Halitosis clinic was established in Esfahan on 22 Nov 2005. Until 21 April 2015, 454 patients from more than 20 provinces and some other countries visited the clinic. Although we offere the service in a dental clinic, in time of presence of the halitosis patients, no regular dental patients are present in the clinic. This is to respect the privacy of the halitosis patients.
Diagnosis of Halitosis
A key factor in the successful treatment of halitosis, is identifying the cause. Using organoleptic assessment (clinical nose) some tests are performed to measure the odor of the gums, nose, throat, tongue, and the mouth. The amount of sulfur gases of the mouth is measured by a professional device with a precision of 1 in 1000.000.000 (ppb) and during the measurement a curve is plotted on the screen of a laptop. The third diagnostic procedure that lasts about 1 hour is ” Mouthwash Test”. If you want to read more information about our treatment approach, please refer to an article published in 2008. We determine the cause of halitosis on the basis of these tests.
Halitosis Treatment Methods
In 99% of the cases, halitosis treatment is simple that consists of mechanical and chemical methods. The mechanical method is cleaning of the tongue and the teeth surfaces which is completed with chemical methods i.e. mouthwash prescription.
