Bad Breath or Halitosis can have a terrible impact on you socially and it is even something your best friends can be reluctant to mention.
There are over 80 different causes for Halitosis but around 75% are caused by something going on in your mouth. It can also be caused by extra-oral causes – problems with the respiratory system, the digestive tract or of systemic origin.
The diagnosis of these extra-oral causes is rarely straightforward, which is why visiting the Fresh Breath Clinic to eliminate the most likely cause, a problem in your mouth, is the logical first step.
