The efficacy of probiotics in the management of intra-oral halitosis: a systematic review
ConclusionsThe available evidence suggests no convincing benefit for the use of probiotics in the management of halitosis. Standardised protocols on recruitment of halitosis subjects and organoleptic measurements are required for future studies on probiotics as an intervention.Clinical relevanceThe lack of well-conducted studies with a low risk of bias precludes any clinical recommendation. Further research is needed to verify the efficacy of probiotics in the management of intra-oral halitosis. (Source: Dental Technology Blog)
