Halitosis is driven by bacteria living in your mouth

Your mouth is filled with bacteria, fungi, and viruses - collectively called the oral microbiome! Some of these microbes are beneficial, while others cause damage.

Halitosis (bad breath) is driven by specific types of bacteria that live in your mouth. These bacteria produce odorous volatile sulphur compounds (VSC).

The bacteria that cause halitosis influence your oral & overall health

Cognitive decline

Adverse pregnancy outcomes

Respiratory conditions

Cardiovascular diseases

Diabetes

Your oral microbiome is associated with everything from recurrent oral infections to conditions including diabetes, heart disease & gut inflammation.

Your mouth is the gateway & mirror to your health.
