SUMMARY:
Research suggests that the tongue plays an important role in the production of bad breath. To investigate the role of the surface of the tongue and bad breath causing bacteria, the authors of this study tested connections between odor measurements, volatile sulfur compounds, periodontal parameters, bacterial parameters, and tongue surface characteristics of 16 participants that had complaints of bad breath. The results of the study indicate that the tongue plays an essential role in the development of bad breath.
