Intervention Details:
    Other: Colgate Total Toothpaste
    Toothbrushing with Colgate Total Toothpaste
    Other Names:
    • triclosan
    • dentifrice
    Other: Colgate Regular Toothpaste
    Toothbrushing with Colgate regular toothpaste
    Other Names:
    • fluoride
    • dentifrice
Detailed Description:
This study may provide evidence on the effect of triclosan containing dentifrice on oral bacteria and oral inflammation prior to third molar surgery, and on the incidence of inflammatory complications after the surgery. If proven effective, dentifrice containing triclosan may be recommended prior to tooth extractions and replace antibiotics and other antimicrobial products as a prophylactic procedure before oral surgery procedures.
