Clinical Trial Summary

Improvement of oral hygiene maintenance is very important during fixed orthodontic appliance treatment to prevent the degenerative effects. Different mouthwashes are available in market but this study is being conducted to check the effects of Moring Oleifera mouth wash against the development of Gingivitis, Periodontitis, Plaque formation, Enamel Demineralization /white spot lesion, discoloration and bacterial load in dental plaque during the fixed orthodontic treatment.

Clinical Trial Description

With the increase in desire of improved facial and dental aesthetics among all social classes, the numbers of cases being treated with fixed orthodontic appliances are increasing. It is difficult to maintain certain standard of oral hygiene with the braces on, so the iatrogenic degenerative effects of fixed orthodontic appliances are somewhat inevitable. Along with proper brushing and flossing orthodontists advise the use of mouthwash as well in order to prevent or lessen the severity of gingivitis, periodontitis, gingival hyperplasia, demineralization, white spot lesions, discoloration of teeth etc. Plenty of mouth washes are available in market containing varying concentration of different chemicals promising to improve the oral health and reduce inflammation. But all of them having certain side effects most common being the discoloration. The focus is being shifted to natural ingredients to gain the same or even better results with minimum to zero side effects. In quest of getting closer to Mother Nature Moringa Oleifera leaf was discovered in 1785 in Indian Subcontinent. Moringa Oleifera is a nutraceutical and well known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-cancer, anti-diabetes, anti-rheumatoid arthritis, hepatoprotective, Steroid-genesis modulators and neuroprotective functions and many other properties. Its leaves evidently contain various natural anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant substances namely flavonoid, phenolic and carotenoid. Besides, MO leaves also rich in protein, vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium and potassium. Flavonoids may act as antioxidant by scavenging free radical and protecting the cell from oxidative stress. Recently quite a lot work has been done on flavonoids in dentistry which includes anti-bacterial/anti-cariogenic effects, reduction in plague formation, Treatment in surgical wounds, reduction in dentinal hypersensitivity, treatment of periodontitis and gingivitis because of its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative effects. Previously studies have been done to check the efficacy of different herbal mouthwashes but no study has been done to check the efficacy of MO leaf extract mouth wash on the oral health of the patients having fixed orthodontic treatment ;
