Plaque accumulation on tooth and gingival surfaces is a causative factor for oral diseases such as demineralization, dental caries, gingivitis, and periodontitis.
Tooth brushing and flossing have been the cornerstone of oral hygiene and health. However, the high incidence and prevalence of gum problems in both the developed and developing world show these mechanical routines are not enough. Furthermore, many patients find it difficult to comply with this daily regime of brushing and flossing. Consistent with problems associated with maintaining oral health, periodontal disease is one of the most common chronic infections in adults. According to Philstrom, et al. up to 90% of the world's population has or will suffer from periodontal disease.Thus, the maintenance of an adequate level of plaque control by the individual through his or her daily oral hygiene is vital to prevent and control periodontal disease. Studies demonstrate that poor oral hygiene is widespread with about 60% of plaque found on the surfaces of the teeth after brushing. This may be due to the lack of manipulative skills, lack of motivation and compliance.Hence, increasing education and improving brushing technique by improving oral hygiene products is one way to enhance plaque removal in everyday brushing. The ability to see plaque while brushing will enhance patient's awareness and encourage them to be more thorough when performing oral hygiene.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Chronic Gingivitis, Plaque Induced||Other: Shoplaq toothpaste Other: Colgate toothpaste||Not Applicable|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||50 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||interventional preventive trial|
|Masking:||Double (Care Provider, Outcomes Assessor)|
|Masking Description:||Toothpaste tubes will be masked so the care provider would not know which tube he/she allocating to the participants as well the outcome assessor would be masked from both groups ( test and control) so data is assessed unbiased.|
