Past Celebrities and Historical Figures with Bad Breath

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Smoking, consuming alcohol, plaque, gum disease, dry mouth, post nasal drip, and tonsil stones are just a few causes of bad breath. Given the many causes, it’s no wonder that millions of people suffer (and have suffered) from bad breath.

Here are a few high-profile people of the past with bad breath, why they had it, and what they could have done to treat it.

Clark Gable – a famous actor of the 20th century is best known for his role in Gone with the Wind and his strong halitosis.  His co-star Vivien Leigh reportedly complained often of Gable’s bad breath while on-set filming the classic Civil War movie. His foul breath came from his dentures. False teeth and dental bridges can be a source of bad breath, especially when they are not cleaned properly. Perhaps Clark should have washed his dentures in one of TheraBreath’s oral rinses for his on (and off) screen kissing scenes.

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.

Joss Stone Doesn’t Like Bad Breath

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Joss Stone, a 22-year-old United Kingdom soul singer, says her main turn-off in a man is bad breath.  She says that she would never date a man with halitosis, and says “there’s nothing worse than bad breath.  I’ve snogged people with bad breath who smelt of fags and beer and it made me feel sick.”  She wants the men that she dates to have minty and fresh breath.

Even though she said she wants her boyfriends to be very clean, she has admitted that her hair isn’t always freshly shampooed.  She even said the following: “I once went a week without washing my hair and I did it deliberately because I wanted the natural oils to mend my hair. It didn’t smell, surprisingly, and no one commented on it. They probably thought, ‘Oh it’s just Joss.’ ”

She is currently single and said that she has a hard time finding the right man because she is too much of a free spirit, and men would get too protective and jealous if she wanted to disappear or go on a road trip.

Lil Wayne: Bad Breath After 8 Root Canals?

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

TMZ: Those grills come at a price! In an attempt to preserve what is left of his natural teeth, Lil Wayne had to suffer through eight root canals and other major dental measures.  He had multiple tooth implants redone, some new ones added, and a few real teeth repaired.  He also had his platinum and bejeweled grill removed since he has to go to Riker’s Island prison next month.

His mouth, along with many other well-known rappers, is filled with gold and diamonds.  Some people have gold in their dentures or wear a mouth grill.  Allegedly, these grills can have a very negative effect on the teeth of those who have poor oral hygiene.  People can especially have problems if the grills are not put on properly.

#LilWaynesbreath was actually one of the top trending topics on Twitter, and many people were speculating how Lil Wayne must have bad breath.  One of our followers even said that “maybe TheraBreath can help #LilWaynesbreath”!  If that’s the case, too bad we weren’t there to help!

Jersey Shore’s ‘The Situation’ is Against Bad Breath

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Last week it was Simon Cowell, now this week we have yet another celebrity who has a phobia of halitosis.  We found out something that Jersey Shore resident Mike, also known as ‘The Situation’, can’t function without!  It’s not a tanning bed, the gym, or a washer/dryer– it’s a toothbrush!

According to a source, “The Situation always has a toothbrush on him. Always. Bad breath is the one thing that scares him more than pale people at the beach.”

Bad breath is just not ‘cool’, is it?
