Although brushing, flossing, and using a good mouthwash is essential for a healthy mouth, they do not always address certain causes of bad breath.

At Forestream Dental, Dr. Evola and the team offer the BreathRX System to help address what you might not be able to get with your regular dental routine. Though your usual routine might be successful at killing and getting rid of bacteria in your mouth, frequently, the waste products from bacteria, called volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs), cause the foul odor.

The BreathRX system comes in three components that you use instead of your everyday products. The toothpaste and mouth rinse that come with the system are specially formulated to remove the VSCs. However, they provide the same tartar and plaque-controlling benefits as many other kinds of toothpaste and rinses.

Additionally, the BreathRX system also comes with a specially designed tongue scraper. Often overlooked as a source of bad breath, your tongue can host a lot of bacteria and associated waste products that might be keeping you from having the fully healthy mouth you can. The tongue scraper helps to remove these from your tongue, getting you closer to having fresher breath.

Along with flossing, the BreathRX system can help you achieve a healthier mouth and fresher breath. While the BreathRX is more effective than other oral care products, it takes good dental habits to see the full benefit. It is important to know that regardless of the product used, and proper oral hygiene habits are essential for both the healthiness of your mouth and the freshness of your breath.

If you have bad breath that does not seem to go away with your regular oral hygiene routine, call Dr. Evola at Forestream Dental in Depew, NY, at 716-656-8686 or visit to schedule an appointment to see how BreathRX can help.
