Ok, can we talk about breath?
Why is it in the past year or so I have met so many people that have bad breath.
I even have some close friends where I'm talking have breath that could kill a horse.
These are regular people that take pretty good care of themselves and lead a pretty normal life.
I'm not talking the kind of breath like you had too much garlic or ate a bad combo of foods. I'm talking you haven't been going to the dentist lately and or not taking good care of your mouth. The kind of breath that I think when you have it, you don't realize how bad it is until somebody tells you because you just get use to it. I don't know, but I've have had to either grin and bare some really bad breath moments or duck and avoid an oncoming kiss or hug because of it.
I know gum disease is common and certain meds, even just getting older can be the cause of this issue.
I can't imagine most of these people don't even realize they smell. But you would think, especially if you have a spouse or other loved one they would tell you.
I at least brush my teeth twice a day with my Sonicare, scrape my tongue and use mouthwash each time.
I can't say my breath is always as minty fresh, but I sure am conscious of my oral hygiene.
Actually hubby and I have a pact when either one of us has some type of bad odor, be it oral or body we let each other know. (of course, in the best possible way)
And, yes we've had to do that on occasion.
I'm just saying, why do people neglect their personal needs.
This is not a typical post for me but I guess I'm all over the board on what I post about anyways. huh?
