Haven had a long time experience with a friend that suffered from bad breath (halitosis) I can still remember the day a he told me her wife said he had puppy breath. As affectionate as that might sounds to him he knew what she really meant was that he had bad breath. Being somewhat shy in the first place, this only compounded his lack of confidence and made him totally aware of his breath problem from that day on.
Rarely was there a date from then on that he didn’t have a supply of mints, gum, or some other type of breath altering products available to him. His bad breath was consuming him during his dates with his wife or being in close contact with anyone else for that matter.
If you are one of the millions of sufferers of chronic bad breath then I’m sure you can relate to me. My friend is not alone. According to research, it is estimated that there are over 18 million people in Nigeria alone that suffer from chronic halitosis. That doesn’t include anyone who only suffers from it occasionally.
Bad breath has become an epidemic that affects both young and old, but could be especially devastating to teens and pre-teens as they cope with a whole array of pre-adolescent problems.
What causes bad breath can be attributed to a wide variety of underlying issues including, poor oral hygiene, gingivitis, bleeding gums, dry mouth, periodontal disease, tooth decay, or one of many other health related problems including sinus infections, diabetes, and even cancer patients undergoing treatments.
