Bad Breath Mouthwash

Does mouthwash really get rid of bad breath? The short answer is yes, it can. The longer answer is mouthwash can get rid of bad breath, but only if you’re using the right mouthwash.

Typical mouthwashes tell you they will get rid of bad breath by fighting germs and bacteria in your mouth. Some also promise to give you minty breath. And they do, but only temporarily. If you really want a mouthwash to fight bad breath, you must try something completely different.

Mouthwash for bad breath relief

To get real bad breath relief, you need to fight the real cause of bad breath – sulfur gas. Bad breath is caused by volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) that are produced when germs and bacteria in the mouth consume protein particles.

These VSCs are another name for stinky sulfur gas that is perceived as bad breath. The only way to really get rid of bad breath is to stop the sulfur gas because although germs and bacteria can be eliminated temporarily, they will return, usually in about an hour. And when bacteria returns, stinky sulfur gas, aka bad breath, will return, too. That’s why the best mouthwash for bad breath relief works to eliminate and prevent sulfur gas, not bacteria and germs.

Bad breath mouthwash for halitosis

What about treating halitosis? Is there a bad breath mouthwash for halitosis, too? To really answer this question, we first must define halitosis. According to the American Dental Association, halitosis is chronic, or recurring, bad breath.

The ADA points to bacteria in the mouth from food particles, cavities, mucous and dry mouth (xerostomia) as the primary cause of halitosis. These and other issues create and encourage bacteria, and as the bacteria feed on protein in the mouth, sulfur gas is released, and bad breath, or halitosis, is the result. So, it’s really the sulfur gas released from bacteria that’s causing the bad breath, not the bacteria itself.

One way to get rid of sulfur gas is to kill germs and bacteria. After all, if there are no germs and bacteria in the mouth, there is no sulfur gas. The problem is that germs and bacteria, while easily killed, return just as easily to the hospitable conditions of the human mouth. That’s why ordinary mouthwashes that kill germs and bacteria are only effective against bad breath for a short time. In about an hour they start forming again and the sulfur gas process begins again, too.

However, there is a bad breath mouthwash for halitosis. It’s the only mouthwash that eliminates* and prevents sulfur gas for 24 hours for all day clean, fresh breath. Unlike most bad breath mouthwashes, SmartMouth Activated Oral Rinse features a patented two liquid formula. When mixed together, the Sulfur Eliminating Solution combines with the Activating Solution to release millions of zinc ions that prevent bacteria from releasing the sulfur gas that causes bad breath. Used twice a day, it will stop bad breath for 24 hours. It even works on morning breath!
