LOPEZ JORNET, P; HENAREJAS HERNANDEZ, JL; SAURA PEREZ, M  e  CAMACHO ALONSO, F. Effect of different mouthrinses on oral halitosis. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2003, vol.19, n.6, pp.275-282. ISSN 2340-3152.

Objective: The halitosis is defined as disagreeable or offensive odor, that comes from the oral cavity. The relationship between badly breath and volatile sulfur compounds (CVS) was established by Tonzetich 1977. The diverse products used for the treatment of the halitosis have different objectives: to mask, antibacterial, to turn the volatile forms of the nonvolatile CVS or the sum of the these two last ones. The objective is to compare the effectiveness of the different treatments. Material and method: Forty volunteers, participated in this study blind double pilot, controlled diagnosed of intraoraI halitosis distributed of random form in 4 groups of 10 subjects, assigning to him to each group a treatment A (triclosan, zinc sodium fluoride, chloride, alcohol) B (triclosan, sodium fluoride, chloride of zinc) was C (zinc lactate 0.14%, chIorhexidine 0.05%, cetylpyridium chloride 0.05%) and D with medication placebo. The treatment 10mI 2 times day during 3 weeks. The results valued the level of CVS by means of Halimeter® (ppb). Results: We did not find in this study significant statistical differences (p=0,4932) in variable CVS measured by means of halimeter®. The comparative values of p in the 4 treatments no was smaller of p0,01. Conclusions: This protocoI has not shown the effectiveness of any of the 4 treatments used in the diminution of short term VSC of the oral halitosis.
