Abstract

Objective: To compare the reduction of plaque and gingivitis from the following three toothpaste formulations containing: 0.3% Triclosan, 1,000ppm fluoride and 0.13% calcium glycerophosphate in a natural calcium carbonate base (a new paste); 0.2% Triclosan and 1,000ppm fluoride in a precipitated calcium carbonate base; 0.3% Triclosan, 1,000ppm fluoride and Gantrez in a silica base. A control group was maintained, which used commercially available toothpastes without the above actives. Methods: A double-blind, four-cell, stratified, parallel group design study. Subjects brushed twice daily with their allocated toothpaste for 12 weeks. Plaque, MGI and gingival bleeding assessments were carried out at baseline, after 6 and 12 weeks of product use. Results and conclusion: An analysis of covariance of the 12-week results showed significant differences between products [p<0.0001] for plaque, MGI and gingival bleeding. The new toothpaste formulation containing 0.3% Triclosan, 1,000ppm fluoride and 0.13% calcium glycerophosphate in a natural calcium carbonate base was shown to be significantly more effective in reducing plaque and gingivitis than the other toothpaste formulations in the study.
