I just put a post up at the Toothy Grins blog on this topic.
Go check it out read it and share it
There is a great sale on physical products that are specially designed for ELIMINATING Bad Breath.
Since dental health is what I focus on, it would be wrong if I did not tell you about this sale.
It’s ending today, December 23rd 2013. I added that date so that you wouldn’t waste your time if it is past.
It might only serve to make you feel bad that you missed out and I don’t want that to happen.
You can save up to 64% and receive up to $170 in bonus products. Now, That’s a SALE~!
These products are powerful because they are oxygenated and pH balanced. If you need a further explanation of what that means, you can use the chat box to your lower right to ask me. Or, you can call me at 888-586-6849.
This was an interesting video and post. – You can also read the full post that inspired this video.
And, here is the video:
Link to the post this video describes:
I think it was around the year 2005 when I discovered a powerful tool that restored my periodontal health and saved me from a $1600 root scaling and planing treatment.
That experience was a life changer for me. I went on to make some more ‘discoveries’ and collected what I learned to write a book that can help people.
The name of that book is What You Should Know About Gum Disease. It was published in 2008. That was an exciting time. I still get phone calls from people who were or are still helped by the book.
I have to confess that I really blamed my dentist for not providing me with the right information. She was more than ready to charge me a hefty fee for a treatment that some doctors say can have negative long term effects.
Slowly, I began to realize what many other people have.
1. Professionals don’t always tell us ‘everything’ they know.
2. This problem exists across all professions, businesses, sciences and societies.
This is not a problem with any one group or profession. This is a problem of human nature.
That was a massive discovery for me. And nearly every day, I think about the implications of this realization.
In effect, we are all held back by knowledge that is known by ‘somebody’ but remains unknown by the masses.
If there were a way to collect this information and get it into mainstream awareness – we would live in a far different and probably much better world.
You can read more about the powerful tool I mentioned here: https://ToothyGrinsStore.com/h
If this tool can help you or someone else to improve your dental health and save you from even one expensive treatment or prevent the loss of even one tooth, it will have paid for itself many times over.
Then consider compounding that over a lifetime.
That’s why I saw this device is the gift of dental health that keeps on giving!
This holiday season, give someone you love, the gift of better dental health. Give the gift that keeps on giving!
And that problem can exist both inside and outside of the home. Let’s face it. Family members aren’t that keen on bad breath and neither are friends or colleagues.
It’s a real problem when you can’t smell your own breath, which is the case for most people.
That means you may not know unless you have a breath meter or a good friend or comfortable loved one who tells you about it!
As gross as it may sound, one test you can do is to lick the bank of your hand and wait a minute until it dries. Then you can sniff that spot. That will give you an approximate idea of how your breath is registering with others.
Toothy Grins Store is now offering the Bad Breath Starter Kit to give you the tools you need to ‘handle’ this problem.
Powerful oxygenated and pH balanced products work on the root cause of the problem unlike many commercial brands today that simply mask odor or make the problem worth by drying the mouth through the use of harsh chemicals or alcohols.
On this site, we also have the Bad Breath Resource Center, that can provide you with the information you need to understand this problem better. The info is available in both reading and video form.
Whatever you do, conquer this problem. Improve your chances for social and career success!

Now, we carry the reservoir for the Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator.
Here is a good video, in case you don’t understand why every family or person needs a Hydro Floss:
Occasionally someone will have a need to replace their reservoir, thereby saving themselves from the cost of a new Hydro Floss Unit. In addition, a simple part replacement can keep your HF running for a much longer. This way, you get the most out of a single purchase of a Hydro Floss.
The machine is worth many times its price, in the potential money it can save you on expensive treatments.
You know what they say, “Prevention is the best medicine. ”
If you don’t know what a Hydro Floss is and what it can do for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8VK-Ft5Rpc
And Here is the video on just the reservoir:
These tips are designed for 5 and 6 mm pockets. They come with special instructions for use.
Basically, you cannot use your Hydro Floss on full power with these special tips.
These tips also have a hard plastic tip on them.
For these reason, I suggest that you consider the Pocket Pal Jet Tips as they are made of a softer plastic.
Poking your gums with the harder tips (which is almost inevitable) is not a lot of fun. But with the softer tips on the Pocket Pal jet tips, there is no such problem.
Both are designed for 5-6 mm pockets.
The pockets we refer to here are known as ‘Periodontal Pocket Depths’ your dentist or hygienist can measure them for you.
The measurements should be taken on as many sides of each tooth as possible.
This way you can determine where your trouble spots are.
It is a measurement of the attachment of the gum to the tooth – roughly speaking.
In General terms, you could say that most dental practitioners will say your gums are relatively healthy when all of your pockets are 3mm and below.
Generally speaking – anything above 3mm is considered a problem.
Therefore, you want to get those pocket depths down to 3mm and below, since gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss and the need for a replacement tooth or dentures. The former of which can be quite costly.
To learn more on this topic, it is suggested that you read the books:
What You Should Know About Gum Disease – The Layman’s Guide to Fighting Gum Disease (about 24o pages)
How To Stop Gum Disease In 4 Easy Setps (about 25 pages)
(I have written both of them)
The first book is a paperback and can be found at Toothy Grins Store as well as many other book retail sites.

The Hydro Floss Is The Best Oral Irrigator
You can read more about the Hydro Floss here. If you don’t already have one, now is the time to get one.
If your family is spread out across different locations, now is the time to get one or more as gifts for your loved ones.
There are only few gifts greater than those that protect your dental health! As you have probably heard by now, more and more evidence points to the notion that the health of your mouth reflects the health of your body!
It can be helpful to hear from others how they have done tackling this problem.
Bad breath affects their personal lives as well as their professional lives. And they are not alone, this is a problem that many people suffer from.
Get Coupons to help you save money while tackling this problem. These coupons can help you to save on those oxygenated, pH balanced products created by Dr. Katz, that we just talked about.
Coupons are awesome.
Knowledge is power, so you should know about is a free book that teaches you everything you need to know about stopping bad breath.
This books was not created by some dude in his pajamas either. No, this book was written by the guy who could possibly be the worlds #1 foremost professional on the treatment of bad breath.
His name is Dr. Katz and he is a dentist who has specialized in fighting this problem for several decades now.
You may have seen him on TV, he as been on a number of shows.
His book is FREE and you can get it by clicking here:
Oxygenation and pH balance is what makes a big difference. Many types of mouthwash and toothpaste are only designed to mask the smell of bad breath, they don’t attack the root of the problem. When they wear off, the problem is just as strong as ever.
With better mouthwash and toothpaste as well as specific instruction on how to use them, you can start to attack the root of the problem. You can constantly reduce and eliminate the actual cause – the sulfur compound producing (smelly) bacteria.
See the book resource above for more specific information on how this works.

Did you know that 3 out of every 4 people have gum disease? (75%)
You can ask any dental professional and they will likely agree with the above facts.
So what is going on here?
Regular Brushing and Flossing Are Often Not Enough
Although you should definitely still continue to brush and floss daily, they may not be enough to protect your teeth and your dental health.
The reason I say that is tied into the quick facts above.
Most of the people I know brush and floss and I am willing to guess the same is true for your circle of friends and acquaintances as well.
Yet, despite that, I also know that, according to the statistics, about 7 out of every 10 of the people I know have a gum disease problem – whether they know it or not.
In fact, if you were to ask ten people, you would be lucky to find even 1 that knows they have gum disease. In reality, we know that number is closer to 7 out of every 10 people.
There is a huge disconnect.
Since gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss, those folks are in for trouble, particular if they don’t know and / or do nothing to stop its progression.
Education and action are the keys.
While there is still enough bone and tissue to hold the teeth up, it is not too late control the problem and protect the bone and tissue that you have left.
Even if you have lost one or more teeth already, perhaps you can save the rest?
Gum Disease Is Not An Aging Disease
Many people mistakenly think they don’t have to worry about gum disease until they are very old. That is simply not the case. You can be 6-years-old and have gum disease.
This mistaken perception is very harmful because it makes us complacent. “I don’t have to worry about this until later.”
In fact, the opposite is true.
The reason for this misconception is that over time the damage accumulates, more and more of the supporting bone is destroyed by the disease process and more tissue recedes.
This is visibly obvious. The disease was there before, you just didn’t notice the damage as it occurred slowly over time. In other cases, it can progress more rapidly.
The reason people think this is an aging problem, is because most of the time, you don’t start to notice the accumulated damage until you are older!
But, the problem most likely started years and years ago. If the person had known about the problem and how to protect themselves better, it could have made a major difference over time.
The Costs Of Doing Nothing
The costs of doing nothing are not limited to monetary losses. There is also pain and recovery time after expensive treatments. These treatments may also not do enough to restore a ‘natural’ appearance.
The costs of dental implants is quite high and can range in the thousands of dollars. That is just for one implant, what if you need more?
Implants come with problems of their own and may require repair down the road. Dentures are not perfect either.
In fact, there is no equivalent to keeping your own natural teeth!
Even a relatively minor ‘deep cleaning’, SRP, or Scaling and Root Planing Treatment often costs $1600.
More extensive dental surgeries can get quite expensive. A single gum graft ( to replace lost tissue, assuming there is enough bone left) can cost $500 to $800.
As you may already know, dental insurance usually only covers a fraction of the costs.
So What Do You Do?
Get educated. Read the books: How To Stop Gum Disease In 4 Easy Steps and What You Should Know About Gum Disease – They Layman’s Guide To Fighting Gum Disease – Disclaimer: I wrote both of them.
One of the key measurements that you need to be aware of are you periodontal pocket depths.
These are real, objective, measurements conducted by your dentist or hygienist. They should be taking these measurement on every visits, but I have found that many dental offices only do it infrequently.
You can simply ask them to do it on every visit. Save the numbers and compare them to previous visits.
This is your real, objective way to track this problem.
What are you looking for? Generally speaking, you want those pocket depths to be 3mm or smaller. Most dental practitioners will feel that your gums are healthy in that case. If the depths are greater than 3mm, most dental practitioners will be inclined to say there is a problem growing.
When the pockets are bigger, enough bacteria can accumulate to cause damage. They secrete their acidic byproducts byproducts which can destroy the supporting bone structure under your tissue. When this goes to far you have eroded gum tissue. When things get worse, the teeth can become loose and even fall out.
That is the danger. So keep an eye on your pocket depths. If they are already bigger, start to work on making them smaller. If they are not bigger, work to keep them at the minimal level or below!
In this way, you vastly increase your chances of keeping your teeth for a lifetime of good service. In addition, you increase your chance of avoiding expense, pain and recovery time after costly treatments
PS: Watch this video for one of the most helpful tools I have come across! Used properly, it can be a big help with keeping those periodontal pocket depths in check!
