1. Doesn't bad breath come from the stomach?
Contrary to what you may have learned or heard in the past, a
recent Dental Research concludes that the surface of the tongue is a
major source of Bad Breath. More than 80-90% of bad breath
originates from Harmful Bacteria on the tongue -not from the
stomach, not from sinus infections, not from something eaten, but
from the back of the tongue, a fertile breeding ground for the
offensive foul odor causing GERMS.
In an article published in the Journal of the American Dental
Association (April 1996), Dr. Mel Rosenberg cites 6 research
references in concluding that: In 85% of people with bad breath the
bad odor originates in the mouth. On the investigative news program
"20/20", ABC News Medical Editor Dr. Johnson explained that most bad
breath is caused by a type of bacteria in the back of the tongue.
Furthermore, according to Dr. Price, who was interviewed on the
Today Show, 90% of bad breath is from the mouth itself.
2. Please tell me more about those disgusting bacteria in the
Did you know that more than 170 different types of bacteria
flourish in our mouth? These bacteria feed on bits of decaying food
particles left on teeth and tongue after meals. When the bacteria
devour these "leftovers" they produce volatile sulfur compounds
which are what make breath smell so foul.
Many of these bacteria are anaerobic which means they can not
live in the presence of oxygen. Although our mouth is exposed to
oxygen every time we breathe, these bacteria hide in places where
oxygen can not reach - in the deep ridges and valleys on the back of
the tongue and the space between the teeth and gums.
This is why scraping away the foul smell generating germs and
other decaying oral debris from the tongue is crucial to eliminating
not only Bad Breath, but also gum disease, dental decay, plaque,
sore throats and colds. The "Bad Breath Terminator" will also remove
tobacco tar stains and medication build-up.
3. I brush regularly. Isn't that enough to get rid of my bad
Ordinary brushing fails to entirely dislodge the plaque and
mucus. The toothbrush is designed specifically to remove plaque from
teeth. It is not designed to clean the tongue's histological
Brushing the teeth only, reduces mouth odor by only 25%. If you
tried to clean the back of your tongue with a toothbrush, you would
find it ineffective and potentially painful. In fact, recent studies
have shown an effectiveness of 20-30% bacteria removal with a
toothbrush compared to nearly 90% bacteria removal with the Tongue
Scraper such as "Bad Breath Terminator".
Toothpaste contains soap (Sodium Laurel Sulfate), an abrasive,
and fluoride, all of which are not good for the tongue's surface and
do not kill and remove bacteria that cause Bad Breath.
4. How effective are mouthwashes, sprays, internal capsules
and breath mints?
Mouthwashes, sprays, internal capsules and regular mint candies
are considered to be ineffective in combating bad breath. They just
temporarily mask the odor! Recent studies have shown that
mouthwashes only temporarily mask the foul odor of bad breath for as
little as 10 minutes after brushing.
In fact, mouthwashes with alcohol can make the situation even
worse by drying out the mouth. Don't be fooled by the burning
sensation - it is your own cells in pain, not the wounded bacteria
screaming in your mouth.
5. Does chewing gum help?
The limited efficacy of chewing gum is probably due to the effect
of salivation, combined with the cleansing effect of mastication. A
very important fact to remember when battling bad breath is that
saliva is our friend. Saliva washes away bacteria and dissolves the
foul smelling sulfur compounds.
However, chewing gum has its downsides. Firstly, it can't
effectively eliminate the foul smell generating germs, decaying food
particles and other oral debris from the ridges and valleys on the
back of the tongue. Excessive chewing can also screw up the joints
connecting your jaw.
6. No matter how often I brush, floss, use mouthwash, or avoid
problem foods, halitosis (bad breath) persists all day and every
day, what should I do?
Dental research indicates that tongue cleaning with an effective
tongue scraper such as "Bad Breath Terminator" along with your
regular brushing and flossing reduces bad breath by more than 90%.

decaying food particles from the valleys and ridges on the back of
the tongue for a Fresher, Cleaner and Healthier Mouth.
