Ways To Eliminate Bad Breath

Jun 28, 2008
It is horrible to find oneself in a close conversation with someone and become suddenly aware that the person they are talking to has horrible smelling breath. It can almost make someone feel nauseous to continue the conversation and it is almost impossible not to make a facial expression that communicates disgust.

Involuntary responses are almost drawn out by the putrid odour. This kind of situation is very difficult to deal with, and most people desire to get rid of this insulting odour, as soon as possible. Telling someone they have bad breath can be embarrassing for both people, but it is essential that the issue be dealt with both personally and as a friend, relative or co-worker.

Personal Responsibility

So what can be done about bad breath? First of all, each and every person has a responsibility to take good care of their teeth and perform good oral hygiene that will help prevent bad breath. It is a common courtesy to make sure that others do not have to suffer with a person's laziness and lack of personal care. People who know that they have a problem with foul breath should recognize the fact and take care of the problem to the best of their ability. If they can not handle the problem on their own they should seek professional help of the dentist and doctor.

Tell Others

When a person is faced with speaking or dealing with another person who has bad breath it is important to address the situation rather than get away from it. Sometimes a person has a medical problem that causes them to have bad breath and they are completely unaware of the odour in their mouth or the medical problem. By telling someone they have bad breath a person can be saving another person's life. Even though this may be a difficult conversation to initiate it is important.

One easy way to address the situation is to offer the person a piece of gum or a mint and gently tell them that they may need to see a physician to discover what their problem is. Or a person can bring up the subject of bad breath and talk about its seriousness and then offer the mint or gum. This should help most people understand they have a problem. Some people will require a very direct statement telling them they have bad breath and need to do something about it. All though this is a hard thing to do it is something that needs to be done.
