How Many People Have Bad Breath?

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Have you ever wondered how many people actually have bad breath? Then you’re not alone. The American Dental Association (ADA) asked itself the same thing – and the results were a bit surprising.  The Council of Scientific Affairs published a report that states that a whopping 50 percent  (yes, half) of the US population has bad breath at any one time. And of that 50 percent, half of that group has chronic halitosis.

This study that was published in the Journal of ADA stated that about 90 percent of all halitosis originates from the oral cavity itself. It’s true that a small percentage of bad breath can be from diseases within the lungs, bloodstream or gastrointestinal tract, but the majority starts and lingers in palate, gums and throat. This research stated that many mouthwashes chemically mask the foul smell, while others (yes, including TheraBreath) actually get to the source of foul breath and can fix and prevent it.

The paper stated, “[A] mechanism that has been proposed for the action of mouthrinses is the inactivation of [volatile sulfur compounds] and their conversion into nonmalodorous compounds by zince salts.” TheraBreath’s patented technology works very similarly to truly clean and refresh your mouth along with helping fight gum disease and even whiten your teeth, depending on which of our mouthwashes you are using.

What does this study mean? If you’re suffering with bad breath, you definitely are not alone. However, you can be a part of the half of the American population that has fresh breath on a daily basis by using TheraBreath products.

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 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.

Want to Know How to Save 50% or More On Probiotics?

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Last week we let you know that we have made a MAJOR IMPROVEMENT to TheraBreath Probiotics AND have made them a LOT LESS EXPENSIVE at the same time.

Our new TheraBreath Multi Symptom Probiotics are the only oral care probiotics in the world with patented BLIS K12 and BLIS M18 beneficial bacteria. If you have used our Aktiv-K12 Probiotics for fresh breath you already know how incredibly effective the BLIS K12 Probiotic ingredient is for reducing bad breath and improving overall oral cavity health. Now, our TheraBreath Multi Symptom Probiotics blend the proven effectiveness of BLIS K12 with the newly discovered strain of BLIS M18 in order to help your body resist tooth decay, plaque buildup, tooth staining, biofilm, ear ache, sore throats, sensitive teeth, and other oral and throat issues.

Together, these two beneficial bacteria help to provide your mouth with broad spectrum protection against many common oral and throat concerns. Best of all, using our new product is easy. You brush with the included Toothpaste, then simply mix a little package of TheraBreath Multi Symptom Probiotics with water. Then rinse and gargle. You do this every day for a week (twice on day one and twice on day seven) to attempt to colonize your oral cavity with beneficial bacteria. Once colonies are established, you should see the benefits of these remarkable probiotic bacteria rather quickly. You should expect fewer cavities, fresher breath, whiter teeth, reduction in gumand tooth sensitivity, and less frequent sore throat and ear ache incidents for those people who have a tendency to experience them. It may sound too good to be true but believe me it’s not. We’ve spent almost 10 years developing this break-through blend of Probiotics and have been successful way beyond our expectations. If you want to know more about the science behind the product, I encourage you to visit our PROBITIC RESEARCH PAGE or download our PROBIOTIC TREATMENT GUIDE and read more.
