Hi,

Dentist told me to use a specific toothpaste and mouthwash (both against bad breath which I have just a little).

My questions are can I use that toothpaste (and mouthwash) just 1-2 times a week, and use a regular toothpaste on other days? Is there anything wrong with that? Will the bad breath toothpaste still be at least a bit effective to fight bad breath?

The toothpaste & m/w are called Gum Halicontrol.

Thanks

Isn't this a question for your dentist? They know your situation, no one else does.

Why don't you want to use the recommended products as they are intended to be used (as in daily)? If you've just started using them maybe you should use as directed for a while to get some control of the cause of the problem, then experiment easing off later. By experimenting...asking someone else to judge your breath!

OP: If everything checks out as far as tooth decay and gum disease, read this info and get to the root of the bad breath issue. It's most likely an "inside job"...work on cleaning the blood and what would do that is Vit C and Grape Seed Extract and I take both these. There is a lot of good info to think about.

On Antioxidants like Vit C

Why don't you want to use what the dental professional recommended? Is it painful? Is it too expensive? If I was you, I'd trust the dentist rather than the internet, the professional has examined you, we haven't.

Because the toothpaste is very small compared to the one I had, and it's quite expensive. Otherwise I would have no problem using it and the mouthwash daily...

@jaminhealth I'll take a look at those links, thanks.

If you cannot afford to buy the toothpaste that the dentist prescribed than you should let the dentist know that. The dentist may have samples of the toothpaste that he can give you, or he may be able to prescribe a less expensive generic.


Definitely go back and tell your dentist that you cannot afford the medicine he prescribed for you.


The dentist cannot help you without knowing this information.

if you have bad BREATH, it has little to do with mouth cavity condition. No matter what toothpaste you use, it will only add a masking layer to the BREATH. So as mentioned before - clean breath. Healthy body does not produce bad odors.
