Access to dental care can significantly increase a person's ability to fight bad breath. Dentists can provide their patients with strategies for improving their oral health and suggest products that may be able to help them end their breath problems.

However, a new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that there are millions of people who have no dental insurance and consequently rarely see a dentist. This can make it difficult for individuals with bad breath issues to resolve their oral care problems.

The numbers from the CDC show that individuals without employer-provided dental insurance are two to three times more likely to go without coverage. This results in 45 million people in the U.S. who do not have dental insurance.

Some dental health advocates recently lobbied congress to include measures in the healthcare reform bill that would increase access to dental care, but no such provisions were included in the final act that was passed by legislators.

A full 70 percent of individuals who do not receive dental insurance through their employer choose to forego the service, according to the figures from the CDC, leaving them susceptible to many oral health problems, including bad breath.

Americans who do not have dental insurance may consider using specialty oral care products that can help them to effectively get rid of bad breath.
