Chronic bad breath is also known as halitosis. This embarrassing condition can affect social relationships and even professional credibility and performance. It can be very uncomfortable for others to address the issue, and even more uncomfortable for them to smell the offensive odor throughout an entire conversation or meeting. To avoid this undesirable situation, following these tips can help reduce or eliminate chronic bad breath:
Popular dental hygiene items like toothbrushes, floss, toothpaste, and tongue scrapers can help the average person avoid chronic bad breath between visits to the dentist twice a year. But the dentist is not the only professional who can help with halitosis. A family physician can help where dental care leaves off, including diagnosing and treating respiratory infections and providing resources and tips for quitting smoking.
