    Bad Breath is essentially an unwanted odour and smell which is not appreciated by self and others nearby. Thus it also means that a Bad Breath for some can be a good breath for others.

    Anyways, for the smell which we consider as bad, can arise from various sources.
    They are as follows:
    1. From the Mouth itself - from decaying teeth, gums, stomatitis, Gingivitis, decaying tooth / tooth root, Salivary gland infection, tobacco chewers, not brushing teeth.

    2. From the throat - During throat infections, mumps, chain smokers.

    3. From the stomach and the intestines - In Hyperacidity, infections and diseases, due to indigestion, eating too much non vegetarian food and also by eating too much raw vegetarian , improperly cooked food.

    To avoid bad breath (Halitosis) - Avoid bad habits like Smoking, Chewing Gums continuously, avoid eating excess and continuous heavy food.
    Bad Breath is expected during diseases and infections, thus have proper treatment done.
    Brush teeth 3 times daily - in the morning after waking up, after lunch, after dinner and also intermittently when you feel the need of it.

    If there are some other reasons like for example after working in a very smelly area and after having bath, your body does not stink but the mouth smells, then hold 2-3 cloves in your mouth which will remove the smell.
