TitleIdentification of salivary microbiota associated with oral malodor using 16S pyrosequencing
Study TypeMetagenomics
Abstract Both hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and methyl mercaptan (CH3SH) are frequently detected in large amounts in malodorous mouth air. We investigated the bacterial composition of saliva of 30 subjects with severe oral malodor exhibiting extreme CH3SH/H2S ratios (high H2S but low CH3SH concentrations, n = 14; h .. [more]
