SUMMARY:
The purpose of this study was to determine whether a reduction of salivary flow, also known as dry mouth, would influence the production of bad breath causing volatile sulfur compounds. A total of 174 participants were evaluated. The results of the study indicated that those participants with extremely low resting salivary flow rates had significantly higher concentrations and a coating of the tongue than those participants with a higher resting salivary flow. Additionally those patients prone to a drier mouth had a thicker tongue coating and greater pocket depths within their gums.
