According to the Bad Breath Institute, it’s estimated that up to 45 percent of the total worldwide population have some level of bad breath, or halitosis – and we’re not talking about “morning breath.” In the U.S. alone, it’s estimated that up to 80 million people experience some sort of halitosis. This has led to an oral hygiene industry valued at some $10 billion domestically. The good news is that bad breath isn’t impossible to overcome, and your dentist is there to help.
Here’s a closer look at how your dentist can help you fend off bad breath:
When it comes to foul breath, the best way to combat it is by adopting – and sticking to – a rigorous oral hygiene routine. With that said, make sure you’re adequately brushing and flossing as recommended and complementing such activity with mouth wash and other products when necessary.
