Antibacterial Effect of Mouthwashes against Selected Bacteria

Heba Saed Kariem Alawamleh.

Today, with the development of the concept of preventive dentistry and the awareness of the society, the oral care habits of individuals have developed, especially in urban areas. The aim here is to spread protective practices and this awareness to the whole society. While oral care habits are limited to brushing teeth, the importance given to interface cleaning today has increased the importance of using dental floss interface brush, toothpick and mouthwash. Research shows how important the use of mouthwash is for oral and dental health. Initially, mouthwashes, which were used for cosmetic purposes such as removing bad breath, are now becoming an indispensable part of oral care habits due to their many benefits.In this in vitro study, the antibacterial effects of six different mouthwashes on S.mutans, E.faecalis, Bacillus subtilis, Lactobacillus casei, S. aureus were investigated using the Agar Diffusion Test. In order to examine the antibacterial effects of different mouthwashes, 7 slots of 5 mm width were opened on the agar plates. Each mouthwash was placed in these slots and one was left blank as the control group. After 24 hours, evaluations were made by measuring the areas of inhibition against the tested microorganisms. Kruskal Wallis and Mann Whitney U Test were used for statistical analysis of the results. The tested mouthwashes were found to have antibacterial effects on 5 different micro-organisms (P
