  • If a trip to the dentist doesn’t fix it then try your doctor as well.

  • I would definitely see a dentist and use mints!

  • I see the topic heading ‘bad breath’ and I click on it thinking there might be tips to he with mine. I think I have tonsil stones as my mouth smells really bad even though I brush and floss twice every day. The Dr looked at me like I wax an idiot when I spoke to him about it. Told me to chew Extra gum, which I already do

  • I’ve found parsley to be pretty good when I’ve eaten something smelly. If your problem is persistent though, perhaps getting your gums and tonsils checked might provide a curable cause.

  • Definitely a trip to the dentist as it’s most likely tooth or gum related

  • Strawberries can help with bad breath and also act to whiten your teeth.

  • Mint, parsley, basil, cilantro and dill.

  • get your tonsils checked out

  • Yup, agree with others! Parsley! Also check in with hit dentist to make sure there isn’t something else contributing to your problem.

  • Parsley, parsley, parsley! Eating carrots & celery also combats bad breath, and use baking soda on your toothbrush to both clean your teeth, and your gums and tongue will give you a much fresher breath. Flossing between your teeth also helps enormously, as it removed food particles that can contribute to bad breath.

  • there are some really good answers here.

  • there are some good comments here

  • Bad breath could be a sign of gum problems. My mum used to have shocking breath, then she had her gums treated, and now she no longer has the problem. I would recommend a trip to the dentist :)

  • i will try some parsley too

  • We find parsley a quick and healthy fix :)
