Reporting today at the 83rd General Session of the International Association for Dental Research, convening at the Baltimore Convention Center, investigators from Tsurumi University (Yokohama, Japan) presented results from a study investigating the effects of eating sugar-free traditional yoghurt on the components of oral malodor and harmful bacteria.

They found that the levels of volatile sulfide compounds, namely, hydrogen sulfide, decreased in 80% of the volunteers after six weeks. Further, the plaque and gingival indices in the yoghurt-eating volunteers were significantly lower than in the nonyoghurt-eating group with bad breath.

The results suggest that eating traditional yoghurt may reduce the components of oral malodor and harmful bacteria.
