Details and patient eligibility


Aim: clinical effectiveness of 0.05% cetylpyridinium chloride mouth rinse in patients with gingivitis as compared to non-alcoholic chlorhexidine mouth wash. Methods & Material: Twenty-four subjects, without systemic diseases, with plaque-induced gingivitis will be selected for this study. The patients were treated with scaling and root planing at the baseline; Oral hygiene instructions were given that included brushing twice- daily, The volunteers brushed their teeth with the Bass brushing technique for at least 2 minutes, these patients were randomly ,equally divided into two groups, Group A: perform daily mouthwashes twice a day with the solution containing 10 ml of 0.05 cetyl pyridinium, (Vi-one, Rojin, Cosmetic-Lab, Kurdistan -Iran), Group B: use daily mouthwashes twice a day with 10ml of the chlorhexidine(Kin Laboratories, Spain), On day 0,7,15 and day 21 of each phase the Plaque Index (PI), Pocket depth(PD), Stain Index(SI) and Bleeding Index (BI) of each volunteer were measured.

Full description

In this study, 34 patients referred to periodontics Department that no serious systemic disease in terms of periodontitis and disease Gingivitis (ie pockets of periodontal tissue to a depth of less than or equal to 4 mm without CAL in the jaw down or up) the following explanation necessary for the procedure tastings consent, the index of oral hygiene (plaque index) index # Turesky, pocket depth and to control the inflammatory condition * bleeding index bleeding during the probe based on Carter and Barnes (if any bleeding number 1 and its absence 0) and attachment loss were evaluated areas. The amount of pigment (Stain) after of using mouthwash based on S.I (Stain Index) was evaluated .
