Halitosis, otherwise referred as "bad breath" happens to everyone. If you’ve ever gotten that not-so-fresh feeling during an important moment or you're just talking with friends, you’re not alone.

In most cases, finding the cause is the first step toward treating this preventable condition. Bad breath can happen anytime due to bacteria that naturally lives in your mouth.
