5 Ways to know you have bad breath
- Testing with cotton
Another way to test is to with a piece of cotton gauze. Use some to wipe the back of the tongue and sniff it. If it smells, then your breath smells. You may also see a yellow colored stain which is an indicator of higher than normal production of sulfide.
2. Testing with dental floss
You can find out if your breath is fresh using dental floss. Use some in between the teeth at the back which is where food particles are most likely to get caught. Smell the floss and you will get an idea of the odor others get when you speak.
You can also be able to tell whether your breath is stale by licking the inside of the wrist, leaving this to dry for a minute and sniffing. The inner wrist is not constantly handling things so it can give you a true reading of your breath. You can also do this on the back of your hand. It works because if you have halitosis, sulphur salts will be transferred from your tongue to your skin.
Another pointer to bad breath is a bad taste in your mouth. Your may not be able to smell your breath by cupping your hand to your noise and smelling it but you can certainly taste it. You may notice an odor after a heavily spiced meal or after taking an alcoholic or sugary drink. Brushing and a swirl of mouthwash usually takes care of incidental causes of halitosis.
Some people try to get a whiff of their breath by cupping the hand to the nose and sniffing. This only gives you the smell of your hand. The human body tends to adopt so that you can smell other beings and things apart from yourself so you cannot an odor just by breathing into your hand.
