Important Scientific Studies

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

Use of TheraBreath products in Bad Breath Patients:

(GCF and Halimeter Values, Effects of Oxygenized Saliva)
by: Drs. G. Acikgoz, I. Devrim, M. Aldikacti, A. Kayipmaz, G. Keles – Professors of Periodontology at The Ondokuz Mayis University Dental School, Department of Periodontology – Samsun, Turkey

This independent study was presented abt the 4th International Symposium on Oral Malodor, held at The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

There are several etiological roles which play a role in the ethiopathogenesis of bad breath. However, the major role is the bacterial production of hydrogen sulphide. These anaerobic bacteria live in areas where oxygen cannot reach them, including the back of the throat and tongue, interproximal areas of the teeth, periodontal pockets and enlarged tonsilla. A benefit to those who suffer with bad breath would be the use of an oxygenating agent which would eliminate the hydrogen sulphide and the anaerobic bacteria.

Twenty-five subjects suffering with bad breath were treated with TheraBreath brand stabilized chlorine dioxide mouthwash, toothgel, and spray. Their progress was monitored by using 3 scientifically reproducible methods:

Flame Gas Chromatography, used to measure the production of Volatile Sulphur Compounds in laboratories.

The Interscan Halimeter, which is used by some dentists to monitor the production of sulphides in their dental offices.

Periotron 8000, which measures the concentration of anaerobic bacteria and sulphides in collected saliva.

Results showed the following:

The Flame Gas Chromatography readings of Volatile Sulphur Compounds decreased significantly following use of the products.

A statistically significant decrease in Halimeter readings, showing that the oxygenating effect of TheraBreath reduced volatile sulfur compounds.

Readings on the Periotron 8000 with regards to patients saliva showed that TheraBreath had a beneficial effect.

Notes: This study was translated from Turkish so that it could be presented at the 4th International Symposium on Oral Malodor at the University of California at Los Angeles.

The following independent study was performed over several weeks at the office of Fred Heller DDS, San Francisco, CA on patients who had bad breath and were then instructed on the use of TheraBreath products.

Reduction of Oral Malodour by a Chlorine Dioxide Containing Mouthrinse; Likely mechanisms of Action in Vivo

H. Chang, J. Greenman, R. Allaker, and E. Lynch

Department of of Conservative Dentistry, Saint Bartholomew’s and the Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry, QMW, University of London and the University of West England, Bristol, UK

The change in volatile sulfur compounds (VSC) levels intraorally as recorded by a Halimeter was studied as a potential method to investigate the mode of action and efficacy of a chlorine dioxide (ClO2) mouthwash used as an anti-halitosis agent. The Halimeter was used to monitor the levels of H2S (hydrogen sulfide) every 2 minutes following a 0.1% (w/v) cysteine mouthrinse, which was held in the mouth for one minute prior to expectoration.

The results from an initial study with three participants showed that the VSC response reached a maximum recorded level at either 4 or 6 minutes and returned to around baseline levels after approximately 30 to 40 minutes.

Furthermore, a second cysteine mouthrinse applied within 1 to 2 hours following the first rinse gave a trend towards a larger H2S response, indicating inducibility of VSC production. This experiment involved application of a control rinse (water) on day 1 and a chlorine dioxide rinse (test) on day 2, 75 minutes following a first recorded cysteine-H2S response and one hour prior to a second recorded cysteine-H2S response, on 20 participants.

The results showed that the second cysteine-H2S response was significantly reduced (43% reduction; p< 0.05) following the chlorine dioxide rinse test agent, compared to the water control. These results indicate that the mechanism of action of the chlorine dioxide reduction of VSC production is unlikely to be primarily mediated by oxidation of substrate or VSC product.

Microbiological sampling of the tongue flora following cysteine, water, and chlorine dioxide mouthrinses showed no significant differences in the recovery of aerobic, facultative anaerobic, or strict anaerobic tongue species, suggesting that one of the main mechanisms of action of chlorine dioxide may be irreversible inhibition of the major cysteine to H2S enzyme, cysteine desulfhydrase.

Another Bad Breath Spray?

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

If you are like me, then you’re probably thinking “Not another breath spray – isn’t rinsing and brushing enough?”

It’s a valid question…and one that I think I’ve tried to answer before, but I don’t mind doing it again.

Let me start by saying this – bad breath is the odor of the volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) that are created from the anaerobic bacteria that live in your mouth, between your teeth, beneath the surface of your tongue, in the back of your throat, and in your tonsils (if they exist).

breath spraySee the picture to the left…. reaching your mouth, teeth, and front of your tongue in regions D, E, and F is simple – tens of thousands of you do it every day with our TheraBreath Oral Rinses and Toothpastes. But what about the production of odors farther back (Regions A, B, and C) – in the very back of your tongue, deep in your throat or in your tonsils?

When you gargle with an oral rinse (mouthwash) – most of time it can be very difficult to reach way down deep in your throat. Many of my patients find that a ‘Gag Reflex’ kicks in (this happens automatically in most people when something touches a sensitive area in the back of your throat and tongue). So what can you do? To stop bad breath you MUST neutralize the sulfur compounds that have been created by the anaerobic bacteria that live in deep recesses of your throat and tongue.

In response to this exact concern, I’ve created a breath spray that addresses this problem. TheraBreath PLUS Extinguisher Breath Spray has a unique 7.5cm long, swiveling, extended head which holds down the tongue and sprays the potent Therabreath PLUS formula directly on the bacterial breeding ground located in the back of your tongue and throat. It’s the only patented extra strength formula that can literally reach the part of your throat and tongue that no other formula can touch!

Many of you have told me that during your first clinical appointment, you’ve always felt something stuck in your throat – and you’ve attributed that uncomfortable feeling to your breath and taste disorder. This spray was designed to solve that problem.

Please remember that for chronic conditions, the only way to prevent the anaerobic bacteria from creating VSC’s is through daily use of an oxygenating line of products such as TheraBreath Oral Rinse and Toothgel (now at Albertsons, SavOn, Jewel, Osco, and Acme). For specific instructions on how to do this, see the Instructions of Use.

It’s especially useful for patients with:

  1. Chronic bad breath who want extra relief throughout the day
  2. Occasional (situational) breath or taste disorder, who want instant relief without an overbearing strong minty taste or smell
  3. Dry mouth sufferers, whose tongue tends to become extra sticky as the day goes on

TheraBreath PLUS Extinguisher Spray is small enough to carry in your pocket, purse, or briefcase, so that you can even use it before or after your favorite garlic dish. I hope you can now see how a breath spray (especially one that actually reaches the source of bad breath) can help you regain your confidence.
