Have Bad Breath Even After Brushing?Have Bad Breath Even After Brushing?

It’s true, for some people, no matter how hard they try to clean their mouth, brushing and flossing, their mouth still smells like something crawled up in there and died. This type of condition would be some serious halitosis. Bad breath even after brushing needs powerful help, but only if it is really there. Find out if you really have bad breath here.

In some cases, the person with the bad breath may want to look for a second opinion before taking the torch to their mouth. We can be very critical of ourselves and exaggerate the situation to the point where it will rule, and ruin, our lives. Asking a trusted friend or a family member to test your breath for you would resolve most self-consciousness about bad breath.

True Bad Breath, Even After Brushing

No matter what you do, the mouth continues to emit an unpleasant odor. Constant brushing and mouthwash gargling seem to make little to no positive effect at all. This even has been confirmed by a trusted friend. If it is true, and the bad breath persists, professional help may be ideal.

But what causes bad breath? Bad breath, or halitosis, is caused by bacteria in the mouth emitting sulphur-like smells. Most people automatically perceive individuals with bad breath to not practice proper oral hygiene. This couldn’t, however, be far from the truth.

Causes of Bad Breath

Many studies show the various foods and beverages people ingest have a direct correlation on their overall health. With this in mind, certain foods can affect the production of bacteria in the mouth. Coffee is a known beverage that can cause brown stains on the teeth. In addition to this, it causes the mouth to give of a foul smell due to the residue that sticks to the gums, teeth and mouth lining.

Another cause for bad breath is certain illnesses such as gallbladder dysfunction, liver disease, diabetes and sinus infections. Some allergies can also cause the mouth to give off a foul scent.

 How To Fight Bad Breath Even After Brushing

Eliminating bad breath is relatively easy but takes a bit of time due to the lifestyle habits that need to be changed and improved. The one thing that many forget is the food residue that is left on the back of the tongue. If it is not cleaned off, YOU WILL STILL HAVE BAD BREATH EVEN AFTER BRUSHING TEETH. An inexpensive tongue scraper tool can be used to scrape all the residue left on the back of the tongue before or after brushing teeth. Working it into the regular brushing routine will resolve this problem for half the people suffering with bad breath.

Being more conscious about the food that is eaten and the beverages consumed, avoiding drinks such as coffee and those with alcohol content are all things that should be taken into account when trying to prevent bad breath. These drinks may cause the mouth to dry out, making it more conducive for bacteria to breed and create more problems. In addition to this, the odors that certain foods such as cheese, garlic and onions emit, tend to stick to the teeth and gums, causing the breath to smell bad.

If the bad breath condition is still persistent, it is wise to visit a doctor. Bad breath can sometimes be an indication of an underlying and more serious condition. It is in the best interest of the person to visit a doctor for early detection and overall peace of mind.

This Is Guaranteed To Work

The best method for all-day fresh breath is to use Oxyfresh’s 3 step kit: First use a tongue scraper (humble brag: Oxyfresh’s Oolitt® Tongue Scraper is 2x more effective than other tongue scrapers on the market). It removes bacteria on the tongue causing bad breath. When you see what comes off of it, you’ll be wondering where it’s been all your life.

Then brush with an Oxyfresh non-alcohol toothpaste. Toothpaste containing alcohol dries out tissues in the mouth, which actually leads to MORE bad breath. If you have sensitive teeth, Oxyfresh toothpaste is also low abrasive to help protect your teeth enamel.

Finally, rinse your shining smile with an alcohol free mouthwash to ensure all the bacteria and debris you scraped and brushed off is gone for good. All of our toothpastes and mouthwashes are alcohol and dye free to protect your smile without drying, burning or staining.

Best of all, this complete bad-breath-eliminating system comes in this Ultimate Fresh Breath Kit from Oxyfresh.

  1. Hi I have a question about bad breath, In my case I brush my teeth all the time but still my breath is so bad what I observed there is bad smell coming out from my upper right teeth.

    1. We recommend using our Power Paste toothpaste for two minutes, then rinsing with our Power Rinse and finally applying our Super Relief Dental Gel to the area. If bad breath persists we recommend consulting your dentist since you isolated the odor to your upper right teeth.

    2. Make sure you brush your whole tongue. Like as far back as possible. Like at the point where you have a gag reflex. Most of the bad breathe comes from back there.

  2. Klain,

    It sounds like you have a lot of sulfur compounds in your mouth. These cause bad breath. Our best remedy is our three step process. 1) Scrap your tongue with our Oolitt Scraper. 2) Brush with our Power Paste toothpaste for 2 minutes. 3) Rinse with our Power Rinse for 1 minute.

    You’ll need to follow this program in the morning, after lunch and before bed. It will take care of your bad breath.

  3. Both of my parents both have terrible breath and they passed it on to me. No matter how many times I brush my teeth t different products I use nothing works. I’m tired of spending my money on products that don’t work, and still get no where. This bad breath is messing up my life. I’m scared to play basketball anymore, or go places because of what people will say about my breath it’s horrible. I feel so low every day. I just need help. Real help.

  4. So I have had bad breath for a few months now, despite brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash constantly, usually three times a day. I have consulted my doctor, but she couldn’t find anything that could be causing it. There was no evidence of post nasal drip or any other sickness such as that. I notice that it seems to be coming from the back of my mouth, and out of my nose. Any ideas what it might be? I’ve tried everything.

  5. Hey guys I really need your help, my name is James

    I think I have Bad breath b cause of my sinus infection but please please please help me cure it I’m beggin you guys. It’s so embarrassing every single day at school. I can’t talk to anyone

  6. I brush my teeth 4 times a day because I have braces, use a tongue scraper and have no cavities, but have horrible bad breath, why is this?

  7. Hun, these are tonsil stones. Once you have tonsil stones there is NOTHING, you can do to get rid of them. I had this problem and the only solution I found ( after trying everything), was to actually get my tonsils removed in which obviously removed tonsil stones. This is the only solution and has made such a massive difference to me in a day to day.

  8. Thank you for your information on bad breath, I have tried most of your suggestion for the last 18 months with no real difference, I do hope this is the answer.

  9. I have serious bad breath. I have had for like 3 years now and I have tried everything possible to cure it… Flossing,brushing,mouth wash. It has affected my daily activities so much that i can’t even talk to most people because when I do, they love their faces away or cover their noses. What else do I do?

  10. Stop eating any forms of dairy. I fought it for years and stopped eating dairy then drank more water throughout the day and it was gone after a week or two of no dairy. Thank me later. All the science we have today and a random black god tells you to stop eating dairy and your breath is back to normal. Live life bro. Good luck. If not the dairy scrub your tongue more than you usually do.

  11. After years of suffering horrible embarrassing bad breath,I gave Oxyfresh a try as a last resort. I bough every product on the market but nothing worked! Omg I have to say the very first use I felt free and liberated of horrific halitosis halitosis, it worked all day even after i ate food. I was finally free to talk to people without a mouthful of gum in my mouth!

    1. Hi Kay,
      Thank you for sharing your experience. I am so glad you had these amazing results with our products. 🙂

  12. Klain, did the advice actually work, this is a crucial problem and recommended a tongue scraper and yet another toothpaste and rinse, with no comments from cured patients… most of us have seen a doctor, dentist, have perfect hygiene but are still told by friends to brush our teeth as we smell so bad.

  13. Hi I brush my teeth every day twice a day I already have a diagnosed narrow salver gland so I suffer with dry mouth I use a high fluoride tooth paste but my breath still smells bad
