February 14 is a perfect
time for you to stop and evaluate what you are doing to keep your mouth in
good health. Nicole Dandeno, Denturist with Hanmer Denture Clinic,
explains that this is something that everyone should do – not just
people with dentures.
“We find ourselves close
to other people at many times during the day. Sometimes we are close
enough that we can smell the other person’s breath, and it isn’t
pleasant,” explained Nicole. “That bad breath can also be coming from
you. And while it is true that some bad breath is caused from the food we
eat or from medical conditions, there are some things that you can do to
reduce the risk of offending other people with your breath.”
Hanmer Denture Clinic
provides a three step Oxyfresh Program for patients and the general public
at their Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre location.
“Scrape, Brush, and Rinse is all it takes to provide
long-lasting, maximum breath control and confidence. A unique formula of
oxygene neutralizes odor causing germs and bacteria leaving your mouth
“kissably fresh” – just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Everything you need comes in
a convenient package that Nicole is holding in the photo.
The First Step in the
program is to SCRAPE your tongue with the tongue scraper to eliminate
odor-causing bacteria trapped in the follicles of your tongue.
The Second Step is to BRUSH
your teeth with super concentrated mint flavoured tooth past. A peas size
amount is all you need with this tooth paste.
The Third Step is to RINSE
for one minute with oxyfresh alcohol free mouth rinse to keep your breath
fresh for up to six hours.
The Oxyfresh products are
available at Hanmer Denture Clinic and when you drop in either Nicole
Dandeno or Doug Beswick will be happy to answer your questions. Remember,
you don’t need to have dentures to be concerned about your breath. “It
makes such a difference in how you approach your day when your mouth feels
clean and fresh. This program is good for all ages and is safe for both
dentures and natural teeth.”
