Proper routine repeated daily oral care and hygiene: Brush teeth twice daily for 3 minutes, along with daily flossing after each meal to remove food particles, plaque, and bacteria.
Mouthwashes and breath fresheners: Short term freshener agents are not cures or solutions, as they cover-up and mask existing conditions. Alcohol based products may actually worsen your bad breath.
Antimicrobial prescription rinses: This is an effective means of reducing bad breath, even more effective than mouthwash, although not a definitive solution.
Treatment and maintenance of all dental conditions: A first step in reducing bad breath is by achieving a healthy dental condition. This requires complete treatment of all periodontal and dental deficiencies including caries, debridement and scaling of gums and roots of teeth, and correcting other anomalies that contribute to food and bacterial entrapment.

Treating bad breath, or halitosis, is a process not a cure. It requires continuous commitment and routine repeated maintenance by the patient, just as it would when dieting, getting healthy, and staying in shape. Once the desired short term goals are achieved, then one must maintain this achievement through routine repeated commitment.
Since the primary cause of bad breath is bacteria, there is no magic pill or a permanent cure for this condition. Bacteria grow and repopulate. As long as a person is alive, the halitosis bacteria will grow in the dark and inaccessible areas of the oral environment. Removing the bacteria with a combination of mechanical and chemical procedures is the only effective means of treating bad breath. Although most bad breath aids are either at-home care devices, or gums and mouthwashes, the only effective means of bringing bad breath under control is by seeking the services and guidance of a specially trained professional in the field.
Due to this fact that bad breath is caused by bacteria and bacteria repopulate, it is important to disrupt bacterial activity by maintenance and routine repeated treatments. This balanced approach will minimize the bad breath bacterial levels and their byproducts by maintaining a healthy environment for a longer lasting, fresh-clean breath.
