It might feel clean, but your mouth is a breeding ground for bacteria, which feed on food particles trapped between your teeth and the fissures of your tongue. Bad breath is actually the smell of those bacteria's gaseous waste, a foul odour comprised of what scientists call volatile sulfur compounds or VSC. If you're not cleaning your tongue, you're virtually inviting bad breath. Now there's an easy way to sweep away the food and debris that feed odor-causing bacteria on your tongue and in your mouth. Scraping your tongue is a simple action with many positive affects on your oral health, including the significant reduction of bad breath. Use the BreathRx Gentle Tongue Scraper with its gag-reducing slim profile to safely and comfortably clean the surface of your tongue and remove all doubt that your breath is its freshest. Dual sided design means one side is regular for thorough cleaning, while the other is softer for a more gentle cleaning.

Oral malodor, or bad breath as it commonly called, is a frequent oral hygiene problem caused by bacteria that grow in the mouth and on the tongue. Most people who suffer from bad breath are unaware of their condition. The bacteria create volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs), which cause the unpleasant breath odor. Bad breath is easily treated and managed by adopting a oral healthcare regimen such as the one designed by BreathRx. Most patients are able to maintain a healthy mouth and fresh breath using this system.
Contrary to what many people believe, bad breath generally comes from the mouth and tongue, not from unhealthy teeth and gums or the digestive tract. The tongue commonly collects bacteria which, left unattended, release volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs). If the tongue is determined as the source of your patient’s bad breath, you can recommend a multi-step system designed to clean and maintain it, such as the BreathRx System. Tongue scraping can reduce odor-causing debris by up to 50% in just one scrape.
