TheraBreath toothpastes and oral hygiene products were created based on extensive research conducted by Dr. Katz. He discovered that many problems arise from chronic dry mouth syndrome, the proliferation of anaerobic bacteria, and an environment devoid of oxygen. Further, many name brand toothpastes contain the abrasive, foaming agent SLS, a surfactant that is also included in cleaning products like detergents and shampoos. Researchers have correlated SLS with recurring canker sores due to its caustic nature and capacity to irritate and abrade sensitive tissues inside the mouth.
