Patients who seek voluntarily to correct dental disease such as cavities, gum disease or even misaligned and discolored teeth usually have a much higher self-confidence levels than patients who only go to the dentists out of necessity or pain associated with a tooth or a dental condition.

 

A bright smile, a nicely aligned dentition and a fresher breath can significantly improve one’s personal confidence as well as social acceptance.

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.

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.

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.
