TheraBreath Products ~ A Review and Giveaway!

TheraBreath Products Logo

I am an oral hygiene fanatic.   My husband likes to make fun of me because I love going to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned  I have a wide array of dental related items.   I love the feeling of smooth, clean, teeth.  I'm also very conscious of breath issues.  I never left my house without sugarless gum to rewet my mouth and freshen my breath.  What always puzzled me was why, when I brushed so often, and took such meticulous care of my teeth, did my mouth not smell like a sparkling spearmint leaf, or a dazzling cinnamon stick?  I had been conditioned to believe that these were the answers to beautiful breath.

Then, I had the opportunity to try Therabreath products.  Before I used even a single item, I read the enclosed "Bad Breath Bible".  I am now very well versed in halitosis and its causes.  I learned quite a bit, including the fact that I have been brushing my teeth the wrong way for all these years!   That was really quite surprising to me!

I also read about Dr. Harold Katz, the man behind the TheraBreath products.  He is the founder of the California Breath Clinics and known as the "Bad Breath Guru".   You may have seen him on TV.    He is not only a dentist, but he has a degree in bacteriology.   His understanding of bacteria is the secret behind his success.

I now know that key to a fresh mouth is not the popular products with sodium laurel sulfate.  That is why despite brushing four times a day, flossing, rinsing, etc, I still needed to carry gum!  Dr. Katz's daughter had a similar problem in the early 1990's.  Her halitosis was quite severe.   He set out to get to the root of the problem, and the Therabreath product line was born.  Necessity truly is the mother of invention!  My reading left me very intrigued and ready to put these products to the test.

Lucky me!  I was given a tube of toothpaste, a bottle of  oral rinse,  and a box of mouth wetting, fresh breath lozenges.   I have been using them for almost two weeks.   Right away, I noticed that my  morning breath was not nearly as gross!  I also noticed that my mouth, especially my tongue, felt different.   I replaced my gum with the lozenges, and I was reaching for them much less often than I had previously been grabbing for the gum!

The products are NOT what I was accustomed to.  The lozenges have a minty citrus taste and left my mouth very fresh, but the rinse and the paste are very lightly flavored.  They work on fixing the problems, not covering them up.  They are also gentle to my mouth.  There is no sting or burn.

We all love the big dispenser pack of lozenges.  Each one is individually wrapped making it really easy to tuck a few into a pocket or a purse.  These lozenges work in three stages.  First, the citrus cleans out any bad tastes in the mouth, the second stage kills the germs, and the third helps stimulate saliva production, helping the body to keep germs at bay.
