    What is Bad Breath?

    Bad breath, otherwise known as halitosis is a very common and troublesome condition that affects approximately 25% of the population at some point.

    For many people, bad breath is a temporary and brief concern that may only arise at certain times of the day (such as on waking), or after eating certain foods such as garlic or onions.

    For others, bad breath is a more severe and persistent condition that can have long reaching affects such as social isolation, relationship and work problems.
