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.
