Bad breath - what gets rid of it?
I've tried brushing every hour, mouthwash, and antibiotics. Its still there. Within a few seconds of me starting to speak, people move a couple of steps away.
Additional Details
I have indeed been to a dental hygienist and had everything cleaned, but to no avail. The bad breath was back next day.

apprantly brushing ur tounge helps :)

go to a dentist XD

Even tho every time my breath smells bad l just eat and it's fine again

mouthwash. carry a little bottle around

I use to eat yogurt to mask the smell, however it doesn't completely take it away. Also, you can try biting into a lemon slice or anything that has citrus.
It could also be a deeper problem with your teeth and gums. I would suggest visiting the dentist to get a further and more thorough answer.

Brush your tongue with the toothbrush. Build up of plaque on your tongue makes your breath smell. x

I suggest really getting your tongue more than your teeth when you brush. Also, try using mint-flavoured gum :]

Best of luck!

I have this thing with one of my tonsils that acts up every once in a while, where this whitish, curd looking stuff comes out. It feels like I have a piece of bread or something stuck in the back of my throat. When I have one, it makes my breath stink. I have to stick my pinkey finger back there and push, and this junk just comes out, and man, it stinks. After I get that out, my breath is fine.

I've been to the doctor about it, but he thinks I'm crazy...oh, and the right side is the one that bothers me. When I clean my right ear out, I gag. If I clean my ears EVERY time I get out of the shower, I don't get that thing in the back of the throat...gross, I know, but maybe this will help you.

um try brushing yoru teeth for ten minutes and then after that use a breath mint then take a piece of paper and fold it on your teeth for 5 minutes it really works

scrap your tongue


Nostradamus, (the guy who predicted the rise and fall of Hitler a few hundred years before Hitler was thought of) made pills out of rose petals and had people put them under their tongue until they dissolved. This was supposed to help bad breath.

i would see a dentist.

Beeeeep :)
drink lots of water. dehydration can cause bad breath.

ぜんまい仕掛け ♥
Chewing gum regularly, halitosis spray, a visit to a specialist, stronger toothpaste (I recommend Arm and Hammer) and drinking water. I also heard eating little and often prevents your mouth drying up (as if with chewing gum) so make sure you're getting enough nutrition. Sorting out your diet could also help.

try breath mints

Jammies :)
"Halitosis, or most commonly bad breath are terms used to describe noticeably unpleasant odors exhaled in breathing – whether the smell is from an oral source due to bacteria.
Currently, chronic halitosis is not very well understood by most physicians and dentists, so effective treatment is not always easy to find. Six strategies may be suggested:

1.Gently cleaning the tongue surface twice daily is the most effective way to keep bad breath in control; that can be achieved using a tongue cleaner or tongue brush/scraper to wipe off the bacterial biofilm, debris and mucus. An inverted teaspoon may also do the job; a toothbrush should be avoided, as the bristles only spread the bacteria in the mouth, and grip the tongue, causing a gagging reflex. Scraping or otherwise damaging the tongue should be avoided, and scraping of the V-shaped row of taste buds found at the extreme back of the tongue should also be avoided. Brushing a small amount of antibacterial mouth rinse or tongue gel onto the tongue surface will further inhibit bacterial action.

2.Eating a healthy breakfast with rough foods helps clean the very back of the tongue.

3.Chewing gum: Since dry mouth can increase bacterial buildup and cause or worsen bad breath, chewing sugarless gum can help with the production of saliva, and thereby help to reduce bad breath. Chewing may help particularly when the mouth is dry, or when one cannot perform oral hygiene procedures after meals (especially those meals rich in protein). This aids in provision of saliva, which washes away oral bacteria, has antibacterial properties and promotes mechanical activity which helps cleanse the mouth. Some chewing gums contain special anti-odor ingredients. Chewing on fennel seeds, cinnamon sticks, mastic gum or fresh parsley are common folk remedies.

4.Gargling right before bedtime with an effective mouthwash (see below). Several types of commercial mouthwashes have been shown to reduce malodor for hours in peer-reviewed scientific studies. Mouthwashes may contain active ingredients which are inactivated by the soap present in most toothpastes. Thus it is recommended to refrain from using mouthwash directly after toothbrushing with paste.

5.Maintaining proper oral hygiene, including daily tongue cleaning, brushing, flossing, and periodic visits to dentists and hygienists. Flossing is particularly important in removing rotting food debris and bacterial plaque from between the teeth, especially at the gumline. Dentures should be properly cleaned and soaked overnight in antibacterial solution (unless otherwise advised by your dentist).
6.Maintain water levels in the body by drinking several glasses of water a day."

Hope This Helps ^.^

That's definitely abnormal. There are several things that could cause recurrent mouth infections, a few being a compromised immune system, inadequate saliva, or hormonal imbalance. One of the most common causes is hormonal contraceptives, so if you're on the pill, you might want to switch to a different brand (err, your name is Ricky, so probably not). Do you have chronic sinus ailments or acid reflux? Diabetes?

When you say that antibiotics don't work, do you mean that the bad breadth recurs, or that it never stopped? Antibiotics should reduce halitosis, as that is caused by bacteria... Weird. If it isn't bacteria, you could have a fungal infection.

Anyway, seems reason enough to have some blood work done. Good luck.
