I have always been self-conscious that other people were offering me gum and mint because I had bad breath and I also was concerned that people would cover their nose because of my bad breath.  Dr. Ohanessian consulted me that based on my specifics I did not have an abnormal condition and  that what I felt about other people's reaction was not necessarily tied up to my breath quality.  This was comforting and the treatments have been very reassuring and satisfactory.

I've been concerned about my bad breath and dating.  The Doctor took his time to explain many things and comforted me that I only have normal bad breath and all it needs is treatments and some dental work.  I'm very happy with the treatments and the needed dental work.

Thanks

What are the 4 essentials we cannot leave home without, be without in the car or in the office or be without on a date?

1. Keys

2. Wallet

3. Phone

4. Gums, mints, and other breath fresheners

This is how important and integral our breath quality is to the quality of our daily lives.  Unfortunately up to now in reference to #4 our only option was to use breath fresheners such as gums and mints and mouthwash to cover up our bad breath.  Well now we can all experience what not having bad breath versus covering up could be like.  At Bad Breath Institute we remove bad breath first.

We have all experienced a loved one, a friend or a co-worker having bad breath. The dilemma is how to tell these individuals about their condition without angering them, embarrassing them or making them defensive.

 

Diplomacy is always a good strategy.  A hint of breath freshener could be a good start.  For example if in person, you can offer the individual a stick of gum or some mint and use that action as an excuse to open up discussion about the subject.  You can say that you have become more self-conscious about your breath as sometimes you felt you were not aware of the possibility of having bad breath.  You can give a reason that one of your friends hinted you at one occasion after you had lunch that contained onions.  Hence, you can ask the individual if by any chance he/she had lunch with onions!  The blame of bad breath gets passed onto the “onion” while the opportunity for you has now opened up to recommend the individual to get his bad breath checked out and treated.

 

Another means of hinting someone about their bad breath is simply sending them a hint electronically to get their attention.  We have implemented the “Send a hint” function on our website specifically for this purpose.  Certain individuals will respond better to a subtle hint, in the privacy of their time and relate to the hint, therefore seeking professional assistance.

 

If all else fails and it is a matter of your relationship with the person or else… just come out and say it straight out!

Beautiful teeth are a sign of health and youth.  It gives a person self confidence and a willingness to smile more often which reflects positively on first impressions.

 

Just as bad breath is a nuisance and can affect ones self confidence, so do teeth that are yellow, malaligned and stained.

 

This is not only true socially but generally goes hand-in-hand with oral health.  Proper alignment and correctly contoured teeth not only look beautiful but can naturally contribute to less food and bacterial entrapment between teeth leading to lower number of cavities (which are caused by bacteria) as well as less bad breath.

 

This is why general and cosmetic dentistry is an integral part of ones goals to reduce bad breath. 

Bad Breath and Dating

With the recent increase in online dating, many who meet for the first time attempt to have their best presentation during this initial encounter.  The checklist for this exciting rendezvous includes wallet, keys, perfume, make up as well as gums, mints and other breath fresheners.

 

A 5,000 member survey by match.com showed, when dating, more people are concerned about having fresh breath than stylish clothes, sexy fragrance and great hair…combined!

 

The nuisance in trying to have fresh breath is to continuously try to refresh ones breath with temporary breath fresheners before, during and after a date.  The reason for this is that the common approach to having fresh and clean breath is to continuously cover up bad breath.  This is why breath fresheners will have to be consumed continuously.  This continuous consumption is not only annoying but also can get very expensive.

 

An example of this activity which I discuss with my patients is regarding bathing and body hygiene.  When we feel dirty, we take off our old clothes, take a shower, put new clothes on and then use perfumes to enhance our smell.  We do not continuously put perfume on many days old clothing without bathing!

 

Yet this is exactly what we have been conditioned to do when it comes to our mouth and bad breath.  We are continuously covering up bad breath without first treating it.  Our mouth needs a bath too!  This is why it is important to first treat bad breath in order to achieve longer lasting fresh breath.

 

Treating bad breath should be a part of our daily regimen.  Just as brushing teeth and getting professional teeth cleaning, your bad breath can be treated and controlled.  This is why I recommend to my patients to have a professional treatment done before a special occasion, a wedding, a job interview or an exciting date. 

 

Your attention will be shifted to enjoying this special event instead of worrying if your breath smells.

Bad Breath & Sales-Marketing Jobs

Many in the fields of Sales and marketing such as auto, real estate and mortgage, department store and retails clerks among other sales positions, are continuously speaking and communicating verbally with clients throughout the day.  I myself as a dentist in close proximity with patients and continuously consulting clients know the nuisance of dry mouth leading to a tired and heavy breath.  As the day goes on the bad breath gets heavier and our self-consciousness about the quality of our bad breath rises.  Instead of focusing on our jobs we start to pucker our lips, increase our distance from others or keep popping mints to keep the bad breath from getting to our clients.

 

With proper understanding of how bad breath works, these situations can be controlled much easier. 

 

First, one must control the level of bacteria that causes bad breath.  Once the bacteria are brought under control, the heavy and tired feeling of our mouth will subside significantly.  Combining such professional and at home treatments with proper hydration and nutritional snacking throughout the day will assist the talking sales person to have a lighter feeling mouth and a cleaner feeling breath.

 

Brushing and oral hygiene after every meal during work hours will significantly increase the effectiveness of a longer lasting fresh and clean breath as well.

 

Properly addressing bad breath could easily be implemented in our daily routines as a normal grooming and hygiene regimen such as hand washing.
