In brief: People stay away :-(

Halitosis is defined as unpleasant and characteristic odor from the mouth when you exhale.
Most of the time people that care about you, or family member will approach you and tell you about your "problem" .Many patients tel me that they were offered gum by their coworkers....It is caused by millions of odor producing bacteria in your mouth, that is almost impossible to remove by brushing-flossing.

In brief: Bad breath

Halitosis is a term used to describe noticeably unpleasant odors exhaled in breathing.
Halitosis is estimated to be the third most frequent reason for seeking dental aid, following tooth decay and periodontal disease.
