Résumé

Objectif : Il s'agit d'un document de synthèse destiné à élaborer un protocole simple pour l'évaluation complète et rapide de l'halitose.
Matériels et méthodes : Un vaste protocole a été développé par une revue de la littérature afin d'identifier tous les facteurs étiologiques possibles identifiés des études précédentes. Le protocole qui en résulte a été présenté comme un formulaire comprenant les antécédents médicaux et dentaires ainsi qu'un examen oral et parodontal. Les aspects médicaux pertinents, une rubrique de consultation ORL ainsi que gastro-intestinale ont également été incluses. Chaque type de données recueillies à partir de la littérature a été inclus afin de dresser une liste incluant tous les facteurs possibles. Les facteurs découverts à partir de l'expérience des auteurs ont, également, été inclus dans le protocole.
Résultats : Une longue liste de facteurs a été identifiée dans la littérature qui comprend des facteurs médicaux, dentaires, parodontaux, alimentaires et autres. Tout ceci a été inclus dans le formulaire qui en résulte. Une liste de pré-évaluation a également été incluse.
Conclusion : L'halitose a une étiologie multiforme. Un protocole facile à utiliser permet à une évaluation complète mais rapide de l'halitose.

Abstract
Proposing a novel protocol for halitosis assessment

Aim: This is a review paper intended to develop a simple protocol for the comprehensive yet rapid assessment of halitosis.
Materials and methods: An extensive protocol was developed through a review of literature to identify all possible etiological factors as have been identified by previous workers. The resulting protocol was presented as a form including extensive medical and dental history as well as oral and periodontal examination. Relevant medical aspects, an otolaryngology (ENT) consultation section as well as a gastrointestinal consultation were also included. Every bit of evidence gathered from literature was included in order to develop a list that's as inclusive of all possible contributing factors as possible. Factors discovered from the experience of the authors were also included in the protocol.
Results: A long list of factors was identified in literature including medical, dental, periodontal, diet and others. All these were included in the resulting form and a pre-evaluation checklist was also included.
Conclusion: Halitosis is multifaceted in etiology. A simple easy-to-use protocol helps in an extensive yet rapid evaluation of halitosis.

Comment added on 3/21/2014 by Monsieur Solomon Olusegun Nwhator (Abuja - Nigéria)

This study is an attempt at providing a quick tool for those working with halitosis patients. It has its limitations like every other study but we believe it will add to the current body of knowledge in the difficult field of halitosis management.
