Halitosis and Mouth Breathing in Children
Halitosis and Mouth Breathing in Children

Objective: determine whether there is a correlation between halitosis and mouth breathing in children. Study design: Fifty-five children between three and 14 years of age were divided into two groups (nasal and mouth breathing) for the assessment of halitosis. Descriptive analysis was carried out regarding the degree of halitosis in each group. The chi-square test was used for the comparison between groups, with 5% level of significance.

All children registered at the clinic of the specialization course in pediatric dentistry of the ABCD/SP in 2008 were included in the study.
