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.
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.

Chlorhexidine is the gold standard of dental plaque prevention, but which concentration is the most effective is not known. The aim of the present study was to compare the plaque and gingi...
The aim of this study is to provide evidence on the clinical efficacy of SmartMouth Advanced Clinical Formula mouthrinse in comparison to the efficacy of 0.12% chlorhexidine mouthrinse and...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of a new mouthrinse on dental plaque deposits. The study is carried out on 50 volunteers that are asked to use the mouthrinse wit...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the antiplaque effects of an alcohol-free essential-oil containing mouthrinse - Listerine Zero (LZ) and an alcohol-based essential oils (EO+) mouth...
A clinical study to evaluate the effect of a commercial mouth rinse on plaque re-growth
In recent years, different chlorhexidine formulations have been tested, including an alcohol-free alternative, but the effect of this solution on early biofilm formation is not clear. A crossover, ran...
Preoperative bathing with 4% chlorhexidine is recommended as a measure to prevent surgical site infection (SSI) despite uncertainty regarding the effectiveness of the intervention. This review aimed t...
To investigate ocular bacterial count before and after antisepsis with aqueous chlorhexidine (AC) or povidone-iodine (PI) and to assess discomfort with each agent.
This study evaluated the effect of the pre-treatment with 2% chlorhexidine digluconate (CHX) as coadjutant in restoration retention of noncarious cervical lesions (NCCL), after 36 months of follow-up.
The prevention of alveolar osteitis (AO) in dental extractions remains a controversial issue. Chlorhexidine is one of the most widely studied antiseptics for the prevention of AO. The purpose of this ...
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).
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Clinical trials are a set of procedures in medical research conducted to allow safety (or more specifically, information about adverse drug reactions and adverse effects of other treatments) and efficacy data to be collected for health interventions (e.g...
