I was given three of Dr. Katz's products. TheraBreath Toothpaste, Oral Rinse, & Lozenges. They are all guaranteed to cure bad breath when used as directed.
sodium laurel sulfate, a chemical added to nearly every toothpaste, shampoo and similar products on the market. If you haven't heard about SLS, you can read more about it here. For my son, SLS in his toothpaste causes painful mouth sores.
Not only are SLS-free toothpastes hard to find, the ones we have found generally have one thing in common - they taste like dirt. So as soon as we received the TheraBreath Toothpaste, my son and I had a joint tooth-brushing session to see what we thought.
As far as taste goes, there really was none (we received the mild flavor). The toothpaste didn't really taste that minty or anything. But it also didn't taste like dirt, and it wasn't bitter at all. Because it doesn't have SLS in it, the toothpaste doesn't suds up like most of them do, but that was fine with us. We both thought the toothpaste experiment went well. The bottle said we didn't have to rinse this toothpaste out of our mouth, which I was fine with (who needs one more step every morning?). But Justin said he felt weird not rinsing his mouth out after he brushed, so he went ahead and did it. Over all, we thought the toothpaste worked well.
The oral rinse was pretty tasteless, too. It pretty much felt like bubbly water. If you really want to get rid of that bad breath, you can use the oral rinse in several ways. As a rinse, as a gargle, and it even suggest dipping your floss in it. All I did was the rinse, but if I had a really hot date or something (funny, huh?!) I would have done all three.
What I liked best about all three products was the fact that they are made of natural ingredients. I love hygiene products that are made with natural ingredients, as I think that what we use in and on our bodies is very important to our health and well being. In case you're wondering, TheraBreath products are also produced using "green" practices and the company is part of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative.
