Robots Helping Out Dentists

Friday, December 4th, 2009

In Palm Beach County, FL, the health department is giving local dentists a new tool to help others, called the “Sim Man“. It may not be an actual human, but dentists can use it to simulate real life scenarios and even help save lives.

People can use it to play different medical roles and have the “Sim” character function as if it was a real patient. The robot can mimic functions of a real patient with the breathing and blood pressure, so it can be monitored and cared for properly.   The exercise is believed to aid medical professionals in reacting properly in actual crises.  One thing the robot could be lacking from a real human, though, is bad breath.

Dr. Katz Did Not Sleep with Tiger Woods

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

This just in– Tiger Woods did NOT sleep with Dr. Katz! Our very own ‘Bad Breath Guru’ is not part of the scandal. We just wanted to clarify this since people (including Rachel Uchitel, Jaimee Grubbs, and Kalika Moquin) have been coming out of the woodwork in the past week claiming that they had an affair with Tiger Woods. We wonder if any of the women Tiger Woods had been involved with had morning breath. Maybe his wife Elin Nordegren had bad breath, causing him to stray. Maybe that’s why Tiger yells “FORE!” when he’s on the golf course, because he had four women. (well he did at the time of the original writing… things have obviously gotten much worse since).

Dr. Katz never has morning breath because he uses TheraBreath right before bedtime. That’s the reason why he’s so desirable. But guess what? He’s been loyal to his wife of 34 years.

Quick Bad Breath Tips When You’re Out

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

bad breath
Do you want to get rid of your smelly breath? Read and try some of the following tips. Banish bad breath today.

1. Keep hydrated with water. Bad breath can be caused by dry mouth.
2. Gargle with TheraBreath Oral Rinse. This can be a long-lasting halitosis cure.
3. Have a meal that comes with ginger, basil, parsley, or mint leaves.
4. Try eating a Waldorf salad with extra apple. Apples can help freshen your breath and remove pieces of food stuck between your teeth.
5. A LITTLE bit of whiskey can help kill the bad breath-causing bacteria on your teeth and mask small amounts of malodor. However, do not have too much, since breath worsens with the more alcohol consumed.
6. Scrape your tongue! Sometimes you might have a white coating on your tongue, particularly if you have a thrush infection. If you’re out and about, you could sneak off with a spoon to scrape your tongue if you do not have a tongue scraper available.
7. Rinsing your mouth with water can also help combat halitosis. You can also use a paper towel to rub your teeth.
