Banning Bad Breath

Bad breath can have a variety of causes, including poor dental hygiene, using tobacco products, and medical conditions such as sinusitis, postnasal drip, diabetes and a gastrointestinal problem, according to the American Dental Association. One of the best ways to prevent bad breath is to brush your teeth and tongue twice a day and floss once a day.
