Bad Breath (halitosis)

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, is an unpleasant odor that originates from the mouth. It can be caused by various factors, including poor oral hygiene, gum disease, dry mouth, certain foods, smoking, or underlying medical conditions. Regular brushing, flossing, and tongue cleaning, along with routine dental check-ups, are essential for controlling bad breath. Dentists can help identify the underlying cause of halitosis and provide appropriate treatment or recommendations to improve oral hygiene and freshen breath.
