The Effects of Pistacia Mutica on De Novo Dental Plaque Formation, Gingival Inflammation and Oral Microorganisms
Dental plaque is a well known etiologic factor for gingivitis. Recently, herbal extracts are a matter of scientific interest to inhibit plaque accumulation on teeth. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of pistacia Mutica (PM) mouth wash on de novo dental plaque plaque formation, gingival inflammation indices and oral microorganisms.

Thyroid Extract, Desiccated
A dehydrated extract of thyroid glands. After the removal of fat and connective tissue, the extract is dried or lyophilized to yield a yellowish to buff-colored amorphous powder containing 0.17-0.23% of iodine.
Gingivitis, Necrotizing Ulcerative
An acute or chronic GINGIVITIS characterized by redness and swelling, NECROSIS extending from the interdental papillae along the gingival margins, PAIN; HEMORRHAGE, necrotic odor, and often a pseudomembrane. The condition may extend to the ORAL MUCOSA; TONGUE; PALATE; or PHARYNX. The etiology is somewhat unclear, but may involve a complex of FUSOBACTERIUM NUCLEATUM along with spirochetes BORRELIA or TREPONEMA.
A loss of mucous substance of the mouth showing local excavation of the surface, resulting from the sloughing of inflammatory necrotic tissue. It is the result of a variety of causes, e.g., denture irritation, aphthous stomatitis (STOMATITIS, APHTHOUS); NOMA; necrotizing gingivitis (GINGIVITIS, NECROTIZING ULCERATIVE); TOOTHBRUSHING; and various irritants. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p842)
A plant genus in the ANACARDIACEAE family known for the Pistachio nuts and for gum Mastic.
A disinfectant and topical anti-infective agent used also as mouthwash to prevent oral plaque.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the performance of two toothpastes in controlling established gingivitis and dental plaque in adults.
The purpose of this study is to explore the dose-response relationship of Iocide oral rinse in a clinical trial of gingivitis. Approximately sixty (60) otherwise healthy subjects having g...
The goal of this clinical research study is to find out if 1% chlorhexidine gluconate gel will decrease the amount of bacteria that causes tooth decay. Whether the gel is acceptable to pat...
