5 WAYS TO TEST YOURSELF FOR BAD BREATH (HALITOSIS)


I do not need to over-stress the fact that Mouth Odor can be very embarrassing yet most people have halitosis (Mouth odour) and do not even know they have it. Firstly i'll like you to understand that mouth odor (halitosis) can be caused by various reasons

Ranging from diet to health Issues. But what I will be discussing today is How to know if you have mouth Odor.
I'll be starting from the most common method to more accurate methods.




The Wrist Test :
  • slightly lick the inside of your wrist.
  • wait for 5-10.seconds.
  • smell it.
**The worse the smell the fouler your breath is likely to smell.


The Cup Test:
  • Get a clean odourless cup or a container of some sort that can cover your nose and mouth simultaneously.
  • Press the cup slightly tight against your mouth and breathe into it.
  • You should be able to smell your breath that way.
**The worse the smell the fouler your breath is likely to smell.
NB: You can perform the above tests with your palm too.


Spoon Test:
  • Get a teaspoon
  • Turn it upside down and use it to scrape the back of your tongue (be careful not to injure yourself).
  • Smell the whitish substance on the spoon.
**The worse the smell the fouler your breath is likely to smell.


Ask Someone:
This is the most direct and effective way to know if you have bad breath. If you don't feel comfortable asking an adult you can try asking a little child. They'll be more truthful in their answers.


Visit a Dentist:
Get an appointment with a dentist and have yourself tested. This is by far the most efficient means to know if you have bad breath. A dentist is specifically trained for this and should be able to tell you if you have bad breath, diagnose the likely cause and also proffer a solution.
