Abstract :The purpose of this study was to develop clinical classification of halitosis with corresponding treatment needs and was to tentatively classify halitosis patients according to the proposed classification. The classification consists of 3 classes (Ⅰ,Ⅱ,andIII) and 3 sub-classes in class I, that is, physiologic halitosis (Class1-a), oral pathologic halitosis (Class 1-b-1), extraoral pathologic halitosis (Class 1-b-2), Pseudo-halitosis (Class 2) and Halitophobia (Class3). Organoleptic scoring, volatile sulfur compounds (VSC) measurements using a portable sulfide monitor (Halimeter; RH-17 series, Interscan) and/or Gas Chromatograph (GC) were carried out for patients with bad breath complaint at the Breath Odor Clinic in the Dental School Hospital, Niigata University. All patients were examined 3 times in different days and diagnosed by average scores or values. There were 215 patients newly registered at the Clinic during the 1st year from April 1, 1998 to 31 March 1999. After excluding patients with incomplete data in their medical records, 210 patients (71 males and 139 females) were classified according to the proposed classification. Numbers (percentages) of patients with physiologic halitosis (Group 1), oral pathologic halitosis (Group 2), extraoral pathologic halitosis (Group 3), pseudo-halitosis (Group4), and halitophobia (Group5) were 43 (20.5%), 78 (37.1%), 7 (3.3%), 74 (35.2%), and 8 (3.8%), respectively. The mean organoleptic scores of patients in Groups 1 (2.1), 2 (2.6) and 3 (2.5) were higher than those in Groups 4 (1.3) and 5 (1.6). The mean VSC values of patients in Groups 1 (169.0ppb), 2 (235.3ppb) and 3 (210.4ppb) were higher than those in Groups 4 (100.5ppb) and 5 (108.9ppb). Relatively higher VSC values were found even in pseudo-halitosis and balitophobia groups although both had lower level of OLS.
