Background: Recent evidences had demonstrated a link between halitosis and apoptosis in periodontitis. Periodontal pathogenic micro-organisms produce volatile sulphur compounds (VSCs). VSCs are toxic to periodontal tissue. Purpose: The purpose of this paper was to reveal the mechanism of VSCs in periodontal breakdown according to the most recent knowledges. r eviews: Halitosis is mainly attributed to VSCs such as hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan and dimethyl sulfide. Several studies demonstrated a strong relationship between VSCs and periodontal disease progression. VSCs are released from amino acid breakdown from food, protein, cells, blood and saliva. In prone subjects, the VSCs may cause alteration in tissue integrity by increasing its permeability and facilitate the endotoxin to penetrate the tissue barrier. They may also causing apoptotic in gingival and periodontal tissue, which are considered the main pathogenesis in aggravating the periodontitis. VSCs may also initiate the increase of proinflammatory cytokines which is considered to have negative effects in host response. Conclusion: VSCs had been shown to have detrimental effects in gingival and periodontal ligament cells. The use of chlorine dioxine agent and topical antioxidant is beneficial in controlling the periodontal disease severity.
