Dr. Salim Saab Otolaryngology (ENT)
There are several causes for halitosis among them teeth problems, teeth decay, Tonsils, Sinusitis, Oesophageal Diverticula,...etc. So, to fix the problem, the cause of bad breath should be determined in order to give the proper treatment.
Dr. Rita Mouawie Dentistry
start by getting to the root of the problem gradually going from your teeth and mouth, to your stomach...

from a dental point of view you could do the following:
- get your teeth checked to find out if you have tooth decay, badly adapted crowns, septum syndrome, abces ...
- drink lots of water: a dry mouth and dehydration causes bad breath
- scrape your tongue each time you brush your teeth
- avoid drinking or eating 30 minutes after you brush your teeth
- avoid sugary food
- the use of chewing gums and whatnot, do not fix the problem as they do not attack the root of the problem which could be simply bad hygiene.
- don't spend too much time without eating. eating properly and regularly fights bad breath.
- eat rough food which helps clean the back of your throat (such as bread)
- visit your dentist once every 6 months
