Most bad breath comes from the bacteria in our Oral Cavity. It is the perfect incubator for bacteria. However just killing bacteria does not eliminate Bad Breath.
To truly eliminate Bad Breath you must kill bacteria plus the toxins that bacteria generate called Volatile Sulfur Compounds (VSC). The rotten egg smell (hydrogen sulfide) and the barnyard smell (methyl mercaptan) are VSC’s. Most Bad Breath solutions deal only with the bacteria and do nothing to reduce VSC’s. VSCs’ also play a role in Periodontal disease by facilitating a bacterial assault on the tissues. Using OraCare 2 times a day every day can help control the #1 dental patient complaint. The following chart and University of Iowa Study shows how the leading Bad Breath eliminators do killing Bacteria and VSC’s.
