Halitosis Program

Halitosis Elimination Program (HELP)

An estimated 65% of Americans have bad breath.  Over forty million Americans have "chronic halitosis," which is persistent bad breath.  People are conscious of their bad breath and want to live free from this  ailment. Bad breath doesn’t cause any physical ailment. It causes social ailment for the people. Those with bad breath problems have lower self-esteem, avoid social situations, and put off important conversations because of it.

While there are some medical conditions and medications which contribute to halitosis, research has shown that 90% of halitosis cases are oral in orgin.  Up until now, there has been no way to treat halitosis - only to cover it up with mouthwashes and mints.  However, new research have enabled us to successfully treat this problem.
