Product Description
Microbial plaque is widely recognized as the primary etiologic agent in the cause of gingivitis and periodontitis. Mechanical means of plaque control (flossing and brushing) alone have limitations. The addition of various chemical agents, such as mouth rinses, has been shown to increase the efficacy of plaque removal. Most commercial mouth rinses contain alcohol in varying concentrations, which can cause potentially deleterious side effects.1 Guha and colleagues2 proposed that the daily use of alcohol-containing mouth rinses may be an independent cause of oral cancer. Additionally, alcohol-containing mouth rinses have been linked to xerostomia, tissue irritation and ulceration, as well as causing the surface softening of dental resins.3
