Stabilised stannous fluoride: the solution for bad breath or mouth odour
Halitosis, an increasingly common pathology characterised by a bad smell in the mouth, is a problem that affects our human relationships in both the sentimental and professional spheres, which can be tackled easily and effectively by using toothpastes with stabilised stannous fluoride, as described by experts from the main dental clinics in the Murcia Region.
According to the studies published so far, more than three out of four cases of halitosis originate in the mouth, with slightly less than 25 percent originating from problems in other areas, such as the digestive system.
This is why it is essential to control the bacteria present in the mouth, mainly on the tongue, if we want to put an end to halitosis, as they produce volatile sulphur compounds which, included in the air we breathe out, generate the sensation of bad breath.
This requires a product with high bactericidal potency and no side effects (such as chlorhexidine or alcohol-based mouthwashes, which are not recommended in the long term because of their side effects), something that perfectly defines the characteristics of stabilised stannous sulphide.
The mechanism of action of stabilised stannous fluoride alone allows for a bactericidal action that helps to eliminate up to 71% (Farrell S, et al. Effects of 0.454% SnF2 Dentifrice on Daytime and Overnight Malodour. J Dent Res 2008;87) of oral malodour, improving the results of other formulations (Ford S, et al. Comparison of Breath efficacy of stannous Fluoride and Triclosan/ Copolymer dentifrice. J Dent Res. 2007;86).
This, together with a good brushing of the back of the tongue, using a brush or tongue scraper, ensures that the patient will enjoy fresh breath, which is good news that allows people suffering from halitosis to solve the problem easily and effectively, returning to a normal life.
