Mouthwash: A Tip for a Full Term Pregnancy

Monday, August 15th, 2011

Did you think that mouthwash was just for your oral health? A new study conducted suggests that rinsing with mouthwash while pregnant (for mothers that have gum disease) have more of a chance of carrying a baby to full term. This study was published by Reuters Health and states a fact that we often discuss: pregnant women with periodontal disease tend to have more premature babies than women with healthy gums. Why? We’re still not sure (even after this study) however, it is known that rinsing regularly with an alcohol-free mouthwash (like any of TheraBreath’s Oral Rinses) may cut a woman’s risk of delivering early by almost 75%! Isn’t it worth trying?

The research term in this study asked 71 pregnant women with gum disease to gargle twice daily with an alcohol-free mouthwash. The team then compared the number of preemies with a group of 155 pregnant women who also had gum disease that only gargled with water. For the water only group, one in five (34 moms total) gave birth early – meaning before 35 weeks of pregnancy. Of the 71  others that rinsed with mouthwash, only 4 moms gave birth early (about one in five).

The Latest TheraBreath Blog Reviews and Giveaways

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Please note: if you have already been lucky enough to win one of these bloggers giveaways, please refrain  from entering in order to allow others to win. Thank you!

Healthy Housewife Files has posted her TheraBreath Review. This busy wife and blogger was ideal for testing our products. In her review, she writes “As many of you know, I work as a special education teacher for preschool children with special needs. Specifically, my job is to work with them one-on-one on skills that they are struggling with. They come to my office and sit with me at my table while we work/play. This calls for very close contact. Those of you who have children or who are around them often know that they say whatever is on their minds. They will not hesitate to tell you, ‘Your breath stinks.’” Were our TheraBreath toothpaste, oral rinse and mouth wetting lozenges her savior or a waste of her time? You’ll have to go here to find out.

Kimberley Moments has posted her TheraBreath review and giveaway. She too tested out our toothpaste, lozenges and oral rinse. She had various opinions on our products, one she didn’t like very much at all and we appreciate her honesty. Luckily, someone else loved it. “My fiance Timothy used it and loved it. So it all is based on preferences. He was like ‘Babe i’m keeping the mouthwash K?’ I was like ‘Go at it!’” It’s great to see someone in her family did like it! She also was very sweet and shared our lozenges with her uncle.  “As soon as I was eating one I was thinking OMG, my uncle Nathan might benefit from these mints. What made me think of that is he is in remit-ion from cancer and having radiation in his mouth killed his saliva glands. His mouth gets super dooper dry. I gave him a handful to try and he was happy about them. They truly did help with his dry mouth while sucking on one.” We’re so glad that we could help Uncle Nathan with his dry mouth! Go here to read the entire review and to enter her TheraBreath giveaway too!

Something in Your Toothpaste Might be Giving You Canker Sores!

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Before we get too ahead of ourselves, do you know the difference between a cold sore and a canker sore? They are also known as mouth ulcers and cause that unbelievably annoying, pain that can affect your ability to eat, drink and just enjoy your daily life. Canker sores: occur only inside your mouth, they aren’t contagious or caused by a virus. Click here to see a chart display the differences and to learn even more about canker sores in-depth.

What causes a canker sore? Canker sores are typically caused by damage to the oral tissue in your mouth. This is often due to sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) – an all too common foaming agent that is an ingredient in most of the toothpastes that are on the market. But NOT TheraBreath toothpaste!

You hopefully already know that here at TheraBreath, we are big believers in only using the best quality ingredients and eliminate any unnecessary or potentially harmful chemicals, flavors or detergents.

So check the ingredients on you (and your children’s) toothpaste. Do you see sodium lauryl sulfate in it? If so, you may want to consider giving it the boot and getting your very own tube of TheraBreath toothpaste. After all, we have enough to worry about in our busy lives; canker sores shouldn’t be an issue.

What is SLS? It’s SOAP. It’s a surfactant that can cause damage to the lining of the interior of your mouth and dry it out, causing dry mouth, which you probably know by now can lead to bad breath.

Why would oral care companies include this in your toothpaste? SLS creates that foaming action that develops in your mouth when you’re brushing your teeth. While it isn’t actually doing anything to better clean your teeth, gums and mouth, it gives the user the impression that it does. SLS is also used in many shampoos for the same foam-filled experience.
