A Self-Test For Bad Breath

We can’t smell our own bad breath but people we associate with can! The degree of bad breath depends mainly on oral dryness and amount of residual toxins in the mouth.

The simplest method to check whether you have bad breath or not, is to lick the back of your wrist and allow the saliva to dry for some time and smell the area.

Another easy way is to lightly scrape the back of the tongue with an inverted spoon or a piece of dental floss, and to test for the smell of the dried residue.

You may need to ask your spouse to smell your breath and give you a proper opinion.

Of late, highly reliable home tests are made available which test for the presence of polyamines and sulfur compounds on tongue swabs. You may need to test several times in a day to arrive at an average result.
