dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study was to assess whether a mouthwash containing carbohydrate derived fulvic acid, is effective in reducing the salivary microbial count pre-operatively. Endeavours have been made to reduce the risk of infection, bacteraemia and cross-contamination during dental procedures by the application of topical antimicrobial agents. To date chlorhexidine is the most widely evaluated and efficacious agent against oral biofilms but there have been reports of adverse effects ranging from contact dermatitis to severe anaphylactic shock. A new mouth rinse containing carbohydrate derived fulvic acid are reported to have broad spectrum antimicrobial activity against specific oral microbes and Candida albicans with no side effects.
