    No matter what for the past year I've always seemed to have bad breathe. I brush my team twice a day, there quite white, I have chewing gum all the time just to prevent it from smelling but it just always stinks. What can I do to stop it from smelling all the time? And plus why does everyone's breathe smell in the morning?

    Brush back of tongue, under and gums. Use mouthwash. FLoss. Watch what you eat, meat in particular.

    People get morning breath because the bacteria build up over night and your mouth needs refreshing - it has been resting so it's not been chewing or salivating which helps get things going. Have a look at your tongue - does it look coated/yellow? Most bad breath actually comes from the tongue not the teeth! Buy a tongue scraper and gently scrape the gunk off. Use an antibacterial mouthwash and floss to make sure no bits of food are left in your teeth. Drink plenty of fluids - water is best of course, I also like peppermint tea - and make sure you have regular bowel movements. It does sound like you have good oral hygiene so maybe you need to book a doctor's appointment to make sure there are no underlying health issues. Good luck!

    if you practice good dental hygiene and still have persistent halitosis it can mean you have something like tonsilar stones or an untreated infection.
    A dentist should be your first port of call.

    Check to see if you have tonsil stones. They aren't dangerous or anything but they are notorious for causing bad breath. Look behind and on your tonsils and you might see these little white pus like spots and that will be a tonsil stone. Sometimes you cough them up and you can smell or taste them and they are horrid. No amount of brushing or gum gets rid of their smell.

    Get a tongue scraper! I was struggling with bad breath too. A tongue scraper will remove all the gunk on your tongue that your toothbrush won't. Brush your teeth, use a tongue scraper then use mouthwash. Take some gum too to be on the safe side

    Most likely something to do with your diet. Do you eat regularly? bad breath is also ironically associated with hunger, due to some of the substances the body produces when in starvation
