Bad breath- true that mouthwash is a short term remedy because most people do not realize that mouthwash not only kills bad bacteria but also good bacteria that we need. I take Blis K12 probiotics. It crowds out the bacteria that causes bad breath...much better long term remedy. Look at www.blis.co.nz how it all works.

I have just read a really interesting report from a guy called Chris Walker who said mouthwash is definitely not to be used. Read it for free here:

People use mouthwash to get rid of bad breath. But mouthwash cannot provide a long term solution for bad breath problem. I used to use mouthwash to get rid of my bad mouth odor. But when I consulted with a dentist of Brueggen Dental Implant Center, Houston, I came to know that mouthwash has several side effects. The most common side effect is that it can cause irritation of the mucous membranes in the mouth. Since then I always try to avoid the use of mouthwash.

I had bad breath for 10 years. Finally I have found the solution. It is TheraBreath oral care products.

Mouthwash is good, but you have to be careful with it. Specially with children! I got advice from my children's dentist about them using mouthwash. I always take my kids to the pediatric dentist in Loveland, CO. back when we lived there! http://awesomepedodontics.com/Dental-Services...

If you really want to combat bad breath, you should have your teeth cleaned at least twice a year. All dental practices offer cleanings: http://wrightsmiles.com/southlake-gentle-fami...
A cleaning helps remove plaque and harmful bacteria, instead of temporarily masking the issue.

As there are so many products in the market, stating the effectiveness of it, you always need to be sure about its quality. Mouthwashes generally containing alcohol, so while using such products, always seek advice from an expert dentist.

Hi,

According to findings in the Dental Journal, use of mouthwash on a daily basis, it is a significant risk factor for developing neck and head cancers. It can also increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes by killing off good bacteria that help blood vessels relax.

Hey,
I had bad breath problem from last 8 years, and since I have stated taking care of my eating habits, reduce food intake after 7pm and started using Listerine mouthwash from last few years, things are really started working out for me.

Mouthwash is good, but it is only the temporary solution to get rid of bad breath. I have seen parents who always remain worried for their kids and finally went to the pediatric dentist those provide cleanings. For more details visit: https://dentistsinmobileal.com/
