Doctor :   Defeating Halitosis Breath Safely
Our heads contain soft tissues, bone, nerves, vessels and more - so we should treat them like eggs, not armored cars.
Here are two things to avoid when self-treating your halitosis: 1. Hydrogen peroxide, or H2O2, in household form (about 3 percent concentration) should NOT be gargled, ingested, inhaled or even touched for long periods, no matter what alternative cure websites say about combating halitosis breath. The Center for Disease Control labels it toxic because it irritates soft tissues. Toothpastes and teeth whitening strips containing peroxide are relatively safe, if not overused.
2. Mints and gums only provide temporary relief from bad breath halitosis and many of them come loaded with sugar. Letting these bounce around in your mouth promotes tooth decay. Watch out for syrupy cough drops too, if you're battling sinusitis and subsequent bad breath. Go sugarless if you want to suppress your chronic halitosis long enough to ride a crowded train without offending.
Doctor :   No I do not contact ur email id
