Frequently Asked Questions

General
Does BreathGuard really stop bad breath?

Much of our feedback comes not only from our customers themselves, but from their partners or friends too. Before BreathGuard, they too would have shared in the negative impact of bad breath. We believe these ‘eyewitness’ reports are the best evidence that BreathGuard is effective at preventing bad breath. (We’ve actually had customers thank us for saving their relationship!). Read some reviews here.

How does the BreathGuard work?

The BreathGuard is a unique antibacterial mouthguard. You wear it at night to cover your teeth and gums in a protective shield, infused with zinc ions. Wearing it for about 5 hours at night is enough to block the bad breath bacteria and stop them from growing back during the day. In the morning, you use the Probiotic Supplements to add beneficial bacteria and support your immune system. After a few nights you gradually will notice the results: clean teeth, healthy gums, and a fresh breath. Learn more about the treatment.

How much does a BreathGuard cost?

The BreathGuard Fresh Breath Kit costs $149. This price includes our antibacterial mouthguard, Probiotic Supplements, and free access to personal advice from a Breath Consultant. Many of our customers already spent a lot of money on other products before, with little results. We’re passionate about our solution and want to give you a chance at trying it. That’s why we offer a 14-day return policy so that you can try the BreathGuard in the comfort of your home to see if it works for you.

Will the BreathGuard work for me, even after having chronic bad breath for a long time?

We’re confident to say there’s no solution on the market today, that fully gets rid of the root cause of bad breath as effectively as the BreathGuard does - even after years of having bad breath.

Is BreathGuard comfortable?

The BreathGuard was designed to be fitted to your own mouth. When following the user instructions, you will be able to mold and remold the BreathGuard to make it fit comfortably around your teeth and gums. The BreathGuard is also safe to use with braces and they can be adjusted and refitted as your teeth move.  

How long does BreathGuard take to work?  

We have seen that our current users notice small improvements after the first night already. After a few nights, you’ll gradually see bigger improvements. We recommend taking note of a couple of symptoms, before you start using BreathGuard. After the first couple of nights you’ll start to see improvements in the overall cleaner feel of your mouth, your mouth becoming less dry, your tongue becoming less white and your gums bleeding less. That is when you will know the BreathGuard is working for you and wearing it at night will result in a fresh breath during the day.

How often should I replace my BreathGuard?  

How often you should replace your BreathGuard varies based on usage and how you take care of it. A BreathGuard that isn’t cleaned, stored or maintained properly is going to wear out eventually. We recommend replacing your BreathGuard every 6 months.

What is the BreathGuard made of?

The BreathGuard is made out of performance polymer (no latex), so there are no harmful chemicals involved and no active ingredients apart from zinc, incorporated in the material of the mouthguard.

What happens if my dog chews up my BreathGuard appliance?  

It may be hard to believe, but we’ve had a couple of BreathGuard users with dogs that apparently love to chew on the BreathGuard. The material of the BreathGuard won’t harm the dog, but please be aware of choking hazards. We recommend making sure your BreathGuard is in a place unreachable from your pet. Whether it is a draw or cupboard or up somewhere nice and high, and be sure to keep it in the container at all times.

How can this help with keeping my tongue clean as well?  

The BreathGuard is made out of a patented material that was infused with zinc ions, which makes the mouthguard resistant to biofilm adhesion and bacteria growth. Wearing the BreathGuard will protect your teeth and gums from bad breath bacteria and on top of that your saliva will start to work as a kind of transporter of these zinc ions protecting your tongue and keeping it free from bad breath bacteria.

Why is the BreathGuard different from mouthwash?  

When you compare the BreathGuard to mouthwash you’ll see that they both intent to cure bad breath by attacking bad breath bacteria, but the way they work and the outcome is completely different. Whereas mouthwash will be able to get rid of some bad breath bacteria, the BreathGuard actively attacks bad breath bacteria for at least 4-5 hours. This is enough to block the bad breath bacteria and stop them from growing back during the day. After a few nights you gradually will notice the results: clean teeth, healthy gums, and a fresh breath. Bad breath bacteria can survive a quick rinse of mouthwash, but they can't win against a few hours of wearing this antibacterial mouthguard. Making the BreathGuard a full 24-hour solution against a 30-minute cover up.

Can a normal mouthguard help with my bad breath?

No. The BreathGuard is made out of a patented material that was infused with zinc ions. Based on Biomimicry Technology, Saniconcentrates™ make use of this natural trace element to make our mouthguard resistant to biofilm adhesion and bacteria growth. This is how the BreathGuard blocks bacteria from attaching, growing, and causing bad breath. At the same time, wearing the BreathGuard boosts your natural saliva production and prevents you from having dry mouth.

I grind my teeth. Will this damage my BreathGuard?  

Due to the grinding, you may have to replace your BreathGuard more often, but the good news is, that the BreathGuard will reduce the damage that grinding does to your teeth.

I’ve been diagnosed with TMJ. Can I use BreathGuard?
