The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship of volatile sulfur compounds (VSC) and tongue coating to periodontal health. After testing forty subjects ranging in age from 14 to 64 years, it was demonstrated that a coating on the tongue is a primary halitosis-inducing factor. Periodontal health was also shown to contribute to VSC production.
