Abstract

Oral hygiene is an important element in the prevention of oral diseases. While the main stream of maintaining good oral hygiene is by mechanical plaque control, there are still situations where chemical plaque control is needed. Out of all the currently available chemical plaque control methods, mouth rinse is the most easily available and widely used product. Currently there are a lot of mouthrinse products with different active ingredients in the market with different claimed actions. In this seminar, an overview of the available mouth rinse products will be given. A special focus will be given to chlorhexidine, which is a common mouth rinse used in relation to the management of periodontal disease. The related evidence for its use, and prevention of caries and periodontal disease will be discussed and recommendations on the use of these products will also be given.

Abstract

Dental caries remains a public health problem in Hong Kong and worldwide as it affects all age groups with onset in childhood and increases with age over the life course. Dental amalgam, containing 50% mercury, has been commonly used as a restorative material to fill cavities. World Health Organisation considers mercury to be one of the top 10 chemicals of major environmental and public health concern. The Minamata Convention on Mercury is a global treaty aiming to protect human health and the environment from emissions and releases of mercury and mercury compounds. Minimal intervention restorations using adhesive materials such as glass ionomer cement and composite resin can preserve the natural tooth, making this intervention potentially beneficial to the lifelong oral health of the patients. Minimally invasive interventions may also include secondary prevention, such as fluoride varnish and silver diamine fluoride application. The updated evidence-based information on caries management with mercury-free products and minimal intervention as alternatives to the use of dental amalgam will be presented and discussed.
