Abstract
Objective: This study was carried out to investigate the effect of dentifrice containing green tea extract, sodium monofluorophosphate and calcium carbonate on dental plaque and gingivitis by periodic measurements.
Methods: Oral examination items were measured by papillary marginal attached (PMA) index, Talbott’s gingival index, patient hygiene performance (PHP) index, and Turesky’s plaque index.
Results: PMA index showed statistically significant difference in the control group (p<0.05). Talbott’s gingival index measurements showed statistically significant differences in the control group from 8 weeks after the start of the study (p<0.05). As a result of PHP index measurement, statistically significant differences were observed in the experimental group from the control group after 4 weeks (p<0.01). And Turesky’s plaque index measurement, statistically significant differences were observed in the experimental group from the control group after 4 weeks (p<0.01).
Conclusion: These results suggest that dentifrice with green tea extract, sodium monofluorophosphate and calcium carbonate can be effective in reducing gingivitis and dental plaque.
