Halitosis.com, a website dedicated to informing individuals about the causes of bad breath and possible solutions, allows individuals to anonymously recommend the site to anyone they know with chronic bad breath.
Prior to visiting the dentist, users may browse the website to help understand where halitosis originates, including the mouth, tongue, stomach and sites of dental work, and how to treat their symptoms.
The website also provides access to a directory of local dentists and oral health professionals who are experienced with halitosis treatment.
While some medications, tobacco products and respiratory tract infections may cause halitosis, consuming certain foods and lack of adequate dental care are the leading sources of bad breath.
The American Dental Association (ADA) explains that food molecules are absorbed into the bloodstream and are then transferred to the lungs, where they are expelled. Odors may persist until a person's body eliminates these compounds, but brushing, flossing and using mouthwash can temporarily mask odor.
Individuals who do not brush and floss their teeth regularly may experience bad breath due to rotting food particles left in their mouths.
The ADA recommends brushing twice a day, including the tongue, with a fluoride toothpaste, along with once daily flossing to avoid halitosis.
