Having bad breath can be a symptom of a host of oral health problems like severe tooth decay, infections in the mouth, and gum disease. In other cases, bad breath can just be the result of a garlic-heavy lunch. Regardless, having odor-free breath is essential in our day-to-day social interactions with others. Have you ever wondered if your breath smelled and had no way to check? Although many people employ the strategy of breathing into their cupped hands to check, this method is actually ineffective. Our bodies are all individually acclimated to our own scents, and thus it is difficult to notice any changes in the smell of our breath.
Luckily, there are other ways you can quickly check the smell of your own breath.
