Bad Breath And What You Can Do About It

Jul 16, 2008
Have you ever found yourself in a close conversation with someone and become suddenly aware that the person you were talking to has atrocious smelling breath. It can make you feel nauseous to continue the conversation and is impossible not to make a expression that communicates disgust.

The foul smelling odor draws out almost involuntary responses.This is a very delicate position to deal with and many want to simply get away from the offensive odor as quickly as possible. Bad breath is especially difficult for others to deal with but it is important that it is dealt with on all levels both personally and as a friend, relative or coworker of a person with the problem.

Responsibility Belongs To All

So what can we do about the problem of bad breath? Firstly, each and every person has the responsibility to take good care of their teeth. Performing good oral hygiene will help reduce the chances of bad breath and is a common courtesy so that others do not have to suffer from an individuals laziness and lack of personal care. People who know that they have trouble with putrid breath should acknowledge 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.

Consult With 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 odor in their mouth or the medical problem. By telling someone they have bad breath a person can be saving another persons 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.
