Persistent bad breath can be an annoying inconvenience, a confidence destroyer, or an indication of underlying dental health issues. Many people who suffer from this problem find that simply brushing and flossing don’t work.
Luckily, there are solutions available to help minimize this embarrassing problem and keep your breath fresher, longer.
What is TheraBreath?
TheraBreath is an oral care company that creates products addressing oral health issues like halitosis, gum disease, tonsil stones, yellowed teeth, canker sores, and more.
The founder, Dr. Harold Katz, is an internationally recognized expert in the fields of bad breath, taste disorders, tonsil stones and dry mouth. Known as the “Bad Breath Guru” due to his many television appearances on shows like The View and the CBS Early Show, he has helped millions of people around the world neutralize their bad breath problems.
All TheraBreath products pass requirements set by the American Dental Association. Their extensive product line includes clinical strength oral rinses and toothpastes, throat sprays, oral care probiotic lozenges, teeth whitening kits, and gum therapy kits. Their starter packs give you a cost-effective sampler of their clinical strength breath freshening products to accommodate your specific needs.
Why do Dr. Wes and other dentists recommend TheraBreath products?
TheraBreath products and formulas are tested regularly by external third party labs to make sure they perform as well as they promise. Most recently, in a study by Princeton Consumer Research, results showed that TheraBreath’s claim that their toothpaste “freshens breath for over 12 hours” is valid. Another study conducted by professors of periodontology concluded that the patented oxygenated toothpaste has beneficial effects on patients suffering from bad breath.
Instead of just hiding bad breath with heavily scented products, TheraBreath offers an oral care system specifically designed to completely wipe out the germs and bacteria that cause it. Since the bacteria at the root of bad breath cannot survive in oxygen-rich environments, the toothpaste has the active ingredient OXYD-8 to oxygenate your mouth, which begins to destroy bad breath odors immediately.
In addition, TheraBreath Toothpaste is actually a gel. Gels have much smaller molecules than paste, which means TheraBreath products can penetrate deeper below the tongue surface to kill bacteria lurking there.
Dr. Wes also recommends TheraBreath Toothpaste because it does not contain sodium lauryl sulfate—a harsh detergent used by almost all other toothpastes despite its link to increased incidence of canker sores—or saccharin, which is common in other breath-freshening products but has been shown to be carcinogenic in lab animals.
