As a long time sufferer of bad breath (halitosis) I can still
remember the day my girlfriend told me I had puppy breath. As
affectionate as that sounds I knew what she really meant was
that I had bad breath. Being somewhat shy in the first place,
this only compounded my lack of confidence and made me totally
aware of my breath problem from that day on.
Rarely was there a date from then on that I didn't have a
supply of mints, gum, or some other type of breath altering
products available to me. My bad breath was consuming me
during my dates with my girlfriend or being in close contact
with anyone else for that matter.
If you are one of the millions of sufferers of chronic bad
breath then I'm sure you can relate to me. And I'm not alone.
According to the ADA, it is estimated that there are over 27
million people in the United States alone that suffer from
chronic halitosis. That doesn't include anyone who only suffers
from it occasionally.
Bad breath has become an epidemic that affects both young and
old, but could be especially devastating to teens and pre-teens
as they cope with a whole array of pre-adolescent problems.
What causes bad breath can be attributed to a whole array of
underlying issues including poor oral hygiene, gingivitis,
bleeding gums, dry mouth, periodontal disease, tooth decay, or
one of many other health related problems including sinus
infections, diabetes, and even cancer treatments.
If you're like me then you probably have been trying to just
mask the symptoms all these years as you could never find a
permanent solution to eliminate the symptoms that have been
causing it. But doing just that may be adding to the problem
by letting the underlying problem keep compounding.
But did you know that you can effectively treat bad breath and
cure it naturally and fast? There are some excellent products
online that can give you the resources to combat the symptoms
and eliminate your problem in as little as a few days. So if
you're tired of being embarrassed by bad breath and what to do
about it then you owe it to yourself to investigate alternative
methods in helping you cure this self-conscience robbing problem.
