How to use Solid Oxygenating Mouthwash for fresh breath
First off, let’s look at what causes bad breath.
Breath odour can be cause by gum disease and tooth decay. Another possible cause is not brushing or flossing frequently enough.
If you’ve had the thumbs up from your dentist that your gums and teeth are looking good, and you brush and floss on a regular basis, then it’s likely that your tongue is the culprit.
Our tongues are made up of tiny little protrusions called papillae. Bacteria, their waste products and food debris can get caught between these papillae. This results in the formation of a “bacterial carpet” on the middle and back of the tongue.
Genetics, diet, and oral hygiene determine how much of a tongue coating each person builds up on daily basis.
Self check: Open your mouth and look in the mirror. If you can see a whitish or yellowish coating, you may be prone to a heavier tongue coating, and possibly breath odour.

How to use Solid Oxygenating Mouthwash to improve teeth and gum hygiene
Solid oxygenating mouthwash can help reduce the amount of plaque bacteria in the mouth.
Plaque is the bacteria-filled white sticky stuff that forms daily on our teeth. If it is not effectively removed, it can start to irritate the gums. You may notice bleeding, puffy or red gums. This is called gingivitis – which literally means “inflammation of the gums”.
If left untreated, in some people gingivitis can progress to periodontitis. This means “inflammation of the periodontium”, which is the jaw bone that holds our teeth in place.
A solid oral care routine of twice daily toothbrushing and once daily flossing is the best way to keep your gums in tip-top shape. No mouthwash can replace toothbrushing or flossing, but it can be a helpful addition in some cases. Check with your dentist if an oxygenated mouthwash could be helpful for you.
