Bad Breath Can Mean Poor Oral Health

Bad Breath Can Mean Poor Oral Health

Although periodontal diseases have been traditionally associated with halitosis (persistent bad breath), individuals with healthy looking oral tissues can suffer from severe halitosis. The odor of the breath is like that of someone with severe periodontal disease.

Even the most meticulous brushing and flossing will not get rid of bad breath and periodontal disease. In fact, many bad breath sufferers have healthy looking mouths and impeccable oral care habits.

Research shows that 75% of the population suffers from some form of periodontal disease, and about 50% from halitosis or a bad taste problem. Both are evidence of an oral infection. So, it’s no surprise that millions of dollars are spent annually over-the-counter rinses and breath products that only briefly mask odors without eliminating the underlying infection – oral bacteria that are persistent, resistant and resilient.

The OraVital® System is a unique, non-surgical oral treatment that successfully removes the problem-causing bacteria.
