Your Alcohol-free Mouthwash need not Turn Your Urine Blue

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Occasionally, the need for an alcohol-free mouthwash may send you searching through popular health blogs in the hopes of finding a product that will clear up your bad breath. Well, search no more, because TheraBreath offers a number of alcohol-free rinses that can neutralize odor and clean the mouth, all without harsh chemicals.

And if you think synthetic chemical are never marketed as halitosis solutions anymore, just look at how often photodynamic therapy for bad breath, or “blue light therapy,” appears in headlines. This treatment, which is totally unnecessary for eliminating oral odor, uses a chemical that can turn your urine and eye whites blue.

What is photodynamic therapy?

Most recently, an article published by the UK’s Daily Mail discussed using such a treatment for halitosis. In a piece that also touched on using “light therapy” for such conditions as epilepsy, cancer, stroke and stomach ulcers, halitosis stands out a bit. And the article uses a photo of a house lamp to illustrate “harnessing the power of light.” Hopefully your skepticism has been aroused.

As it turns out, so-called blue light treatments for halitosis are based on photodynamic therapy (PT), a century-old medical practice that uses photosensitizing chemicals (plus a narrow spectrum of light wavelengths) to kill pathogens or fight disease.

Ingredients in Your Oral Care Products May Hurt More than Help

Friday, March 9th, 2012

Day to day oral care really shouldn’t be rocket science: You brush, floss and rinse twice a day. Seems simple, right? It is to a degree, but it’s important to be aware of what ingredients you are putting in your mouth when you brush your pearly whites. Here are some recent articles that discuss which ingredients to avoid in your oral care products and why.

Many oral care products (especially children’s) such as mouthwash, toothpaste and gum often contain dyes to give them an attractive and bright appearance. There’s nothing wrong with a product wanted to be appealing to eye, right? Well, there might be. According to one article the HealthDay News reports the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will gather a panel of healthcare experts to discuss whether to not these dyes are linked to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Almost 10 percent of US children from age 4 to 17 have been diagnosed with ADHD according to the Centers to Disease Control and Prevention – that’s roughly 5.4 million youngsters in America alone. The link to ADHD and food dyes has yet to be confirmed, but many health experts already suspect a connection. David Schaub, a psychiatric researcher, professor at Columbia University and FDA panel member told HealthDay News that this pending meeting is “a big step forward” in discussing this issue. While the jury is still out, it’s probably best to stay clear of oral care products that contain dyes to avoid the potential risk of excess dye absorption.

Some people may brush, floss and rinse twice a day but shortly after the deed is done, feel that their bad breath comes back. With good intentions, these same people may purchase and use alcohol-based mouthwashes with mint or cinnamon flavors to cure bad breath. As one article states, while these mouthwashes may mute halitosis for a little while, over time they may actually contribute and cause bad breath. Robin Seymour, as restorative dentist told the UK Daily Mail that some mouthwashes may contain as much as 13 percent of alcohol (by volume). The alcohol in mixed with other natural compounds such as menthol to target oral odor and plaque. While this sounds good in theory, Seymour stated that alcohol dries out the palate and tongue, leaving the anaerobic bacteria that cause bad breath to thrive. With time, the cycle of using an alcohol-based mouthwash, drying out the mouth and having the bacteria multiply may actually make the bad breath bacterial strains more resilient and will allow the microorganisms to thrive in the dry mouth environment. Seymour commented that over time, these types of mouthwashes may stain teeth a pale brown.  Seymour also noted a study that was published in the Dental Journal of Australia that links alcohol-rich mouthwashes to an increased risk of oral cancer.

TheraBreath’s Specialty Breath Fresheners can Beat Halitosis for Folks of all Body Types

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Halitosis is inevitable, which is one reason why TheraBreath offers such a wide array of breath freshening products. With so many specialty items available, like toothpastes, alcohol-free mouthwashes, mints, lozenges, tongue scrapers, tooth-whitening kits and probiotics, there’s little excuse for suffering through bad breath.

Of course, getting oral odor is unavoidable. With so many bacteria living on your tongue, cheeks and palate, bad breath is a fact of life. What matters is how you deal with it.

At times, it can seem like your mouth goes from fresh to foul faster than you can say “Robin Redbreast’s bad breath” three times. (It’s a tongue twister. Try it.) Are some people more prone to halitosis? Do people of certain health backgrounds or body types get bad breath quicker or more chronically than others? They sure do.

Some folks get more halitosis based on their habits or personal hygiene. So, for example, someone who brushes their teeth once per day is almost certainly more likely to have a stinky mouth than someone who scrubs their teeth two or three times daily. Individuals with an unenthusiastic oral care routine – one that skips the floss, tongue scraper and mouthwash – have themselves to blame for their oral odor. Similarly, people who smoke, drink heavily or eat pungent foods will naturally have bad breath.

Likewise, using an inferior breath product can allow the mouth to develop halitosis more often. For example, alcohol-based mouthwashes can dry out the palate, leaving you more likely to have bad breath, rather than less. This is why TheraBreath recommends using its specialty breath fresheners, since they are specially formulated to neutralize odor and eliminate bacteria.
