Is bad breath making you depressed?

Good Riddance to Bad Breath – Infographic

Bad breath is more than just an inconvenience. It can affect you in so many ways socially and professionally, often leading to depression. For example, it could prevent you from getting a job, with 68% of employers admitting that they would be discouraged from hiring a candidate who turned up for an interview with halitosis. How galling would it be to miss out on an ideal job for which you’re fully qualified and possess all the right attributes simply because of foul-smelling breath? It would be incredibly galling, no doubt, but the employer sees someone who is negligent about personal hygiene and construes that as a lack of interest or respect.

That’s why the smell of your breath matters so greatly. It can be difficult to know if you have bad breath, as your friends and family would probably be too polite to tell you for fear of causing offence, so you may need to rely on your own judgement. If you don’t brush your teeth adequately, you binge on strong-smelling food and drink or you smoke, your breath is almost certainly going to be malodorous.

We hope that this infographic from Dervla Leavy Dental Care provides some useful new information on halitosis and that you can take something from it so you can say good riddance to bad breath. Any prospective employer would most likely appreciate it!
