Here’s how it works:

A Breathific strip adheres discreetly and safely in the mouth… 

…time-releasing its infused probiotics for 6 hours overnight.

The probiotics compete against dental pathogens for food, space, and resources, thus crowding out the pathogens…

… promoting normal oral health…

…and breaking the oral/systemic link.

“Melts slowly in your mouth — not in your gut"

With its unique, patent-pending, AdherentPlace and Forget, Film-Forming feature, each strip time-releases into your mouth its strains of dental probiotics over three to six hours. Therefore you can even use it safely during sleep. Other brands of dental probiotic supplements do not have this long-lasting ability.

Breathific’s intra-oral adherent strips stick discreetly in your mouth and slowly dissolve to form a spreadable probiotic film. The film protects its dental probiotic strains and keeps them growing within your mouth where you need them.

The probiotics spread throughout your mouth and colonize various niches: tongue, tonsils, throat, sinuses, teeth, gums, and cheeks. In these locations, the probiotic microbes continue to grow, replicate and compete against bad dental germs. They crowd out bad, odorous germs and fight them for space to grow. By filling your mouth with good, probiotic organisms every night, you can eventually overwhelm bad germs, and re-balance your oral microbiome.

Over time (3 months or so) with repeated use and good oral hygiene practices, Breathific’s dental probiotics can shift the population of microbes in your mouth toward better, friendlier microbes. More friendly oral microbes mean fewer bad bugs in your mouth, naturally. That’s because bad dental germs make bad odors. And fewer bad germs means fresher breath and a healthier mouth.

Breathific™ Dental Probiotics is the first of a new class of multi-use, “Place-and-Forget®“, adherent, dental synbiotic dietary supplements designed as a time-release oral strip.

A synbiotic is a combination of probiotics and prebiotics. Probiotics are defined by the World Health Organization as  “micro-organisms that confer a health benefit on the host when administered properly”.  (We at RENUzORAL believe the proper way to administer dental probiotics is via an adherent, time release method.) Prebiotics are the preferred foods for the probiotics. Prebiotics keep the probiotics healthy while they are growing and doing their jobs.

“Place and Forget” adherence is the game-changing feature

You place the strip in your mouth between a cheek and gums. Within 10 seconds the strip adheres discreetly and begins slowly dissolving. Then it feels so comfortable you essentially forget about it. You can even sleep safely with it. The total dissolution process takes between 3 to 6 hours, depending upon whether you use it during the day (3 hrs), or while sleeping (6 hrs).

Morning breath is caused by nighttime overgrowth of bad dental germs. Most dental germs that cause gum problems smell bad. By pitting good probiotic microbes against pathogenic microbes, we can crowd out and eliminate many bad dental germs. Fresh morning breath means that the good probiotics in Breathific are working.

Also — because of the well-known oral-systemic link***, we can break the links between dental problems and systemic problems by fighting bad dental germs.  Thus, fresher breath in the morning = fewer bad dental germs = fewer dental problems = fewer links to systemic problems.

*** Oral health and systemic disease are intimately related but have remained, sadly, as isolated knowledge communities for decades. … it is noteworthy that bacteria form surface-attached communities on most biological surfaces, including the oral cavity. Biofilm-forming bacteria contribute to periodontal diseases and recent evidence points to roles of these bacteria in systemic diseases as well, with cardiovascular diseases, obesity, and cancer as notable examples.
