Coffee Smells Great, But What About Your Breath?

For many people, there is nothing better than the smell of slow roasted coffee that hits you when you walk through the doors of Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts or your favorite local coffee shop.

Freshly-brewed coffee can be a welcome treat on your way to work, or at other times throughout the day. Unfortunately, as awesome as coffee smells in your mug, it doesn’t always leave a great smell in your mouth. Why does coffee cause bad breath?

The reason for stinky coffee breath is the same reason other smelly foods like onions and garlic can cause breath to smell bad – sulfur gas! Sulfurous compounds in coffee stick to your teeth and mouth and give off a stinky smell. Not only that, but the caffeine in coffee can slow saliva production and dry out your mouth. A dry mouth can cause bad breath because saliva helps to kill bacteria and germs. Saliva also digests food particles found in your mouth. A lack of saliva means bacteria will grow and consume those food particles, releasing more volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) that are perceived as bad breath odors.

Eliminate AND Prevent Bad Breath

The key to getting rid of bad breath is eliminating the sulfur gas in your mouth. The good news is that zinc ion technology eliminates sulfur AND prevents the return of sulfur for 12 hours. That means you can stop regular or chronic bad breath, and morning breath forever just by rinsing twice a day with a zinc ion-based oral rinse.

Although there are a number of zinc-based oral rinses, only SmartMouth Activated Oral Rinses use zinc ion technology. Activation of the zinc ions, which takes place when SmartMouth’s clinically proven, unique two liquid formula is combined, goes beyond simply killing the sulfur gas to actually preventing it from coming back for a full 12 hours. That’s something other zinc-based mouthwashes just can’t claim.

So try SmartMouth! Enjoy your coffee with the peace of mind that goes with knowing that with just two rinses a day, you’ll never, ever have bad breath.
