If you are suffering from bad breath, despite using treatment products such as mouthwash to help eliminate the bacteria responsible, it may be linked to an underlying condition. If halitosis continues to return, it may be caused not by bacteria in your mouth but rather from an oral health ailment or deep underlying conditions in your body.

To ensure that bad breath can be properly treated, always make sure your mouth is clean. Bad breath is often the result of poor oral hygiene, so be sure to rinse your mouth with mouthwash and care for your teeth by brushing and flossing on a daily basis. Furthermore, be sure to clean your tongue with a brush or a tongue scraper, as your tongue is a known cause for harboring bacteria linked to bad breath.

Bad breath may also be caused by an underlying condition in your mouth or body. If it is caused by oral health disorders, such as gum disease, or general health conditions, such as liver and kidney problems, these issues will first need to be treated in order to effectively eradicate the chances of bad breath returning.
