Memorial Day Sale at TheraBreath!

Monday, May 19th, 2014

memorial day sale

Hi there,

Memorial Day is only a week away. Along with being a three-day weekend, it’s also the unofficial start to summer and a time to break out the barbeques and sunscreen. Hot dogs and hamburgers almost always are on the Memorial Day menu and while they are delicious, they can also cause bad breath. Nitrites in hot dogs and the onions and garlic you might add into your hamburger patties for extra flavor can produce some nasty odors in your mouth – you can read more about that here.

Don’t let BBQ breath ruin your holiday! Stock up on TheraBreath’s bad-breath-busting products during our Memorial Day Sale. From now until May 26, get 15% off your order of $49 or more PLUS free shipping! All you have to do is enter coupon code AMEM4 during checkout.*

Shop now and save on all of our products – no exclusions! That means whether you just need some on-the-go products like gum or lozenges or need to stock up on oral rinse and toothpaste, you’ll save 15% and get free shipping.

Going somewhere for the long weekend? Be sure to grab our travel size oral rinses and toothpastes so you can have fresh breath wherever you are.

Have a happy and safe Memorial Day!

* Offer valid on orders shipped to the US and Canada only. Offer cannot be combined with any other offer. Offer expires at 11:59pm PDT May 26, 2014.

Bad Breath Triggered by Colds

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

bad breath cold pnd

In the thick of cold and flu season, getting sick can come with an odorous side effect: bad breath.

It’s already difficult to detect your own foul breath, and when your nose becomes clogged, it becomes even trickier. However, I have talked to a handful of spouses who can tell that their loved one is getting sick based on the stench of their exhalations.

There are several ways breath gets fouled by a cold. Most of the time, the culprit is a combination of post-nasal drip and cough, according to experts at the Colgate Oral and Dental Health Resource Center. When an individual catches a cold, the body quickly begins to expel foreign matter – in this case, bacteria or viruses – through mucus production. The yellowish mucus, which normally runs out the front of your nose in the form of runny nose, now thickens and drips down the back of the throat. With this mucus building in the back of the throat, the mouth becomes a breeding ground for halitosis.

Congestion can also spur another issue. When we have a stuffy nose, we tend to sleep with our mouth open, which severely dries the palate and causes repugnant morning breath. Doctors point out that inhaling and exhaling this zaps the mouth of saliva - typically a natural cleaning agent – and makes your breath susceptible to odor-causing sulfuric bacteria. During colds, a dry mouth harbors these smelly bacteria on the tongue, gums and cheek.

Furthermore, a cough complicates cold-related halitosis. Since the reflex occurs when the throat and lungs are exposed to irritants, post-nasal drip can play a role in triggering it. Coughing not only drags up stale, ammonia-smelling air from the lungs, but also continues to parch the throat, mouth and palate.

Other incidental aspects of being sick can worsen halitosis. Drinking thick, syrupy cough medicine can leave breath smelling bitter. Constantly eating savory foods, like chicken noodle soup, may create a film of oil on the teeth, which can result in more odor-causing bacteria.

National Smile Month

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

national smile month

Our neighbors across the pond are celebrating National Smile Month from May 19 to June 19. As the largest and longest-running oral health campaign in the U.K., National Smile Month seeks to heighten awareness about vital oral health issues such as cavities and gum disease, and while they might be some 3,000 miles away, the power of a smile can go a long way.

For the majority of Americans and Brits, one’s teeth is the first thing they notice when meeting someone. According to a British study, white teeth can make you look 20 percent more attractive and up to 16 percent employable. They can also chip five years off of how old you look. First impressions are everything, and your smile has an instant impact on those around you.

The mouth-body connection
Beyond the sheer appearance of your pearly whites, the mouth is considered the gateway to the body. What foods you eat, beverages you drink and chemicals you smoke enter the mouth to affect the system as a whole. Research has shown that rotten oral health is connected to an increased risk for cardiovascular problems, Type 2 diabetes and complications during pregnancy. In one study published in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people with serious gum disease were 40 percent more likely to have a chronic condition.

So, what comes to mind when you think of poor oral health? Yellow teeth, gap smile and rancid bad breath. While that’s certainly the epitome of things, there are many more common problems that we tend to overlook – and many more people suffer from them than you may think.

You wouldn’t ignore a bleeding foot, so why ignore bleeding gums? Puffy, red and bleeding gums can be a sign of gum disease. On a basic level, the condition is attributed to plaque building up along the gum line, which irritates the tissues and erodes dental enamel. As it progresses, the gums become inflamed, a condition known as gingivitis.

If plaque is not removed with regular brushing and dental appointments, it will harden into what is called tartar – and only a dentist can get rid of it. In the most severe cases, tartar buildup may lead to gum recession, or periodontitis, that wears away at the jawbone and usually results in tooth loss.

Tips to maintain proper oral health
To avoid these concerns, here are the three key ingredients for a clean smile and healthy gums:

  1. Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. (more…)

Do you ever get dry mouth?

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Here is what you should know about dry mouth:

A lot of people suffer from dry mouth. Over 75% of medications that are routinely prescribed in America have a dry mouth side effect. If you take prescription medication, chances are you sometimes have uncomfortable dry mouth.

Dry mouth is bad for you. Your saliva is there to stop germs from getting into your system. Think about it – the easiest place for germs to get into your body are through your nose and mouth. Spit and snot are there to trap and kill those germs before they get in. When your nose and mouth are dry, there is nothing there to stop various bacteria from making themselves at home – and making you sick.

TheraBreath Mouthwash and Toothpaste stop dry mouth instantly. You probably know TheraBreath products for their fresh breath benefits. But if you are among the millions of Americans with uncomfortable and unhealthy dry mouth, you should also remember to use TheraBreath as an effective dry mouth treatment. All TheraBreath formulas (our regular, gum health, and extra strength product lines) have special active ingredients designed to target and knock out dry mouth.

Many of our users report that nothing works as well as TheraBreath on dry mouth and we guarantee that you will agree! If for any reason you’re not satisfied with how well TheraBreath works on dry mouth, let us know and we’ll promptly refund your product cost.

P.S.: If you are looking to try TheraBreath products for yourself, now is a great time because we are having a huge sale.

During the TheraBreath Bonus Pak Sale you can save up to 65% on America’s #1 selling fresh breath and dry mouth products. Plus, shipping on all Bonus Pak orders is free.
