A Protocol for the Use of Chlorhexidine Gluconate Saturation for the Reduction of Dental Biofilm Formation on Polymethylmethacrylate Restoration
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Chlorhexidine gluconate (CHX), as an anti plaque agent, is commonly used with a variety of products. In this study we, the investigators at Hadassah Medical Organization, intend to examine the efficacy of a single dip in CHX of provisional restoration prior to oral cementation. If the protocol is effective, we intend to calibrate it and recommend clinical use of the protocol. The examination of biofilm formation will be both with electron microscope and confocal scanning laser microscope.
