Abstract

Bad breath, or in general terms called halitosis, is a term to describe the presence of an unpleasant odour when exhaled by air. The problem of halitosis is a problem that is often found in the community and is generally associated with poor oral hygiene conditions. Reducing the level of bad breath that is formed due to smelly gas can be done by reducing the formation of gas through the use of charcoal or carbon as a porous medium. The charcoal used as an absorbent medium has been converted into activated charcoal. The purpose of the study was to determine the analysis of the absorption of coconut shell activated charcoal powder solution through gargling to treat bad breath in the adult age group. The benefit of the research is to provide information to the public that coconut shell charcoal can be used to treat bad breath. The research method is a quasi-experimental research design with one group pretest and posttest experimental. The sample size is 34 respondents—sampling technique with inclusion and exclusion criteria. The results showed a change in the colour of the applicator before gargling with an activated charcoal solution for as many as 34 people (<30 minutes), meaning that the respondent was a patient with halitosis. While the change in colour of the applicator after gargling with activated charcoal solution showed as many as 18 people (30-90 minutes) of whom experienced a change from halitosis to occasional halitosis, the remaining 16 people (> 90 minutes) showed previously suffering from halitosis there were significant changes It means to be no or not halitosis. Conclusion Changes in the colour of the applicator before and after being given coconut shell activated charcoal solution showed a significant increase, meaning that there was a difference in absorption after gargling with coconut shell activated charcoal powder solution in overcoming bad breath.
