Abstract:

The aim of this study was to compare and evaluate the anti-caries effect essential oil mouthwash (EOM) and 0.2% Chlorhexidine mouthwash (CHX), on patients who have risk of caries. The evaluation was done clinically and microbiologically. The efficacy of three antiseptic mouth rinses was evaluated in this study for 30 patients; (15 patients in each group) with risk of dental caries. Oral hygiene index-simplified, plaque index and gingival index were recorded. The saliva samples were collected from the volunteers before and after 10 minutes after rinsing. Reduction of bacteria was then evaluated according to total number of colony forming unit (CFU) per ml. Plaque reduction showed, Oral hygiene index-simplified (OHI-S) reduction with 29% was seen in the CHX group and in the EOM group with 53%, Plaque index (PI) reduction14.6% and 0.6%, Gingivitis index (GI) reduction 11.7% and 16% for CHX and EOM respectively. The EOM has anti-caries and antiseptic effectiveness as CHX. Essential oil mouthwash is safe alternative for CHX.
