Abstract

Dental plaque is the principal etiological agent for the development and progression of gingival and
periodontal diseases. Three different mouthwash types were compared in this study for the periodontal
healing process based on the results. For all bacterial strains, the culture type collection is used. The serial
dilution process is used for preparing every mouthwash and adding it to the tubes with a specific dilution. In
certain microorganisms of the respective mouthwash, the last tube dilution that does not show any turbidity
will be considered MIC. The three types of mouthwashes were compared in terms of the ability to inhibit
microbial growth. Twenty-four hours after the agar was solidified and the colony forms (CFU) units counted,
the plates were incubated. This study showed that bacterial growth inhibition might occur in the three types
of mouthwash. Boht, Behsa and Kin-gingival mouthwashes had a significant difference in their antimicrobial
effect. This study showed that they were unable to perform s after 24 hours of in vitro incubation while the
bacterial count was lowered after two weeks of in vivo use in the boht washings. Continuous exposure to
bacteria may be necessary to wash the mouth, especially for Behsa and Boht. It is difficult to remove all
bacteria from the mechanical plaque controls; antibacterial mouthwash can cause additive. In the current
study, three types of mouthwash have compared antimicrobial effects. The results showed only that bacterial
counts are affected by mouthwash. Based on this study’s results, Boht mouthwash is more effective than
Kin Gingival and Behsa mouthwash for oral microorganisms, but further clinical studies are necessary to
confirm our findings.
