Halitosis (bad breath) is a condition where an extremely unpleasant odor is noticed on the exhaled breath. Concern and embarrassment about halitosis is estimated to be the 3rd most frequent reason for patients to seek dental care, followwing tooth decay and gum disease.
Not all who think they have halitosis actually have a genuine problem. Of those who feel they have halitosis, 5‑72% have been reported to have no genuine halitosis when professionally examined. Of those who have genuine halitosis, often the odor is caused by bacteria present below the gumline and on the back of the tongue. The remaining 10% is accounted for by many different conditions, including disorders in the nasal cavity, sinuses, throat, lungs, esophagus,
stomach or elsewhere. Tonsilloliths may also be a possible cause of halitosis.
