Bad breath can signify something more

xray of skull and brain - TheraBreath has been clinically tested to fight bad breath, halitosis, dry mouth, tonsil stones, canker sores, sour bitter metallic tastes, cavities, and unsightly gums.

When is bad breath its own condition, and when does it indicate something more? It all depends on a person's physiological condition. An article at the independent news website The Faster Times provides an example.

The post, which took the form of a hypothetical case report, involved a man who avoided the dentists due to a fear of sharp instruments and the nagging notion that he has chronic bad breath. After finally making an appointment for a cavity, he had the tooth extracted. The news source said that three weeks later, the man suffered from paralysis of half of his body, along with a high fever.

While the article does not yet reveal the cause of the apparent stroke - the point, after all, is to try to figure it out yourself - it does note that halitosis can prevent people from seeking dental attention early.

Halitosis is commonly a condition all its own, one that can be minimized by using a tongue scraper or a specialty breath freshening rinse that neutralizes odor.

According to the Mayo Clinic, halitosis can be a symptom of a number of conditions, including acid reflux, diabetes or ketoacidosis, as well as a side effect of certain medications.
