You can hide your eyebags behind those ginormous shades, your skin imperfections underneath layers of make up, but unless you plan on giving everyone the silent treatment you can never hide bad breath.

Bad breath may be the easiest to get rid off, just gargle or spray some mouthwash and its gone—but the effects may just be temporary.

First, here’s a couple of ways to check if you have bad breath according to

Now make sure you do this in private unless you want to get strange and disgusted looks from those around you. Also try not to do this just after you’ve brushed your teeth, used mouthwash or ate something minty as you’d just be fooling yourself. Gather just a bit of saliva and lick (DON’T DROOL!) the inside of your wrist–yep the same place you spray on cologne (also dont do this if you’ve sprayed cologne!). Wait for 5 to 10 seconds when your saliva has dried and smell. This is more or less how your breath smells like when you are talking to people. If it doesn’t smell terrible then your breath may not be too bad but if you immediately get a bit nauseous or feel like throwing up–then you might need to visit your dentist and improve on your dental hygiene.


Another discreet way to self-check your breath is to cover your mouth and nose with both of your hands. Form a cup so that the air you breathe out through your mouth has nowhere to go but into your nose.


Breathe out, slowly, from your mouth, and quickly inhale the hot breath through your nose. If you feel suffocated and nauseous again, find some mouthwash and head over to your dentist.

Still unconvinced if your breath smells okay? Then it might be time to ask a “second opinion,” and know who your friends really are. 

Dont go breathing in his/or her face and ask if it smells, but rather discretely say “I’m worried that my breath might smell bad, but I can’t really tell. This is embarrassing, but have you noticed anything?”


Ask permission first–Then breathe out!

If they say No! Then success all those flossing and brushing is working! But if they faint then its really time to face your fears—and go to the dentist.

Going to the dentist can be quite scary,  after all, who’d want to have someone shove metal objects inside your mouth and reading disaster stories about unsanitary practices isn’t  at all reassuring. This is the reason why J&T Dental Trading recently held a seminar to update dentists and dental practitioners practice about the latest in dental care and make their clinics more inviting for patients.
