       EWW!! BAD BREATH
 DO YOU SUFFER FROM BAD BREATH???



Bad breath also called as halitosis is an unpleasant odor originating from the mouth 
More than 80 million people suffer from bad breath. In most cases it originates from the gums and tongue.
The odor is caused by wastes from bacteria in the mouth, the decay of food particles, other debris in your mouth and poor oral hygiene.
The decay and debris produce a sulfur compound that causes the unpleasant odor
