The Halimeter® is:

  • Easy to use
  • Small, portable, and lightweight
  • Based on sensor technology proven in industrial applications for more than 25 years.

Research has indicated that hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan, other thiols, and dimethyl sulfide, collectively referred to as volatile sulfur compounds (VSC), are the principal malodorants in chronic halitosis. These compounds are generated by anaerobic bacteria, located principally on the back of the tongue. The American Dental Association confirms that millions of people suffer from this condition in the United States alone.

While many people are heavy users of over-the-counter mouthwashes, capsules, and mints, unless they are specially formulated to treat this affliction, they are of almost no long-term value. In nearly all cases, chronic halitosis is a dental problem, to be treated by a dental professional.

Although sophisticated and expensive instrumentation methods have occasionally been employed to determine VSC, Interscan's Halimeter® is the first unit specifically designed to measure VSC in a dental office setting.

HalimeterMany practitioners find it quite beneficial to use the Halimeter® in conjunction with a recording device. One popular option is a strip chart recorder (penwriter), also offered by Interscan. In this way, a record called a HALIGRAM® may be obtained, which is important for comparison between readings.

The Halimeter® is intended to be utilized as part of a total program, encompassing a thorough history and physical examination of the patient. The emotional involvement of many patients with chronic halitosis, as well as the possibility that underlying conditions may be present, require that the dental practitioner follow a well-established diagnosis/treatment protocol.

The Halimeter® has found its greatest acceptance as a result of the recognition that chronic halitosis is nearly always a dental problem. Complementing this is the availability of special formulation mouthwashes and tongue cleaners which remove the VSC's and may also kill the offending bacteria.

In just a few short years the Halimeter® has become the premier instrument for chronic halitosis research, diagnosis, and therapy. Used by over 3,000 dentists in private practice and academia, the Halimeter® offers greatly enhanced patient outcomes in the treatment of oral malodor. Your dentist will use the Halimeter® to determine the source of the oral malodor, determine its severity, and monitor the progress of treatment. The good news is that your condition is curable in virtually 100% of all cases.
