A Study on the Internal Oral Factors Affecting Components of Halitosis

소속 상세정보

Abstract


Objective: The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between internal oral factors and components of halitosis and prepare clinically applicable data for efficient prevention of halitosis and establishment of a halitosis control plan.

Methods: A hundred and one healthy adult men and women without systemic diseases were recruited in the present study. Values for each component of halitosis and internal oral factors, including oral hygiene index, using a disclosing agent and Quantitative light-induced fluorescence- device (AIOBIO, Seoul, Korea), salivary flow rate, oral humidity, and tongue plaque index, were measured, and a correlation analysis was performed for each figure.

Results: According to the results of the association analysis between halitosis components and internal oral factors, hydrogen sulfide had a statistically significant relationship with simulated saliva and the tongue coating index (p<0.05). Methyl mercaptan was found to have a significant relationship with the O’Leary index and the simple plaque score (p<0.05).

Conclusion: The above results suggest that of the internal oral factors studied, O’Leary index, simple plaque score, tongue coating index, stimulated saliva, etc., have associations with halitosis components.
