For our Las Vegas patients who suffer from chronic bad breath, Nevada Dental Esthetics has great news – finally, a treatment for bad breath. While there will be a small percentage of bad breath cases that can’t be treated, the vast majority can be treated with the innovative BreathRX Fresh Breath System.
Dr. Bill Dorfman, a key developer in the BreathRX system, also founded the BreathRX company. You may have seen him on ABC’s popular show "Extreme Makeover." Dr. Dorfman is a cosmetic dentist who understands the importance of fresh breath. More importantly, he understands that bad breath can affect self-esteem as well as personal and business relationships.
The BreathRX system is based on the belief that bad breath is caused by waste products of bacteria found in the mouth and on the tongue. The bacterial waste products are volatile sulfur compounds, or VSCs. The BreathRX system kills the bacteria causing VSCs, leaving behind clean, fresh breath. Advocates of the Breath RX system believe that other products on the market just mask the odor, rather than eliminating it and its cause.
There are three main components to the BreathRX system:
- Brushing – The first step in obtaining long lasting fresh breath is to brush your teeth with the BreathRX toothpaste. It is fluoride based and also has tartar control ingredients.
- Scraping – Probably the most important step for fresh breath is to get rid of the bacteria and bacteria waste products where they start, on the tongue. Your kit comes with a special tongue scraper for this purpose.
- Rinsing – The BreathRX mouth rinse kills bacteria, washes away VSCs and also has a plaque- fighting agent. It’s alcohol- and sugar-free.
All of these together create a clean, healthy mouth with lasting fresh breath.
