Course Description: Halitosis

How can you help your clients with Halitosis?

Did you know diseased and “healthy-looking” mouths can suffer from halitosis? The same bacteria cause periodontal disease and halitosis.  Gain new insights into assessment, diagnosing and treating your client with halitosis.  The physiological and social impact of oral malodour is underestimated by our profession.  Understand why physicians, dental hygienists and dentists have been unable to treat these patients. Kerry will review why brushing your teeth, flossing, having your teeth cleaned and the use of mints, gums and some mouthwashes are not able to control bad breath. She will look at the risk of Volatile Sulphur Compounds (VSC) pose to the client’s systemic health. Tonsillitis play a role in oral malodour and cause significant concerns for many people. Kerry will address myths vs. the real causes of halitosis that you did not learn in school.

Learning Objectives:

·       Recognise whole mouth biofilm influences halitosis and periodontal treatment

·       Understand how stress, meal frequency, and hydration can impact halitosis

·       Learn assessment strategies to find the source and locations of your clients’ halitosis

·       Find out why microbial analysis is required with halitosis care

·       Gain insight into different treatment options to control oral malodour

·       Understand how “healthy looking”  mouths can have breath odour
