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.
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!
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!
