bad breath can be an embarrassing problem in any situation. However, a new poll has found that many people allow their feelings of insecurity to interfere with their desire to seek treatment for their oral health problems.

A UK-based research firm found that as much as 33 percent of the British population avoids visiting a doctor because they are ashamed of their condition, according to London's Mirror. halitosis was the most common reason given for feelings of embarrassment.

While it is understandable for individuals to feel ashamed of their personal hygiene problems, the report's authors said that most healthcare providers have likely seen worse, and that their job is to provide services without judging.

"It's difficult not to be self-conscious, but doctors are likely to have seen something similar," they wrote.

Individuals who are letting their feelings of embarrassment interfere with their desire to seek care may benefit from taking steps to fix their halitosis problems. Specialty breath freshening products may help eliminate the problem.
