What’s in the Best Mouthwash for Treating Bad Breath?

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Do you have oral odor, bad breath or evil-smelling exhalations? Is every puff from your palate putrid, every gasp gross? Is your respiration rank? In short, do you have halitosis? If so, you’re probably on the hunt for the best mouthwash around. Well, look no further. TheraBreath is here to help.

We find that many people come to us feeling frustrated about the mouthwash that they’re using. After all, most alcohol-based mouthrinses promise to nix bacteria, sweeten breath, thicken enamel and so on. Why is it that these products just don’t seem to work?

Those that remain quickly repopulate your mouth with a new breed of slightly more resilient microorganisms.

That’s no good. On top of that, alcohol dries out your palate, leaving your mouth in prime condition for recolonization. Dryness can irritate your gums and tongue, too, as can sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), another common ingredient in typical mouthwashes. This chemical is a surfactant and detergent. That’s right: SLS is similar to the stuff you wash your dirty clothes in.
