Halitosis - is a term which describes a bad breath from the mouth, which lasts often many years. Volatile sulphur compounds (VSC) are the main reason of halitosis. These substances are the product of oral bacterial activity. Sometimes the bad breath could be a sign of respiratory system diseases, digestive system diseases or metabolic diseases. The aim of this review is to present the main reasons of halitosis, available diagnostic methods and treatment in case of its detection.
