[Question] ||| "What really is bad breath?

[Answer] ||| "The medical term for bad breath is halitosis.  Why it happens has to do with food particles that are stuck between the teeth. 

Without frequent brushing and flossing, these particles go through a digestive-like process not unlike the food that actually was swallowed.  The particles break down by salivary enzymes, bacteria come along, and malodorous sulphur compounds are created. 

The cure?  Frequent brushing and flossing and routine professional dental cleanings."
