Bad breath, medically known as halitosis, has been affecting mankind for ages. People have been searching for an effective treatment of this problem. Usually, people with halitosis are unaware of their bad breath until a friend or family member tells them about it. Many causative factors for bad breath have been recognized.
 
In most cases, food particles trapped between the teeth are what causes bad breath. Plaque formation over the teeth harbors bacteria responsible for halitosis. Dental caries or gingivitis (swelling of gums) can also be a cause of bad breath. Proper treatment of dental disorders by a specialist dentist is essential to cure bad breath. Treatment of dental caries or tartar may prove to be a cure of the bad breath.

Cinnamon is a natural cure to halitosis. Chewing cinnamon or taking cinnamon tea is a healthy natural treatment of halitosis.  
 
Mint is one of the commonly used halitosis remedies. Chewing of natural mint leaves or a mint pill or gum is beneficial in curing halitosis.
