Comparative Evaluation Of Antimicrobial Effect Of Turmeric Mouthwash And Chlorhexidine Mouthwash Against Oral Microbes In Orthodontic Patients- An In-Vitro Study

Author: DR.ARATHI M, DR.S.P.SARAVANA DINESH, DR.A.S.SMILINEGIRIJA
Abstract: Fixed orthodontic appliances are associated with increased retention of dental plaque and thus increased microbial count. Chlorhexidine gluconate is the gold standard chemical agent with antiplaque and antimicrobial property. At the same time chlorhexidine has various side effects. Therefore, it is necessary to identify an alternative chemical agent. Turmeric, a common household ingredient, has a high place in Ayurvedic medicine as an antibacterial and antiinflammatory agent. The aim of the study is to compare the antimicrobial effect of turmeric mouthwash and chlorhexidine mouthwash against oral microbes in orthodontic patients. It is a prospective study where thirty orthodontic wires were obtained from 15 orthodontic patients. The posterior segments of the wire were cut into 3 segments forming 3 groups. Group 1 was not exposed to any mouthwash. Group 2 and 3 were immersed in chlorhexidine and turmeric mouthwash respectively, for 3 minutes. Swab was obtained from 3 groups and streaked on agar medium. Microbial colony count was performed after 24 hours incubation at 37 0 C. ANOVA and post hoc tests were done to compare the three groups. There was a significant reduction in microbial count with the use of chlorhexidine and turmeric mouthwash. Turmeric mouthwash is a potential antimicrobial mouthwash.Clinical use of turmeric mouthwash can be advocated after long term clinical trial on a large sample.
