A part of society that should not be underestimated suffers from bad breath. Since people cannot perceive their own bad breath, this is all the worse for those affected. Halitosis can have a negative impact on social life and, if not treated, can also reduce the quality of life.
Halitosis can have many causes. The largest proportion lies in the dental field. The bacterial decomposition of food residues in the mouth produces foul-smelling substances. The bacteria are mainly found on dental plaque and niches, leaking fillings, carious lesions, bad dentures, inflamed gum pockets, inflamed wisdom teeth and not infrequently on the back of the tongue.

In addition to regular brushing of the teeth with a toothbrush and other instruments such as dental floss or interdental brushes, you should also pay attention to the cleanliness of your tongue.

The word halitosis comes from the Latin word for "haze" or "breath" and means "bad breath". It is an excessive, unpleasant odor.
