What is Halitosis?

Halitosis is the medical term for bad breath and there are many reasons why people might experience it.

Bad breath can be an embarrassing and unpleasant condition to suffer from, especially when it comes to interacting in social situations.

If you notice you have bad breath, it could also be a sign you are suffering from something more serious, like gum disease.

How parodontaxTM Can Help

Brushing twice daily with parodontaxTM toothpaste is 40% more effective at reducing bleeding gums than a sodium monofluorophosphate toothpaste.* By reducing the build-up of plaque along the gum line, parodontaxTM helps to keep gums healthy and teeth strong, and freshens breath.
