Zinc ions, chlorhexidine and cetylpyridinium chloride are all agents known to inhibit the production of volatile sulfur compounds (VSC) which cause bad breath. The objective of this study was to examine the anti-VSC effects of each of the above agents. It was demonstrated through the study that all test agents had anti-VSC reactions at varying levels. Although, zinc had the best anti-VSC effect and chlorhexidine was the least effective.
