What is Solid Oxygenating Mouthwash?

It’s a mouthwash to get rid of bad breath.

Kia ora, I’m Laura and I’m a dental hygienist. I created Solid Oxygenating Mouthwash about 10 years ago because my patients would complain that typical mouthwashes didn’t work, or only worked for a few minutes.

Google will most likely tell you that breath odour is caused by not brushing or flossing frequently enough.

But, I found that often the people who were worried about their breath had beautiful oral hygiene. Their gums and teeth looked good, and they made sure to brush and (sometimes 😆) floss.

Which made it more likely that their tongue was the culprit.

Our tongues are made up of tiny little protrusions called papillae. Bacteria, waste products and food debris can get caught between these papillae.

Genetics, diet, and oral hygiene determine how much tongue coating each person builds up on daily basis.

Get Rid Of Bad Breath

Tongue check: Look for a whitish or yellowish coating on your tongue.

If you’re a person who does build up a decent tongue coating, this is the most likely cause of bad breath. You can easily manage this by scraping your tongue each morning, and following with Solid’s oxygenating mouthwash.

Bonus tip: A dry mouth can also contribute to bad breath. Drink a glass of water first thing in the morning to kickstart your salivary glands into action. Then stay well-hydrated throughout the day. Especially if you have a job where you talk a lot!

Hygienist recommendations

It’s also a mouthwash for gum hygiene

Just like your teeth, your gums do NOT like plaque.

Plaque is the bacteria-filled, white sticky stuff that forms daily on all the surfaces of our teeth. If this is not effectively removed, it can start to irritate the gumline over time. You’ll notice bleeding, puffy or red gums. This is called gingivitis.

In some people, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, which can eventually lead to loose teeth.

The recipe for healthy, happy gums is fairly simple for most people: brush 2x a day and floss or use interdental brushes 1x a day.

No mouthwash can replace toothbrushing or cleaning in between the teeth, as that plaque needs to be physically removed. However, an oxygenating mouthwashes can be a useful addition. Check with your dentist or hygienist if using an oxygenating mouthwash could benefit you.

That’s two ways Solid Oxygenating Mouthwash can improve your oral hygiene.

You may notice that Solid mouthwash comes in a smaller bottle than most mouthwashes. That’s because you only need to use the equivalent of 5ml or 1 teaspoon each time. One bottle = 50 swishes. And remember, you you can return that bottle to us for refill and reuse!
