Halitosis Treatment

Don't Cover It, Cure It!

Over 90 million people struggle with chronic bad breath! The culprit? Typically, people have poor oral hygiene habits that leave decaying food particles, other debris, or bacteria in the mouth. These conditions produce volatile sulfur compounds just like those found in rotten eggs, resulting in foul-smelling breath. No wonder chewing gum, mints, or typical mouthwashes won't cure it! Of course, bad breath may also stem from a general health situation: internal infections, gum disease itself, diabetes, kidney failure, liver malfunction, radiation treatment for cancer; even simply conditions such as stress, dieting, snoring, advancing age, and hormonal changes.

Oral Hygiene, Rinses, & Relationships

Regardless of the cause, bad breath is treatable! First, institute effective oral hygiene: regular professional cleanings, twice daily brushing, daily flossing, and tongue cleaning. Effective tongue cleaning with a specially designed scraper will remove bacterial build-up 10 times more effectively than a toothbrush. Second, if your meticulous hygiene is insufficient for eliminating bad breath, invest in a professional breath kit such as BreathRx, which includes a specially formulated toothpaste, a chlorine-stabilized rinse that destroys those odorous volatile sulfur compounds for up to 5 hours, and tongue scraper. Most people notice an immediate improvement. And better breath means better relationships!
