Halitosis (Bad Breath)





Bad breath is not a disease, is a sign. According to the concept of Drs Celi and Denise Vieira Falcão, "Halitosis is an occurrence that manifests as a signal and / or symptoms due to physiological changes, adaptive and / or pathological."

Just as in the cases of fever or rash of spots on the body, halitosis is a reaction to any local change and / or systemic in the human body. Simply, halitosis is the presence of offensive odor to smell human breath through the mouth or nose.

However, according to the Halito Group there is a difference between signal vs symptom. Halitosis is a signal when there is the presence odorivetores proven offensive to human sense of smell in expiratory flow. Halitosis is a symptom when there is a change-perceptive sense of order olfactory and / or taste of the issuer (Vieira & Falcão in Imaginary Halitosis).
