If you have bad breath, there are a number of solutions you can consider in order to address the underlying issue, although you won’t be able to prevent a few of the more serious causes of bad breath. For example, if your bad breath is caused by gum disease, acid, reflux, or prescription medications, you may not be able to prevent the problem. Conversely, there may be a few things you could be doing that cause bad breath. For instance, smoking, drinking, and a poor diet could all result in bad breath. The most common reason for bad breath, though, is poor dental hygiene, which can be reversed quickly.

Brushing and flossing properly can be an important part of preventing bad breath.
