Recognition of this condition is simple, but diseases which cause halitosis may produce distinctly different smells. The distinct smell which each disease produces may offer some help in differentiating the etiology of halitosis if various factors causing this condition are understood.

1. Organoleptic: a sensory test that is scored by a trained judge or clinician based on the perception of the judge or clinician.

In Eritrea typically oral hygiene is very poor, this is often due to the lack of Oral Health Education and inadequacy of professionals to educate the public.

If the dentist diagnoses any gum disease, our hygienists are trained to treat mild to advanced gum disease with deep cleaning using latest technology. We are able in many cases to prevent the need for gum surgery for severe cases.

The ultrasonic scaler gets down to the base of the pocket better, disinfecting the full mouth. We use Arestin® antibiotic treatment and soft-tissue lasers to eliminate remaining bacteria.
