Interaction Between Chlorhexidine and Fluoride

2016-10-18 02:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aim of the present study was to study if there are interactions and reduced clinical effect between chlorhexidine and fluoride when they are combined in the same mouthrinse.

Description

The investigation assessed the clinical effect of a mouthrinse containing chlorhexidine (CHX) and sodium fluoride (NaF) during a 4-day period of non-brushing and a 6-week period of brushing. Two studies were designed as double-blind, randomized, cross-over clinical trials. In study I, 16 healthy subjects rinsed twice daily for 1 min during 4 days of no tooth brushing with four mouthrinse solutions: 1) 0.12% CHX + 0.2% NaF, 2) 0.2% NaF, 3) 0.12% CHX, and 4) placebo. In study 2, 16 healthy subjects rinsed with the same four solutions twice daily after tooth brushing during a 6-week period. Primary outcomes were plaque formation and gingivitis. Secondary outcomes were fluoride retention and microbiological parameters in plaque and saliva (total bacterial counts and mutans streptococci, lactobacilli and streptococci sanguinis counts). One way analyses of variance with post hoc Student-Newman-Keul´s statistical test was performed for comparisons between mouthrinses. Intragroup changes over time were analyzed with a paired t-test.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disinfectant and topical anti-infective agent used also as mouthwash to prevent oral plaque.

Any restorative and replacement device that is used as a therapeutic aid in the treatment of periodontal disease. It is an adjunct to other forms of periodontal therapy and does not cure periodontal disease by itself. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 3d ed)

Loss or destruction of periodontal tissue caused by periodontitis or other destructive periodontal diseases or by injury during instrumentation. Attachment refers to the periodontal ligament which attaches to the alveolar bone. It has been hypothesized that treatment of the underlying periodontal disease and the seeding of periodontal ligament cells enable the creating of new attachment.

A numerical rating scale for classifying the periodontal status of a person or population with a single figure which takes into consideration prevalence as well as severity of the condition. It is based upon probe measurement of periodontal pockets and on gingival tissue status.

A species of bacteria in the family SPIROCHAETACEAE, frequently isolated from periodontal pockets (PERIODONTAL POCKET).
