At Last – A Bad Breath Cure

At Last – A Bad Breath Cure

Are you embarrassed by your breath? Do people step back when you get close? Turn away? Brush their fingers under their nose? Quietly move a half step sideways or turn their head? Offer you gum or mints? If so, you probably have bad breath.

For people with bad breath, a biofilm develops on the tongue, which can’t be penetrated by tongue cleaners, scrapers, or mouthwashes. You can try to cover the odor up with gums and mints, but you only get a partial solution. At some point, the bad breath odor penetrates the odor of the mints. Even the cure-in-a-bottle Internet products are usually temporary solutions and cover up the smell of bad breath for a short period. They do not eliminate the source.

Bad breath is due to the bacteria that inhabit the mouth, particularly those on the tongue. These bacteria form biofilms (coatings) that can only be removed by mechanical means. Currently, the only procedure that eliminates the biofilm and the bacteria that cause bad breath is called Tongue Rejuvenation®.

Tongue Rejuvenation has been available since 1993 and has been proven to create life-long fresh breath. It has changed the lives of thousands of the 65 million Americans who are affected by halitosis. By breaking up the biofilm with gentle sound waves, Tongue Rejuvenation® eliminates bad breath at its source.

Here are the signs and symptoms that can tell you if you have a breath problem:

  • Coating on your tongue – whitish, yellowish, or brown
  • People rub under their nose, turn a bit, cough, or react when you are near
  • Morning breath
  • Bad taste
  • Brushing and flossing do little to stop the odor
  • Mouthwashes don’t last
  • Dry mouth; thick saliva

If you want to check yourself, here is the best self-test available. Between meals, take a piece of sterile 2” x 2” gauze, available at every pharmacy. Lightly wet the gauze. Stick your tongue out as far as possible. From the furthest back area that you can reach (you may gag), wipe forward 3-4 times to get off as much coating as you can. Compare the color to the white part of the gauze. Is the gauze discolored?

A color on the gauze shows that you have removed the top of the biofilm, which is thick with bacteria and odor. Not all people can smell their odor on the gauze due to the process of adaptation which helps us get used to our own odors and smells.

Depending on the predominant sulfur compound manufactured by the bacteria in your mouth, breath odor can smell like “rotten eggs” from hydrogen sulfide and it can smell like “feces”, caused by sulfur compounds in the breath. While there are many different bad odors occurring in halitosis, some of the more common ones are: fermented cabbage, gasoline, “poop”, vomit, mothballs, and rotting flesh.

So, if you have bad breath, there is a way to say goodbye to bad breath forever – Tongue Rejuvenation® is the answer.
