While it’s not necessarily something anyone likes to admit, it’s most certainly possible to have bad breath without actually realizing it. With that said, it’s very possible that you have your suspicions about your breath. Perhaps someone recently backed away from you a bit, while you were speaking. Maybe you occasionally wonder to yourself, “Yuck, who’s got the terrible breath?” as you look around and realize you’re the only person in the room. With that said, we have some good news: Our Grand Prairie, TX team can help you feel a bit more confident about your suspicions and take action to ensure your mouth smells A-OK again!
Trust That Momentary Whiff!
As mentioned, you may suddenly get a quick whiff of bad breath and experience that disappointing but very real moment, during which you figure out that it might be you! While you may not want to believe it, we recommend that you do give into your suspicion (and follow your nose), as you schedule a checkup with our practice. While it may seem as though yucky breath is just an annoyance, it can actually point to oral health problems that require immediate care!
Ask Around (Preferably Amongst Close Friends)
You may not necessarily want to select any random stranger to let you know how your breath is smelling. However, a very close friend or relative may be willing to allow you to breathe in their direction, as they tell you whether or not you have bad breath. If the answer is yes, then it’s time to give your oral health some serious attention, as this may require professional care.
Come In For A Dental Checkup
Again, what you should do with that suspiciousness of yours is come in for a dental checkup with us. We might tell you that you simply need to lay off the garlic for a while. Or, we may determine that your breath is the result of something like tooth decay, missing out on dental cleanings, dental hygiene that could use sprucing up, dry mouth, or some other concern. The good news is that you will receive further advice from us to make things better, either by improving your general preventive care to reduce bacteria or by following through on necessary dental treatment!
