producing compounds in our mouth that cause bad breath thrive in a dry, anaerobic environment. When our mouths are full of healthy, oxygen-rich saliva, then it is harder for the bacteria to thrive and create bad breath.

Diet can also cause bad breath. Dairy foods, foods rich in sugar, a diet rich in meat products and alcohol can result in bad breath. If you are lactose intolerant, this might be the main cause of your bad breath.

Dairy foods are notorious for creating bad breath. People that are lactose intolerant end up with more dense proteins available as bad breath fuel for the bacteria than those who have no problem with dairy foods (milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, etc.) The end result is a buildup of amino acids, which are easily converted into volatile sulfur compounds by the anaerobic bacteria found within the surface of your tongue and throat.

To avoid bad breath, brush, floss and use an oral rinse without alcohol in it 2-3 times a day. Make sure you brush the roof of your mouth and your tongue as well. Eating crisp fruits and vegetables like apples and carrots can help too.

There’s an article titled “Bad Breath Remedies That Work” here: http://blog.therabreath.com/2010/08/bad-breath-remedies-that-work/#more-1234. It gives some more tips on how to avoid stinky breath.

I hope this helps!

I am Borg
You have to scrape your tongue as well.

do you floss? if not, there,s your answer.

did you brush your tongue? stick your tongue out in the mirror and look all the way in the back, is it pink? if not, try to get some of that old food out of there, it could be your problem

one day i had real bad breath myself, found out my tongue was actually causing my bad breath. just scrub it with the brush, tongue cleaner didnt work for **** with me

You need to brush your tongue as well.
That's where most of the bacteria is mate.
If you do this, brush your gums more.
Bacteria and food particles get stuck in your gums and tightly between teeth.

(: xo

You could have gingivitis. It could be coming from your stomach.
