What Should I Do for Bad Breath?

Bad breath (halitosis) can be unpleasant and embarrassing. While many of us may not realize we have bad breath, but it happens to everyone from time to time, especially in the morning.

There are various reasons, but in healthy people the major reason is due to microbial action on the tongue, especially the back of the tongue. Some studies have shown that simply brushing the tongue reduced bad breath by as much as 70 percent.
