Enamel is the outer layer of the tooth that envelops and protects the main portion of the tooth. The build-up of plaque bacteria and aging may contribute to weakened tooth enamel. Further, many common foods and drinks are acidic and can wear away enamel.

Bad breath or malodor, also known as halitosis, is breath containing an unpleasant odor. One culprit of bad breath is the millions of bacteria that live in the mouth. The mouth's warm, moist conditions make it an ideal environment for these bacteria to grow.
