Abstract

ABSTRACT: Background: The efficacy of Persica mouthwash and chlorhexidine gluconate mouthwash in prevention of gingivitis and plaque formation was compared. Materials and Methods: A total of 60 randomly selected dogs visited in the Dr.Shamshiry Veterinary Clinic were considered for the study.The dogs divided into three groups of 20 subjects each one. Researchers applied Persica to group one, chlorhexidine gluconate mouthwash 0.2% to group two and finally in the control group, normal saline were used. The gingival index (GI) by Loe and Silness was recorded which was followed by Turesky- Gilmore-Glickman modification of Quigley Hein plaque index (TQHPI) on 0, 14 and 21 days. Results: Chlorhexidine and Persica showed a significant reduction in Plaque and gingival index scores from baseline to 14 and 21 days. However, the improvement in plaque and gingival index scores in chlorhexidine group was better than Persica. Conclusion: Herbal mouthwash of Persica was effective in reducing plaque accumulation and gingival inflammation and had no adverse effects, but Chlorhexidine still remains a gold standard.
