February is National Fresh Breath Month!

Treat your tongue to a fresh breath fix

Rather than getting in a twist about smelly breath before a big date, treat your tongue to a fresh breath fix this February. When it comes to bad breath, experts agree that the tongue can often be the culprit.

 “We recommend tongue scraping as part of a regular oral care routine,” says Stella Lamprecht, President of the Oral Hygienists’ Association of South Africa. “The surface of the tongue has tiny grooves where bacteria and plaque can accumulate. Removing the bacteria and debris on the tongue is one of the simplest ways to ensure fresh breath and a healthy mouth. Everyone, from children to older people, should incorporate it into their oral care on a daily basis. Cleaning the tongue at night can help prevent ‘morning’ breath.”

To ensure a healthy mouth, fresher breath, and a brighter smile! Try the following products:

  •  Sunstar GUM Tongue Cleaner – effectively helps remove plaque and food debris from the surface of the tongue. The two sides provide a dual action - bristles to gently brush and a serrated edge to wipe the surface clean.
  •  Sunstar GUM Technique+ toothbrush  - designed to provide advanced cleaning, even below the gumline. The non-slip quad grips are positioned so that the bristles are effortlessly placed at the 45-degree angle recommended for optimal below-the-gumline cleaning. The Dome Trim® bristles are clinically proven to clean below the gumline reducing plaque, gingival inflammation, and bleeding. The extended SuperTip eliminates plaque from hard to reach places.
  • GUM Original White toothpaste - helps remove stains and prevent their reappearance without damaging enamel. It contains fluoride to reinforce tooth enamel, as well as vitamins for healthier gums. It contains low-abrasive micro-silica to gently remove surface stains and a unique StainClear agent to help dissolve stains in hard-to-reach areas.
  • GUM Original White floss  made with micronized silica to help remove stains between teeth and provides effective interdental plaque control. 
  •  GUM Original White mouth rinse - alcohol-free Sunstar GUM Original White Rinse contains StainClear to help remove stains from in-between the teeth and the tiny crevices in tooth enamel. Made with a patented combination of fluoride, Isomalt, and vitamins, Original White Rinse delivers advanced mineralisation for stronger and shinier teeth, helping prevent further staining while strengthening gums and teeth.

“Brushing correctly, flossing in-between the teeth and cleaning the tongue are the cornerstones of effective oral care,” says Grobbelaar. “If plaque and food debris are not properly removed from the various parts of the mouth they break down and release foul-smelling gases, irritate the gums and potentially cause disease.”

PS: When you sign up for Ivohealth’s newsletter this February they’ll donate a Sunstar GUM toothbrush to the Dental Wellness Trust’s oral health education programme in Khayelitsha, Cape Town. To donate a brush simply sign up on www.ivohealth.co.za/contact-us before 28 February.
