- Chronic inflammation of the gum tissue surrounding the teeth is associated with the bacterial biofilm (plaque) that covers the teeth and gums. Gingivitis was once seen as the first stage in a chronic degenerative process which resulted in the loss of both gum and bone tissue surrounding the teeth. It is now recognised that gin-givitis can be reversed by effective personal oral hygiene practices through both mechanical and chemical plaque control. The principle routes to chemical plaque control are to prevent colonization of the tooth surface, to inhibit the growth of microorganisms, the prevent plaque maturation, to modify plaque biochemistry and to modify plaque ecology to a less pathogenic flora. The present study was done to compare the feedback for the chlorhexidine (CHX) and anti-calculus mouthrinse after 6 months of compliance. The results confirmed that CHX had noticeable clinical side effects as compared to anti-calculus mouthrinse.
