Did you know that most people are unaware of the fact that they have bad breath. Recent studies have estimated that 50% of the American population actually suffer from halitosis (bad breath).
Below is a list of tests that you can utilize to assess the odor of your breath:
Ask someone you trust. Requesting someone to evaluate your breath is the easiest and quickest way to asses your breath odor.
Lick your wrist. Allow the saliva to dry, then smell your wrist. If you smell a foul odor, then it is likely that you suffer from bad breath.
Use gauze. Rub the piece of gauze on to your tongue then smell the gauze. Also check the gauze for yellow or discolored debris.
Check for coating on your tongue that is white or yellow.
Floss between the furthest back molars in your teeth. The odor of the floss will likely determine the odor of your breath.
