ABSTRACT
Objective:
This study investigated the effect of Yin deficiency medicine on halitosis patients and the relationship between subjective recognition and objective symptoms of oral malodor.

Methods:
We administered Yin deficiency medicine, such as Jaeumganghwa-tang, and conducted the Halitosis Associated Life-quality Test (HALT) and OralChromaTM. Subjective recognition of halitosis was evaluated using HALT. Objective symptoms of halitosis were evaluated using OralChromaTM. In addition, before and after administering medicine, we determined the halitosis according to percentages at the patient's word.

Results:
The total gas and HALT were not related to each other after Maekmoondong-tang or Saengmaek-san were administered to 10 halitosis patients.

Conclusion:
Yin deficiency medicine is effective in treating halitosis. Moreover, the subjective recognition and objective symptoms of halitosis are not related to each other.
