Halitosis wasn’t considered an ailment until very recently. Thanks to listerine for that. But now that it is, and is also a serious turn off for everyone who has to be around several feet from you, you should consider taking a deep breath and asking a friend if you really have a smelly mouth. That’s because two things.
1. No one whose considerate enough would ever tell you that your breath smells bad. And even if they do they’ll put it in a very subtle manner – which will make you underestimate how bad it really is.
2. Secondly, you can almost never tell yourself that your breath smells bad because you’ve probably become so acclimatized to it that it doesn’t even smell odd to you any more.
Most times, parting ways with the bad breath problem off halitosis isn’t as hard as you think. You just have to spend more conscious time flossing, bushing and cleaning your tongue. If you’re missing any of these in your daily schedule, if not now, halitosis will strike some time soon. So, take care. Be prepared to hear it and ask a friend.
