Halitosis/bad breath/oral malodor has become a concern among youngsters and adults in today’s world. The epidemiological research on halitosis is inadequate since it is still a considerable but underrated taboo. Halitosis is still considered an underrated research topic among various researchers. Due to the multi origin nature of halitosis, each individual needs to be treated differently based on the complexity of halitosis. A multidisciplinary team consists of dentist, an ENT specialist, nutritionist, gastroenterologist and clinical psychologist is needed to provide better treatment approaches.
