The goal of this study was to examine the efficacy of different mouthwashes (alcohol and nonalcohol based) in reducing oral malodour in moderate gingivitis patients. MATERIALS & METHODS: Forty patients with moderate gingivitis were randomly assigned to one of four groups: group 1 (Peridex-alcohol based), group 2 (hiora-non alchohol based), group 3 (orofresh-non alchohol based), and group 4 (orofresh-non alchohol based) (control group). After 15 days and 30 days, clinical measures such as the Oral hygiene index – simplified (OHI-S- Green and Vermellion), Plaque index (PI- Sillness and Loe), Modified sulcular bleeding index (MSBI-Mombelli et al), and Organoleptic score were evaluated. At baseline and after 30 days, microbiologic examination by colony counting was performed. RESULTS: The one-way Anova test was used for statistical analysis, followed by the Post Hoc Tukey test..The results revealed no differences in the OHI, PI and MSBI in the four groups at baseline while after 15 days and 30 days evaluation there was significant reduction in group 1and 2 however there was an increase in values with group 3. Comparison of halitosis in different groups at base line, 15 days and 30 days were done by chi square test. Results revealed a significant difference between all groups with reduction of halitosis at 30 days of evaluation. Microbial analysis by colony counting revealed significant reduction in early colonizers with predominant reduction of Porphyromonasgingivalis in group I at 30 days evaluation. CONCLUSION: Herbal mouth rinses can be used as a supplement to periodontal therapy, however more research into the therapeutic effects of herbal mouth rinses in reducing periodontal infection and inflammation in a broad population is needed.
