OBJECTIVES The aim of this in vivo study was to compare the anti-plaque effect of warm and cold chlorhexidine gluconate irrigation on matured human plaque. METHODS In a split-mouth design, the antibacterial effect of 47 degrees C "warm" 0.2% chlorhexidine solution was compared with that of 18 degrees C "cold" rinse at the same concentration on newly-formed supragingival plaque that had been left undisturbed for 72 h. Before and 1 h after a 1-min rinse procedure, plaque was sampled from 10… CONTINUE READING
