Studies have suggested that when chlorine dioxide is within a mouthrinse, it neutralizes malodorous volatile sulfur compounds in mouth air. This study was to further prove the efficacy of a mouthrinse that contains chlorine dioxide in reducing bad breath. At the conclusion of the study of 31 participants, it was demonstrated that a one-time use of a chlorine dioxide-containing mouthrinse significantly improves mouth odor pleasantness, reduces mouth odor intensity, and reduces volatile sulfur compounds concentrations in mouth air for at least 8 hours after use.
