SUMMARY:
The thousands of individuals who experience bad breath from anaerobic bacteria on the surface of the tongue can be successfully treated by a regimen that includes tongue and tooth brushing. Additional benefits may be associated with the use of mouthrinses that contain chloreheidine, however there are some undesirable side effects from the use of chlorhexidine. Mouthrinses containing essential oils or zinc chloride have reduced bad breath odors to moderate levels even in the absence of tongue brushing, and they are free of the same side effects experienced with chlorhexidine. These other mouthrinses could be marketed as oral deodorants similar to the purpose of deodorant soaps for body odors.
