What are the Best Ways to Whiten Teeth, Freshen Breath?

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

There are many ways to improve your smile, but if you want to stick to the best ways to whiten teeth, then TheraBreath may have what you need. We manufacture a special tooth whitening kit that leaves all others in the dust.

Bleaching your teeth used to be a very expensive
process, one that involved thousands of dollars and multiple trips to the dentist’s office. In those days, clinicians had to make molds of your teeth, after which it typically took more than a week before the resulting mouthpiece was ready to be used.

Then you had to visit the dentist and sit in a chair
with peroxide-filled molds in your mouth for several hours. The bleaching agent was relatively mild then, meaning that it usually required more than one such trip in order to get whiter teeth.

These days, professional tooth bleaching has come a long way, and it is now one of the best ways to whiten teeth. But it’s not the only way. In fact, many people prefer doing their own bleaching at home, since it is cheaper and can be just as effective.

Here’s how to whiten your teeth quickly and safely. First, avoid tooth-whitening kits that involve strips or brush-on paste. The latter must dry out in order to work properly, and if you accidentally salivate while it’s setting, you can leave yellow patches on your pearly whites.

Likewise, strips will bleach the front and back of each tooth, but they cannot get into the crevices, which can leave your smile looking like it has brown grout between each tooth.

The solution is to use a TheraBrite PLUS home bleaching kit, which is one of the most effective ways to whiten teeth. Its customizable molds and special carbamide peroxide gels get all sides of your teeth looking as clean and bright as porcelain.

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.

Don’t Have Bad Breath When Meeting the In-Laws

Monday, December 13th, 2010

So you’ve met “the one”- the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with. While this is amazing, the important event of meeting future or soon-to-be in-laws can be a very stressful experience.

There are the uncomfortable moments of silence, the awkward conversation and figuring out what you’re supposed to call them. On top of all of that, bad breath can really make this already stressful situation worse.

You only get one chance to make a first impression, and people with halitosis are often seen as having poor hygiene. This may infer a lack of respect for not only themselves but other people. The last thing you want is for the parents of your partner to think they are not worthy of their baby.

You will already have enough on your mind, so take the possibility of offending with your bad breath off the table. Make sure you are brushing, flossing and using a mouthwash regularly. Do a thorough job of brushing not only your teeth, but your tongue and the roof of your mouth as well.

If you are following a regular oral hygiene routine and are still having problems with your breath, consider trying our stronger TheraBreath PLUS line of oral care products. Want to whiten your teeth and have fresh breath? Try our TheraBrite line of products to safely and effectively whiten your teeth at home.

But most importantly, good luck and just be you. You’re honey digs you for a reason and his or her parents will most likely will too.
