By combining extraordinarily powerful ingredients that have been specially formulated by bacteriologist and dentist Dr. Harold Katz, TheraBreath Oral Rinse Mouthwash eliminates harmful oral bacteria that contribute to tonsil stone formation. Because tonsil stones are primarily composed of anaerobic bacteria that thrive on mouth debris (food particles, mucus and dead tissue cells), the ability to rapidly transform a stagnant, unsanitary mouth into one that is sufficiently hydrated and oxygenated is vital to preventing foul-smelling tonsil stones.

Ingredients in TheraBreath Oral Rinse Mouthwash

Cultivating in tiny but deep fissures called tonsillar crypts, tonsil stones remain embedded in tonsils until they are manually removed with a toothbrush, cotton swap or water pik. Removing tonsil stone constituents from the mouth so that these annoying, calcified chunks of oral detritus cannot form within tonsils is accomplished by thoroughly rinsing each day with TheraBreath Oral Rinse Mouthwash.  Listed below are active ingredients used in TheraBreath Oral Rinse.

  1. PEG-12 Dimethicone—also known as polyethylene glycol, PEG-12 Dimethicone is included in TheraBreath’s mouthwash because of its lubricating properties and strong ability to reduce dry mouth conditions that are conducive to anaerobic bacteria growth. Moreover, according to an article in Cancer Research by D.E. Corpet et al, PEG exhibiting high-molecule weight characteristics may have be used as a future preventative for colorectal cancer.
  2. Sorbitol—as a non-sugar sweetener that is also nutritive, sorbitol gives TheraBreath Oral Rinse Mouthwash a pleasant taste that does not burn or leave a disagreeable aftertaste. Sorbitol provides 2.5 kilocalories of energy per gram and can also be found in diet foods and sugar-free chewing gum. Safe and quickly metabolized by the body, sorbitol is easily removed by the kidneys and presents no harm to the body.
  3. Zinc Gluconate—to remove any chance of a metallic or bitter taste remaining after using this oral rinse, Dr. Katz has included zinc gluconate to enhance flavor and also help reduce the bacteria population responsible for tonsil stones and the build-up of calculus and tartar. Tartar is a hard, yellowish layer of bacteria that adheres to teeth (especially where the teeth meet the gums) which causes tooth decay and gum disease unless professionally scraped away by a dentist. In addition, zinc gluconate is also used as a supplement to treat acne and in lozenges as a way to relieve cold symptoms such as sore throat and post nasal drip.
  4. Ammonium Glycyrrhizate—another taste-enhancing, hydrating agent found in TheraBreath Oral Rinse Mouthwash, ammonium glycyrrhizate originates from licorice and is chemically classified as a cluster of esters, acids and salts. Its ability to stimulate saliva flow directly inhibits formation of tonsil stones and reproduction of anaerobic bacterial.
  5. Sodium Bicarbonate—not only is sodium bicarbonate highly effective at neutralizing oral acids that promote excessive bacterial growth associated with tonsil stones, it also supplements TheraBreath’s mouthwash with antiseptic qualities beneficial to preventing infections. Sodium bicarbonate also helps keep teeth white by removing plaque aided by free radical enzyme activity.
  6. Sodium Benzoate—Dr. Katz includes sodium benzoate in his exclusive mouthwash formula due to its “bacteriostatic” properties, i.e., it stops anaerobic bacteria from reproducing regardless of how much mouth debris is available to consume. Also used in antibiotics and antiseptics to prevent bacterial growth, sodium benzoate is a natural biological agent found in prunes, apples, cranberries and cinnamon.
  7. Sodium Citrate—necessary to systemically alkalize sodium bicarbonate, sodium citrate contributes to making the mouth less acidic, which powerfully counteracts tonsil stone formation and eliminates severe bad breath
  8. Polysorbate 20—as a coconut oil derivative, polysorbate 20 is an emulsifier/wetting agent that hydrates and soothes a dry, burning mouth. It is also frequently used in combination with sorbitol to sweeten the taste of a mouthwash without the need for sweeteners that can contribute to tooth decay and tonsil stones.
  9. Tea Tree Leaf Oil and Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice—recent clinical investigations concerning the benefits of tea tree leaf oil has found it contains antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial qualities that may represent a viable remedy for potentially toxic bacteria as MRSA and some forms of Staphylococcus aureus. Additionally, tea tree leaf oil provides an effective cure for recurring canker sores, which are oral ulcers contributing to tonsil stone formation because of the blood and dead tissues they often release. Used to give TheraBreath Oral Rinse Mouthwash a cool feel when gargled, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice also provides additional antibacterial support when used in conjunction with tea tree leaf oil.

The Most Important Ingredient in ThereBreath Oral Rinse Mouthwash

Dr. Katz’s patented proprietary blend of sodium chlorite known as OXYD-8® is the determining ingredient found in TheraBreath’s mouthwash that makes this product stand out from all remaining mouthwashes or rinses. OXYD-8 reverses dry mouth and excessive anaerobic bacterial growth by enriching the mouth with oxygen molecules that not only stimulate saliva flow but also keeps hard-to-reach places like the back of the throat and around the tonsils sufficiently aerated. In healthy, clean conditions created by the presence of OXYD-8, anaerobic bacteria, mouth detritus, tonsil stones and bad breath cannot exist.

For many people, the worst part about suffering from tonsil stones is the embarrassingly severe halitosis they cause due to their composition. Anaerobic bacteria emit gases called volatile sulfur compounds as they busily consume protein rich food sources (food particles, mucus, blood and dead cells) contaminating all parts of the mouth. When exacerbated by dry mouth conditions, this type of oxygen-hating bacteria flourish uncontrollably, emitting huge amounts of foul-smelling, sulfuric gases that are only temporarily masked by other name brand breath fresheners. Unless the bacteria are eliminated, chronic halitosis will remain, along with recurring tonsil stones and the potential for accelerated tooth decay and gum disease.

In addition to the many beneficial ingredients found in TheraBreath Oral Rinse Mouthwash, Dr. Katz does not include alcohol, saccharine or sodium laurel sulfate. All these substances are considered desiccants and promote oral dehydration that leads to a chronically dry, airless mouth. Sodium laurel sulfate is also a known to promote canker sore appearances because of its abrasiveness to sensitive mouth tissues. Not only is SLS used in cleaning solutions and shampoos as a foaming agent, it also increases the acidic level of the saliva which directly encourages tooth enamel demineralization, cavities and gingivitis.

TheraBreath Oral Rinse Mouthwash is the most effective oral hygiene product to use if you are desperately searching for a non-surgical method that will permanently put an end to tonsil stones and bad breath. By incorporating naturally dynamic ingredients and his exclusive, patented OXYD-8, Dr. Harold Katz and TheraBreath has provided the ultimate mouthwash that is capable of eliminating rather than masking bad breath as well as obstructing formation of tonsil stones.
