Journal of Breath Research; Seemann R, Conceicao MD et. al.

Feb 25th, 2014 - Clinical investigations on patients suffering from halitosis clearly reveal that in the vast majority of cases the source for an offensive breath odor can be found within the oral cavity (90%). Based on these studies, the main sources for intra-oral halitosis where tongue coating, gingivitis/periodontitis or a combination of the two. Thus, it is perfectly logical that general dental practitione...

Journal of Breath Research; Falcão DP, Vieira CN et. al.

Feb 29th, 2012 - It is known that almost one-third of patients who seeks treatment for bad breath do not have genuine halitosis. Halitosis can occur even in cases when the malodor is not perceived by those around the patient and can neither be confirmed by organoleptic tests, nor by sulfur portable monitor readings. In such cases, these patients have been considered as halitophobic or have pseudo-halitosis. The...

Apr 5th, 2016 - Bad breath (halitosis) is an important social complaint. In most cases (≥90%), the cause of halitosis can be found within the oral cavity. Under this circumstance, the term oral malodor applies. It affects both healthy and periodontally diseased individuals. Oral malodor is mainly caused by a microbial degradation of both sulfur-containing and nonsulfur-containing amino acids into volatile, bad...

Volatile sulfur compounds as a predictor for esophagogastroduodenal mucosal injury.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2871590
Gut and Liver; Yoo SH, Jung HS et. al.

Aug 31st, 2008 - Halitosis is a symptom that bothers patients more socially than medically and its pathogenic mechanisms are unclear and treatment armamenterium is limited. Clinicians generally ignored active interventions. Since halitosis is closely associated with volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs), we used a Halimeter and gas chromatography to measure VSCs in patients with Helicobacter-pylori (H. pylori)-assoc...

Reports differ as to the proportion of objective halitosis complaints that have tonsillar etiology, with some giving this figure as 3%. Due to their immunologic role, even healthy tonsils usually possess some subclinical inflammation. The tonsil crypt system is also ...

https://doi.org/10.1111/odi.12638
Oral Diseases; Fujiwara N, Murakami K et. al.

Jan 13th, 2017 - Halitosis is caused by volatile sulphur compounds including methyl mercaptan (CH3 SH) in the oral cavity and is a serious problem that limits interpersonal social communication. The aim of study was to evaluate the effects of reuterin-related compounds (RRCs) on halitosis-related periodontopathic bacteria in vitro.

https://doi.org/10.1111/odi.12699
Oral Diseases; Nakhleh MK, Quatredeniers M et. al.

Jun 17th, 2017 - To develop a new generation of diagnostics for halitosis, replacing the subjective organoleptic assessment, a series of exhaled breath analyzers has been developed and assessed. All three devices rely on the assessment of exhaled volatile sulfuric compounds (VSCs), which are mainly generated in and emitted from the oral cavity, contributing to the malodor. Portable, on-site and easy to use, the...

Listerine: past, present and future--a test of thyme.
https://doi.org/10.1016/S0300-5712(10)70003-8
Journal of Dentistry; Fine DH

Jul 21st, 2010 - Listerine, a mouthrinse composed of a mixture of essential oils, was created in 1879 and was originally formulated as a surgical antiseptic. In spite of its known antimicrobial properties it was thought of as a product in search of a use and promoted as a deterrent for halitosis and as a floor cleaner. In the last several years Listerine has emerged as a bona fide therapeutic agent for reductio...

https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02368678

Feb 22nd, 2015 - In recent years, several studies have shown that the levels of volatile sulfur compounds are higher in periodontitis patients. However, the relationship between periodontal disease and bad breath is still controversial. Aspects that should be clarified include its relation to periodontitis severity, the influence of risk variables and the subject of the present research, that is treatment choic...

Effect of Mouth Rinses in Oral Malodor
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01747226

Bad breath or halitosis is caused by specific gases originating from the mouth or the expired air. In most cases the pathology lies within the mouth and in this case receives the name pathologic halitosis of oral cause or oral malodor. The aim of this study is to evaluate the immediate (masking) and long term (therapeutic) effect of commercially available mouth rinses in the treatment of oral m...
