Association Between Dental Implants Properties and Malodor Production
Malodor production is bacterial in origin. The bacterial activity of anaerobic bacteria results in the breakdown of proteins and the production of foul smelling compounds. The aim of the study is to test the hypothesis that bacterial growth on dental implants contributes to malodor production and to see whether this contribution is associated with various properties of the dental implant such as: maker, type, depth ext.
