Bad Breath Treatments: A Quick Review

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

There is a wealth of bad breath treatments available on the market, some effective and others less-than-productive. With so many routes to choose on the road to good oral
well-being, it is easy to get lost. Fortunately, we at TheraBreath are always willing to lay out a straightforward set of instructions for becoming dentally health and halitosis-free.

In the name of simplicity, here is a quick review of effective bad breath treatments.

– Brush your teeth. Sure, it may come as a given that you should try to keep your pearly whites clean, but many people take their dental health for granted. The same bacteria that contribute to tooth decay and cavities also emit many of the odor molecules associated with bad breath. By  brushing, you can kill two birds with one stone.

– Floss. The tartar that gets stuck between your teeth gives off a foul smell, especially if left to fester for months or even years. Using a fine strand of waxed string or dental tape can lift this gunk out from its hiding places. Don’t forget to floss all the way down under your gums!

– Scrape your tongue. It may sound disgusting, but the revulsion you feel reflects poorly on the state of your tongue, not on the scraper itself. Besides being an integral part of your digestive system, your tongue is home to billions of halitosis-causing microbes. It also carries several grams of dead cells and decaying proteins at any one time. Unless you’re comfortable treating your tongue like an ongoing bacteriological experiment, consider investing in a specialty tongue scraper.

Having Fresh Breath Doesn’t Have to Cost a Bundle

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

If you are afflicted with bad breath, you may be willing to go to any length and spend any amount of money to fix it. However, having fresh breath doesn’t have to break the bank. Women’s Health published a list of fresh breath tips that won’t hurt your wallet. Most of them were fairly obvious and we are always suggesting the same solutions: brushing, flossing and rinsing with an alcohol-free mouthwash at least twice daily along with cleaning your tongue along with your teeth and the interior of your mouth.

The magazine did also include tips such as chewing sugar-free gum (to avoid dry mouth), eating a carbohydrate-heavy diet and drinking unsweetened tea. These suggestions might help reduce oral odor caused by the VSCs that thrive in your mouth and compounds in your blood stream.

Along with these helpful tips, we’d also like to suggest trying a sugar-free mint if gum isn’t your thing. Also, be sure to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water each day. If you want to be proactive about the health of your mouth (and the smell of your breath) we’d like to suggest trying our Multi Symptom Probiotics which can introduce healthy and helpful bacteria into your oral cavity and thus fight of the odor causing bugs. It’s also important to see your dentist regularly to prevent any problems that could get expensive to treat.

Regardless of how much money you make, fresh breath doesn’t have to be something you can’t afford. Just make sure you choose the best products for the health of your breath and mouth and it will save you a bunch of dental bills in the long run.

Vitamin Supplements May Help with Bad Breath

Monday, April 4th, 2011

The University of California, San Diego’s Healthwise Knowlegebase states that there are some vitamins and minerals that can treat or help prevent causes of bad breath. However, taking these supplements won’t work immediately– use TheraBreath products to give you instantly fresh breath.

Aside from bad breath that originates in the stomach or lungs, most cases of halitosis come from dry mouth, plaque, gum disease or white tongue.

According to UCSD’s free database, there are a number of supplements that help better your breath, along with general health and wellness benefits. Vitamin C helps the body fight gingivitis – the first stage of gum disease. Common signs of gingivitis are gums that bleed easily and appear swollen. Gingivitis is a very common cause of bad breath. If you are suffering from gingivitis, try TheraBreath’s PerioTherapy line, it is proven to treat gingivitis and give you fresh breath.

Vitamin E, vitamin b9, zinc and selenium will help the mouth combat periodontitis – the second stage of gum disease. Periodontitis can lead to eventual tooth loss, not to mention foul breath. TheraBreath’s PerioTherapy can stop gum disease. PerioO2, a medical-grade oxygenating compound found only in PerioTherapy attacks the bacteria which create plaque, destroys the sulfur toxins they produce, and provides oxygen ions to help restore optimal tissue health. Tea tree oil and zinc gluconate neutralize micro-organisms and aloe vera stops bleeding to prevent these germs from invading.

If you aren’t already, consider taking daily supplements that contain these vitamins and minerals, or find a good multivitamin. We also suggest trying TheraBreath’s line of Probiotics – they can help with your breath from the inside out along with the health of your throat, mouth and overall well-being.
