Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the tonsils as an origin of halitosis and to assess the efficacy oftonsillectomy for the treatment of oral bad breath caused by chronic tonsillitis. After excludingdental, periodontal, sinonasal, oral, pulmonary, and gastroenterological diseases as the origin ofhalitosis, fourty-four patients with halitosis caused by chronic tonsillitis which proved by positiveFinkelstein's tonsil smelling test (pressing the tonsils and smelling the squeezed discharge),were included in the study. All patients were treated by tonsillectomy. Subjective and objectivepostoperative assessment was based on self-and-family report and clinical assessment.Patients were reviewed after 4 and 8 weeks postoperatively. Complete improvement of halitosisoccurred in 31 patients (70.4%) after 4 weeks, this value increased to 35 patients (79.5%) in thesecond review after 8 weeks. It is concluded that tonsillectomy is significantly effectiveprocedure for the treatment of halitosis caused by chronic tonsillitis.

Abstract

Background: Halitosis represents a common dental condition, although sufferers are often not conscious of it. It iscommon among humans around the world and is usually caused by an accumulation of bacteria in the mouth as aresult of gum disease, food, or plaque. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of oral hygiene practices,smoking habits and halitosis among undergraduate dental students and correlate the oral hygiene practices, oralhealth conditions to the prevalence of self perceived oral malodor.Materials and Methods: Clinical examination of 250 dental students and a self-administered questionnaire wereincluded in this study. A questionnaire was developed to assess the self-reported perception of oral breath,awareness of bad breath, timing of bad breath, oral hygiene practices, caries and bleeding gums, dryness of themouth, smoking and tongue coating.Results: The results indicated that female students had better oral hygiene practices. Significantly less self-reportedoral bad breath (P = 0.000) was found in female dental students (40%) as compared to male (70%). It was found thatsmoking had statistically highly significant correlation with halitosis (P = 0.000). Presence of other oral conditions suchas dental caries and filled carious lesions also showed higher prevalence of halitosis in dental students.Conclusion Oral hygiene practices and oral health conditions are very important factors in halitosis. Femalesexhibited better oral hygiene practices and less prevalence of halitosis as compared to male students

Abstract

Aims: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the antimicrobial activities of three herbs (Salvadora persica ,Nigella sativa , and Elettaria cardamomum) by using three different methods of extractions (aqueous , ethanolic, and Soxhelt apparatus technique) . Materials and methods: Twenty eight subjects suffered from oral halitosis their ages range(18-65)years. Fifty eight samples were collected by sterile paper points(size 50 )or sterile cotton swab and transported in thioglycolate broth and cultured on blood agar in aerobic or anaerobic conditions for 48-72 hours. The herbal extracts were qualitatively examined against thirteen microbial strains, zones of growth of inhibition were measured as indicators of anti-microbial activity compared to chlorohexidin gluconate 0.2%(as control ). Results: Thirteen microbial species were isolated in this study : (Bacteriodes species, Viridans Streptococci, Peptostreptococci spp., Actinomyces spp., Porphymonos spp., Fusobacterium spp., Veillonella spp., Non-coagulase Staphylococcus, Prevotella spp., Propinobacterium spp., Tetragenococci spp. ,Eubacterium spp., and Staph.aureus .Ethanolic extraction of S. persica exhibited notable antimicrobial activities against most of the tested strains(85%to the control), N. sativa was (6.3% of the control) and E cardamomum was (22.9% of the control),aqueous extraction of S. persica was (13.5%of the control), N. sativa was ( about 0%of the control)and E cardamomum was (6.8%of the control), Soxhelt apparatus extraction method of S. persica was (14% of the control), N. sativa was (8.5% of the control), and E. cardamomum was (12.6% of the control) . Conclusion: Ethanolic extraction of S. persica has the first inhibitory effect compared to the control in the species of Peptostreptococci, Actinomyces, and Staphylococcus aureus. So , S persica can be considered as an effective antimicrobial agent in inhibiting the growth of oral halitosis including pathogens, while neither E. cardamomum nor N. sativa can be considered as effective antimicrobial agents in inhibiting the growth of oral bacteria causing halitosis.

Abstract

Asthma is a common inflammatory condition of lung airways. Its cause isincompletely understood .Patients with bronchial asthma are affected both by the disease and its treatment .The purpose of our study was to examine the salivary composition in asthmatic patients ,and study the association between asthma and occurrence of selected oral symptoms .The study was divided into two phases. In the first phase (salivary analysis) thesalivary composition and unstimulated salivary flow rates of 50 asthmatic patients werecompared with that of 25 non -asthmatic subjects. In the second phase (questionnairsurvey) the occurrence of symptoms of oral diseases in asthmatics (n=I I3) was comparedwith that of non—asthmatic subjects (n=ll I .)In addition to the symptoms of oral diseases, data on background informationwere taken. The results of salivary analysis showed no statistically significant differencesbetween the asthmatic and non- asthmatics concerning the salivary flow rate andcomposition, However, the asthmatic saliva samples showed lower potassium and higherinorganic phosphorus levels .In the questionnair survey , the subjects reported more symptoms (dry mouth ,soremouth , halitosis , pain in Temporomandibular jiont (TMI) , stuffiness in (TMI) andclicking in (TMI) compaired to the controlled group. The presence of asthmaprecipitating factors and medication used had a considerable effect on the probability ofhaving symptoms of oral diseases when compaired to non- users

Abstract

Twenty-eight patients suffering from oral halitosis were subjected to this study (14 males and 14 females), their ages range between 18 to 65 years were diagnosed clinically. Ninety-five samples were collected by sterile paper points (size 50) or sterile cotton swab and transported in thioglycolate broth and cultured on blood agar in aerobic or anaerobic conditions for (48-72 hours), the identification of the bacteria was carried out using morphological and cultural characteristics, biochemical tests and antibiotics susceptibility tests. The results showed that 13 different bacterial species isolated in this study ((Bacteriodes spp. (14 isolate), Viridans Streptococci (10 isolates), Peptostreptococci spp. (9 isolates), Actinomyces spp. (6 isolates), Porphyromonas spp. (4 isolates), Fusobacterium spp. (4 isolates), Veillonella spp. (4 isolates), Non.coagulase Staphylococcus (3 isolates) Prevotella spp (one isolate), Propinobacterium spp. (one isolate) Tetragenococci spp. (one isolate), Eubacterium spp. (one isolate), and Staphylococcus aureus (one isolate). The conclusion is the dominance of different genera and species of anaerobic bactria in cases of halitosis.

Abstract

Background: Adolescence is one of the most dynamic stages of human development. However, Oral health is an integral part of public health, significantly impacts on the quality of life. OHE program is an important issue that should be given to them. The aim of this study was to evaluate oral health outcomes on adolescents' oral health by teachers and mothersMaterials and Methods: The study was carried out in seven schools of Diyala - Baquba city. This 14-weeks duration study assessed the effectiveness of school OHE program on oral hygiene status, gingival health, and halitosis assessment of 80, 12 year-old, both genders of school adolescents. From the selected schools, one group was supervised by the teachers and the other was supervised by the mothers. General and oral health assessments were evaluated using a questionnaire. A three days training workshop was organized for the teachers and mothers. Oral hygiene, gingival health, and halitosis assessment were assessed using plaque indices, gingival indices and halitosis scores respectively. the resulting data were statistically analyzed using SPSS version 20.Results: Plaque, gingival and halitosis scores reductions were highly significant. Results recorded gingival index, and halitosis scores were lower among the teacher-led group compared to the mother-led group. Statistically, high significant differences were found (P< 0.01).But there is no significant differences were noticed between the groups for plaque index (p>0.05).Conclusions: The OHE program was effective in teacher-led group than mother-led group in improving oral hygiene status, gingival health and halitosis scores of adolescents
