Clinical Effect of Chlorhexidine Mouthwash After Periodontal Surgery

2020-01-15 10:26:56 | BioPortfolio


Chlorhexidine is the gold standard of dental plaque prevention. Recent research have demonstrated that 0.2% Chlorhexidine solutions are more effective than 0.12% and 0.06% Chlorhexidine solutions. Several 0.2% solutions are available on the market. This study aimed to compare effectiveness of two commercially available 0.2% chlorhexidine mouthwashes. Patients, that after initial periodontal therapy, had a need for two periodontal surgeries, will be invited to join. After one surgical session, the patient will receive one 0.2% chlorhexidine solution, and after the next surgical session the patient will receive the other 0.2% chlorhexidine solution. Plaque and gingivitis will be recorded, as well as side effects.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

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.

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)

Pathological processes involving the PERIODONTIUM including the gum (GINGIVA), the alveolar bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS), the DENTAL CEMENTUM, and the PERIODONTAL LIGAMENT.

Techniques for enhancing and directing cell growth to repopulate specific parts of the PERIODONTIUM that have been damaged by PERIODONTAL DISEASES; TOOTH DISEASES; or TRAUMA, or to correct TOOTH ABNORMALITIES. Repopulation and repair is achieved by guiding the progenitor cells to reproduce in the desired location by blocking contact with surrounding tissue by use of membranes composed of synthetic or natural material that may include growth inducing factors as well.
