•Poor oral hygiene
•Respiratory, digestive, or other health problems
Practicing good oral hygiene and avoiding tobacco and some foods often helps people with bad-smelling breath. You may want to try using a tongue scraper to clean food from your tongue. You could also just brush your tongue with your toothbrush. But if doing so doesn’t seem to help or if you always need mouthwash to hide bad breath, talk to your dentist.
