While all of us have bad breath from time to time for a variety of reasons, good oral hygiene should keep it to a minimum, and there are other remedies you can try. But bad breath that lingers for more than 24 hours can also be a sign of gum disease, intestinal problems or a more serious condition. If you brush and floss diligently, but can't banish bad breath on your own, see your doctor or dentist. You should also see a doctor if your breath smells sweet or fruity, as this could be a sign of diabetes.
