Aim: To evaluate the inhibition of plaque growth by an experimental mouthrinse (BioXyl®) based on hydrogen peroxide/glycerol.
Design: It was a double-blind, randomized study involving 40 volunteers in good general health. At the start of the trial, all participants received a dental prophylaxis to remove all plaque deposits. During the next 3 days subjects refrained from any mechanical oral hygiene procedure, except for the allocated mouthrinse being either the hydrogen peroxide (H2O2; 0.013% H2O2/0.004% glycerol) or the placebo without H2O2. At the third day of appointment, plaque levels were assessed at six sites per tooth.
Results: The test group had a mean overall plaque score of 2.66 and the placebo group of 2.70. The difference in plaque scores between the two groups was not statistically significant.
Conclusions: The results of this pilot study showed that there was no statistically significant difference between the H2O2/glycerol group and the placebo group with respect to plaque inhibition within this study design.
