Background & Aim: Although it is shown that chlorhexidine can have a positive effect on periodontal indices, the resulting stains, prevent it to be prescribed for long term use. Therefore, we studied the effect of low concentration chlorhexidine on the periodontal indices and the level of staining in orthodontic patients.

Methods & materials: This study was conducted in a single blind randomized clinical trial with 20 patients (aged 14-30) undergoing fixed orthodontic treatment. Subjects were divided into two groups of 10, with group 1 on the Orthokin 0.06% chx mouthwash, and group 2 on the Orthokin 0.08% chx mouthwash.This three month study was divided into two phases.In each session, PI, GBI, GI and SI indices were measured. The cross over between the groups took place after 3 weeks wash out. Wilcoxon sign Rank test, Mann-Whitney test, Paired T-test and Independent T-test were performed for statistical analyzing.

Result: A significant decrease in both GI and GBI compared to baseline was observed in both phases. (p<0.005) In case of PI, in phase I, a significant decrease compared to baseline was observed in both groups. (p<0.005) In case of SI، In phase II, both products showed a significant increase in staining (p<0.005).

Conclusion: The results of this study suggest that Orthokin oral health products with low concentration of chlorhexidine play an important role in reducing PI, GI and GBI indicators in patients undergoing fixed orthodontic treatment. However, further studies with larger patient populations are recommended.
