Bad breath - also known as halitosis or mouth odour - is a very common human condition, but still isn't very well understood by many doctors and dentists although more than half of us suffer from some form of it.
Some of the less serious, temporary or transient kinds of bad breath can be controlled by antimicrobial mouthwashes, a healthy diet and consistently good oral hygiene.
The more persistent and chronic forms of this condition are almost always oral infections that are resistant to drugstore mouthwashes and require specialized treatment. That's where we can help!
OraVital Halitosis Treatment
The OraVital® System is a revolutionary approach to the successful treatment of oral infections that include periodontal disease and bad breath. OraVital Clinics locate and treat the specific, underlying cause of the infection, rather than just the symptoms which are the result of the infection. Causes are most often of bacterial origin, but lack of nutrients and certain systemic conditions can increase the extent of the infection. OraVital treatment is completely safe, easy, and non-invasive.
No two people are exactly alike, so it makes sense that successful treatment means customised solutions. The OraVital System determines the exact cause of your condition using industry-leading microbiology tests, then provides the most effective individualized treatment for you based on your personal test results. Our uniquely successful science-based treatments have been developed over more than 20 years of careful research, and include antibiotic rinses that target the specific bacteria causing breath odour. Antibiotics in rinse form can be much more powerful than is possible with antibiotic pills, because when you "rinse and spit" there is no interaction with the body's internal systems (and no side effects). Once the oral infection is under control, our special maintenance rinses keep the mouth healthy and prevent re-infection.
OraVital clinicians will treat you with respect and compassion, and will guide you through your treatment routine so that you can get on with your life.
Don't just guess at what is happening in your mouth! Ask your dentist or dental hygienist to give you a screening test for aggressive oral bacteria.

The Fresh Breath Clinic
The Fresh Breath Clinic began operation in 1993 as an assessment and treatment centre for bad breath and bad taste problems. When my Halitosis Assessment Clinic (HAC) at the University of Toronto closed in the spring of that year, many former clients were left without a clinical facility to treat their problem. The idea for the Fresh Breath Clinic was developed by myself and Dr. Julian Geller, to make available an opportunity for those individuals who had been clients at the HAC as well as to provide a clinical setting for people who were seeking oral malodour treatment.
From the fall of 1993 to February 2008, the Fresh Breath Clinic operated as a unique facility, totally devoted to the treatment of bad breath. It earned a track record of the highest calibre. The clinic was dynamic in its approach to the assessment and treatment of bad breath conditions, developing and incorporating new methods.
One of the greatest rewards of this clinical operation was the satisfaction that the assessment and treatment lead to many successes. Changes in the image and ego state of many clients were at times quite dramatic. This helped to offset some of the frustrations when, with all our skills and knowledge, we sometimes could not fully address the problems presented to us. Bad breath is at times a difficult condition to understand and to treat.
After 15 years of practice, the Fresh Breath Clinic is no longer in operation. We want to thank all those individuals who took a chance on us and came for treatment - thousands of clients from more than 30 countries. It is your information about the negative impact of bad breath on the individual and your willingness to work through our system that has helped establish the assessment and treatment that we have today.
Many of you have chosen to attend our OraVital clinics and we thank you for showing confidence in our system. OraVital Certified dental clinics provide a full range of dental services in addition to treatment of breath odours and other oral infections such as gum disease, bleeding gums, periodontitis and peri-implantitis.
