What Causes Bad Breath?

Knowing how to get rid of bad breath is integral in
eliminating and curing your Bad Breath, also know as halitosis. The
article below explains this in more detail.

Bad Breath: What Causes It And How To Get Rid Of It

For a majority of people, bad breath is not just an occasional problem. Indeed, it is one that they have to deal with every single day. It can be terribly exasperating, especially when you think that it is incurable. However, there are ways to fight against the bad odor. First and foremost, what you need to be aware of is what the causes of bad breath are.

What Causes Bad Breath?

Some people mistakenly think that what they eat is the main cause of the distinctly offending odor. The truth is, this is not always the sole reason. Bad breath or halitosis is caused by anaerobic, sulfur causing bacteria that accumulate underneath the tongue. This bacteria produces volatile sulfur compounds, also called VSCs. These compounds can have a stench of garbage or smelly socks. These compounds can also create a disagreeable taste in your mouth.

Why TheraBreath Works

By Dr. Harold Katz – BAD BREATH EXPERT

SUMMARY: Why TheraBreath Works So Well

7 Reasons Why TheraBreath is Superior to any other group of Products

One:
Our active ingredient is stabilized and generates oxidizing power as soon as it enters your mouth. This stabilization process allows TheraBreath to have up to a 3 year shelf-life.
[NOTE: Do not be confused by jealous competitors who state that TheraBreath does not contain active chlorine dioxide. Those statements are made to confuse the public. When any of the TheraBreath products enter your mouth, a chemical reaction takes place, which allows PLENTY of fresh oxidation every time you use it. That’s why thousands of TheraBreath kits are sold every week in North America, Asia, Europe, South America, and Australia!]

Two:
TheraBreath has become the most “user-friendly” Anti-Halitosis System, featuring an Oral Rinse, Toothpaste, Breath Spray, Concentrated PowerDrops, and Oxygenating Chewing Gum, all designed to attack the root of the problem throughout the day with the utmost of convenience.

Some Breath-refreshing systems rely solely on mouthwash to fight bad breath.

Three:
TheraBreath ToothGel also contains Sodium Fluoride which fights decay. Fluoride has also been shown to be an effective de-sensitizing agent. Some of the other “Anti-Halitosis” systems do not contain any Fluoride at all. Before you purchase any “anti-Halitosis” product, make sure to ask if it contains Fluoride.

Four:
We have added highly concentrated Whole Leaf Aloe Vera to our toothpaste. Recent research in Asia has shown that Aloe Vera boosts the body’s ability to create collagen, which in turn strengthens weak and swollen gums to heal more quickly. (Bleeding gums provide a protein food source to the bacteria that create bad breath). No other “anti-Halitosis” system contains this form of Aloe Vera to fight this added problem.

Five:
Our toothpaste or tooth”gel” does not contain Saccharin. (some other breath-refreshing products do). Saccharin has been shown to be carcinogenic in lab animals. Also, for some people, Saccharin creates a bitter aftertaste, due to one of the chemical compounds produced during Saccharin’s chemical breakdown.

Six:
TheraBreath ToothGel does not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (a harsh detergent), which has been shown to be related to an increased incidence of canker sores. Almost all toothpastes contain this chemical. Research has shown that SLS should not be used by those who suffer from canker sores. And because the toothpaste does not contain SLS, (which will cause high levels of foam in the mouth), you will be better able to cleanse these odor-causing bacteria from your mouth by being able to brush longer.

Seven:
Our TheraBreath Toothgel is actually a gel. Chemically speaking, gels are much smaller molecules than pastes, allowing deeper penetration below the tongue surface. TheraBreath toothpaste also contains premiere tooth polishing and whitening agents, in order to keep your smile white and brilliant, but without damaging abrasives. They are cruelty-free and are not harmful to the environment.

Clinical Studies on TheraBreath:

Presented at UCLA – The University of California at Los Angeles – (at the 4th International Conference on Oral Malodor)

The Effects of Oxygenating TheraBreath Products on Bad Breath Patients – Testing of Saliva Production, and Reduction of VSC by Flame Chromatography and Halimeter Values.b

Bacterial production of Hydrogen Sulphide plays the main role in the ethiopathogenesis of bad breath, although there are several minor etiologic factors which also play a role. The anaerobic bacteria live in ideal areas, unreachable by oxygen, such as the back of the throat and tongue, interproximal areas of the teeth, periodontal pockets, and enlarged tonsilla. An oxygenating agent able to act in these regions could provide a benefit in eliminating halitosis.

Our study monitored 25 subjects at the Department of Periodontology of our University Dental School. The subjects all suffered with the most common signs of bad breath and were evaluated both before and after the study using GCF, Halimeter (manufactured by Interscan) readings, and their level of saliva production by a Periotron 8000.

Results showed a statistically significant decrease in Halimeter readings and GCF values, while at the same time increasing their level of saliva production.

Conclusion: TheraBreath products (Oral Rinse, Toothpaste, Breath Spray, Concentrated PowerDrops, and Oxygenating Chewing Gum) are able to scientifically eliminate bad breath (halitosis), while at the same time helping to create more saliva for those who suffer with dry mouth. There is a remedy for your bad breath.

Why the OXYD-8 version of chlorine dioxide (used exclusively in TheraBreath) provides the longest & strongest relief:

TheraBreath is designed to produce copious amounts of “fresh, Potent” ClO2 “ON DEMAND” exactly where it’s needed – in the oral cavity, throat and tonsils.

Consumption of “FREE” ClO2 leads to replenishment of more “FREE” ClO2 by a simple Le Chatelier shift to the right.

The demand for ClO2 is caused by the presence of the proteins and acids in the anaerobic bacteria and the volatile sulfur compounds they produce. This sensitive trigger mechanism in the OXYD-8 active ingredient in TheraBreath does not require stabilizing elements, bleach (as used in the ProFresh system) or buffers needed in other formulas.

“Why Your Bad Breath LITERALLY Disgusts Other People!”

There’s nothing worse than having bad breath. In fact, it’s probably one of the MOST embarrassing problems anyone can have because, when you suffer from bad breath, you literally make other people feel physically sick!

Seriously.

One of the basic human emotions is disgust: when presented with something potentially harmful or infectious, you recoil, scrunch your nose up, and perhaps gag. These are signs of disgust and they happen automatically. You have no conscious control over them. They are actions your brain is instructing your body to carry out in an effort to get away from the source of potential harm or infection.

Some of the chemical compounds that have been detected in bad breath include hydrogen sulfide, which smells like rotten eggs; skatole, which smell like feces; andputrescine, which smells like rotten meat. If you have bad breath, it doesn’t matter if somebody thinks you’re the greatest person they ever met because, once their brain detects any of these smells, it recognizes them as a potential source of infection and literally FORCES their body to automatic recoil in a way characteristic of feeling disgust. In other words: Their brain recognizes your bad breath as a DANGEROUS THREAT to their health and well-being! That’s why people turn away… step back… and cover their nose and mouth when you’re near them.

For this reason, it’s little wonder that, far from being a minor irritation or nuisance, bad breath can have a crippling effect on your life, your self-esteem, and your confidence. It can literally destroy your relationships with your family and friends but sending their brain into survival mode. It can even cripple your marriage too: nobody wants to kiss sombody with bad breath; from their brain’s point of view, they might as well be kissing a dog turd!

It’s also the number one turn off in any dating situation (even more so than body odor). In fact, in a survey bythe British Dental Association in England, bad breath was rated as the MOST unattractive feature any person could possibly have!

Please keep in mind the smell of your breath is an important part of good hygiene. Additionally, there are home remedies for Bad Breath.

It even has drastic implications for your career: if you walk into a job interview, and the interviewer gets a whiff off your bad breath, it sets alarm bells ringing throughout their body. On the face of things, they might think you have a great resume and that you might be well suited to the job, but, in their head, their brain will be screaming at them to get away from the source of possible infection sitting in front of them (that’s you!). Although they’re unlikely to consciously consider bad breath as a reason not to hire you, the very fact that you invoked such a strong automatic (negative) response in their body is going to sway their opinion considerably.

Be sure to get help and treat the cause of Bad Breath.

A Self-Test For Bad Breath

We can’t smell our own bad breath but people we associate with can! The degree of bad breath depends mainly on oral dryness and amount of residual toxins in the mouth.

The simplest method to check whether you have bad breath or not, is to lick the back of your wrist and allow the saliva to dry for some time and smell the area.

Another easy way is to lightly scrape the back of the tongue with an inverted spoon or a piece of dental floss, and to test for the smell of the dried residue.

You may need to ask your spouse to smell your breath and give you a proper opinion.

Of late, highly reliable home tests are made available which test for the presence of polyamines and sulfur compounds on tongue swabs. You may need to test several times in a day to arrive at an average result.

Do You Have Chronic Bad Breath?

Do You Have Chronic Bad Breath?

Chronic bad breath is not the sort of thing that, if we have it, we can expect people to tell us about.  It is a good friend indeed who can muster the courage to warn us of the fact that our breath is offensive.

On the other hand we also find it very difficult to ask somebody if we are giving offence.  It just isn’t the sort of thing is easy to do.

But one way or the other, if we are cursed with this malady, we eventually find out about it and are then faced with the question: what to do?

Chronic bad breath is a condition that is traditionally treated orally in the first instance.  Treatment is usually self-generated and consists of a frenzy of teeth cleaning and flossing followed by the multi-daily mouthwashes and continuous gum chewing.

If that doesn’t have the desired effect, the next step usually  is to visit the dentist to have a check on our teeth and gums so as to rule out the possibility of the odor arising from those places.

 What is not generally recognized is that halitosis can actually be caused by the food we eat simply because some foods or combinations of foods can generate offensive gases in the stomach which can then be transmitted to the bloodstream and carried to the lungs thus causing the offensive breath.

Establishing what food or foods can cause this problem in individual cases can be a very long drawn-out affair and a supplementary aid may be indicated.  Such a supplement is Clorial, which manages oral hygiene from the inside out, Progressive Health’s potent halitosis formula helps to combat your problem safely and effectively.  Click here to seehow Clorial can help you — fast!

Bad Breath Home Remedies

Home remedies for bad breath are many.  Some are very good.  Some are, well… not very good.  And some are best forgotten about.

So let us just deal with the very good ones. And the best of these is the one that’s used the most.

And it is used most because it is designed to combat the most common cause of bad breath, which is simply poor [or nonexistent] oral hygiene.

Let’s say right this minute your teeth are scrupulously clean.  Within five minutes dental plaque will begin to build up on your teeth and the bacteria that live in your mouth will begin to colonize that plaque. These bacteria just love carbohydrates such as soft drinks, milk, cakes, candy and raisins and if you don’t clean your teeth and so remove these bacteria their population will explode. 

Within seven to 14 days you who see inflammation of your gums, and within 14 and 21 days there will be obvious signs of a common disease of the gums: gingivitis. 

In addition those bacteria will be destroying your tooth enamel, resulting eventually in tooth decay.

All these processes cause bad breath and when taken together, they produce chronic bad breath.

Obviously then, sound oral hygiene is the leading home remedy for bad breath.

Sound oral hygiene will result by following these steps:

•    Brush your teeth at least twice daily; preferably after each meal and before retiring
•    Use toothpaste that contains fluoride
•    Floss between your teeth at least once a day — preferably after each meal, in order to remove pieces of food
•    Speak to your dentist and obtain some of those mini-brushes that are used to clean the larger gaps between your teeth.
