Happy National Fresh Breath Month: Free Tongue Cleaners for All

Don’t forget your free tongue cleaner!

As you might know ProFresh is celebrating National Fresh Breath Day all August long, and we’re giving out presents! Keep bad breath at bay with a free ProFresh Tongue Cleaner. Tongue cleaning  is one of the easiest and most effective ways to fight halitosis and plaque.

What does a tongue cleaner do?

Using a tongue cleaner removes a nasty coating of “biofilm” from the mouth. Biofilm is that white stuff we see on our tongues, and one of the leading causes of bad breath. It may look harmless but it’s actually a collection of oral debris that’s made up of, dead skin cells and blood cells, carbohydrates, sugars, and other digestible bacterial matter. And not only does it cause bad breath, but also causes plaque levels in the mouth to skyrocket. Don’t fear though, tongue cleaning twice a day before brushing can seriously reduce your levels of biofilm, leaving your mouth clean and breath fresh.

5 Tongue Cleaning Tips

  1. Gently clean your tongue twice-a-day, BEFORE brushing. Start from the back and pull forward. This ensures that the film won’t be spread to other areas of the mouth while you brush.
  2. Reach the furthest part of your tongue that you can without making yourself gag. A lot of biofilm likes to sit on the back of the tongue where normal brushing doesn’t reach.
  3. Use an activated mouth rinse like ProFresh before you clean your tongue. ProFresh kills any anaerobic bacteria and organic matter present in the mouth. Using ProFresh rinse before your tongue cleaner ensures that you are sweeping away all of the bad breath causing debris in your mouth.
  4. Replace your tongue cleaner every 2-3 months. Just like your toothbrush, eventually tongue cleaners need to be replaced. Always use a new tongue cleaner if you’ve just been sick.
  5. If you lose your free tongue cleaner, or you forget it at home, try using a spoon to remove biofilm.

It’s National Fresh Breath Day All Month Long at ProFresh

It’s Christmas in August! Well it is at ProFresh anyway…

On Wednesday August 6th, the United States will celebrate our favorite holiday, National Fresh Breath Day. But one day wasn’t enough for us, so we decided to celebrate for the entire month.

Throughout August ProFresh will celebrate National Fresh Breath Month by giving away free products, special promotions, and tips to keep your breath fresh and your mouth at its healthiest.

Give Your Mouth a Makeover in 5 Steps

Get ready for National Fresh Breath Day by giving yourself an oral health makeover. Here are 5 simple tips to ensure that you’re on the right track to perfect health.

1. Give Your Dental Tools a Fresh Start

Soak your toothbrush, tongue cleaner, and flosser in Activated ProFresh Oral Rinse. The active chlorine dioxide in ProFresh kills all bacteria and organic compounds that like to live on your dental tools. Soaking them in a clean glass with the rinse for 5-10 minutes does the trick.

2. At Home Debridement

Gently brush and scrape all soft surfaces in the mouth. This helps to eliminate free floating anaerobic bacteria and Volatile Sulfur Compounds that can build up in areas not regularly brushed.

It also helps to remove plaque that may have accumulated in pockets of your mouth. This goes a long way to ensuring fresh breath and a healthy mouth. To make your debriding more effective, hold ProFresh Oral Rinse in your mouth with brushing and scraping. This will ensure that all of the bacteria has been eliminated

3. Check for Sensitive Spots.

If your mouth or gums are sensitive make sure to give special attention to those places when brushing and flossing. Be gentle when clearing away debris in these hot spots. You can also apply ProFresh Oral Rinse to a sterile gauze pad and rest it in-between your lip and gums. This will reduce sensitivity and swelling. If pain persists call your dentist, this can be a sign of more serious dental problems.

4. Use an Antibacterial Oral Rinse

Use a cleansing oral rinse, like ProFresh, twice daily to prevent the buildup of plaque and free floating bacteria in the mouth. Using a cleansing oral rinse not only kills the bacteria that cause bad breath (VSCs), but also the organic compounds that make up plaque.

If plaque is left unchecked it can turn into tartar causing the gum tissue to swell, eventually cause gingivitis.

5. When Was Your Last Dental Checkup?

If it’s been more than 6 months since your last cleaning its time to make an appointment!

Performing an oral care makeover is a simple and healthy way to get ready for National Fresh Breath Day. Feel free to contact us on our Facebook page for more information about how to maintain a healthy mouth. Check back throughout August for the latest offerings and info from the ProFresh team. Breathe easy and smile!
