I once heard well renown dental lecturer, Gordon Christensen state, ” 90% of breath and mouth malodor originates from our tongue and brushing one's tongue does almost nothing.”
The cause of foul-smelling breath occurs on the top surface of our tongue where there are grooves and ridges which is an ideal breeding ground for trapped bacterial biofilm. Every day, you get a build up of biofilm that can eventually produce volatile sulphur compounds – commonly known as a rotten egg smell.
This biofilm can be easily removed with a tongue cleaner. We love the Oolitt-brand
tongue cleaner! It is effortless to use and it takes less than 10 seconds to clean
the top surface of one's tongue with ease!
Two simple tips to avoid the inevitable gagging sensation:
#1 – Our gaging reflex is diminished in the evenings so clean your tongue before you go to bed.
#2 – If you stick your tongue out as far as you can, hold it still, then place the
tongue cleaner as far back as you are able to comfortably reach and then start scraping!
Note – When you have successfully removed the biofilm be certain to clean your device with hot, soapy water.
To have the assurance and confidence of fresh breath we suggest the use of CloSYS
paste and rinse. It is the smarter oral care choice for your health. We have been
recommending and dispensing these outstanding products to our patients for over 20 years!
The Cloralstan™ ingredient in CloSYS is naturally activated by the amino acids in saliva giving you the confidence that comes from eliminating the germs and bacteria that may cause other health issues in your mouth and body. Another benefit of Cloralstan™ is that is eliminates mouth malodors for up to 8 hours!
