Background: Herbal mouthwashes carry a wide array of advantages such as antimicrobial properties, antioxidant properties and more. They are affordable and have minimal or no side effects. They are more efficient than commercially available mouthwashes in the market.
Objectives: The aim of this study was to compare and to analyze the antimicrobial efficacy of green tea mouthwash, neem mouthwash, homeopathic (Frezyderm) mouthwash, rexidine mouthwash on dental plaque.
Materials and Methods: This is a double-blinded, random controlled research study conducted in the Department of Periodontics. A total of 200 patients were selected randomly, comprising of four groups (Group-I:green tea, group-II-:neem sticks, Group-III: homeopathic (Frezyderm) mouthwash and group-IV: rexidine mouthwash) with gingival index score II. Saliva samples were collected on at baseline and on day 10 and 20 and microbial colony count was done. The data obtained was statistically analyzed using SPSS version 26 with ANOVA test.
Results: Microbial colonies were reduced better in Group IV on the day 10, whereas on day 20, greater reduction was observed in Group II with the difference was statistically significant.
Conclusion: Neem mouthwash formulation had better effects as compared to other three mouthwashes and it could overcome the disadvantages of other mouthwashes as well.

Aim: Purpose of our research is to study the release of nickel as well as chromium ions from orthodontic wires in patients who are using teeth whitening mouthwashes.Methodology: In vitro, experimental study was carried out on 50 orthodontic wires of same length of SS, and NiTi. The samples were immersed in Oral B and Listerine (20 each) for 1, 6, 24, and 168 h. 10 samples immersed in distilled water served as the control group. Atomic absorption spectroscopy served to compute the number of released ions.Results: Nickel ions were released from both wires at all time-points; the highest amount was in Listerine and the lowest in Oral B mouthwashes. The process of release of chromium from the SS wire was the same as that of nickel. However, the release trend in NiTi wires was not uniform.Conclusion: Listerine caused the highest release of ions. Oral B showed the lowest amount of ion release.
