Sanguinaria toothpaste and oral rinse regimen clinical efficacy in short- and long-term trials.

Author information

  • 1University of Louisville.

Abstract

Short- and long-term testing of sanguinaria toothpaste and oral rinse used individually have yielded both positive and negative results. This review evaluates the results of a number of clinical trials testing the regimen use of sanguinaria products for periods ranging from 14 days to six months. Review of these trials establishes the clinical efficacy of the two products in combination. The regimen approach produces consistently positive reductions in plaque, gingival inflammation and bleeding parameters for up to six months with no adverse hard tissue effects and only one reversible adverse soft tissue effect observed among the 260 subjects tested. In addition, no adverse microbiological shifts in the normal oral flora were observed.
