1. To whom is the remote treatment for bad breath intended for? (our patients)

Our bad breath treatment is for any person having problems related to bad breath, dry mouth or bad taste in their mouths. Our speciality are persons who have halitosis despite having good oral hygiene (bad breath afther brushing, regular use of mouthwashes, tongue cleaner, dental floss), his/her dentist has told them that their mouths are healthy, to refrain from eating smelly food, and apparently that they do not suffer from any disease which is the underlying cause of bad breath.

2. Why do I have bad breath if I have a thorough oral hygiene? (bad breath)

Although the vast majority of people think that halitosis or bad breath can only be the result of poor hygiene (or a stomach problem), the truth is that there are over 80 causes of bad breath and most are not related to the mouth. This is why it is not surprising that many people continue to have bad breath although with good oral hygiene and do not suffer from dental or stomach problems.

Therefore, after an exhaustive research of over 5 years, the team headed by Dr. Nunes has developed the Arthyaga® protocol in order to determine what is the reason which causes of bad breath in the patient (through specific breath molecular analysis tests) and to provide an individual bad breath solution focused on the causes of bad breath (undisguised).
