OBJECTIVE The purpose of this twenty-eight day, randomized, single-blind clinical trial was to assess the efficacy of the addition of daily oral irrigation to both power and manual tooth brushing, compared to a traditional regimen of manual tooth brushing and flossing, to determine which regimen had the greatest effect on the reduction of gingival bleeding, gingivitis, and supragingival plaque. METHODOLOGY The study was designed for a total of 105 subjects to participate in a twenty-eight day… 
Comparative Evaluation of Oral Irrigator and Dental Floss as an adjunct to Tooth Brushing on Reduction of Plaque and Gingivitis- A Randomized, Single Blind Clinical Study of Rural Patients
Aim: The purpose of this short-term, randomized trial was to assess the efficacy of the addition of daily oral irrigation and dental floss to manual tooth brushing and also compared to determine
The addition of a water flosser to power tooth brushing: effect on bleeding, gingivitis, and plaque.
TLDR
The Waterpik Complete Care is significantly more effective than the Sonicare FlexCare toothbrush for reducing gingival bleeding, gingivitis, and plaque.
Comparison between powerful Waterpik flosser with dental floss as an adjunct to tooth brushing
TLDR
Waterpik flosser was more effective in reducing dental plaque and bleeding than dental floss.
Comparative evaluation of tooth wipe and manual toothbrush on reduction of microbial plaque
TLDR
The results indicate the tooth wipe is as effective as the manual toothbrush and can be used for marinating oral hygiene.
Comparative Evaluation of Tooth Wipe and Manual Toothbrush on Reduction of Microbial Plaque
TLDR
The results indicate the tooth wipe is as effective as the manual toothbrush and can be used for marinating oral hygiene.
Evaluation of the plaque removal efficacy of a water flosser compared to string floss in adults after a single use.
TLDR
The Waterpik Water Flosser and manual toothbrush is significantly more effective than a manual brush and string floss in removing plaque from tooth surfaces.
Comparison of two power interdental cleaning devices on the reduction of gingivitis.
TLDR
The Waterpik Water Flosser is significantly more effective than Sonicare Air Floss for reducing gingivitis and plaque.
Effect of Philips Sonicare AirFloss on plaque index, gingival index, and bleeding index in patients with fixed orthodontic appliances
TLDR
This four week, randomized, single-blinded, split mouth clinical trial in orthodontic patients compared interproximal cleaning using a Philips Sonicare AirFloss and manual toothbrushing in order to determine which regimen was more effective in reducing supragingival plaque and bleeding on probing.
Efficacy of Two Interdental Cleaning Devices on Clinical Signs of Inflammation: A Four-Week Randomized Controlled Trial.
TLDR
The Waterpik Water Flosser is significantly more effective than the Sonicare Air Floss Pro for reducing clinical signs of inflammation.

TLDR
A DWJ with a specialized orthodontic jet tip is effective for adolescents in fixed orthodentic appliances; it demonstrated beneficial results for the reduction of plaque and bleeding.

Comparison of different approaches of interdental oral hygiene: interdental brushes versus dental floss.
TLDR
Compared in untreated patients suffering from moderate to severe periodontitis the efficacy of dental floss and interdental brushes in the reduction of plaque, gingival inflammation, and probing depth in a 6-week period prior to subgingival debridement indicates that in combination with a manual toothbrush, the use of interd dental brushes is more effective in removal of plaque and results in a larger reduction of probing depth.
The effect of professional and home subgingival irrigation with antimicrobial agents on gingivitis and early periodontitis.
TLDR
Professional subgingival irrigation with stannous fluoride, when combined with home subgesival delivery of an iodine solution, was effective in improving gingival health for patients with gingivitis and early periodontitis.
Supragingival irrigation with 0.06% chlorhexidine in naturally occurring gingivitis. I. 6 month clinical observations.
The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of supragingival irrigation with 0.06% chlorhexidine gluconate (CHX) on naturally occurring gingivitis. The relative benefit of CHX irrigation in
Short-term microbiological and clinical effects of subgingival irrigation with an antimicrobial mouthrinse.
TLDR
Clinically, subgingival irrigation with the antimicrobial mouthrinse produced a significant reduction in supragingival plaque, bleeding on probing, and redness compared to the control, whether or not the area irrigated received a prophylaxis.
Mechanism of irrigation effects on gingivitis.
TLDR
Gingival index (GI) was significantly correlated with PI in the brush, CHX, and irr+CHX groups, but not in the irr-H2O group, and Prevotella intermedia was significantly reduced in both irrigation groups,but not CHX or brush groups.
Effectiveness of adjunctive irrigation in early periodontitis: multi-center evaluation.
TLDR
Gingival index: irrigation with water (Group B) was significantly better than normal oral hygiene (Group A) and irrigation with zinc sulfate (Group C) (P < 0.05) in reducing gingival inflammation.
Irrigation with 0.06% chlorhexidine in naturally occurring gingivitis. II. 6 months microbiological observations.
TLDR
The 6-months results demonstrated that, when compared with tooth brushing alone, adjunctive supragingival irrigation with 0.06% chlorhexidine gluconate was most effective by significantly reducing both log10 CFU and % of Gram-negative anaerobic rods and black-pigmented Bacteroides.
Clinical evaluation of an automatic flossing device vs. manual flossing.
TLDR
Since there was a marked preference for the automatic flosser, patient compliance with theautomatic flossing device may be better than with manual floss, and overall gingival health may benefit from this device.
Clinical and microbiological effects of subgingival and gingival marginal irrigation with chlorhexidine gluconate.
TLDR
Chlorhexidine gluconate delivered by home-applied marginal irrigation as a 0.04% solution in combination with a single professional irrigation of 0.12% CHX was tested over a 3-month period and the Gingival Index and pocket probing depths were both significantly reduced compared to baseline.
Irrigation with chlorhexidine to resolve naturally occurring gingivitis. A methodologic study.
TLDR
Data indicate that delivery of CHX (0.06%) by an oral irrigator is an effective means of treating naturally occurring gingivitis.
