One of the leading causes for bad breath, especially among the smoking population is xerostomia (i.e. dry mouth). As you smoke and your mouth becomes dry, a terrific toothpaste to help cure that classic ‘smokers breath’ side effect is Biotene.
With its sodium fluoride base and a mixture of several other ingredients including hydrated silica and cocamidopropyl betaine (coconut derivative) this toothpaste will help keep your mouth ‘wet’ in order to maintain a fresh breath throughout the course of a day.
While keeping your xerostomia at bay, this Biotene paste will help to reduce the occurrence of periodontal disease and cavities. Even if you don’t suffer from dry mouth, this toothpaste can still still work as an all-around toothpaste for others as well. However being that its a fluoride toothpaste, it should only be used for adults.
If you do chronically suffer from dry mouth, a great complimentary product to this toothpaste is also a rinse from either Biotene or TheraBreath.
