New dental product: InFresh said to cure, not mask, bad breath

Infresh

For many, bad breath is a serious problem that requires a seriously strong solution – beyond what big-brand-name, chemical-based mouthwashes, toothpastes, gum, mints and sprays offer. Now, thanks to InFresh – a revolutionary new breath tablet that systemically eliminates, not masks, bad breath – anyone suffering from the embarrassing problem can overcome it once and for all.

The makers of InFresh have created the most powerful, all-natural breath tablet on the market that delivers immediate fresh breath and other long-term benefits. InFresh is not candy; it is a powerful, sugar-free, herbal formula that works from the inside-out to cure – not mask – bad breath and other types of body odors.

“If you’re looking for a mint-flavored candy, this is not for you. If you’re looking for a cure, this is for you,” states InFresh creator Elias Chavando.

InFresh comes in concentrated tablets that do not contain the large doses of sugar or carcinogenic sugar substitutes found in many other candies and gums. “As a result, the flavor takes some getting used to,” Chavando noted, “but after a couple of uses, our customers are hooked and keep coming back for more,” he said.

The ingredients in InFresh contain a naturally occurring compound called Chlorophyll. Chlorophyll has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and helps to neutralize toxins and pollutants that are ingested daily. Chlorophyll is a natural deodorizer and recommended supplement to fight bad breath.

Formula Seven, the proprietary formula contained in InFresh, is a perfect blend of Chlorophyll-rich greens and a proprietary blend of several ingredients including parsley, alfalfa, wheatgrass, two types of mint and other ingredients, all perfectly blended to achieve maximum results.

Chavando, a Los Angeles businessman and entrepreneur, came up with the idea for InFresh in 2000. He spent more than a decade researching the causes of bad breath and consulting with numerous physicians and homeopathic products experts about potential solutions to the widespread problem, and then worked with a prominent gastroenterologist to perfect the proprietary blend of ingredients. In 2011, he selected a Los Angeles, Calif.-based laboratory to create a tablet from the herbal formula, and in 2012, began conducting product sampling of InFresh to rave reviews.

Communicating shade to dental labs

Chris Salierno, DDS 12/04/2014

Dr. Salierno offers four practical tips that will help all dentists communicate more clearly with their dental labs for succes, and it invovles more effort than just writing a letter and a number on a lab script. I used to just wrtie “A2″ in a box on a lab sheet and hope that the lab would figure it out.  That was pretty dumb.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) our teeth are not identical to the VITA shade guide tabs.  There is far more complexity that exists in our dentin and enamel, so if we are to hope to acheive a higer level of replication we must put in some more effort than just writing a letter and a number on a lab script.

The good news is that you don’t need a masters degree in the fine arts to be able to take a good shade.  Here are some simple steps I use:

(1) Buy a damn digital SLR camera with flash and macro lens

I promise you that getting a professional camera will bring you to another level of dentistry.  There are a number of reasons, which our friend, Dr. Albert Yoo, is writing about in this month’s issue of Dental Economics.  But for now let’s be concerned with the fact that shade communication is far better with a proper camera set up than with your smart phone.  Two popular palces to get the whole package are Lester Dine and PhotoMed.

(2) Pick a few shades that look good

Don’t just pick one shade for your photo; pick a few.  Chances are that there’s more than one shade tab that will offer insight into the teeth of interest.  Giving more than one tab will also give the lab technician some variety and the ability to compare elements of color between photographs.  Don’t forget to give the lab a stump shade (shade of the prepared tooth) if you are using all-ceramic restorations.

(3) Take a proper photograph with the shade tab

Make sure the tab identifier is visable (e.g. A2, C4, etc).  Make sure the tab is held at a similar orientation as the teeth of interest so that the light plays off of it similarly.  Take a few photographs under different lights and not just your treatment room.

The orientation of the shade tab is a bit off, thus giving us a reflection that is not present on the teeth of interest.  This photo isn't terrible, but we lose an opportunity communicate some information to the lab.

These photos are more accurate.  We have good orientation of the tabs, we can see the tab identifiers, and the lab has two photos for comparison.

(4) There’s more than just shade to communicate

But of course we’re not ONLY interested in communicating shade, are we?  There is also characterization and texture; what are the nuances of how the shade is distributed on the surfaces and what tiny lumps and bumps are to be found?  For these bits I like to take an extreme close-up photo, which can really only be done with a camera with a proper macro lens.  This can be separate from your shade tab photos so you’ll have a free hand to use a cool toy like a contrastor.
