Please get the home maintenance products out. Treatments are great but would like home maintenance ability. Thanks
Cant say I ever knew "Bad Breath treatment" existed other than the usual remedies we all typically use. Bad Breath Institute addressed bad breath like a disease and the results are simply amazing. I really liked the application of science behind the procedure, which was completely painless. Its been a week since treatment, and my morning breath is MUCH better. When I brush my teeth in the morning, the freshness from the toothpaste lasts much longer. The difference is night and day. I have set a monthly schedule for continued treatment. I was told the rate of which one should get re-treatment depends on the severity of the bad breath (case by base basis based on bacteria on your tongue I believe) which I find pretty interesting. I always felt a little insecure about my breath when going out on dates or conducting interviews for work, especially if I forgot my pack of gum. With this treatment its not a concern anymore, gum or not my breath is never something to worry about. I highly recommend.
Many patients who visit our clinic are under the misimpression that there is something terribly wrong with them. Many times the problem is not the person concerned with halitosis but the way the industry has been dealing with removing and reducing bad breath.
Bad breath just like body odor is caused by bacteria. This is why there can never be a cure for bad breath. The day that we can cure body odor where we do not need to take shower anymore, would be the day we can cure bad breath. Just like the body, the mouth which is the source of 90% of bad breath needs to be washed as well. However unlike the body, the industry dealing with bad breath and fresh breath has been guiding us to address bad breath via breath freshening agents (gums, mints, mouthwash, toothpaste etc.). This approach is incorrect. Breath fresheners are perfume like products and they mask bad breath. The day we can only spray perfume on our bodies and not need to take shower anymore would be the day that breath fresheners would work as a bad breath removing agent.
To achieve fresh breath, we need to first remove bad breath. To achieve a pleasant smelling body, we need to first wash our body and remove body odor. This is the missing piece in the world of dealing with bad breath for which Bad Breath Institute® has a proprietary solution for. The processes of removing body odor and bad breath are very similar; they cannot be product based. They have to be procedure (treatment) based. Washing one’s body to remove odor causing bacteria is a procedure. A similar approach should be implemented to removing bad breath; it must be procedure based not just product based. Hence the need to first remove bad breath via our proprietary Airigation® treatment.
For those asking the question “But I brush my teeth twice daily?” Brushing is for oral- hygiene and having healthier teeth. It is as a side-effect of the breath freshening agent in the toothpaste that we tend to think tooth brushing is for removing bad breath and achieving fresh breath. If you brush without toothpaste, you will realize there is no freshening effect.
We all suffer a bit of bad breath or halitosis from time to time. The Bad Breath Institute in the US says that 99 per cent of us suffer from the condition when we wake up. This is because, during the night, we don’t produce the necessary saliva to wash away the bad bacteria that causes bad breath.
So you have bad breath. Here’s what to do about your hellish halitosis
Bad breath is the ultimate mood killer. It can ruin a first date in less than a second, but it can plague sufferers for years.
When someone says to you, ‘Got a mint?’, it can mean one of two things. One: perhaps they just fancy a mint, or two (and far more likely): they think you need one yourself because of your stinky breath.
We all suffer a bit of bad breath – or halitosis – from time to time. The Bad Breath Institute (yes, it exists) in the US says that 99 per cent of us suffer from the condition when we wake up. This is because, during the night, we don’t produce the necessary saliva to wash away the bad bacteria that causes bad breath.
Our patients are happily reporting that the Airigation® treatment is not only effective after eating spicy and garlic food but also very effective as a preventive treatment before consuming such food. Therefore it has proven very effective to get an Airigation® treatment before a hot and spicy dinner/date as the treatment effectively battles embarrassingly strong odor containing food.
We are continuously getting updates from our patients that the Airigation® treatment is increasing their social self-confidence as well as magnifies the effects of breath fresheners used after spicy food consumption.
As evidenced in some of our testimonials, even "Gumbo" is no match for Airigation®!
Bad breath is personal, especially when it is everyday bad breath and non-chronic halitosis. Bad breath to the person concerned and affected is simply; bad breath.
There is no right or wrong level of bad breath. It is similar to how we evaluate body odor. Some people can go a few days without taking shower and others have to take shower everyday and some twice daily. This is based on how one perceives body odor and how sensitive he/she is about it.
Likewise, certain individuals are more sensitive and self-conscious about their bad breath than others. There is no scale or right measure of sensitivity to bad breath. Bad breath can be subjective and be perceived differently by different people. This is why my non-invasive Airigation® treatment is easily applicable to patients. It can be applied as a treatment or as a grooming procedure. Whether on a recommended basis or as needed by clients and can be performed as often as the individual desires it.
Patients who seek voluntarily to correct dental disease such as cavities, gum disease or even misaligned and discolored teeth usually have a much higher self-confidence levels than patients who only go to the dentists out of necessity or pain associated with a tooth or a dental condition.
A bright smile, a nicely aligned dentition and a fresher breath can significantly improve one’s personal confidence as well as social acceptance.
Thanks, your treatments and influence have made me stop smoking finally, started living a healthier life since now I can play sports better as my stamina and breathing has improved and it has significantly improved my dating and relationship success... all because I wanted to improve the breathe I exhale.
It is commonly known that many do not like going to the dentist. One of the most common statements made to me by my patients is “Doc, I really don’t like going to the dentist”.
There are numerous reasons why fear is a factor when going to the dentist. It can be a prior bad experience, especially as a child, stories heard from others regarding their experiences and most importantly, fear of the unknown.
To compensate for any of these concerns, an important factor is to “show and tell” to patients what they can expect from their visits.
Since patients do not see (and many do not want to see) procedures performed and these procedures are performed by the dentist outside of patient’s control, many feel vulnerable and fearful. There are simple steps that can be taken by dentists to ensure patient comfort and a drastic reduction in patient’s “white knuckle” syndrome. This is a terminology which depicts a fearful patient grabbing the dental chair armrests so hard where his/her hands and knuckles turn white.
A few simple steps which we follow can be taken to reduce and eliminate patient fear and phobia.
As a global rule a dentist should treat every patient as he/she would treat his family members…with care!
I'd heard of your treatment that could cure bad breath and so I took the morning appointment. I arrived with half my latte finished. I took my seat an instantly was conscious about the coffee breath. Dr. Ohanessian described the procedure in detail so I knew what to expect during the treatment; it took very little time in the dental chair before the treatment was complete. As I sat up I experienced an unfamiliar "non taste" as the best way to describe it. I had to refrain from food or drink for a half hour...not a big deal since I had already had my morning coffee.
I went about the day having Mexican food with the extra onions and later having pasta with the extra garlic and none of those taste lingered. Actually, the next morning was the most incredible part. No bad morning breath. The treatment absolutely works! I didn't have to worry about gums to cover up coffee either. I'm definitely going back for another treatment.
With the recent increase in online dating, many who meet for the first time attempt to have their best presentation during this initial encounter. The checklist for this exciting rendezvous includes wallet, keys, perfume, make up as well as gums, mints and other breath fresheners.
A 5,000 member survey by match.com showed, when dating, more people are concerned about having fresh breath than stylish clothes, sexy fragrance and great hair…combined!
The nuisance in trying to have fresh breath is to continuously try to refresh ones breath with temporary breath fresheners before, during and after a date. The reason for this is that the common approach to having fresh and clean breath is to continuously cover up bad breath. This is why breath fresheners will have to be consumed continuously. This continuous consumption is not only annoying but also can get very expensive.
An example of this activity which I discuss with my patients is regarding bathing and body hygiene. When we feel dirty, we take off our old clothes, take a shower, put new clothes on and then use perfumes to enhance our smell. We do not continuously put perfume on many days old clothing without bathing!
Yet this is exactly what we have been conditioned to do when it comes to our mouth and bad breath. We are continuously covering up bad breath without first treating it. Our mouth needs a bath too! This is why it is important to first treat bad breath in order to achieve longer lasting fresh breath.
Treating bad breath should be a part of our daily regimen. Just as brushing teeth and getting professional teeth cleaning, your bad breath can be treated and controlled. This is why I recommend to my patients to have a professional treatment done before a special occasion, a wedding, a job interview or an exciting date.
Your attention will be shifted to enjoying this special event instead of worrying if your breath smells.
Many in the fields of Sales and marketing such as auto, real estate and mortgage, department store and retails clerks among other sales positions, are continuously speaking and communicating verbally with clients throughout the day. I myself as a dentist in close proximity with patients and continuously consulting clients know the nuisance of dry mouth leading to a tired and heavy breath. As the day goes on the bad breath gets heavier and our self-consciousness about the quality of our bad breath rises. Instead of focusing on our jobs we start to pucker our lips, increase our distance from others or keep popping mints to keep the bad breath from getting to our clients.
With proper understanding of how bad breath works, these situations can be controlled much easier.
First, one must control the level of bacteria that causes bad breath. Once the bacteria are brought under control, the heavy and tired feeling of our mouth will subside significantly. Combining such professional and at home treatments with proper hydration and nutritional snacking throughout the day will assist the talking sales person to have a lighter feeling mouth and a cleaner feeling breath.
Brushing and oral hygiene after every meal during work hours will significantly increase the effectiveness of a longer lasting fresh and clean breath as well.
Properly addressing bad breath could easily be implemented in our daily routines as a normal grooming and hygiene regimen such as hand washing.
