Does your breath smell bad?
According to the Dental School of New York all people have some amount of bad breath. Most people cannot smell their own bad breath. 80 - 90 percent of bad breath is caused by the bacteria (Solobacterium moorei) that lives on the top of the tongue and produces sulfur containing compounds that smell. You may be able to smell your own breath. Log on to http://www.orabrush.com where there are instrucitons to testing your own bad breath. To cover up bad breath you may use mints, gums or mouthwash, however, these products do nothing to cure bad breath. To cure bad breath you must remove the cause of bad breath, the bacteria. Good oral hygiene will control bad breath. Brush and floss the teeth and then clean the top of the tongue with a high quality tongue cleaner (not a scraper).
