Halitosis: A Severe Social Stigma
Halitosis is a subjective perception after smelling someone’s breath. It can be pleasant, unpleasant or even disturbing. It can lead to personal discomfort and social embarrassment and remains one of the biggest taboos in the society. There is no single cause that attributes to development of halitosis. In addition, there is no universal objective method for the diagnosis of a halitosis patient. The dental hygienist, dentist, and periodontist are the most appropriate professionals to diagnose and treat this condition.
