Racing Toward Better Dental Health with Danica Patrick

Monday, January 20th, 2014

1397111_44698680NASCAR speedster Danica Patrick has launched a new campaign to give thousands of in-need Americans better oral health. Teaming up with Aspen Dental and Oral Health, the program is called the Healthy Mouth Movement, a community initiative designed to deliver free dental care to thousands of low-income communities across the country, spreading oral health education to millions more.

“Last year 100 million Americans didn’t visit a dentist, and millions more live in communities with little or no access to dental care,” Patrick, driver of the No. 10 Chevrolet SS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, told Digital Journal. “This is an issue that affects a lot of hard-working people, including NASCAR fans, who are often living in pain. It’s time to do something about it, and that’s why I’m proud to partner with Aspen Dental and Oral Health America.”

Too many people live with gum disease - a problem that’s 100 percent preventable – and toothaches caused by cavities. These issues are a roadblock to staying focused at school and work, and can affect the body as a whole. After all, periodontal disease, or advanced stage gum disease, has linked diabetes and oral health together. Patrick reminds us that a healthy mouth paves the way for a healthy body.

Get the Family into a Healthy Routine this Year

Friday, February 1st, 2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Most people are striving for good physical and mental health, and with the new year upon us, many are taking this time to reevaluate their routine to look and feel better. Committing to good oral health care is the perfect New Year’s resolution for young and old because it is an essential part of becoming a healthy person. Our mouths are the gateway to our health, and bad breath, cavities and other issues make it apparent that we are not taking good care of ourselves. The California Dental Association urges people young and old to practice good hygiene this year.

Make it a family effort
Resolutions and goals are always easier when you have someone to share them with! Why not make it a goal for the entire family to get better about their oral health? Parents should encourage their children to be brushing their teeth for two minutes, two times a day, along with flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash if children are old enough. If parents begin encouraging these practices when kids are young, it’s much more likely that the practice will just become a natural part of their daily routine. Maintaining such routines will help combat bad breathand other diseases like gum disease later in life. The CDA suggests replacing your toothbrush every three to four months or when the bristles show signs of wear because worn-out brushes aren’t able to properly clean the teeth and mouth of food particles.

“Removing plaque from the mouth keeps teeth and gums healthy, and the best way to do that is by brushing and flossing,” CDA President Lindsey Robinson, a pediatric dentist, said. “It’s important to brush with a fluoride toothpaste as fluoride reduces bacteria levels in the mouth. It also remineralizes tooth surfaces to make them stronger.”

Did You Know TheraBreath Products are Gluten Free?

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

As you may already know, here at TheraBreath, we’re big believers on being aware of the ingredients in your toothpastes, mouthwashes, gums, sprays and more. After all, these are thing that are going in your mouth! Many of our Mommy Bloggers also are mindful of what harmful ingredients are not in our products. Some ingredients you want to steer clear of are alcohol (which can cause dry mouth), sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) (which might cause canker sores) and sugar (which can lead to tooth decay and cavities). As we mentioned in a previous post, alcohol in mouthwash has been linked to an increased risk of oral cancer, so it’s definitely something you want to avoid.

But did you know that all of our products are gluten free? Yes that’s right, so if you are worried about gluten or perhaps have Celiac disease our products are perfect for you! In addition to being the #1 selling premium oral care brand, many if not all of our products are: vegan, certified Kosher, not tested on animals, made with natural ingredients, approved for diabetics and the packaging is recyclable.

So here’s a handy tip when shopping on TheraBreath.com: all of our products have badges associated with them (see image) under the product image. Simply click on a badge to learn more about what each one means. And stay tuned because we have more categories coming.

We applaud you in being a conscious consumers and hope you find this tip helpful.

The TheraBreath Blog Reviews and Giveaways Tour

Monday, April 11th, 2011

TheraBreath teamed up with the wonderful Mel at MamaBuzz to do a tour with some of her network of bloggers. Here are brief snippets and links for each, some are hosting giveaways too.

The first is the organizer and superblogger Mel at Mama Buzz. She did a TheraBreath review and is hosting a giveaway as well. Here’s a sneak peak “There are times that bad breath bothers me, particularly in the morning. My husband, on the other hand, has a hard time, which I really feel could be attributed to dental issues. For awhile now, we’ve looked for something to help him; he’s tried using different types of mouthwash because that supposedly kill bacteria in the mouth. I’ve even started buying a new toothpaste that’s supposed to kill bacteria. More recently, though, we’ve been introduced to TheraBreath.” Read the rest and enter here.

Next on the tour is Cinnamon Hollow Reviews. Enter her giveaway and read her review here. She discusses our products and the issue of tonsil stones in detail and her blog is about “showcasing products that make life easier & a little more fun!”

April at Heartfelt Homeschooling discusses why she wanted to do a TheraBreath review and giveaway. “I elected to review TheraBreath for several reasons. One – I like the option of reviewing oral care products because this aspect of hygiene is very important to our family. Second – the web site claims that using TheraBreath may help prevent canker sores or mouth ulcers. Myself, my husband and my youngest son all suffer from these ulcers frequently.” Enter her giveaway and read the rest here.

The Latest TheraBreath Blog Reviews and Giveaways

Friday, April 8th, 2011

The Frugal Fun Family has written a great TheraBreath review and is also hosting a giveaway. Michelle (the busy blogger) is also “a freelance writer and married mom of three boys.” Her review is very organized and easy to understand – check it out here. She used our products for several weeks in order to do a thoughtful, accurate review. She breaks each product down with a summary, photo , pros and cons and her conclusion. She’s also great about stating her opinions, like she prefers a very minty taste to her oral care products. Along with being a blogger, mom, wife and more, she’s also a great sister. “In fact, I even passed my products along to my sister for her to try–that was a big test for her, as she has a new boyfriend.” Visit Frugal Fun Family to see if we passed Michelle’s sister’s test.

Night Owls Perch has posted her TheraBreath review and giveaway. Not only is her review to the point and has a giveaway (who doesn’t want to win free stuff, right?) she’s also funny! You have to read the full review and enter the giveaway here. It’ll only take a few minutes and it’s definitely worth the trip. Aside from doing reviews and giveaways, Night Owls Perch also lets her readers know about special deals and coupons.

Do you love Girly Girl Giveaways? Then you have to stop by Monica’s blog of the same name to read her review and giveaway for TheraBreath. Check it out here. In her review, Monica discusses the difference of opinion that her and her husband had about our products. She also goes into detail about why our toothpaste does not foam or have a strong flavor – this gal definitely gets it! “It [the toothpaste] also does not foam up the way others do. These things did not bother me at all. Especially since I understand that most of those minty tastes in those products are made by added chemicals and sugars that only mask the odors of bad breath and may even cause odor causing bacteria to multiply faster. And as for the foaming, most toothpastes add the foaming agent sodium lauryl sulfate to appear like something is happening, in reality this additive has no real effect on how clean your teeth are getting.”
