Bad breath or halitosis

As many as half of all people sometimes suffer from bad breath. Bad breath can be caused by, for example, consuming certain foods such as garlic, onions, alcohol, coffee, but also smoking. In these examples, Halitosis is not yet spoken of, because it is only present temporarily.

If bad breath/odor is present for a longer period of time, it is called Halitosis. This is often caused by large amounts of bacteria present on the back of the tongue. These bacteria secrete, among other things, sulfur-like gases that are responsible for that unpleasant odor. Bad breath can also be caused by poor oral hygiene, where a lot of plaque remains between the teeth or under the gums.

For the correct diagnosis and to determine what is causing the bad breath/odor, making an appointment with the dentist or dental hygienist is highly recommended. This also to exclude that, for example, other diseases such as stomach, liver, kidney problems, cavity infections, diabetes, etc. can be a possible cause of an unpleasant smell/taste.

Preventing bad breath/odor

In addition to daily brushing of the teeth, interdental cleaning and cleaning the tongue with the Lactona Tongue Cleaner, rinsing with Lactona ClearBreath can significantly reduce bad breath.

Mouthwash or mouth spray

The unique composition of Lactona ClearBreath mouthwash or mouth spray neutralizes the volatile sulfur compounds and kills the bacteria. These sulfur compounds and bacteria are responsible for the unpleasant smell and taste in the mouth.

The special composition of the mouthwash ensures a longer and better adhesion of the liquid to teeth, tongue and gums. The effective ingredients can thus do their job optimally and reduce the bacteria responsible for bad breath. ClearBreath also reduces plaque and tartar in the mouth.

Lactona tongue cleaner

A tongue scraper or tongue cleaner is an important effective aid against halitosis and the most effective way to rid the tongue of deposits and bacteria. Using a tongue cleaner works better than brushing the tongue alone.
