  • A double-blind crossover study on 4 adult volunteers was performed to evaluate the effect of hexetidine on Cu2+ accumulation in dental plaque as well as a possible enhanced effect of copper on inhibition of acid production in the presence of hexetidine. The experimental period was 5 days. No oral hygiene was allowed, and sucrose-containing chewing gum was used to enhance plaque formation during the test period. In order to evaluate the effect on pH, the test persons rinsed with a 15% glucose (w… CONTINUE READING
