Bad breath:
A common condition


If you sometimes suffer from “not-so-fresh” breath, you’re not alone. Roughly one in three adults suffer from chronic bad breath, or halitosis.

What causes bad breath? How can you prevent and treat it? Learn why the most common breath freshening products only mask the problem and how solutions from Philips Sonicare address bad breath in the long term.

Listen to your tongue
It's saying more than you think


Your tongue’s surface is porous, with deep grooves where bacteria settle and produce odor-causing gases. That’s why cleaning the tongue is essential to targeting bad breath in the long run.

Philips Sonicare


Philips Sonicare TongueCare+ pairs sonic technology and the antibacterial strength of Philips Sonicare BreathRx Tongue Spray. The brush contours to the tongue to clean away debris, while the spray kills bad breath bacteria.
