Bad Breath,

Bad breath, officially known as halitosis, is a problem that plagues most people at some time in their life.  While breath fresheners such as mints and gums can temporarily solve the issue, there are preventive measures that can be taken to stop bad breath before it starts.

The best way to prevent bad breath is to maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine.  Food debris in the teeth and gums is an ideal environment to foster the bacteria that cause bad breath.  Removing this debris often through brushing and flossing is the most effective way to prevent bad breath.  Another way to eliminate and prevent halitosis is to use an antiseptic mouthwash to kill bacteria every time you brush and in between meals.
