It's not going to give you whiter teeth. As to bad breath or mouth odor, that depends on the source of your bad breath. If your bad breath is due to gastro-esophageal problems like acid reflux disease, then absolutely not. If the bad breath is due to general growth on/between teeth or on tongue, then it will probably HELP (NOT eliminate), so long as you floss & brush as well. FYI, this machine does NOT replace flossing!

yes, it does help with bad breath , for 2 reasons,, one it gets the food out from between the teeth so it doesn't decay, and it gives you healthy gums, second,, you can put mouth wash in the tank and that really does the job, because it gets the wash in between all your teeth to kill the germs that cause bad breath.

It's a stiffer plastic that is coiled. It is able to extend due to this coiling. It is not a rubber like, say a rubber gasket or those rubber pencil cushions (sorry, can't think of better examples just now).
