A professionally applied two-stage chlorhexidine varnish, Chlorzoin((R)), was developed to achieve sustained release and minimise the problems of staining and bad taste associated with chlorhexidine mouthrinses. The primary aim of this randomised controlled clinical trial was to assess the efficacy of Chlorzoin in reducing the caries increment in high-caries-risk adolescents. Secondary aims included investigating the effect of compliance upon caries increment, the effect of Chlorzoin upon… CONTINUE READING
