Abstract

The aim of the study was to investigate the efficacy of the addition of funoran to xylitol chewing gum in dental plaque. In a double-blinded randomized controlled clinical trial, 36 health adults (21-30 years old), who volunteered after informed consent, with >105 colony-forming units/ml mutans streptococci (MS) at baseline, were assigned randomly into one of three parallel study groups: xylitol+funoran gum (group A), sucrose gum group (group B), and control group (no gum have been provided; group C). The pH value, flash weight, and MS of dental plaque were recorded at baseline and after 2 weeks of treatment. A statistically significant reduction (p
