ABSTRACT:
Fetor oris or halitosis is an offensive or disagreeable odour that emanates from the mouth.Several etiological factors can contribute to this phenomenon with microbial factors being the most predominant entity.Microbial putrefaction of food debris, cells, saliva, blood leads to production of volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) that cause bad breath. Understanding the different types and etiology of halitosis helps in providing better health care to patients burdened with bad breath. The treatment methods include mechanical and chemical reduction of microorganisms and other non-oral methods.
