The human mouth is not a clean environment. There are viruses, fungi, and possibly more than 1,000 bacteria. These microbes can camp in gaps between the gums and teeth and sometimes cause serious oral problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. These problems may also cause bad breath, so one of the ways to quickly check your oral health is to smell your breath.

Of course, it's hard to be precise enough to just smell with your own nose, but a Silicon Valley startup called Breathometer claims to solve the problem. The Mint they developed can check your mouth for problems with your breath.

Mint is an FDA-approved type of medical device that looks like a giant mint box with a replaceable mouthpiece. It can use Bluetooth to synchronize data with supporting applications and let you know and improve your oral health through your smartphone.

There are many causes of bad breath, including food residues and gastrointestinal disorders. But what Mint tests is only a "volatile sulfur compound," which will make your mouth feel like a rotten cabbage and rotten eggs.

Scientists have long linked these sulphides to periodontitis. This is a disease that affects people over the age of 30. Although the specific cause of the disease is not clear, the appearance is the accumulation of bacteria between the gums and teeth.

The confrontation between these bacteria and the body's immune system can cause the gums to swell, bleed and shrink. In the end, periodontitis destroys the bones and gingival tissues that act as fixed teeth.

The use of Mint is very simple. You only need to wait for 30 seconds to close your mouth - so that harmful gases can accumulate - and then just bite your mouthpiece.

But it's worth noting that you don't really need to blow Mint. It takes an air sample from your mouth and uses an internal electrochemical sensor to detect sulfur molecules.

Subsequently, the measured data will be used to score the oral health, A means that everything is normal, F means you need to see a dentist.

At the same time, Mint's application will also provide suggestions for improving the condition of the mouth. If your oral problems are not serious, you may be able to improve your oral health by following good hygiene/ eating habits.

Mint sells for $99.99 (approximately RMB 688) and is currently on sale at the official website. (Author: Rachel Becker, the compiler: Eskimo)
