Association Between Dental Implants Properties and Malodor Production
Malodor production is bacterial in origin. The bacterial activity of anaerobic bacteria results in the breakdown of proteins and the production of foul smelling compounds. The aim of the study is to test the hypothesis that bacterial growth on dental implants contributes to malodor production and to see whether this contribution is associated with various properties of the dental implant such as: maker, type, depth ext.

An offensive, foul breath odor resulting from a variety of causes such as poor oral hygiene, dental or oral infections, or the ingestion of certain foods.
The investigators propose a novel assessment of oral malodor (halitosis) by a quality of life (QOL) questionnaire designed specifically for halitosis and a new treatment for halitosis by i...
Users of Breezy candy will utilize the candy's abrasiveness to scrape tongue surface. The scraping action together with the release of compounds contained inside the abrasive microcapsules...
Oral malodor is a common condition. In most cases this condition results from the proteolytic activity of anaerobic oral bacteria. These bacteria produce volatile sulfide compounds which a...
Previous research has shown the oxidizing properties and microbiological efficacies of chlorine dioxide (ClO2). However, no clinical studies have investigated its microbiological efficacie...
Medical center personnel are screened organoleptically for bad breath by 2 investigators using Rosenberg scale 0-5, and measurement of breath sample in gas chromatograph. With a threshold...
Halitosis is a symptom and not a diagnosis. Rather, the topic represents a spectrum of disorders, including intra-oral, otorhinolaryngological, metabolic, systemic, pulmonary, psychological and neurol...
Halitosis is a generic term used to describe unpleasant odor emanating from the mouth air and breath, independent of the source where the odor substances originate. It affects between 50 and 65% of th...
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate whether patients with diagnosed erosive gastroesophageal reflux disease (ERD) have an increased probability of halitosis and tongue coating compared...
Halitosis, bad breath or oral malodour are all synonyms for the same pathology. Halitosis has a large social and economic impact. For the majority of patients suffering from bad breath, it causes emba...
Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg), the main antimicrobial tea catechin, has been reported to inhibit growth and virulence factors of oral pathogens in vitro. Although the mechanism is unclear, the poten...
