The aim of this study was to examine the bactericidal effects and bactericidal time of an acidified sodium chlorite compound gel (ASC-Gel) on bacteria isolated from the peri-implant sulci of 10 patients who received implants 3-27 years previously, and the depth of each peri-implant sulcus was 5 mm or less. Porphyromonas gingivalis (ATCC33277) was used as the control bacterium. Five ASC-Gel preparations were created by adding 3.3%, 5.0%, 7.0%, 9.0%, and 11.0% citric acid (CA) (condition a, b, c…

Effects of Chlorine Dioxide on Oral Hygiene - A Systematic Review and 
Chlorine dioxide reduces both plaque and gingival indices and bacterial counts in the oral cavity similar to other routinely used oral rinses, however, the evidence supporting this is very limited.


The comparative effect of acidified sodium chlorite and chlorhexidine mouthrinses on plaque regrowth and salivary bacterial counts.
The results indicate that the 3 ASC rinses have equivalent plaque inhibitory action to chlorhexidine as a rinse, which appears to be derived from a persistence of antimicrobial action in the mouth.
Antibacterial effect of chlorine dioxide and hyaluronate on dental biofilm
The objective of this study is to investigate antimicrobial action of chlorine dioxide (ClO(2)) gel and hyaluronate gel (Gengigel (R)) on dental biofilm. Pooled supra and subgingival dental biofilm
Clinical and microbiological efficacy of chlorine dioxide in the management of chronic atrophic candidiasis: an open study.
ClO2 provided a safe and clinically effective option in the management of chronic atrophic candidiasis and showed marked improvement in the clinical appearance of the tissues after 10 days, with total resolution in the majority of cases.
Clinical, microbiologic, and biochemical effects of subgingival administration of a Xanthan-based chlorhexidine gel in the treatment of periodontitis: a randomized multicenter trial.
This multicenter randomized study investigated the effects of a xanthan-based chlorhexidine (Xan-CHX) gel used as an adjunct to scaling and root planing (SRP) in the treatment of chronic periodontitis and found that the adjunctive use of Xan-CHx gel promoted greater PD reductions and CAL gains compared to SRP alone.
Chlorine dioxide and chlorhexidine mouthrinses compared in a 3-day plaque accumulation model.
Chlorine dioxide mouthrinse seems to be a less potent plaque inhibitor than chlorhexidine during 3 days of plaque accumulation.
Clinical and microbiologic effects of chemical versus mechanical cleansing in professional supportive implant therapy.
This short-term study employing a high recall frequency indicates that local application of 35% phosphoric acid gel can be as effective as conventional mechanical supportive therapy.
Efficacy of a chlorine dioxide-containing mouthrinse in oral malodor.
It is demonstrated that a one-time use of a chlorine dioxide-containing mouthrinse significantly improves mouth odor pleasantness, reduces mouth odor intensity, and reduces volatile sulfur compound concentrations in mouth air for at least 8 hours after use.
Chlorhexidine spray versus mouthwash in the control of dental plaque after implant surgery.
The present study indicates that the efficacy of CHX spray in the post-surgical control of dental plaque is similar to that ofCHX mouthwash, however, tooth staining is significantly lower in the spray group at sites not surgically involved.
Effects of a mouthwash with chlorine dioxide on oral malodor and salivary bacteria: a randomized placebo-controlled 7-day trial
After rinsing with the mouthwash containing ClO2 for 7 days, morning bad breath decreased as measured by the OM and reduced the concentrations of H2S, CH3SH and (CH3)2S measured by GC, were found.
