IS BAD BREATH SOMETHING YOU WORRY ABOUT?
Halitosis (bad breath) is more than a conversation killer – it is a dental and medical problem. Halitosis can develop as a symptom of an underlying medical condition such as xerostomia (dry mouth), diabetes or a gastrointestinal problem. Halitosis can also be a sign of periodontal (gum) disease and bacterial build up in the mouth.
