Prepare for Summer’s Most Fun Events and Festivals

Monday, August 12th, 2013

1288797_17766700With the summer in full swing and festival season well underway for music fans across the country, there are a few things that die-hard audiophiles can take into consideration when attending the next big event. And what better way to prepare, than to take advice than from the newest release from 1990s grunge rockers, the Pixies? What kind of advice can festival goers take from the tune “Bagboy?” Watch out for halitosis. That’s right – the group’s newest track is about bad breath. Before heading out to the next concert, street fair or festival in your area, take these pointers to make sure the song isn’t directed toward you. As they say, “cover your breath, polish your teeth.”

Take it easy on the alcohol
Summer seems to bring out an urge to pop open a beer and enjoy the beautiful weather, and when you’re at a festival, it’s hard not to. Unfortunately, drinking alcohol causes halitosis for a number of reasons. Beer and liquor have a strong odor that stays in your mouth while, as well as after, you’re done drinking, especially if you are consuming a lot. Make sure to avoid dark liquors as much as possible as well as strong beers. Secondly, drinking alcohol may cause dry mouth, which in turn causes bad breath. Since it causes you to become dehydrated, your mouth loses moisture. When there isn’t enough saliva to wash down the bacteria that cause bad breath, they just sit in the back of the mouth, on the tongue and along the gums.

Teen Habits and their Effect on Oral Hygiene

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

1184390_72579423Parents strive to teach their children good habits at a young age with the hope that they will continue a healthy lifestyle into adulthood. But once kids hit their teenage years, rebellion takes over and those productive manners may go out the window. Keeping up with good oral health habits as an adolescent can ensure that the gums, teeth and mouth are in top condition for a lifetime. Here are a few things to consider in order to maintain those pearly whites and fresh breath:

Gum

For many teenagers, chewing gum is routine. From the classroom to going out with friends, teenagers have a strange tendency to always be chomping down. While some gum can actually improve breath and help avoid dry mouth, typical packs from the super market are loaded with sugar. Instead of picking up a stick of gum with a layer of “fruit,” try sugarless gum made with the natural sweetener xylitol after meals. Consider having this all-natural gum around the house so your teenager won’t be tempted to pick up a sugar-loaded pack.

Piercings

Body piercings have become much more acceptable in modern society, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t consequences that come along with them. Tongue and lip piercings can cause teeth to chip and gums to recede. In addition, these piercings can be prone to infection, which causes bad breath and creates other issues throughout the entire mouth. Encourage children to avoid this type of body art.

Soda/sports drinks

Teenagers can sometimes down soda like it is water! There are countless harmful side effects to drinking these carbonated beverages, and they can wreak havoc on the entire mouth. Not only is one can filled with 38 grams of sugar or more, its sticky, syrupy texture lingers on the teeth, gums and tongue for much too long. Drinking just one bottle of soda pop a day can increase the amount of anaerobic bacteria in the mouth, cause bad breath, promote tooth decay and dry out the mouth. Unfortunately, sports drinks are not much better. Kids who play sports in school tend to carry along one of these beverages after or during a meet or game, but they are often loaded with a similar amount of sugar as soda. Instead, encourage teenagers to drink plenty of water, or even coconut water. Coconut water is all-natural and rehydrates better than typical sports drinks.

Bad Breath and the Movies

Monday, March 21st, 2011

Whether it’s date night with your partner, or going with a group a friends, the movies offer us a perfect two hour break from the real world. However, even if you are maintaining a healthy oral care routine, bad breath might accompany all of the delicious, sugary, buttery, cheesy munchies you can purchase at the concession stand.  We suggest packing some TheraBreath French Kiss Gum or Mouth Wetting Lozenges to help combat funky breath after you’re done with the popcorn. Or better yet, be proactive with probiotics and try TheraBreath’s Aktiv-K12 Probiotics which actually remove and then replace the undesirable anaerobic bacteria that cause bad breath.

Bad breath is very common and for many, a part of daily life (because they haven’t tried TheraBreath products yet). We can find references to halitosis on both the big and small screen. Here are a few you might have seen:

Gone with the Wind – as we have discussed in another article, Clark Gable was known for his foul breath. It was so bad that Gable’s co-star Viven Leigh often complained about it.
