Tongue Scrapers

I bought new toothbrushes for the household last week and normally I get the same brand each time. I made a change because of my child. She has a problem with bad breath at times and said she saw a commercial about a toothbrush that had a tongue scraper. Well the thing was about four dollars but if you have a child asking for a toothbrush, you buy it even if it costs ten dollars!!

Well, I bought it and hopefully it will do the trick. She uses mouthwash as well, but she seems to always have an odorous mouth. That is just the way it is for some. Sulfur and all that. In most cases it is the malodorous volatile sulfur compounds (VSC's) produced by anaerobic bacteria that are the actual cause of a person's breath problems. Using a toothpaste that contains VSC neutralizing agents such as chlorine dioxide or zinc can help to alleviate these problem. Now I have not seen any sort of toothpaste with zinc and that sure does not sound like it would taste good either. We will stick with the toothbrush, peroxide and baking soda for now.

You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.
