TheraBreath is a revolutionary premium oral care system created by Doctor Harold Katz at the California Breath Clinics. The exclusive, original formula went on the market in 1994 and has been used by over 1,000,000 people world wide to solve the problems of bad breath and unpleasant mouth taste. In that time, our original formula has gone through dozens of refinements, making it the most complete and effective solution to the embarrassing personal problem of halitosis.
Why do some people have bad breath and others never have to worry about it?
It's only in the last few years that any progress has been made on diagnosing and preventing this widely misunderstood and often confused condition. It's so difficult to prevent for a variety of reason, but most prevalently because people are different.Research over the last 10 years has conclusively proved that the majority of bad breath (about 97%) is due to anaerobic bacteria that breed under the surface of your tongue, in the back of the throat, and on your tonsils.
These bacteria react with an adverse oral environment and create foul-smelling sulfur compounds such as Hydrogen Sulfide (the rotten egg smell) and Methyl Mercaptan (like dirty socks) and even more rare compounds such as cadaverine and putrescin. So one way of stopping bad breath is to neutralize these sulfur compounds - this is especially effective in people with mild-moderate halitosis and can usually be controlled with an oxygenating mouthwash, a non-SLS toothpaste, and a mixture of other oxygenating compounds decided to neutralize the sulfur compounds created by those anaerobic bacteria.
However ANOTHER way of stopping bad breath (and in cases of chronic halitosis it can even be used in conjunction with the oxygenating formulas to create a 'doubly-whammy') is to simply replace the 'bad bacteria' in your oral environment with 'good bacteria'.
