Over 40 Million Americans have chronic halitosis, which is persistent bad breath. 90% of all halitosis is of oral, not systemic origin. Patients suffering from halitosis frequently complain about the significant impact on their personal life.
Americans spend more than one billion dollars a year on over-the-counter halitosis products, many of which are ineffective because they only mask the problem.
Most causes of halitosis can be treated effectively by your dentist.
