HOLD THE ALCOHOL, PLEASE
All-day fresh breath without the dryness and burn? Your swish is our command!
Dry Mouth affects one in four people, and 86% of those have dry mouth symptoms every day
What causes dry mouth?
Saliva is your body’s natural defense against harmful mouth bacteria. It’s rich in oxygen, and bacteria can’t survive in an oxygen-rich environment. If you’re not producing enough saliva, it makes the bacteria in your mouth grow and multiply quickly, leading to all those dry mouth symptoms that are driving you crazy!
Dry mouth itself is not a disease, but rather, a symptom of something else. To understand how to treat your dry mouth, it’s important to understand what could be causing yours. There could be many factors at play:
Radiation can damage the salivary glands, and chemo can change the consistency or amount of saliva.
Dry mouth is most often caused by medications, ranging from anti-depressants to allergies.
Hormonal changes during menopause or pregnancy can make your mouth feel persistently dry.
Dry mouth is more common for the aging population, affecting one-third of seniors' dental health.
Store-brand mouthwashes contain up to 26% alcohol. Sure, the alcohol kills the bacteria, but in the process, it dries out the mouth. This creates even more bacteria shortly after swishing! Using an alcohol-free mouthwash is key for a healthy mouth and fresh breath.
Or if you want to call out a specific product: If you're tired of the annoyance of dry mouth, we invite you to try our most popular alcohol-free mouthwash: Fresh Breath Lemon Mint Mouthwash with hydrating aloe and essential oils.
