U.S. DenTek introduces the Breath Remedy™ Tongue Brush to help eliminate bad breath.
Recent clinical studies have shown that up to 85 percent of halitosis is caused by the accumulation of bacteria on the tongue. This bacteria, produced by the breaking down of food molecules and tissue cells in the mouth, creates volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) and may even lead to gum disease.
The tongue brush features a patented, low-profile design. It comfortably reaches the very back of the tongue where odor-causing bacteria primarily reside, without producing the "gag" reflex. In addition, a tongue "scraper" ridge at the front of the brush gently and effectively ensures that bacteria are targeted and removed from the mouth.
For double protection against bad breath, the experts at U.S. DenTek recommend using the tongue brush together with Breath Remedy™ Tongue Spray with OraSan®. OraSan® contains oxygen atoms to neutralize and oxygenate odor-producing VSCs.
The entire line of Breath Remedy™ products - including the Tongue Brush, Tongue Spray, Mouth Rinse, Tongue Scraper, Toothpaste, Breath Drops, and a Fresh Breath Kit - is available in the dental sections of stores nationwide. Consumers may call (800) 433-6835 to order products or find a nearby retailer.
