One common problem for many people is halitosis.

Your smile often depends on making sure that you are eating a healthy diet. If for any reason you are eating products that are dangerous for your teeth and gums, you will increase your risk for oral health problems including bad breath. Because bad breath is often linked food particles in your mouth that produce foul odors, you will need to make sure that any harmful those particles are removed. Although various forms of cosmetic mouthwash help to mask bad breath, you will need to use therapeutic mouthwash to eliminate the bacteria causing it.

Aside from using mouthwash to help treat bad breath, you will need to make sure that you are focusing on all aspects of your oral hygiene care.
