Kiss Bad Breath Goodbye Forever

Ever gotten any “bad-breath cues” from others? Like someone stepping back when you approach, turning to one side, rubbing a finger under their nose, coughing, or offering you gum or mints? Or, do you notice a bad taste or an odor coming from your mouth? If any of these happen to you, you probably have bad breath, or halitosis.

Bad breath can be a devastating condition for those who have it – affecting personal lives, jobs, and relationships. Researchers estimate the number of Americans with mild to severe chronic halitosis at over 60 million people, 20% of the population.

And the most serious of those live a life of quiet embarrassment, being afraid that someone will blurt out, “Your breath stinks”. It is not uncommon for these people to shun social occasions, going out with friends, dating, and even intimacy, lest they be “found out” and embarrassed that their breath is noxious.

Bad breath, or halitosis, is a highly unhealthy bacterial infection caused by an overgrowth of destructive bacteria, the same type that cause gum disease and teeth loss. This type of bacteria thrives inside the biofilm coating on the tongue that attaches so tightly to the surface of the tongue that no tongue cleaner, toothbrush, or mouthwash can penetrate it.

Biofilm is also present under the gums, between the teeth, and any other place where food ferments, such as untreated decay or ill-fitting fillings or crowns. These bacteria produce air-borne sulfur compounds the odor of rotten eggs, dirty socks, and even feces as their bacterial waste, what people close to us smell if we have bad breath.

On the tongue, the odor-causing bacteria hide among the taste buds. Covered by months to years of coatings of debris, dead bacteria, dead blood cells, fermented foods, mucous, and other foods, the live bacteria within the coating produce the sulfur odors of bad breath.

Two Ways To Treat Halitosis

There are two ways to treat halitosis. First, mouthwashes, toothpastes, gums, mints and other cover-ups can give some short-term relief. No matter which product you choose, the bacteria and odors will eat through it over time, making its effectiveness limited.

A study done by a leading consumer magazine showed that mouthwashes rarely lasted more than one hour, and all the ones tested lasted less that two hours.

If that doesn't work, to cure halitosis, the only option is Tongue Rejuvenation a painless process that totally eliminates the odorous compounds and the bacteria that produce them from the surface of the tongue. Tongue Rejuvenation has a 100% success rate over thousands of people treated when performed by a professional who specializes in Bad breath no longer needs to be an embarrassing problem in your life. With Tongue Rejuvenation you truly can kiss bad breath goodbye, and, prevent it from coming back for good.
