Dental plaque is the most important etiological factor of periodontal diseases. Mechanical plaque control is the most effective way in preventing periodontal diseases. Chemical plaque control methods (such as mouthrinses) have been recommended to be used because of some drawbacks in the mechanical methods in some areas of the dentition (such as interproximal areas). But are these mouthrinses really effective in those areas? The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of Essential Oils mouthrinse (Listerine) on plaque formation in interproximal areas with Chlorhexidine and Sterile water.
