Brief Summary:
Chlorhexidine is the gold standard of dental plaque prevention. Recent research have demonstrated that 0.2% Chlorhexidine solutions are more effective than 0.12% and 0.06% Chlorhexidine solutions. Several 0.2% solutions are available on the market. This study aimed to compare effectiveness of two commercially available 0.2% chlorhexidine mouthwashes. Patients, that after initial periodontal therapy, had a need for two periodontal surgeries, will be invited to join. After one surgical session, the patient will receive one 0.2% chlorhexidine solution, and after the next surgical session the patient will receive the other 0.2% chlorhexidine solution. Plaque and gingivitis will be recorded, as well as side effects.
