Halitosis: how to get rid of it?

Halitosis, colloquially known as "bad breath," is a taboo subject in many countries. However, the search engine "Google" lists over 1 million entries for the search term "bad breath". This is not surprising, since halitosis is a pathological condition that occurs in about 50 to 60% of the world's population.

Generally, a certain concentration of volatile sulfur compounds and hydrocarbons is present in everyone's mouth. If this concentration rises to an unacceptable level, we speak of bad breath. We are often unsure whether we have bad breath and rarely dare to talk about it.

Yet, when bad breath persists for a long time, it is very important to find out the cause. Mouthwash, toothpastes and alleged miracle cures will not get the problem under control.

The first step when you suspect bad breath is an objective measurement. We are happy to offer you such a measurement of your breath discreetly as part of a session at LovelySmile. If the result of the measurement is positive, do not panic. Today we know that 90% of the causes of bad breath can be found directly in the mouth and throat area and that the most common reason for pathological bad breath is bacterial plaque and inflammation, which can usually be treated well with appropriate therapy at LovelySmile.

We will be happy to advise and treat you!
