My girlfriend has bad breath (non health related) and we're looking for solutions. How can we best mask it when kissing? Anybody ever experience this with their SOs? Tips?

That can't be right. It must be related to teeth, gum, or the stomach.

Does she go to the dentist regularly (every six months?). I get bad breath when I’m getting closer to needing a cleaning. It’s a good idea to use a water pic and floss every day, and brush twice a day (obviously). Plaque leads to bad breath

Not sure which firm specializes in solving for this. I’d guess kpmg, but not 100% sure

It could be related to her dental health. She may need to see a periodontist to check for plaque buildup below her gums. If so, they will give her direction on what will need to be done to remove it.

1. Brush at least twice a day or after meals for the full 2 min, or 30 sec per quadrant of mouth
1.a. Brushing with just water between meals is better than not at all if the idea of a strong toothpaste flavor midday doesn’t sit well.
2. Switch to an electric toothbrush like Oral B, and change the brush heads as recommended (my dentist actively discourages quip and other trendy brands, what you’re looking for is a brush head that rotates and doesn’t just vibrate)
3. After brushing well, use a tongue scraper. This was a game changer for me! And most can even be thrown in the dishwasher, so having two is great so they can be switched out and cleaned regularly.
4. After scraping, floss well. I’ve found that using the little disposable floss picks is what gets me to actually floss. It was a weird mental thing and my dentist told me that lots of people are better about flossing with those than if they only have normal floss at home.
5. After flossing, mouthwash time! I like the purple listerine kind.

Other things: being hydrated makes a big difference, there are products like therabreath that are made to help with bad breath, and imperfection with this stuff is better than total failure or noncompliance. Like, better to floss even only once a week than not at all ever.

Excellent points. One thing to add to the flossing: Waterpik. Definitely a game changer. I also use the purple Listerine. Good stuff.

Have her see an ENT. Sinus or allergy issues are a leading contributor to bad breath.

I’m not a doctor (MD), but I am a doctor ( Ph.D.) who helps those other doctors, including ENTs, so take my advice with a grain of salt (which is also good for gargling).

Use mouth wash every day, helps over time

Is she constantly eating onions and garlic? Otherwise it’s health related

Improve oral hygiene? Get cleaning done every 6 months. Floss after each meal. Brush your teeth 2-3 times a day or after each meal. Brush your tongue. Use mouthwash and gargle to remove germs in the throat. Eat less sugar (sugar enables bacteria growth). Drink more water. Or maybe she has h. pylori
