Gingivitis During Pregnancy

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through various (if not dramatic) changes: back aches, swelling of the feet and ankles, random food cravings, and more.

With all that is going on with your body and all of the planning required to welcome this new little one into the world, I bet that your teeth and gums are probably the last thing on your mind.

However, did you know that the hormonal changes your body is experiencing during pregnancy can lead to “Pregnancy Gingivitis”?

If you already have gingivitis going into pregnancy, this condition is likely to get worse without proper gum care. Pregnant women that have gum disease are also six times more likely to have a baby that is premature or has a low-birth weight. (more…)

Kanye’s Diamond Teeth

Friday, November 5th, 2010

For those of you that haven’t already heard, Kanye West has diamond teeth. And we thought he already had everything.

Kanye recently showed off his bottom-row bling on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and there’s coverage of him exposing his sparkling grin in the November issue of Vanity Fair.

Kanye first announced his new bottom teeth on Twitter back in July (picture can be seen @kanyewest).

Singers with blinged-out teeth aren’t anything new. Lil Wayne is often seen sporting his bejeweled mouth out and about. However, he underwent a series of root canals and tooth implants to save his original teeth. And it’s a good thing because he did have to remove his grills when he went off to Riker’s Island prison. His teeth- jewelry slip on over his actual teeth.

Kanye’s new teeth aren’t going anywhere. His actual bottom teeth were reportedly knocked out back in 2002.  Staying true to his true larger-than-life style, he had permanent diamond ones put in.

This might prove to be a challenge in the years to come. Chewing may be difficult, not to mention brushing. It’s also possible that the diamond bottom row might start to erode the upper row of his actual teeth.

What advice can we offer him? Make sure you brush regularly and floss (if he can floss the bottom teeth) and use an oral rinse at least twice day.  And be sure to see your dentist regularly.

They are diamonds after all, so keep them shiny and the rest of your mouth healthy.

Bad Breath Cures That Actually Work

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Bad Breath CuresYes, there are bad breath cures that actually work. If you’ve tried multiple techniques and none of them have been successful for you, there’s a good chance you’ve been treating the symptoms and side effects of the condition known as halitosis without addressing the source of the problem.

Don’t be embarrassed if that’s the case. It’s a lot more common than you might think. Since the medical industry itself has only recently learned the true cause of bad breath, you might be trying to cure it using misinformation that was unintentionally provided by a doctor.

What causes bad breath? Answering that question puts you halfway towards finding bad breath cures. The actual cause may not be what you think it is. All of that old school thinking about poor oral hygiene and certain foods being the culprits is only half correct.

Protein-rich foods can cause bad breath, but not directly. Their presence in the body provides sustenance for anaerobic bacteria that are the actual cause of the condition. If you’re looking for bad breath cures, you need to find ones that address the root cause, not one of the many surface issues.

The Best Halitosis Cure

Monday, July 19th, 2010

halitosis cureIf you’re looking for the best halitosis cure, then you’ve come to the right place. There are various methods to eliminate bad breath, including natural cures, but we like to think that TheraBreath has the best products on the market to help beat halitosis.

If you’re not familiar with the TheraBreath line of oral hygiene products, you should know that all of our products are based on highly potent, but extremely safe Oxyd-VIII. Oxyd-VIII is a refined and properly pH balanced formula derived from sodium chlorite, a chemical that has been used in water purification for many decades.

Read 7 reasons why TheraBreath is superior to any group of products.

Over the years Dr. Katz has treated over 10,000 cases of halitosis and discovered this one basic truth: that in order to cure halitosis, you have to attack the volatile sulphur compounds produced by the bacteria in your mouth.

TheraBreath’s patented formula neutralizes the odors and bacteria in the mouth, leaving your mouth and breath feeling fresh and clean. We have many testimonials from satisfied customers. All you have to do is do an internet search for “TheraBreath reviews” and you’ll find that our products have worked wonders for people who have had issues with bad breath.

If you’re still using oral hygiene products that contain alcohol and other harmful chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), you are putting your long-term health at risk. Let us remind you that alcohol-based mouthwashes can lead to dry mouth and make your halitosis problem even worse. All these mouthwashes do is cover up your bad breath, not eliminate it.

Still not convinced that TheraBreath products are the best cure for halitosis? Well, we invite you to try them out for 30 days. If you’re not completely satisfied, you can return any product and receive a full refund. Do you know of any other company that offer this type of guarantee?

Black Garlic = No Bad Breath?

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

black garlic

This product may taste like garlic, but allegedly, the ones consuming this food do not suffer from bad breath.  ”Black garlic” is created by fermenting a garlic bulb in high temperature for about a month.  On the outside, it looks like a normal garlic bulb with the same papery skin.  On the inside, it appears to be black with a softer texture.

It is often used in fish dishes, and is popular because it is not as potent as conventional garlic. 

The downfall is that it costs quite a bit more to buy these bulbs than it does to purchase regular bulbs in supermarkets.  However, no one likes halitosis, and this may be an answer for those who like food with garlic but not the smelly consequences!
