Whether you’ve had a boozy night or not, you can almost guarantee you’ll wake up in the morning with a grim taste and smell in your mouth. Let’s face it, morning breath isn’t sexy. And sometimes, it can be a little embarrassing too, especially if you’re waking up next to someone you’ve been intimate with.
It isn’t a fun way to start your day, but it’s extremely common and perhaps a signal that you need to make a couple of tweaks to your dental routine. Yup, there are actually ways to prevent morning breath!
Keep reading to learn why we get morning breath in the first place and discover the best way to banish it for good.
What causes morning breath
You may experience morning breath if you have a dry mouth, which is often the result of sleeping with your mouth open. Your saliva is what helps to remove bad breath-causing bacteria that builds up overnight.
When we sleep, saliva production decreases drastically, which allows bacteria to thrive, resulting in morning breath.
Eating certain foods
As you catch up on your Zs, enzymes in your saliva break down food particles between your teeth, on your tongue, and around the gumline.
This process releases volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) that give off a foul smell, which is what’s behind morning breath. The foods you consume can also influence how your breath smells in the morning.
Strong-smelling foods include garlic, onions, spices, and coffee, which can lead to morning breath the next day, even if you practise good oral hygiene.
Poor oral hygiene
It’s no surprise that poor oral hygiene is a precursor for bad breath.
Our mouths are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, especially if you aren’t already brushing or flossing regularly. Food particles can get lodged in crevices between the teeth, along your gum tissue, or on the surface of your tongue.
The bacteria in your mouth will then break down these food particles, and as we mentioned, releases compounds that cause a stench in the morning.
But what if you already have good oral hygiene practices in place? Well, you may want to consider switching your toothpaste for one that specifically targets morning breath.
Enter Dentiste Nighttime Herbapeutic Toothpaste, the world’s first nighttime toothpaste.
Why you need a nighttime toothpaste
When it comes to protecting your gum and teeth overnight, a toothpaste that effectively inhibits oral bacteria from growing while you sleep is essential to preventing morning breath.
In fact, clinical studies have shown that a whopping 80% of oral issues, such as cavities, gum inflammation, and plaque, all occur at night while you snooze!
This is why you need a nighttime toothpaste that targets the cause of stinky morning breath, and Dentiste Nighttime Herbapeutic Toothpaste does exactly that and more.
Dentiste Nighttime Herbapeutic Toothpaste is formulated with 14 proprietary premium natural extracts, which include clove, sage, chamomile, and fennel, to name a few.
These antimicrobial extracts hail from the heritage of our ancient world, such as Rome, Greece, China, and Egypt; and they’ve been proven to reduce gingivitis and cavities, and eradicate bad breath. They eliminate nighttime oral bacteria that grows while you sleep, and help moisturise your mouth to prevent dryness.
But that’s not all – Dentiste Nighttime Herbapeutic Toothpaste is also further bolstered by advanced complexes and ingredients. Here’s what makes Dentiste Nighttime Herbapeutic Toothpaste a cut above regular toothpaste:
- CDX (Cyclodextrin Complex): Utilising advanced dental technology, this complex traps VSCs to reduce bad breath, enhancing the efficacy of the 14 premium natural extracts.
- Micro Silica Complex: This compound gently scrubs to remove stains without damaging your natural tooth enamel.
- Xylitol: A natural sweetener that can be found in fruits and vegetables, which odour-producing bacteria isn’t able to feed on.
- Stable vitamin C: A potent antioxidant that prevents gum disease and shields your cells from damage.
With a powerful blend of compounds and herbal ingredients, Dentiste Nighttime Herbapeutic Toothpaste lets you wake up with fresh morning breath right after the first night of application.
So it’s no surprise that Blackpink’s Lisa uses Dentiste Nighttime Herbapeutic Toothpaste to maintain her pearly whites and keep her breath smelling fresh all day! We hear BTS’ Jungkook is a fan of the nighttime toothpaste too.
And with over 200 million tubes sold worldwide, I knew I had to try it myself to see if it was really lived up to the hype.
Does Dentiste Nighttime Herbapeutic Toothpaste actually work?
As someone who has good oral hygiene practices in place, waking up with morning breath can really dampen my mood. No matter how stringent I am with brushing, flossing, and tongue-scraping, I couldn’t seem to get rid of the stench that greeted me when I woke up.
My partner says I don’t sleep with my mouth open either, which strikes dry mouth off the list of possible causes. Furthermore, I don’t smoke or drink coffee during the day, so I chalked it up to other strong-smelling foods I consume during the day.
When I first heard about Dentiste Nighttime Herbapeutic Toothpaste, it really piqued my interest. I had never known that nighttime toothpaste existed and was a little sceptical about its efficacy at first, but the only way to know for sure is to try it out myself.
The mint green toothpaste really packs a refreshing punch, but it didn’t leave my mouth feeling uncomfortable unlike other kinds of strong minty toothpaste. It didn’t irritate my sensitive teeth too.
The next morning, I did a quick check by breathing out into my cupped hand. To my surprise, my breath didn’t smell as bad as it usually does! I even woke my partner up (whoops) to conduct a quick sniff test. Although he was still in a daze, he remarked that there was hardly any smell.
I was so amazed that I even got him to try it the next night. He often sleeps with his mouth open, and let’s just say that being hit by his hot, heavy stench isn’t the best way to get woken up.
We checked our breaths the morning after, and indeed, Dentiste Nighttime Herbapeutic Toothpaste had done its job at nixing terrible odour, which made a fresh morning kiss possible.
Among all the toothpaste I’ve tried over the years, Dentiste Nighttime Herbapeutic Toothpaste proved to be the most well-rounded formula.
I like that it does more than just leave my mouth feeling fresh – its active ingredients help to thoroughly clean my teeth and mouth, eliminate bacteria that causes morning breath, as well as prevent gingivitis and cavities.
I can go to bed and rest assured knowing that odour-causing bacteria won’t be partying in my mouth while I catch up on my sleep.
And if you think Dentiste Nighttime Herbapeutic Toothpaste is only meant for nighttime use, think again! The brand says that you can use it at any time of the day for long-lasting, fresh breath.
You’ll have to try it yourself to experience the difference!
