What Is Halitosis?
Halitosis, otherwise known as bad breathe, is described as a bad smell that comes from the mouth when one exhales. Bad breath may come from the mouth or from an underlying medical condition such as respiratory infections, gastrointestinal infections and sinuses among others. Most causes of bad breath can be controlled or managed. Bad breath has been classified in to two categories. The first is transient whereby it disappears after flossing, eating or brushing the teeth. The other type is transient which may require a person to seek medical help.
