One of the common problems people experience during Ramadan is halitosis, which sometimes bother the peers as well as the fasting individuals. The study addresses the causes and methods of prevention of halitosis with regard to the sources of modern medicine and Traditional Iranian Medicine (TIM). In the study, we have introduced five factors as the commonest causes of halitosis. To avoid these factors, some suggestions including following health measures before and during Ramadan are provided. Considering the prevalence of halitosis and lack of appropriate training about its causes and the prevention methods, training people about nutrition and maintenance of health in the TIM along with dental care could play an important role in control of the problem.
